Anyone who was raised in Kenya in the 90s knows the superiority associated with Sony TVs. During those days Sony TVs were the preserve of the rich with the rest of us either watching Greatwall TVs or going to our neighbors to watch TV.
Truth be told Sony TVs are far more superior than LG and Samsung TVs. Sony flat screen TVs have a better display and audio quality. In addition they have a longer lifespan to any other TV. Currently, Sony also uses propriety TV technology that gives its TVs better clarity, reduces blur in motion pictures and gives it a greater color balance. The Sony Bravia, which is a 2005 model, is still one of the best-selling Sony TV to date.
In terms of price however, Sony TVs are very expensive. This may be the reason why they are not flying off the shelves’ in Kenyan TV shops. For anyone who wants to buy a good TV that they can use for years without any issues, then I would recommend buying a Sony flat screen TV

No one can correctly rank the 3 TV brands using a collective ranking system. For middle range TV models, in terms of shelf life and longevity, Sony comes top. For great picture quality, Samsung comes top. In terms of pricing among the 3, LG is more pocket friendly of the 3.
The entry of LG OLED turns tables round as it has the best picture quality. However, this will not last long as Samsung unveils its new OLED TV. In my opinion, both Samsung, Sony and LG are great TVs and it all comes down to personal preference.
