    LG OLED on top for me… haven’t had great luck with Samsung

  3. Mario B. on September 2, 2021 at 10:59 pm

    Now that explains the jam jars you have on your nose………

  4. flyby642 on September 2, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    I went for thr a80j cause samsung doesn’t have DV.. almost all movies and shows are now only supporting DV. I had samsung for years..

  5. RFR Mac on September 2, 2021 at 11:00 pm

    My answer to your question is yes. If it does all of that then in my mind it becomes the reference. But Samsung will have OLED next year and you’ll have to change your case use anyway.

  6. mumutwo on September 2, 2021 at 11:02 pm

    Hey, great video. I recently got a qn90a and was just curious, does yours have a very faint vertical line sort on the left where the image is slightly brighter, you cannot notice during "during normal viewing. But, if say sitting on the blue background when a source is not found I see it. I can also see it if I look hard when there is a clear sky on a game, or say the blue Disney menu when selecting the user. It’s like an led light is brighter than the rest. But I thought it was supposed to have mini led, and this is a rather long one. I don’t know whether to return it or not, it bothers me so much

  7. Hot Rod on September 2, 2021 at 11:03 pm

    What about the Sony X95J coming out? Would like you to compare that please.

  8. Yolande Direp on September 2, 2021 at 11:06 pm

    can you review Toshiba TVs too?

  9. Stuart Hunter on September 2, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    My main thing that puts me off Samsung in the lower end space (around the q60a sort of price range), is the lack of dolby vision.
    I’m in Ireland looking for a cheao gaming tv, and while the q60t or a looks great for the price, i’m hoping black friday gets me something similar but with dolby vision.

  10. HulkSmash on September 2, 2021 at 11:08 pm

    I"m thinking of getting a ..Samsung – 50" Class Q80A Series QLED 4K UHD Smart Tizen TV for me to play on my Xbox series X. Could you do a review on that ?

  11. curt k81 on September 2, 2021 at 11:10 pm

    The u8g is a monster for the price. I’d love to get a q90a but I just can’t justify the cost when for half the price I can get a tv as good as the u8g. Plus it honestly doesn’t pay to buy flagship TVs because in a couple of years it’s dated just like the budget minded TVs . That’s me though I’m sure others will buy the flagship and just roll with it for 5 plus years

  12. William Wilke on September 2, 2021 at 11:11 pm

    Always listening. Always FOMO. This year called for more patience than I had. My purchase of the Sony 75Z8H is doing everything sooooo good. Samsung was always a close consideration though. My great room is like a goldfish bowl, windows, port holes and a 19 foot ceiling. The test here is brightness of course. So far it is doing very well. The big test was an episode of Game of Thrones. Wow, it did great. More background than I thought was there. Then there was a strange experience with HBOMax. The movie premiere of "Remembrance" was a ton of light and shadows. It is film noire so color is used to suggest mood rather than accuracy. Then I put on "2001 A Space Odyssey" in 4K. Same surprise here. Wonderfully crisp picture. No return here, I’m keeping it! The box is still in the garage.

    Oh, I should say this Sony is replacing another 75 inch Sony, the XBR75X850D edge lit. It got moved to the guest room. The other guest room has a Samsung. I’ll save the FOMO for next time. Meanwhile, my wife thinks I’m nuts on the subject.

  13. beedizzl1 on September 2, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    Samsung tvs lack true color. A forest is the same shade of green thru & thru, just a lighter or darker shade from edge to edge

  14. Christian Just on September 2, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    Philips also offers Freesync Premium Pro on new OLEDs and also some LCD.

  15. DIVRequiem on September 2, 2021 at 11:15 pm

    OLEDS outperform and look better than all Samsung. No comparison

  16. Mark Kuehnel on September 2, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    I just bought a Sony 85" x85j from best buy for 2199. Did I make the right choice. I had a 92" Mitsubishi dlp. I was considering a Sony or LG. Best buy told me Sony was better but listening to all the reviews I’m not sure . I’m 58 yes old so I’m not a gamer. But I do want that 4k pop

  17. Jan Hervig on September 2, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    Thank you for video . I Hope you Will test the hisense dualcell duallayer tv later on . Best regards Jan Denmark Europe

  18. Philip Ng on September 2, 2021 at 11:16 pm

    Oled no good?

