Sony X95K vs Samsung QN95B Appearance Design​

Both the Sony X95K and Samsung QN95B TVs feature an extremely thin exterior design and their metallic sheen will give you a real sense of quality.

The Sony X95K and Samsung QN95B have different support methods. Sony A95K has an adjustable stand with metal feet. It holds the TV well, and it can be adjusted to three different positions and perfectly placed for bar speakers without blocking the view.

On the back of the TV, Sony X95K features a checkerboard design and has a cover to help manage cables. Its input ports are set on the side and underneath. If the TV is placed on a table, the plastic cover hides the cables to make the space neater.

The back of the Samsung QN95B is very neat, with only four speakers and a herringbone textured finish visible. Its inputs are located on the side of the included One Connect box, not on the back of the TV, and the One Connect box can be mounted on a stand or on the wall and connected to the TV via a cable. It seems a little tricky that it doesn't have cable management.
