OLED's don't have dimming zones, I think you have suffered from information overload.
Sony has the best color accuracy out of the box, so close calibration isn't really needed, the best image processing, and motion handling, doesn't do black crushing which is bad on the LG, and it's brighter. This is why the sony is recommended for people who mainly watch movies and tv.

The LG is recommended for people who mostly want gaming performance, lower input lag, and the features high end gamers want like 120hz on 4 inputs and vrr, freesync gsync, but I've seen a lot of gamers give up on their LG and return it because in certain games black crush is a deal breaker and gets you repeatedly killed.

If you can get your LG calibrated then you can get close to the best of both worlds, it's just the default settings that aren't calibrated properly or to the level of the sony, but nothing will make the LG motion handling or image processing better than the sony.

Having said this they're both really close in performance and I would just go with whichever one you get the best deal on unless you are sensitive to things like motion handling issues or skin tones being a little off or dead set on gaming features.

The most important thing to note is there is no perfect tv, you will have something to complain about with any option here. even if it's like me and I'm mostly complaining about how the sony processor cannot magically fix low streaming quality of most content.

I'm glad I got my a80j 77 super cheap on that secondipity sale otherwise I'd be kicking myself wondering why I paid so much just to see all the flaws in image resolution and compression from low quality streaming services.

Most everything streaming on line is much lower quality than either of these sets is capable of. Kinda like paying for a Ferrari to use as a city commuter in bumper to bumper traffic every day.

I also miss being able to watch the news free of worry of burn in, now I'm running dual tv's so I can have my cake and my news too.

after the recent $150 Costco Cash card, the final cost of my LG C1 65-inch from Costco was only $1229.(plus tax)

Is this Sony OLED TV better or worse than my LG C1?

I'm asking because I used to be a Sony TV fanbody, but I haven't owned a Sony TV in many years. Frown
I'm in the market for a 77 inch OLED and it's either c1 lg or a80j Sony. From what I've heard, if you game a lot then LG all the way.
If you use the TV more for movies and tv shows then Sony.

Although both are fairly close

The a80J is the best out of all 3. You can use rtings.com to see what's ideal for you.

If you can find a80j for cheaper, just buy that.. practically identical with no bump in brightness compared to LG C1 to C2 or G1 to g2..

I bought LG c1 77" in December 2021 for $2.8k from Costco. After owning it for six months in a bright regularly used room, I love it and it's enough however I recommend getting the Sony (based on reviews it's brighter than C1), or the C2. primarily if the Stevie will be in a room that has sunlight and constant usage.

For gaming purposes (I'm a huge gamer, xbox and ps5, there really aren't a lot of games that will utilize the 120hz, and "easy to control game settings" are ok). Good to have but not a dealbreaker. Games like spiderman, gta have nominal differences vs brightness issue. Although gaming is annoying when it's direct sunlight.

Competitive games like rocket league I generally play on a smaller screen (24-27")…I play way better then having to move my head to see the whole screen in a split second.

Lastly the OS it's fine, it's faster than the previous generations but for this price point I would expect it to be a lot more quicker.

Have the 77 inch everything is *chef's kiss* except... Gaming. If VRR is enabled on the XSX, you don't get Dolby Vision. Dimming zones are still enabled but it forces the screen mode to be in game mode. If Dolby is enabled, 120hz is turned off. Tradeoffs unfortunately. I keep VRR on and just use regular HDR. So IF you want the best gaming experience, LG is the way to go. Having the B9 as well as the A80J I have to say the motioning processing is noticably better. You have to watch both to understand.

The 77 need to drop in price already! It's imminent, definitely by next year, and probably much sooner.

Many still have a80j 77 stock, and matter of time before they are sub 1800.

Might just do the microcenter for $1799. I trust their refurb and most of the time they are new or truly open box..
