Difficulty choosing: Sony 65XE9005 or Samsung 65Q7F?

Hello all,

I've spent the past week spending a lot of time on reading reviews, comparisons and specs for all kinds of 4K TV's.

I thought I decided on the Sony 65XE9005 but I am still in doubt. The Samsung Q7F is a little bit more expensive (not by much) and offers 24ms input lag vs 34ms on the Sony. The TV will be primarily used for console gaming but I don't know if this small difference is noticeable (I read different opinions). The Samsung colors really pop off the screen with the high brightness where the Sony seems a little less extreme and more natural. Again, I don't know what's 'better' for everyday use.

My main question is: Not taking the small price difference into account, would you recommend getting a Sony 65XE9005 or a Samsung 65Q7F? And why? As mentioned before, the tv will be primarily used for console gaming and Netflix. I also don't like to use the TV in a fully sun lit room. Is there one TV plain better?

I hope some of you have advice for me since I really want to make up my mind one of these days, since there are some nice deals at the moment.

Thanks!

Yes, it's the European version. Other numbers for the same model are X900E and XE90 iirc.

Currently leaning heavily towards the Sony tv.
