Upscaling capabilities- best tv comparison

SD Channels

Let’s talk about upscaling capabilities. All three- Sony, Samsung, and LG have average upscaling of SD channels. Sony gives the best upscaling among these three, but there is no vast difference.

HD Channels

All the three TVs perform amazingly in HD channels but Sony provides a slightly better upscaling.  Samsung and LG are not far behind as Sony’s upscaling is only slightly better. We played both SD and HD channels with an HD set-top box.

Upscaling of 720p Movies-

For making this best tv comparison, we tested upscaling by plugging in a USB or Hard drive and playing different video formats in varied resolutions. The first was 720p and all three TVs performed well with good upscaling in 4K formats.

In 1080p format also all three TVs perform amazingly. Their upscaling was brilliant.

All three TVs play 4k content with USB very well. The upscaling was amazing in all three an there were no issues.

Viewing Angles- best tv comparison

The same footage was played from the front and extreme sides. The results were absolutely different on all three TVs. First LG TV- it produces brilliant colours in front.
The vibrancy and blacks are good as it is a VA panel. VA panel produces amazing blacks. But there is a 25% of colour and brightness washout on extreme sides.  
Samsung produces good and warm colours with deep blacks in front as it has a bright panel. There is no issue in the front but there is a washout of up to 25% in colours and brightness on extreme sides.
This is the basic property of a VA panel.  
Sony produces truly magnificent and life-like vibrant colours at the front angle. This IPS panel TV shows amazing colours and deep blacks.
The brightness and colours are 90% the same on extreme sides as it is an IPS panel.
We didn’t expect such an amazing performance of colours and blacks in extreme sides.

REAL TESTS- best tv comparison

Let’s do the real testing in this best tv comparison. LG TV had controlled blooming. Samsung has the most whereas Sony has the least blooming. In the grey uniformity test, we checked it on 20%, 40%, 60%, 80%, and 100% grey screen. All three have good grey uniformity with no issues.

There were floating stars on all the tree TVs during the Stress Test however, the Halo is different. LG is on number 2, Samsung ion third and Sony is on number 1. Then we did the Halo Test. Sony has the least Halo, LG has slightly more Halo whereas Samsung has the most Halo. Pause or reduce the speed of the video to notice the Halo carefully. The HDR content was fantastic as all three support HDR10. All three TVs play HDR content on Youtube amazingly.

REMOTE CONTROL- best tv comparison

LG UP 7500 has a simple fully functional remote with Hotkeys- Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney Hotstar, and Movies. It lacks a voice assistant button. Magic Remote can be bought separately from the installation team for ₹900. Some people are getting it for ₹2000-₹2500. Contact LG Customer support to negotiate its price.   Samsung has given a minimalist design remote control with voice assistant support. It has three hotkeys- Samsung, Amazon Prime, and Samsung Plus.  Sony provides a fully functional remote control with 4 hotkeys- Youtube, Youtube Music, Netflix, and Amazon Prime. There is a dedicated button for voice assistants too.

LG UP7500

The picture quality is the most significant character in this best tv comparison. First LG- it has amazing picture quality. The colours are amazing and quite close to the natural picture profile. We’d say they are saturated colours. Its blacks and contrast ratio are average.

Nevertheless, the blacks are still good. Its HDR performance is fantastic with no issues. Its motion blur is controlled. Every 4K TV has a similar motion blur no matter it is a budget brand or an established brand TV. This motion blur is OK. Its upscaling is good. This TV plays all kinds of formats amazingly. It has Auto Low Latency mode which is good for gamers.


Samsung produces warm colours. It produces bright picture quality as its panel is bright. Its blacks are deep due to its good contrast ratio. Overall, the viewing performance is good with good HDR performance. The quality of LEDs in the panel is fantastic which makes this panel bright. However, it has more motion blur as compared to a normal TV. You won’t see 2 objects but as compared to Sony and LG, Samsung’s motion blur is slightly high which is not a cause of concern.


Let’s talk about Sony’s picture quality and we will use one word to describe it- Magnificent. It has amazing colours with an absolutely natural profile. Despite the IPS panel, it produces good blacks. You will be shocked to see this panel performing so well. It has good colours and contrast.

There is no issue with its picture quality. Its HDR performance is excellent. Even a slightly better picture quality brings a tremendous change in the overall picture quality. Its upscaling capability is better than the other two TVs, especially in SD and HD channels.

This is a big pro of this TV. Its audio quality is fantastic (which is a pro). Its 20W speaker produces extremely good audio. If you are a regular viewer and you don’t need cinematic sound, then this 20W audio is perfect. No soundbar is required with it. Its IPS panel has good picture quality and good viewing angles and there is no issue with it

CONS- best tv comparison

It has medium bezels and not slim bezels which are there in all the latest budget TVs. Skip this TV if it is a con for you. It doesn’t support Dolby Vision. Dolby Vision can not be supported with any device. Dolby Vision is a panel’s feature and thus it can’t be achieved if that panel doesn’t have Dolby Vision Support. This TV is not apt for people who watch Dolby Vision content on Netflix.  It has fewer connectivity options. The set-top box, gaming console, and soundbar can’t be plugged in together via HDMI port as it has only 2 HDMI ports. 90% of the time a VA panel is shipped. It produces good colours and blacks but only from straight viewing angles. There will be a 25% colour and brightness loss on extreme sides. This is the basic property of a VA panel. You should keep this in mind.  Before discussing Samsung TVs cons hear out a pro- its thin-bezel design looks extremely premium. Now cons- it doesn’t support Dolby Vision. Skip it if you watch Dolby Vision content extensively.  Its audio quality is average. A soundbar is significant if you place the 55-inch model in a big room.  Its viewing angles are average as it is a VA panel. You will see a 25% colour and brightness loss which is a basic property of a VA panel.  Its colour profile is warm and not natural. LG’s profile is very close to a natural profile. It has a bright panel. Its contrast ratio and blacks are good but LG has better colours.  There is only one difference between AUE70 or Crystal Pro and the AUE60 Crystal model- in AUE60; a separate button for voice assistant is not given. Only Crystal Pro has voice assistant support. Think before you decide. It has a medium bezel design and not a thin-bezel design. It lacks the support of Dolby Vision. All these three budget models of LG, Samsung and Sony does not support Dolby Vision.  It has 3 HDMI ports but no eARC port. The lack of an eARC port is highly disappointing. Otherwise, there is no issue with connectivity options as there are 2 USB ports and other essential ports with dual-band wifi.  Its Motion Flow XR100 technology doesn’t create any notable effect. We will say it is a con as there was no significant reduction in motion blur.  Last but not least- its price is slightly high.

The Grand Question of the best tv comparison

Now comes the grand question after the best tv comparison- which TV should you buy? We buy a TV for its good picture quality. Sony is slightly costly but has really good picture quality. For a good branded budget TV, both Samsung and LG are appropriate. But should you buy Samsung or LG or a budget brand TV?

The life of a budget brand TV is approx 5 years. Exceptions are always there but in most cases, after 5 years, the panel or colours of the budget brand TV will become problematic. This generally doesn’t happen with Samsung and LG panels. Therefore, you must go for Samsung or LG instead of a budget brand. The choice is yours. Budget TVs are perfect for people with low budgets. However, if you can slightly increase your budget, then we highly recommend you go for either Samsung or LG.
