The LG C1, at an upper midrange price, is often less expensive than the premium-priced Samsung S95B. However, the Samsung S95B has a higher overall picture quality, better performance for gaming, and a slightly better experience in bright rooms. Both TVs are excellent for dark room viewing, but the S95B may hold an edge due to its higher brightness. If you favor better sound and can stretch the budget, the S95B has great speakers and may provide a more complete premium viewing experience. On the other hand, if you're looking to save money and still get a quality product, the LG C1 is a very capable choice. Give Feedback

Business Insider

Steven Cohen | March 2023
"Samsung's S95B is easily one of the best high-end 4K TVs on the market. S95B is able to achieve industry-leading color performance and a brighter screen than typical OLEDs. In fact, the display's OLED color coverage is nearly in a class of its own. The S95B is a beautiful TV, even when it's off. The display has a pleasing, minimalist design with nearly bezel-less borders and an impressively thin profile."
