LG G1 vs Sony A90J Review

LG G1 and Sony A90J is the Flagship OLED TV in 2021 from LG and Sony. They are equally amazing 4K OLED TVs. As we have known, since they both use OLED panel, infinite contrast ratio and nearly perfect black uniformity becomes their main advantages. All of them make their performance in a dark room is unbeatable by LED TVS when they are used for watching movies in a dark room. Additionally, their nearly instant pixel response time also makes them have excellent performance in handling motion. And the other main advantage is the both have wide viewing angle coverage while their contrast ratio is infinite. As we have known, on LED TVs, a TV with IPS panel or ADS panel may also have good viewing angle coverage, but on the other hand they have poor contrast ratio. Lately, some TV with VA panel have used a special anti glare optical panel to improve their side viewing angle, but on this sacrifices their contrast ratio.

But of course, they are not perfect TV in all aspects. They are not as bright as premium LED TVs. Their SDR peak brightness is not so bright, so only bright enough for moderately-lit to dark room. Additionally, their SDR peak brightness is not also so bright, but still bright enough to bring small highlight in HDR. They may be not suitable when used in a bright room with tons of light, but in moderately lit to dark room, their picture quality is really amazing. The other shortcoming of OLED TVs including Sony A90J and L G1 is that they are vulnerable to permanent burn-in. So, you should prevent them to show static images for long time like play the same game over long time or for CCTV monitor.

As the flagship OLED TV of each of their the company that sold hundreds to thousands dollars more expensive than the lower model, of course, it offers some advantages over the lower series like LG C1 for the LG G1 or Sony A80J for the A90J, especially in features and design. As we have known, whether it is premium OLED TV or entry level OLED TVs, they use the OLED panels that have the same technical platform, so picture quality produced by them are not much different. And of course, design and features that distinguishes between premium OLED and entry level OLED. So, what features offered by these flagship OLED Ts and which is a better choice between the LG A1 and Sony A90J?

Design

As we have known, one of the point that sold by premium TV is about their design. And for this case, both of the LG G1 and Sony A90J have excellent design. Design of the LG G1 have the same concept to the Samsung the Frame where it is design in order to sit flush on the wall with a dedicated slim wall mount. Since it is actually specially designed to mount on the wall, it doesn’t come with stand. So if you want to place it on the table, you must by the stand separately. Additionally, the OLED G1 is also very thin where it only has around 2 cm of thickness. So, if you mount it on your wall, it looks very elegant that certainly will improve the aesthetic of your room. On the other hand, design of the Sony A90J is similar to the design of its predecessor, but it comes with a newly designed stand that offers more adjustably. This means, you can adjust the height of its stand to match to give the space of your sound bar. So, if you want place both of your Sony TV and Soundbar on the table, there is no area of the screen that is masked by the soundbar. Meanwhile, is the thickness of the LG G1 is same from top to bottom, the thickness of the Sony A90J is not the same at the center and top. Around a sixth of the top, the TV is very thin, but the rest, it is thicker, where it has around 4 cm of thickness where it is used for house of electronic part. Meanwhile, from the front, they look same where their screen both has a border around 1 cm.

Picture Quality

Contrast Ratio

There is no doubt about contrast ratio of the LG G1 and Sony A90J. Since they use OLED panel that has self-lighting pixel, the native contrast ratio of them is infinite. When they are displaying black in bright scene, the pixels in black area is completely off. So, there is no light emitted from black area at all, resulting nearly perfect black. The result, even they are set in a pitch dark room, black produced by them still looks really black. Indirectly, this also makes dark colors can also be shown accurately. So, dark scene of images will looks excellently on their screen, even if they are set in a dark room.

Winner: Draw

Local Dimming Performance

OLED TV Pixel Dimming

Since they both use OLED panel where its pixels can emit its own light individually, they both don’t have backlight, so they don’t also have local dimming. But even so, since their panel can switch on/off / dim their pixels individually, this is the same as they have FALD (full array local dimming) with the number of dimming zones is equal to the number of pixel. The result, when they are showing highlight in a dark scene, they both can handle blooming excellently. Of course, this is excellent for subtitles in movies where it can be shown very focus without blooming around it.

