Of course they are not twice as good. But they have been rated slightly better (especially for upscaling and motion handling) than the LG's (pending comparisons of the 2020 offerings).
Every year, the Sony's have been more expensive than the LG's. Interestingly, the price difference tends to be smaller when they first come out. But over the course of the year, the LG's drop in price, whereas the Sony's don't, making the price difference much larger.
I bought the A9G when it came out, so the difference between that and the LG C9 was relatively small. I don't use it for gaming at all. And most of my watching is SDR (1080i and 720p TV broadcasts, 1080p BluRay discs, some 480i DVDs), so the upscaling was important to me. If you watch mainly 4k, and if you do a significant amount of gaming, then you should strongly consider LG (you really can't go wrong with either brand).
At the end of the day, nobody can tell you which is best for you. For some, value is most important, and for others, they want the "best" no matter the cost. Only you can decide.
