Difference between Samsung LED and Sony Bravia

Two of the leading names in the category of electronics, Sony and Samsung present you the best aesthetics, quality and features that no other company can match up to. The companies are the best in their respective fields, have nearly taken over every electronics technique, and put themselves forward by giving their own touch to it. The Samsung LED and Sony Bravia have been presented to put forward in the competition and see whom the best is after all.

Samsung LED
Sony Bravia

Appeal Your Eyes

It is justified that the quality is there when it comes to Sony and Samsung and that is exactly what you get when it comes to their LCD flat screens. Sony Bravia comes in a darker tone of black whereas the Samsung LED is presented in the crystal black design to give a chic look to their aesthetic quality. Even the weight of the TV's is almost the same: Bravia weighing almost 42 lbs (approximately 19 kg) whereas LED weighing around 37 lbs (approximately 17 kg). Both the televisions come with the option of either being mounts on a wall or being put on a stand.

Features of Bravia & LED

Both the company names promise to give the best to their capabilities and therefore different features of the televisions do set them apart. Bravia comes equipped with a menu that has the options of languages, the frame of the picture with an option of even having a digital picture as your display. Other features, that are also seen in LED include, noise reduction, tone adjustment, color variation, gamma controls, auto volume and power off, sleep timer, auto channel search and Teletext. When it comes to consuming power, Bravia takes the lead as its run time is of 170W and above whereas LED takes up 240W. The difference is present even when it is in a standby mode.

Quality or Just the Presentation?

The appearance is not the only factor that makes you decide the TV that you want to buy. The quality of the TV is the utmost important factor to be kept in mind. The battle continues between Sony and Samsung and they make it hard for the public to decide the winner when it comes to the picture quality.

Similarities and Differences

In the race of wanting the maximum customers by giving in their maximum efforts, Sony Bravia and Samsung LED serve the public with exactly what they want. They put forward their quality and the charges are such that they make sure that you feel that the product is worth your money. However, Sony Bravia certainly takes the lead due to the following reasons:

  • Sony gives twice the features that Samsung does and consumes less power than Samsung does which is an extra plus point to their list of customer priorities.
  • Sony Bravia is a whole package deal as it not only has the perfect aesthetics, but also is advantageous to any type of a buy as it thrives to serve for perfection in every sense whether it is features, capability, power consummation etc.

Discuss It: comments 99

LED Tv ( LCD display use LED as back-light ) is New LCD Display Technology !

They can produce a very bright image with greater contrast and deeper blacks compared to LCD TVs.

With Edge-LED lighting they can be extremely slim. Current models on the market are just over 1 inch thick.

They consume much less power. About 40% less compared to an LCD TV of a similar size.

They can offer a wider colour gamut, especially when RGB-LED backlighting is used

LCD TV Quality is close to Plasma Display.

Prices for LED TV is 3 to 4 X high compare to same size LCD TV.

Sony W Series is LCD TV . it cant compare to LED tv . and is not fair to compare.

Samsung LED TV of course is High Quality TV !

Sony Zx and X series is LED TV., it always same class / quality compare to Samsung LED TV.

Sony W67 also is LED (LCD) TV

Sony and Samsung are launching new models.

Samsung already released 3D LED TV, where as Sony partnered with Google to launch Google TV in Q3 - Q4

Samsung B series(UN55B7000,UN55B8000, UN55B9000 etc.) are LED TV's with out 3D. Samsung C series (UN55C7000, UN55C8000, UN55C9000 etc.) are LED TV's with 3D technology.

Bla shut the door no way sony is better than that old man samsung

Samsung is anyways more trustworthy then sony as a brand and has a longer overall life. In a sony tv the quality of the picture degrades with time.

Which factors are you considering by saying "Samsung is anyways more trustworthy then Sony"?

Sony has been a pioneer in making Televisions and creating new technologies.

Regarding trust, JAPANESE products have always been ahead of any other country products in reliability. Like the name goes TOYOTA in the automobile industry, Sony goes in the television industry.

You may find brilliant and attractive features in a Mercedes, but all stand second to Toyota when Reliability comes to count Globally.

haha actually sony developed first led tv, just like they developed and released the first OLED tv back in 2007 haha

New models of SONY bravia is great and very slim i bought yesterday great for price and quality...SAMSUNG THE CHEAP PLASTIC...

You are wrong ! Sony does not make Bravia products of Aluminium ! Even Bravia are made of Plastics. Samsung innovated the Slim Design & Sony Copied it & Samung invented LED Technology first.Samsung too delivers Quality.

I really, really want to buy the new Samsung D8000, however after reading online reviews for the past three hours I can't get past the consistent and fundamentally worrying reports that the Samsung D8000 suffers from poor screen uniformity, brightness variation and banding.