Winner: Draw

Screen Uniformity

In addition have infinite contrast ratio, OLED TVs including the LG G1 and Sony A90H also have nearly perfect black uniformity. When showing black screen with small cross white object, it can be shown perfectly without blooming around it. Meanwhile, except white cross object at the center, throughout the screen looks inky since there is no light emitted from their screen at all, even near bright object. In addition have nearly perfect black uniformity, they both also have great gray uniformity. When they are showing gray window test, throughout the screen looks very uniform with almost no dirty screen effect. Meanwhile, the darker the screen, their screen looks more uniform.

Winner: Draw

SDR Peak Brightness

Performance of the Sony A90J and LG G1 in term of black and dark scene may be excellent and there is no LED TVs can beat them. But on the contrary, in term of peak brightness, they are not as bright as premium LED TVs. Meanwhile, compare among them, their SDR peak brightness is not much different. With real SDR scene, the A90J can get around 295 nits while the LG G1 gets around 280 nits. With real scene, the LG G1 might be able to get brighter, but with white window test, the A90J can get a bit brighter. The Sony A90J gets its brightest peak brightness at 10% and white 25% white window where its gets around 480 nits for a short time and drop to around 460 nits after stabilized. On 2% window, it gets around 460 nits and slightly drops to around 450 nits for longer time. But even so, bright area increases, its peak brightness is dropped by its ABL where it gets around 350 nits on 50% white window and around 160 nits on 100% white window.

On the other hand, the LG G1 hits its peak brightness is on 2% white window where it gets around 410 nits for a short time and drop to around 395 nits for longer time. And the increasing bright areas, its peak brightness is dropped by its ABL where on 10%, 25%, 50%, and 100% window test, it gets around 406 nits, 365 nits, 300 nits, and 170 nits for a short time and slightly drops to around 395 nits, 390 nits, 350 nits, and 160 nits.

Ignoring their difference, their peak brightness is actually not so bright. Their peak brightness may be only enough to fight the glare in moderately-lit to dark room but not for bright room with tons of light. Keep in mind, their peak brightness is reached with certain setting by considering picture quality. Meanwhile, with other setting, they may be able to get brighter, but this will cause the picture is less accurate.

Winner: Draw

HDR Peak Brightness

Meanwhile, when coming with HDR content, they both can get much brighter. But even so, their peak brightness is not also much different. With real scene, the A90J can get around 710 nits while the OLED G1 gets around 730 nits. Nevertheless, with white window test, their brightness pattern is slightly different. The LG G1 gets its brightest peak brightness at 2% white window where it gets around 845 nits for a short time and drop to around 780 nits for longer time. On 10% white windows, its peak brightness is only a bit drops, which is around 830 nits for a short time and drops to around 775 nits for longer time. On the other hand, the Sony A90H gets its peak brightness on 10% white window where it hits around 840 nits for a short time and drops to around 480 nits for longer time. Meanwhile, on 2% white window, it only gets around 800 nits for a short time and drops to around 750 nits for longer time.

Just like their SDR peak brightness, to save power consumption, the increasing bright area, and their peak brightness will be dropped by their ABL (Auto Brightness Limiter). On 25%, 50% and 100% white window, the LG G1 hits around 425 nits, 280 nits, and 170 nits for short time and a bit drops to around 405 nits, 270 nits, and 160 nits for longer time. Meanwhile, for the Sony A90J, it gets around 620 nits, 325 nits, and 180 nits for a short time and slightly drops to around 600 nits, 320 nits, and 175 nits for longer time.

With peak brightness achieved by them, can be ascertained, they actually can make small highlights pop they way they should in HDR. But unfortunately, they both have aggressive ABL, so bright areas cannot be shown as bright as small highlights. Additionally, since their HDR peak brightness is still below 1000 nits, you cannot enjoy true cinematic HDR experience like the intended. But even so, overall, their HDR peak brightness is great for OLED TVs.

