You will agree with me that the television viewing experience has really changed, thanks to technology. TV makers around the world are coming up with amazing television sets that are just blowing minds all over.
Let say you are given two amazing television sets; the LG OLED and the Samsung QLED to choose from, which brand would you choose? Would go for the LG OLED or you will opt for Samsung QLED?
I will not tell you which among the two sets is the best for your viewing experience but at the end of this piece, you will have to choose which one suits you.
From the surface, you might think that the two sets are the same but deep within, they are as different as trying to compare a leopard to a lion.
There is no doubt that Samsung’s QLED is among the best with a lineup of bigger screens than ever encompassing different models. The best of them is the 98-inch behemoth and that which has been designed to look like a painting on the wall but they lack one thing; the picture quality.
When it comes to picture quality, ladies, and gentlemen, no brand beats the LG OLED. Various reviews are done on all the series delivered by LG Electronics the best picture qualities as compared to Samsung’s.
For 2019, I haven’t been able to test the new OLED or QLED but if I were to join my friends in the betting sector, I would place my bet on OLED to beat QLED once again this year.
Let me walk you through some simple basics that differentiate the two brands. First, what do OLED and QLED buzzwords stand for? OLED stands for the “organic light-emitting diode” while QLED is “quantum dot LED TV.” Here, LG OLED carries the day.
For your information, OLED is not LCD. It is fundamentally different technology from the major type of TV on the market today. QLED, on the other hand, is just a variation of LED LCD with the difference of a quantum dot film that has been added to “sandwich.” Who is king here? You say it.
How about “emission”, which one of them is better? Well, OLED is “emissive” while QLED is transmissive. By being emissive, its means the pixels in OLED emit their own light while for transmissive in QLED, it relies on a LED backlight. OLED carries the day here too.
The LG OLED is different from QLED because it does not use any LED backlight to produce light like in the case of QLED. OLED has its light produced by the millions of individual OLED sub-pixels.
OLED has better contrast and black level. One of the most important image quality factors is black level, and their emissive nature means OLED TVs can turn unused pixels off completely, for literally infinite contrast. QLED/LCD TVs, even the best ones with the most effective full-array local dimming, let some light through, leading to more washed-out, grayer black levels and blooming around bright sections.
With LCD-based displays, different areas of the screen can appear brighter than others all the time, and backlight structure can also be seen in some content. Even the best LCDs also fade, lose contrast and become discolored when seen from seats other than the sweet spot directly in front of the screen. OLED TVs have almost perfectly uniform screens and maintain fidelity from all but the most extreme angles.
From the brief distinctions above, which brand would you go for?
