Sony takes a beating against Korean heavyweights
Of smart TVs costing 2 million won ($1,844) or less, LG offers a better picture while Samsung holds the edge in sound, according to a report in cooperation with the Fair Trade Commission.
The situation is reversed among high-end smart TVs retailing for more than 2 million won, with Samsung’s screen quality equal to LG’s while it maintained its audio edge.
The report also cited LG’s 3-D TV for its low energy consumption.
“Although smart TV has many enhanced functions compared to regular digital TVs, they come with a higher price tag,” said the agency in a release. “Hence, consumers should consider for what purpose they purchase TVs.”
If a consumer wants to watch 3-D videos or surf the Internet, it may be worthwhile to choose a smart TV, the agency said.