  19. XxLAUGHgas13xX on September 2, 2021 at 11:18 pm

    Have you made a review on the Xiaomi Mi TV Q1 75"?

  20. Searcher Yea on September 2, 2021 at 11:19 pm

    Can’t decide between this one or the LG C1. Most usage will be gaming and movies

  21. Blaise on September 2, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    OK, now I’m confused. Samsung QN90A or Sony X95J? 🤔

  22. marty8370 on September 2, 2021 at 11:20 pm

    Samsung are overrated piles of crap

  23. Bing Lim on September 2, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    So what is it? Samsung or Sony?

  24. Revanth on September 2, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    The QN90A has terrible dark room performance and you have it as your reference TV. LOL

  25. whiteandnerdytuba on September 2, 2021 at 11:21 pm

    As the oled cult loses its mind. I’ve still yet to find any oled worth buying

  26. Gordon Scott on September 2, 2021 at 11:22 pm

    Hi ….. PLEASE HELP! I to have the Q90R ….. but am thinking of buying the QE65QN95A … is it worth the money to change??? 🙂

  27. v cam on September 2, 2021 at 11:26 pm

    No, they don’t. They don’t offer dolby vison which is the best form of hdr, they don’t follow the curve and offers over-saturated picture which doesn’t follow the directors intent and do black crush which messes with shadow detail to suppress blooming and this also affects the hdr highlights and cause reverse blooming. The tv is very overpriced when you look at what you get for your dollar.

  28. Gustavo on September 2, 2021 at 11:28 pm

    No Dolby Vision, no good

  29. James Stegbauer on September 2, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    No Dolby Vision = No Deal….

  30. prashant sharma on September 2, 2021 at 11:29 pm

    With all due respect, when Fomo reviewed qn90a vs hisense u8g, he said that he prefers specular highlights over deep blacks and now he’s flipping from his own words. 😵‍💫

  31. David Sapir on September 2, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    A few weeks ago I picked up the 65" Samsung QN90A after BestBuy cut the price. It’s a beautiful TV that delivers a stunning picture, and its gaming features are next level.

  32. CandyRub on September 2, 2021 at 11:32 pm

    Question, Dolby Vision needs at least 4000 nits to be true, since there is no tv with that spec, isnt it this just marketing for now like hdr10 was a few years ago ?

  33. g1981c on September 2, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    forget dual cell – another chinese dead end. european regulations will not allow such inefficient design. the path forward is more dimming zones. if Apple can fit 10,000 LEDs into the new ipad with only 12" diagonal then surely Samsung can fit 100,000 individually controlled LEDs into a 65" panel if they want to. this would be much brighter and more efficient than the dual cell. the dual cell will probably run so hot you will be sweating watching it. besides, if blooming is only a major issue around subtitles and black bars that can be handled with an Artificial Intelligence algorithm, which is not hard at all. this Blooming problem can be solved without resorting to efficiency robbing dual cell.

  34. CottenEye Joe on September 2, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    is there any point in getting a 4k tv to watch youtube videos if the videos typically top out in 1080p? will i see any benefit?

  35. Jose Benedico on September 2, 2021 at 11:33 pm

    I bought Samsung Q80A for $ Brandsmart store …..Did I do a good buy or not? It’s for a bright room…
    Or what other TV do you suggest?

  36. MrBrickhouse on September 2, 2021 at 11:34 pm

    I’m gonna get the QN800A on Christmas.

  37. CandyRub on September 2, 2021 at 11:36 pm

    I think I’ll get 65" Q90A with 4 hdmi 2.1 ports.

  38. Juan Munoz on September 2, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    Hey I have a quick question I have a samsung 8k q900r 75 in and I have a samsung q90t 65 in the q90t is so much brighter then the 900r don’t know if this is normal but I remember reading some where that the 900r was brighter then the q90t anyway just wanted to know your thoughts to see if this is normal or should I get a new one connect box

  39. Niles Nelson on September 2, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    I love the Q90A too. I actually just left a comment on your other video about the $10,000 Sony 75" 8k (I forget the model name, sorry.)

    But in regards to the Hisense/Samsung comparison for next year – that’s a tough one. TCL and Hisense have been proving themselves to be legitimate competitors to the big 5.

