As a new generation of consoles enters the market in 2020, the Sony X900H Bravia and LG NANO90 televisions, among others, have moved somewhat further into focus. Both are said to have been excellently designed for gaming and also deliver a very well-rounded overall performance. But is that really the case, or do you have to take a few factors into account when buying a TV to ensure that your own needs are not neglected? At first glance, it is clear that the two competitors are very different, which is already evident from the display used. As so often, it is the battle between IPS panels and VA panels that is being fought this time between the Japanese company Sony and the Korean company LG.

The Sony X900H Bravia is a great TV for almost every purpose. The VA panel has deep and even blacks with a good contrast ratio of 4800:1. As a result, it shows an excellent picture quality in dark rooms, which the IPS panel of the NANO90 cannot even come close to. On the other hand, the X900H has a very narrow viewing angle at which the colors look washed out even at a slighty oblique viewing angle. Because the Sony TV can become brighter than its competitor, its picture quality is similarly good in bright rooms, but the higher peak brightness makes HDR content look better. Both TVs have a lot of features, so it is not surprising that, in addition to Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos, they also come with a well-developed smart operating system.

Equipped with an IPS panel, the NANO90 shows a similarly good performance as the X900H Bravia. However, it has a wide viewing angle, which makes it much more flexible in use. It also allows several people to play simultaneously on the NANO90, which is not really possible on the X900H due to fading colors. Therefore, playing the new FIFA with your friends on the PS5 or Xbox Series X is probably a better and fairer experience on the NANO90. Both TVs have everything you need for gaming. The motion handling of the X900H is slightly superior, but otherwise both TVs have a similarly good gaming performance. HDMI 2.1 is available which also includes an Auto Low Latency Mode and a Variable Refresh Rate.

Our conclusion:
Would you prefer a wider viewing angle, or better image quality?

Because of the different panels, the two TVs could not be more different. The overall performance looks quite similar on our comparison chart, but the LG NANO90 can only compete in a few points against its Japanese counterpart. Its IPS panel has the advantage of a wide viewing angle, which is especially needed if the TV is to be used in a setup where the couch is not exactly facing the TV, or if many people want to look at the TV at the same time, as is the case with multiplayer gaming. Otherwise, you should really choose the X900H Bravia, which has a clearly better picture quality and does not show the dirty screen effect – which is unfortunately clearly visible on the NanoCell TV and is especially annoying when watching sports. The overall performance is simply more rounded, so in this comparison it can cope with the flaw of the narrow viewing angle. If you are looking for a TV for gaming, both TVs are a good choice. Due to the slightly better motion handling of the X900H, it also has a slight advantage here, but otherwise the two TVs show a very similar performance.

If you want to have a good picture quality while gaming and still have a wide viewing angle, you’ll probably have to get a QLED or an OLED, because the next more expensive TV from Sony’s Bravia series, the XH95, has a wide viewing angle, but unfortunately a subpar next gen gaming performance.