Winner: Draw

Color Gamut

Both of the LG G1 and Sony A90J have outstanding color gamut.  In DCI P3 color space, their color coverage is nearly perfect where the LG G1 can cover almost 100% of both DCI P3 xy and uv. On the other hand, although not as wide as the OLED G1, color coverage of the Sony A90J in both DCI P3 xy and uv is also nearly perfect, that is around 98% of color space. Meanwhile, although not as perfect as in DCI P3, their Rec.2020 color coverage is also good. In Rec.2020 uv, the A90J can cover around 72% while the LG G1 covers around 77% of color space.  Meanwhile, in Rec.2020 xy, the LG G1 covers around 73% while the Sony A90J covers around 71%.  This means, the LG G1 can produce a bit wider than the A90J. But even so, this can be caused by panel variance. Ignoring their differences, overall, their color gamut is really outstanding, which means great for HDR content, whether it is formatted in HDR10 or Dolby Vision.

Winner: LG G1

Color Volume

While their color gamut is outstanding, color volume of the Sony A90J and LG G1 is only decent. They may be able to produce deep, dark shades of colors fairly well due to its infinite contrast ratio, but they both cannot produce saturated bright colors. You need to know, OLED TV have WRGB sub pixel structure that means there is an additional white sub-pixels to standard RGB sub-pixels. The use of white sub pixel may make them can produce pure white, but on the other hand, it will de-saturate very bright colors. Furthermore, since they have limited HDR peak brightness also makes them struggle to produce very bright colors. But even so, in general, their color volume is great and combined to their wide color gamut, this makes color of HDR images displayed on their screen looks fairly accurate. Meanwhile compare among them, the LG G1 is a bit better than the A90J. But even so, this is more due to the OLED G1 have a bit wider color gamut than the A90J that might be caused by panel variance.

Winner: LG G1

Color Gradient

Both of the Sony A90J and LG G1 have excellent color gradient. But even so, compare among them, although they both already support 10 bit panel, color gradient of the A90J is better than the OLED G1. On the screen of the OLED G1, color gradient looks very great with only a bit banding in darker colors, especially in dark greens or dark grey. But even so, this should not be noticeable in normal content. But even so, if you feel banding still bother you, you can set Smooth Gradation to “High” or “Medium” to remove banding, but comes at the cost of losing fine details in certain scenes.  While color gradient of the LG G1 is already great, color gradient of the A90J is much better. There may be still some minor banding on shade of green and grays, but it is less noticeable than LG G1. Additionally, like the OLED G1, the Sony A90J also have Smooth Gradation feature that can help to remove banding.

Winner: Sony A90J

Side Viewing Angle

OLED vs LED Side Viewing Angle

The image is only an illustration

As expected from OLED TVs, the LG OLED G1 and Sony A90J have excellent viewing angle coverage. Black produced will still look consistent, even if you watch TV from extremely wide angle, which is around 70 degrees. Additionally, OLED panel is also able to maintain brightness level of images up to around 65 degrees of center and front. This makes brightness level of images displayed on its screen will looks fairly consistent, even if you watch TV from side. Color may still shift started narrow angle, which is around 25 degrees off center and front, but it just look washed out at wide angle, which is around 65 degrees off center. Overall, their side viewing angle is great, better than a LED TV with IPS or ADS panel or VA panel with dedicated antiglare optical layer.

Winner: Draw

Motion Performance

The other major advantage offered by OLED TVs including the Sony A90J and LG G1 is about their pixel response time. As we have known, OLED panel has nearly instantaneous pixel response time.  This makes they both can handle motion excellently. When playing fast moving object, the picture looks very clear with almost no noticeable motion blur following fast moving object. Blur motion that may be visible is more about persistence blur that caused by the way our eyes track movement.  Nevertheless, the instant pixel response times may make motion look very clear, but on the other hand, this cause low frame rate content like 24p movies can appear to stutter. So, to minimize it, you must interpolate it to 60 Hz or 120 HZ by enabling their motion interpolation. Additionally, enabling BFI (Black Frame Insertion) mode can also help to minimize image stuttering.

