If you prioritize picture quality for movies in a darker room, the Sony A80J with its OLED display excels in contrast and color accuracy. However, if you're more interested in a TV that handles well in a bright room and offers good upscaling for watching news or sports, along with slightly better sound quality due to the larger speaker size, the Sony X93L might be the better choice. Additionally, think about whether the price difference is justified for the OLED's better viewing angles and black levels. If these qualities are less critical and cost is a significant factor, then the Sony X93L offers a solid experience for its price. Give Feedback
