The Sony X950G is the strongest of all Sony LCD TVs. Thanks to the VA panel and Full Array Local Dimming, the picture quality in dark rooms is very good. It also handles reflections very well, making it equally suitable for bright rooms. However, the contrast is not as high as with the Q70R.

The most outstanding strength of the Samsung Q70R is undoubtedly gaming. Its input lag is record low, so few other televisions can keep up. In addition, the black is very deep in dark rooms and the resulting image is very even thanks to VA Panel and Full Array Local Dimming. The contrast of the Q70R is also much higher.

The Sony X950G and the Samsung Q70R offer comparable performance, but there are some core characteristics where the TVs differ from one another. The X950G can handle reflections better, while the Q70R offers a better black due to the increased contrast, which is especially apparent in dark rooms. In dark rooms both perform well, in bright rooms the X950G is even better. This also applies to HDR. On the other hand, the Q70R is a better choice when it comes to gaming.