OLED vs LED TV Motion Blur

The image is only an illustration

Since OLED panel doesn’t have backlight, to dim their screen, they both don’t use PWM (Pulse Width Modulation). They can still emulate PWM dimming system of LED TVS by turning their pixels on/off. The result, their screen is no flicker-free. This is due to since they have 120 Hz refresh rate panel, there is slight dip in brightness every 8 ms. Fortunately, it is very hard to notice so this should not be a problem in normal content. But even so, sometimes screen flickering is needed to help make motion clearer. And for this purpose, they both have a BFI (Black Frame Insertion) mode that can improve their motion appearance by matching the frequency of flickering pattern and frame rate of content. Both of LG G1 and Sony A90J have an optional 60 Hz and 120 Hz BFI mode. This means, enabling their 60 Hz BFI mode will make their screen flicker at 60 Hz and this is good for 60 Hz. As well as when you playing 120 fps content, enabling their 120 Hz BFI mode will improve their motion appearance. To enable their 60 Hz BFI mode, for the OLED G1, you just need set “Motion Pro” to “High” and for the A90J” you just need set “Motion Flow” to “Custom” and Clearness to “3”. Meanwhile, to enable their 120 Hz BFI mode, for the LG G1, you must set “OLED Motion Pro” to “Medium” or “Low”, while for the Sony A90J, you just need set “Clearness” to “1” or “2” while “Motion Flow” is still set to “Custom”.

Both of the Sony A90J and LG G1 have native 120 Hz refresh rate panel, making them are able to play any content with native frame rate up to 120 Hz. Meanwhile, the advantage of the LG G1 is that it also already supports Variable Refresh Rate while the Sony A90J doesn’t support. As we have known, VRR technology can improve TV’s gaming performance by removing screen tearing. For this case, the VRR technology can range between 20 Hz to 120 HZ, no matter the resolution of the content. Additionally, its VRR can also work well with some Gaming features likes FreeSync, GSync, and HDMI Forum VRR.

Winner: LG G1

Inputs

Just like most premium TVs, both of the LG OLED G1 and Sony A90J are equipped with 4 HDMI ports as their major connectivity. All of their HDMI ports support HDMI 2.0, CEC, and HDCP 2.2. Meanwhile, although they both also support HDMI 2.1, but the difference between them is that all of HDMI ports of LG G1 support HDM 2.1 while there are only 2 ports of Sony A90J that support HDMI 2.1 (HDM 3,4). Meanwhile, to pass audio signal from audio source to soundbar or AV receiver, they both support ARC and eARC (HDMI 3 for A90J and HDMI 2 for LG G1). The advantage of the LG G1 is that its HDMI ports also support ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode) while the A90J doesn’t support.

Both of the LG G1 and Sony A90J also have 3 USB ports. But even so, the difference is that LG G1 doesn’t have USB ports while the Sony A90J has 1 USB 3.0 and the rest are USB 2.0. Additionally, they both also have 1 Tuner In, 1 Ethernet Port, and 1 Digital Audio Out (optical). Special for the A90J, it also has 1 Analog Audio Out (Mini Jack 3.5 mm) and 1 Composite In (Including adapter).

Meanwhile, talking about their input lags in Game Mode, the LG G1 has lower input lags than the Sony A90J.  For 60 fps games, regardless the resolution, input lags of the LG G1 is around 11 ms while the A90J is around 17 ms. With 120 fps games, the input lags of the LG G1 is around 6 ms, regardless the resolution of the games, while the A90J is round 12 ms for 1080p resolution and around 15 ms for 4K games. Meanwhile, in VRR mode, input lags of the LG G1 is around 5 ms. As we have known, the Sony A90J doesn’t support VRR. With their input lags, can be ascertained, the LG G1 is more responsive than the Sony A90J when used for playing games, no matter it is 60 fps or 120 fps games. On the other hand, although not as low as the OLED G1, input lags of the A90J is actually also low enough to make any games feel very responsive, even for fast paced games that requires fast reflexes.

