If you have been wondering whether you should purchase a Samsung or Sony TV, you’re not alone. With so many brands and types of TVs available, it can be overwhelming to decide which one you want to buy. Unfortunately, asking whether to get a Samsung or Sony TV is such a broad question that it can be difficult to answer. However, if you are wanting some basic guidance to know which one to pick, RC Willey is here to help you out.
First of all, it’s important to remember that one brand is not necessarily going to be better with every single TV option. Both Sony and Samsung are known for the innovation and quality of their TVs, but you’ll need to do your research when it comes to specific TVs. I’ve come up with a short list of general information about each brand to give you a general ideas about each brand.
Sony vs Samsung TV
If you’re concerned about your TV keeping a low profile, the thickness (or thinness!) of your TV is important. Samsung is known for how thin their TV’s are. Their goal is to have the thinnest TVs possible, and they’ve gotten pretty close. Sony definitely still has thin TVs, but they aren’t as focused on slimming things down as Samsung.
The picture quality is really difficult to determine on brand alone. It would depend on the quality and price of TV within the brand. Samsung makes TVs that are very bright, which is helpful when trying to block out ambient sunlight. Sony’s picture quality is also reliably good, but like I said, it really depends on the quality of TV within each brand. This is something you may want to go into the store to check out for yourself.
Both Sony and Samsung offer quality Smart TVs. Sony’s Smart TVs are centered around Sony entertainment network interface. This means that in order to open apps like Netflix or Hulu you need to register your device with Sony by going onto Sony’s website. This is not difficult to do, but can be a hassle. Samsung has put a lot of emphasis in their Smart TV and their interface is extremely easy to use. One cool thing Samsung has done is include a universal search option so you can find content across any available app.
