Samsung Q90 4K QLED TV vs. LG C9 OLED TV 4.5

What a difference one letter makes. The terms OLED and QLED may look very similar but are two entirely different beasts. In our QLED vs. OLED battle, we compare Samsung's best 4K LED TV for 2019, the Q90, with LG's C9 OLED.

LG's 2019 OLED TVs now offer A.I. ThinQ, which is powered by the Alpha 9 Gen 2 processor and add Amazon Alexa support. The C9 OLED TVs will start rolling out in April.

Samsung's Q90 QLED for 2019 is the best 4K TV Samsung has ever made, packed with smart user-friendly features to make installation and use easy.

Samsung's QLED line of TVs is a series coined by the company that means "quantum light emitting diode". The branding is an attempt to distinguish this TV as Samsung's most premium television and has the capacity to produce an image that's brighter than an OLED TV.

With LG's OLED TV, the image is produced by starting with perfect black. With true blacks being produced, it's hard to beat the OLED in terms of picture quality. The color is spot on straight out of the box, and its motion is smoother than the QLED.

Hell yes, re-upload! Sort of. Scrub to 8:20 and watch. Still have questions? I'll be around to answer them here in the comments. Give me a while, though, because I am about to take off for the day and may not be back on until tomorrow AM.

Worth mentioning now that the LG OLEDs have G-Sync via the latest firmware update?
Only because you mention the Samsung has FreeSync and the LG doesn't.

Lg Oled has always looked on the cool side out of the box to me. I just lean toward warm in settings. I'v never seen green tint on one.
