Samsung QLED vs LG OLED – Flagship TV Shootout

We compare two of the finest televisions that 2017 has to offer: the Samsung QLED and LG OLED.

Samsung’s brand new QLED line of TVs is a series coined by the company that means “quantum light emitting diode”. The new branding is an attempt to distinguish this TV as Samsung’s most premium television and has the capacity to produce an image that’s brighter than an OLED TV. The QLED suffers from an acute viewing angle, that requires the viewer to be in the middle of the TV, and could pose a problem if there are multiple people watching it.

With LG’s OLED TV, the image is produced by starting with perfect black. With true blacks being produced, it’s hard to beat the OLED in terms of picture quality. The color is spot on straight out of the box, and its motion is smoother than the QLED.

Although each TV has their strengths and weaknesses, the Samsung QLED and LG OLED both rock a well functioning on-screen interface, but we still have to give it to LG’s OLED TV, with its amazing, true black picture quality.

    i just bought a oled n i just think that the colors just arnt thst bright like when a reeces candy comercial comes on the screen is orange but it just seems to be a dull color and yellows just dont pop like i think it should. now when it comes to the blacks it is amazing but for 2400$ i just dont think the colors are quite as brilliant as they should be. im going to go back to best buy n walmart to see there display models again. i mesn before i bought i thought the display models were out of this world with depth perseption n all n just not quite feeling it at home im runnning it off dish network n an hdmi cord does anyone know if you use the fiber optic line if it makes a better picture or not

    Great, when they're 1500-1700 dollars I'll buy one. That's gonna be a while.

    Almost bought a LG until I ran into the numerous complaints about burn in. I'll take Samsung's made up 'QLED' before I take a LG's burn in.

    Hi guys the only people who an really tell the difference from these superior pictures are under ten year olds with there brand new eyes so as you can expect these young people can not afford to buy a TV. Now the older people really can not tell the difference between hd and ulhdtv and they can afford these tv's. unless you have had both eyes with replacement lenses? cataract replacement you will probably not notice the difference from HD to ULHD your eyes were best when you were young, so what is happening in these tv adverts are telling  you what you should see on a tv screen. and you believe them but the only people that can really see the difference are children with there new eyes. The only time you see it is on a cinema screen. so do not believe all this crap hype.

    How can I trust Samsung when I bought a Samsung 8000 series 4K- ULTRA-HD and turn out it was not 4K because it needed an adoptar , was not HDCP 2.2, . Waste of money. The reviews should be considered before what Samsung advertises. Plus the picture went out as well. When I reported to Samsung, they said ïm sorry nothing they can do´.

    I have compare at home 48h a Samsung QLED and a LG OLED. At first i really like the picture on QLED. But after some Hourse i was see this perfect kontrast, exellent motionblur handling and nature colors on OLED. Since this comparision i cant look to a QLED, its just brigther but the Kontrast is damn low and the colours are very cheap and over looking. I think Samsung LED Q is a very aggrassiv Marketing Trick, but havent any Chance to catch the Tron of OLED!

    I own an LG 65c7p and also the samsung q6fn. No comparison actually. OLED still wins especially in dark scenes. HDR in q6 is not so bright, whereas colors in LG c7p pop out more in dark scenes because of perfect black. The disparity is so huge to the point that i would rather not watch an HDR / Dolby Vision show unless i watch it on my OLED

    I play a lot of Xbox so I think I will have to go with the Samsung, I heard the OED has burnin issues.

    Don't buy oled if you watch sky news (or any other channel with scrolling along the base). After 17 months of normal viewing my Logik 55" oled has severe screen burn along the bottom and a large round circular screen burn in the centre (caused, I assume, by the fact that on most channels a fairly static face is centred). This has rendered my expensive tv virtually unwatchable. Logik say screen burn is caused by leaving the television on pause for many hours (untrue) and anyway is not covered by warranty. BE WARNED – DO NOT BUY OLED!! Check you tube and internet for many, many similar comments.

    both TVs are junk google Samsung TV black screen or LG screen no picture both and you will see both manufactures from Korea and they end up breaking within 2 years or after the warranty…. 1980 tube TVs will last 20 years