Winner: LG G1

Smart TV and Features

WebOS 6.0 vs Google TV 10

As their Smart TV platform, the Sony A90J runs Google TV 10 while the LG G1 runs WebOS 6.0. Both of them are equally great Smart TV Platform. In this year, Google TV replaces the Android TV. But even so, their core is same. Google TV is very smooth and easy to navigate. In addition it has a lot of preinstalled of apps, it also has wide range apps to download. On the hand, WebOS 6.0 also runs very smoothly on the LG G1 and also easy to navigate. Just like Google TV, it also has a lot of preinstalled apps. And with its apps store called LG’s apps Store, you can directly download tons of apps from your LG TV. IN addition what offered by their smart TV platform, both of the LG G1 and Sony A90J also already supports voice navigation like Amazon Alexa and Google Home. Special for the LG G1, it also comes with its platform called LG ThinQ AI. That is not only that, they both also support some Apple apps like Apple SIri, AirPlay 2, Apple Home Kit, etc.

Sony vs LG Remote 2021

Meanwhile, as their controller, the LG OLED G1 comes with LG newly redesign magic remote. Functionally, it is similar to last year model where it has point and press feature, a built in microphone for voice navigation, and scroll wheel at the center of the remote. Additionally, in addition generally used buttons like “Number” buttons, “Volume” button, etc, it also have 4 dedicated buttons for Netflix, Amazon prime, Disney+, and LG Channel. Overall, LG Magic remote is great remote that make navigation is much easier. On the other hand, the Sony LG A90J comes with Sony’s voice remote. Just like LG remote, in addition generally used button, it also has 4 dedicated buttons for YouTube, Netflix, Disney+, and Amazon Prime.  Additionally, it also has built in microphone for voice navigation. But even so, unlike LG remote, it doesn’t have scroll wheel and point and press feature.

LG G1 is better in interface and navigation while the Sony A90J is better in apps and features provided. But even so, they are equally great Smart TV that offer great smart TV experience in your home.

Sound Performance

Sony Acoustic Surface Audio

An Illustration of Sony’s Acoustic Surface

As we see on comparison table above, to produce sound, the LG G1 relies on its built-in 4.2 speaker system with total sound output of 60 watts. On the other hand, the Sony A90J relies on its built-in 2.2 speaker system with total sound output of also 60 watts. Nevertheless, that distinguishes among them is the A90J comes with Sony’s unique sound technology called “Acoustic Surface Audio+”.  Unlike LG G1 or other TVS where they use conventional speaker for producing sound, the Acoustic Surface technology utilize screen of the TV for producing sound that driven by actuator. This is to give the impression that it is as if the sound is coming directly from the object. But even so, talking about their performance, the sound of OLED G1 has better frequency response while the A90J has better performance in handling distortion.

LG G1 vs Sony A90J Performance

For Watching Movies

The Sony A90J and LG OLED G1 are equally great TVs for watching movies in a dark room. Since they both have infinite contrast ratio, nearly perfect black uniformity, and pixel level dimming, their performance in a dark room is unbeatable by LED TVs. Meanwhile, their great ability in handling 24p judder and motion blur allowing you to watch fast movies clearly with almost no blur and judder-free. Additionally, they also have great 4K Up-scaling engine, so even though you watch movies from Blu Ray or DVD player that have lower resolution, you can enjoy them in 4K resolution with fine details are still preserved well.  But unfortunately, as we have discussed above, the instantaneous response time may make them able to handling motion greatly, but on the other hand, this cause low frame rate content can appear to stutter. So, if you bothered by images stuttering that may appear, you must enable their motion interpolation or BFI feature.

