Choose the LG C3 if you prioritize perfect black levels and viewing angles, making it a superb option for movies and gaming, especially in darker environments. It might not be as bright in well-lit rooms compared to the Samsung QN90C. The Samsung QN90C might be the better choice if you often watch TV in a bright room and care about vibrant HDR highlights, as it performs better in these conditions. However, it has narrower viewing angles and may not achieve the same black levels as the LG C3. Both TVs are similarly priced, and each excels in different use cases. Give Feedback
