What Should You Buy: Sony XBR65X850F vs LG 65UK6300PUE

Sony XBR65X850F vs LG 65UK6300PUE

The present review is aimed to compare two high-quality 4K Ultra HD TVs — Sony XBR65X850F vs LG 65UK6300PUE that are meant to satisfy the needs of cinema lovers. They both were produced in 2018 but have a significant difference in price: the Sony XBR65X850F is offered for around $1200, while the model from LG is almost half cheaper, costing about $700.

The Sony model (X850F series) offers significant improvement of a non-HDR content, using X1 processor. The LG 65UK6300PUE (UK630 series), in its turn, uses Mapping technology to deliver scene-by-scene optimization.

Picture

The Sony XBR65X850F has a wider range of advanced technologies to upgrade the quality of reproduced content than the LG 65UK6300PUE does, so it naturally shows more progressive picture quality. For example, the high-motion scenes are shown very smooth thanks to Motionflow XR, especially in comparison with its competitor which doesn’t possess such technology. However, it’s worth noting that the LG 65UK6300PUE reproduces very pleasant and lively colors. I really enjoyed looking at the nature scenes on this TV’s display.

Features & performance

Despite the great price difference, these units have very similar 20W stereo speakers of medium quality. None of them features any of Dolby sound technologies but use a DTS decoder to create quite decent cinematic sound.

Both TVs give access to most of the popular streaming apps like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Video, etc. However, the model from LG doesn’t have HBO on this list.

After the LG 65UK6300PUE vs Sony XBR65X850F connectivity sources comparison, I can conclude that both units are quite multifunctional in this regard. With a couple of exceptions (the Sony model doesn’t feature composite video input, and both TVs doesn’t have VGA port), these models offer a large variety of both wired and wireless connectivity options.

Design & build quality

The TVs look quite similar: they both are slim, have 65 inches of screen size and stay on identical Y-shaped stands which differ only by color (the XBR65X850F is white and the 65UK6300PUE is black). The Sony model has a subtle frame around the display versus the frame of the LG model, which is quite massive. Both models also feature VESA mount, but the Sony XBR65X850F is more than 10 lbs heavier than the LG 65UK6300PUE so requires more caution for wall mounting.

Sony XBR65X850F pros & cons

Pros

  • Is compatible with Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa, and Google Home.
  • The initial software setup takes very little time.

Cons

  • It’s not MHL-compatible.
