The Samsung S90C is typically much less expensive than the Sony A95L and is a solid choice for gaming with a slightly lower performance in bright rooms. However, the Sony A95L has a slight edge in picture quality and sound (with better speakers), which may be more appealing if watching movies or series is a priority and cost is less of a concern. Both models offer great performance for various content and have a good viewing angle and reflection handling, making them suitable for a range of room conditions. Give Feedback
