If you watch a lot of movies and appreciate deep blacks and vibrant colors, the LG B3 OLED will provide superior picture quality, especially in darker rooms. However, for well-lit rooms or if you're looking for more value for your money, the Sony X85J will offer good overall picture quality with higher brightness, which combats glare better than the LG B3. The Sony X85J will also be less prone to permanent burn-in, which can sometimes affect OLED TVs like the LG B3 when static images are displayed for extended periods. If cost is a major consideration and you still seek good performance, the Sony X85J is a strong choice, while the LG B3 excels in a premium viewing experience at a higher price point. Give Feedback