Winner: Draw

For Watching Sports

As long as you don’t use them in a bright room with a lot of light sources, their performance is equally great. In addition it has excellent picture quality, they also have nearly instantaneous response time. Combined to their BFI mode, this allows you to watch fast sports smoothly and clearly with almost no motion blur. Additionally, their wide viewing angle coverage is also good for wide seating arrangement, so you don’t need to worry if you want to watch a big game with a group of your family or friend. That is not only that, their excellent gray uniformity makes field of sports looks very well. A bit unfortunately, it has limited SDR peak brightness, so they may be not suitable to watch sports in a very bright room with a lot of light source. Nevertheless, their great reflection handling can help to reduce their issue with a glare that caused by their limited SDR peak brightness.

Winner: Draw

Video Games

When used for playing video games, the LG G1 is better than the Sony A90J. They may have excellent picture quality and great motion handling, allowing you to play fast games with excellent picture quality and smooth motion. But just we have discussed above, the LG G1 have lower input lags in Game mode, so can be ascertained, it is more responsive than the A90J and it will be more pronounced when they are used for playing fast paced games. The other advantages of the LG G1 is that it also have some features that can improve its gaming experience like VRR technology that is compatible with FreeSync, GSync, and HDMI Forum VRR. Additionally, all of its HDMI ports also already support ALLM that make it can automatically to switch to low latency mode like Game mode once a signal from a compatible game console is detected. On the other hand, Sony A90J doesn’t have these features. But even so, although not as great as the LG G1, performance of the A90J when used for playing games is also good.

Winner: LG G1

HDR Performance

As long as you don’t use them in a very bright room, you will enjoy great HDR experience with Sony A90J and LG G1. They support the same HDR format, which are HDR10, Dolby Vision, and HLG, allowing you to watch HDR content in some HDR format. Combination of their infinite contrast ratio, nearly perfect black, and pixel dimming level makes shadow details of HDR images can be shown greatly on their screen with almost no “crushed black”. Additionally, they also have excellent color gamut and good color volume, makes colors of HDR images can be shown fairly accurate in both dark and bright scene. Color gradient of HDR images also looks very smooth on their screen due its great performance in handling banding. Furthermore, although their HDR peak brightness is not as bright as premium LED TVS, but their HDR peak brightness is also bright enough to bring out small highlight in HDR. In general, their HDR performance is equally great. But compare among them, the Sony A90J is a bit better due it has better color gradient than the LG G1. Meanwhile, the advantage of the LG G1 in color gamut may be more caused by panel variance.

Winner: Sony A90J

Conclusion

Overall, performance and picture quality of the LG G1 and Sony A90J are not much different. Their picture quality is equally great, as well as their motion handling, viewing angle coverage, and smart features. The superiority of each to each other doesn’t have a significant impact on the picture quality produced by them.  Nevertheless, this doesn’t mean they don’t have weakness. Their limited SDR peak brightness makes them get a problem with a glare when they are used in a very bright room with a lot of light source. Additionally, since they are vulnerable to permanent burn in, particularly when they show static images for long time, they are not suitable when used for CCTV monitor or used for playing the same games over long time. Nevertheless, overall, they are great TVs for mixed usage, whether you use for watching sports, TV Shows, Movies, or HDR content.

So, which is a better choice among them? As we have discussed a lot above, the LG G1 have a unique designed where it can mount to the wall without gap. Of course, if you want to mount them on the wall, aesthetically, the LG G1 is better than the A90J. Additionally, the advantage of the LG G1 is that it has some gaming feature that can improve its gaming experience while the Sony A90J doesn’t have. Meanwhile, the advantage of the Sony A90J, it has better color gradient and comes with unique sound technology called “Acoustic Surface Audio+”. Meanwhile, talking about their price, with the same screen, the Sony A90J is sold hundreds to thousands dollar more expensive than the LG G1, depending on the screen size. Now, the decision certainly comes back to you according to your budget and own preferences.
