If you prioritize gaming performance and want to have a higher refresh rate for smoother gameplay, the Sony A95K would be better for you as it has a better gaming score and offers a higher refresh rate. Also, the Sony A95K excels in a bright room and has better sound quality due to its great speakers. However, if your budget is tight and you want to save some money without sacrificing too much on quality, you might prefer the LG A2, as both TVs are similarly priced, but the LG might offer slightly less in terms of advanced features and performance. For general content like movies and TV shows, both TVs will perform well, but the Sony A95K offers slightly better picture quality. Both TVs excel in dark room environments and support common HDR formats, ensuring good performance when watching content with high dynamic range. Give Feedback

Techradar

Al Griffin | August 2022
"Movie fans will find a lot here to love, and the A2 series’ low prices compared with other OLED TVs will keep their wallets happy. Images had the deep blacks and detailed shadows typical of the best 4K TVs, while colors looked both fully saturated and clean. Also, the A2’s out-of-box picture performance in Filmmaker mode was mostly accurate, requiring only slight adjustments to optimize brightness, color, and contrast."

Caleb Denison | March 2022
"A95K will be one of the highest-performing TVs of the year, if not the hottest TV of 2022. The color on the Sony A95K is the most accurate I have ever seen. Certain hues of red just haven’t been produced on a TV … until now. Perhaps with deeper scrutiny, I may one day find some nit to pick, but in the time I was able to spend with the A95K, I was simply thrilled."
