How does this compare with Samsung's QLED displays?

Rtings compares the two here https://www.rtings.com/tv/tools/c...0r/585/782

Quote :
The Samsung Q70/Q70R QLED is slightly better than the Sony X900F. The Q70R has a slightly better dark room performance, thanks to the higher contrast ratio and better black uniformity. The Q70R is also better for gaming as it's packed with gaming goodies, like a lower input lag. The Sony X900F can get brighter in SDR and has slightly better reflection handling, which is great if you watch TV shows in a bright room with many lights. Also, motion is somewhat crisper on the Sony X900F thanks to the faster response time, which is great for watching fast-action sports.

I have this exact TV and I love it. The included Android TV pairs really well with my google home. Dolby Vision/HDR is great. I'd choose this over the Q70 after seeing them side by side, despite what rtings says.

I think Q70 is a 2019 model and can get little brighter..

Year of release doesn't really matter, it's more about the specific model. There are certain models from 3 years ago I would choose over many 2020 models today depending on the brand and specs.

I have brand loyalty to Sony because they earned their brand name and price premium through a half century of proving their products last, they use high quality Japanese capacitors and all of my Sony electronics still work. While initial quality on high end Samsungs is great, I personally just don't trust the brand as much as Sony. I've had Samsung monitors crap out because they used a cheap capacitor and the trust just isn't there for me yet. I realize this is anecdotal but it is my experience and drove why I chose a Sony over Samsung.

Review websites are great and I put a lot of weight on them as well but they are a bit like those JD Power awards that Chevy has been advertising the hell out of. It's great that your brand new car won awards when it was tested, but I personally put a lot of weight on longevity. I want to know what product is winning awards 10 years after purchase.

If you're worried about viewing angle then you don't want either the X900F or the Q70. They are equally as bad (5.2 and 5.3 on RTINGS). Watching them straight on though gives excellent results.

As far as using AndroidTV, I'm not a big fan. I have an X900F and operation tends to bog down occasionally. This is corrected by doing a reboot (hold down power button on remote 5 seconds until TV shuts off). Just turning off power doesn't shut it down completely.

I bought this TV from Greentoe in Nov 2018 ($1,449 and the cheapest was around $1900 at the time) and it is great!! So was their service!

The courier called me to setup a delivery a few days after they accepted.

The company was out of NYC that accepted my bid. I live in NJ. And they were a Sony authorized retailer. No issues with warranty and registration.

No major issues to date, maybe a little too bright at times. I used a few sites to calibrate it and everyone that comes over is amazed.

Pretty much decided to pay for the extra $400 premium for going from 82 to 85.. So, my budget is not allowing me to go beyond 900F or Q70 models for a 85 inch.. Either one of them at this stage...

I like androidTV and might have to buy Nvidia shield cost to be factored in for a Q70 buy. So was checking if the 900f android TV is good enough or need a dedicated player..

Wow...this is a great deal
This is a solid TV that really has no gotcha type issues

ie...Banding..DSE..Poor panel uniformity or consistency

Its a true 120hz panel and its get bright enough for solid HDR and the picture processing is very good
I own its a predecessor ..900E...which is basically the same Tv and I enjoy it as a bedroom TV

It is not a Z9D...which I also own...but the 900F is a great Tv

This was 50 dollars less in Black Friday. There are 2 generations newer than this. I expect a great deal on this TV to be at the 800$

I've adjusted mine and I haven't noticed any lags/slowdowns the past couple months. There are some settings that you can change to improve the responsiveness of the system. The reviews about lags were the one issue that worried me about this tv.
