Obviously, the only fair way to test this is with a totally ‘blind’ test, where our judges don’t even know why we’re doing a test or what the differences between these flagship Smart TVs are.
LG OLED C9 vs Samsung QLED Q950R, both 65 inch screens, with our judges sitting the ideal 50 degrees away from the width of each TV.
So many people have asked about having 8K content on the 8K screen it's clear I didn't explain it very well in the video, so just to confirm.... we played a mixture of native 4K content to both screens from Netflix and some native 8K content to the 8K screen from downloaded 8K and 12K originals. These were coded as H.265 and VP90 files and copied on to two USB sticks for playing to both screens simultaneously. Half of the blind test (from 9:15 onwards) was all native 8K content on the 8K and simultaneous native 4K on the 4K.