    I’m not really a risk taker so I’d probably stick with Samsung because they’re a trusted brand. I don’t know if Hisense has the power to surpass Samsung at the end of the day but you never know. Wow, okay. I just read up on the U9 and it sounds serious. It’s really exiting to see a brand raise the bar like this. This is a tough one. I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

    Hisense Dual Cell U9DG Specs:
    ✔️2,000,000:1 Contrast Ratio
    ✔️1,000 Nits.
    ✔️VRR and Freesync ✔️Ultra Motion 120hz Native Refresh Rate
    ✔️2,00,000 Local Dimming Zones
    ✔️Near OLED Black Level
    ✔️ Quantum Dot Color
    ✔️Full Array Local Dimming
    ✔️480 Motion Rate
    ✔️ Dolby Vision/Dolby Atmos

    The only caviate I see right now is:
    ❌400 Watts
    (But I’m assuming that’s because it has TWO panels.)
    I can’t wait to see this monstrous TV in person!

  40. Michael Wyckoff on September 2, 2021 at 11:37 pm

    I still love my 2016 Samsung edge lit TV. It’s my reference TV when I set up new TV’s that I purchase. No it’s not calibration but I get a good idea of how I want my picture to look on new TV’s.

  41. SETECC pc on September 2, 2021 at 11:39 pm

    One thing you didn’t touch on. DSE and uniformity. I returned two QN90As because of this. Its a panel lottery I gave up on. You get to cherry pick your panel which we as consumers can not.
    Quality control is horrible in my opinion this year.
    Coming from LAST three generations of flagship QLEDS.

  42. Tommy Gun on September 2, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    Samsung what . I like that cheers 🍻

  43. Samarjeet Singh on September 2, 2021 at 11:44 pm

    I am confused between Samsung 85QN90A (selling with C$1300 discount) along with Q950A soundbar (~C$400 discount) OR Sony XR85X95J with HT-9A Home theater system (Coming soon). Use in priority – 1. Movies/Series, 2. Random Videos/Music, 3. PS/XBOX Games (Very Less). Please suggest which one to buy.

  44. Goenie on September 2, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    Weird… Must be a personal thing. I still have the Panasonic 60ZT60 limited. I recently viewed several TVs live and brought my own test material… The Q90R sucks balls. It’s terrible with motion handling. I can’t understand how you say this is the best. Btw, versus plasma, oled also sucks in motion handling. Only the new Sony’s are ok.

  45. smikedx on September 2, 2021 at 11:46 pm

    Waste of money enjoy throwing out money for no reason

  46. alex zander on September 2, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    Dont know which 75inch to get the sony X90J $2498.00 plus tax or the X 85J 1,998.00 plus tax ?????

  47. TheIceman on September 2, 2021 at 11:49 pm

    Hey everyone , stop the fomo, I have a irrelevant question about my own tv and upgrade potentially , would appreciate some honest chimes from everyone, I have the x900h right now 55, and I love the tv , I see the x90j is out and I’ve been wanting to downsize to the 50 inch of that one to accommodate the smaller area, is that trade off worth it ? Will I be left feeling underwhelmed ? I love the x90h beautiful panel too, is the new XR chip in Sony’s tv a better trade off or is the difference gonna be minimal in the end , this is my bedroom tv by the way , I figured if I could bump up quality and downsize at the same time I’m happy , but it is really worth the trade off even.. thank you

  48. Dddd Dddd on September 2, 2021 at 11:51 pm

    Samsung have ugly forced PWM in Game mode, so NO, i need my eyes yet… only not Samsung, video 👎

  49. flogtwo on September 2, 2021 at 11:56 pm

    I still have my Q90R 82 inch in the living room. It’s only missing eArc and Dolby Vision, but besides that, for an LCD tv, it’s amazing.

  50. Critical Thinking on September 2, 2021 at 11:57 pm

    The new Tcl 6 series with chromecast thats coming out soon has two 2.1 hdmi ports,Dobly vision,wifi 6,VRR,Mini led,qled quantum dot tech. $550 dollars less than a samsung QN90A thats has only one 2.1 hdmi NO Dobly vision,wifi 5 insted of wifi 6 for $1,550 huh!!!!
