The y is a much better TV in almost every aspect. If you ever want Dolby Vision, the choice is made for you- no DV on Samsungs.

Samsung Q70T 85", if the HT's dark and requires wide angle viewing.

Sony X900H 85", if the HT has variable lighting and narrower viewing is okay. Also, if HDMI 2.1 and Dolby Vision are desired.

Good luck, have fun, stay safe.

Thank you for the info. MY HT is dark, but doesn't require wide angle viewing. I don't think I need HDMI 2.1 because It connecting to my Receiver (Pioneer Elite VSX-53) that doesn't have 2.1. and I will worry about that on the next upgrade

Is Dolby Vision better than HDR10+?

I was in the store and the Sony looked to have a brighter screen. Is this because the showroom has light and I would be better off with the Samsung in a dark HT? As you can see I am a novice and finally finishing a home theater for the 1st time. Thanks.

The Samsung Q70T does not have any local dimming, so the FALD Sony X900H is the better choice for a home theater.

Sony X900H will have the brighter screen.

Correction, Samsung Q70T does not have Ultra-Wide Angle viewing.

HDR10+ is not as prominent as HDR10 and Dolby Vision. Not an issue.

FYI Samsung Q70T review test is linked. A Sony X900H review test is not available.

You're welcome. Good luck.

Correct me if i'm wrong, bu if the Q70t doesn't have ultra wide viewing angle, and no local dimming. It has awesome contrast ratio and little to no blooming??

Many of the test reviews say it’s basically the Q60 from previous years. Good but not special. Seems that this TV exists really because it fits a price-point rather than a need. Unless these get super-discounted, they won’t move quickly.

If you can swing the cost of the Q80T it would be a big upgrade over the 70T.
If that isn't an option i would choose the Sony.
