If you are one of those people who go to department stores to see the latest in smart TVs, you will have noticed that among the devices on display, the LG and Samsung brands stand out, not only for their attractive design, but also for the quality of the images that they project as promotional content.
Actually, both brands are considered high-end, mainly because of the advanced screen technologies they use.
They are the OLED and QLED technologies promoted by LG and Samsung respectively.
LG OLED screens
And it is necessary to start with LG’s OLED because it is undoubtedly the one that offers colors with better definitions.
Thanks to the absence of background lighting in the manufacture of these screens: each pixel of an OLED panel has independent lighting that turns on or off according to the color that you want to represent on the screen, which allows depth to be achieved for vital colors such as black, something that in turn translates into better overall brightness and contrast.
In addition, its composition is dominated by organic materials that help reduce its dimensions and energy consumption.
Samsung QLED screens
But there’s also no denying the success of Samsung’s QLED display technology.
The limitations of LED backlighting in true-to-life color reproduction are offset by higher brightness levels, resulting in a better viewing experience in bright environments.
In addition, the presence of inorganic materials in their manufacture makes such screens more durable and stable.
LG versus Samsung according to their functions
As for their control system, both brands of televisions have very intuitive modes of operation.
LG smart TVs are controlled through the WebOS operating system, compatible with the main streaming platforms, both video and music, including Netflix, YouTube, Amazon Prime Video, Spotify, among many others that can be installed from your store of applications called the Content Store.
WebOS is compatible with wireless transmission protocols such as Miracast and Airplay, supports Bluetooth technology and remote control from a smartphone, among other features.
On the other hand, the software that governs Samsung QLED smart TVs is Tizen, an operating system that works very similarly to WebOS.
Among its functions, the presence of the Smart Hub platform stands out, granting access to the main entertainment and gaming services, which can be installed and uninstalled according to the user’s preferences.
It also offers support for Miracast and AirPlay, incorporates Bluetooth technology and allows remote control through smartphone applications.
In terms of sound quality, both LG OLED televisions and those that make up the Samsung QLED line have unbeatable sound thanks to Dolby Atmos, spatial audio technology with which the recent film and musical productions that are already part of part of the catalog of services such as Netflix and Apple Music.
Finally, both lines of smart TVs have operating systems that are constantly updated (automatically or manually) in order to integrate new functions or correct certain deficiencies and security flaws.