Weather this is a clever "bad PR" from SONY and/or the reviews from CNET, Review-tvs have a particular bias... I really liked the demo video of the D8000 from CES 2011... and I'd really wish that all these bad reports were not true as the Samsung TV's aesthetically look brilliant !!

If there is "someone" out there that can dispel or disprove all these reviews or if Samsung has "a fix" for this issue.... PLEASE post this info soon as I'll be researching till mid-December but at this stage it looks like I'll be going with the Bravia (KDL-55HX925)

I own a Samsung 46 LED 6050. Husband and I have been unhappy with the image quality. I have played countlessly with the image options, and have not been able to improve it. Was at Costco today (where I bought this tv from) and they had my model right beside the Sony Bravia EX62. The Samsung displayed the same issues I'm having with my tv (so I know I didn't get a bad unit). The image is blurry, and the highlights bleed. The Sony looked so much clearer. The image was darker, and I must admit that Samsung had better brightness and colours.... but I didn't tweak the Sony, so maybe that is adjustable. I am happy with other aspects of the Samsung... but I don't think I can get past the fact that the picture looks worse than my old CRT model that I bought this tv to replace. :(

If Sony was so good then why are Sony tvs not selling? I always go to my local bestbuy store and as soon as you go to the tv section, all you see is mostly Samsung tvs. Why is that? Cause Samsung tvs sell more because they have the most beautiful HD picture of any tvs. Specially the 8000 series. Sony sucks and that's why they are broke!

I own a 40" Sony Bravia ex720 3d model...everything is awesome...i have tested all brands before choosing this one. Samsung is no match for it. 3D quality is twice better than LG cinema 3d. The only drawback is that Sony does not support playback of MKV files. Apart from that everything is fine. I do watch MKV files by connecting my laptop via HDMI.

Can anyone talk about SAMSUNG ES 46 8000 model .Because i want to buy a 3D LED...

Sony LED panels are currently made by Samsung. Sony is still working on a much better LED technology.. to be marketed as "Crystal LED". However may not launch this year. Overall image processing considering color,darkness and brightness together; I think is better handled by Sony. EX650 series of Sony has a 178 degree viewing angle (same as samsung) and the X-reality chip ..which is better compared to Bravia 3 engine.Sound at 10wx2 dolby pulse is same as samsung..however for the price of 40 inch ex650 of sony you can get a 42inch ex650 equivalant in samsung. samsung models also have better compatabilty with usb file formats. The sony ex650 is supposed to handle file format better than previous models.

I have recently bought a Sony Bravia KDL-46HS750. Its 46" LED 3D model.

But I am really disappointed that sony doesn't play many movies formats including .mkv format. You know, now a days, most of HD movies including 3D movies are coming in .mkv format. I had to bought Sony Playstation 3 so that i may be able to play .mkv files on my LED but the same issue. It doesn't play this format as well.....This is I think a Mega Drawback of sony, as all other LED manufacturers including Samsung are offering their products which play all formats....Sony must think over this issue, otherwise it will lose a Huge Customer Bank.

Can any body guide me how can i be able to play all movie formats especially .mkv on my sony bravia or PS3???? I am really much worried as I have spent a lot on these. (2000$ appx)

SONY is the best! If you have money and you want quality, I say you go for SONY.. For me as I read forums and articles, SONY is still number 1.

Samjunk and it's services are a joke. Two Samjunk TV's failed within two weeks of each other, less than five months old. That should tell you something, about there quality. The warranty repair is even worse, but a totally incompetent service staff and support is as I said a joke. I had to send one back twice because of there total service center incompetence.

They do want you pay to ship it to them, better keep the box.

but when you watch on sony display you will have a satisfied and really reality display,also you'll never have a painful on your eye. because: Samsung have over saturated display and very great colors but less naturally like Sony,

Sony's product have the balance in all side, i'd said like this cause im one of the Samsung products sealer,but im also have Sony's products in my market,I really like Sony.

I would have to say that both companies have ghost in the closet. Samsung third party repair centers and support is a joke, been there and done it. Two TV's had the same problem, no power within two weeks of each other. I sent in for repair, then they returned it not even properly reassembled, and repaired had to return it again. I was then offered a refurbished TV, with a 90 day warranty. My TV had 9 months left on the warranty. The second was repaired and returned. This is a quality control issue, on both build and repair. You have to remember Samsung was a no name company, low rate electronics company, not to many years ago.

Sony cannot get repair parts, if needed for models years even as recent as 2011 and 2012. If they build it, they should also make sure they have a certain level of stock to support repairs. The quality of the X-reality is better than the BE3. Than add the X-reality pro, and it doubles. All inputs even low bitrate internet content is enhanced here. The problem is if you have a problem and it is under warranty you will most likely be offered a newer model.

I have been using sony product for 7 years , still good condition and looks new
