Sony A8 series (2019) vs LG SM8600
The Sony A8 55" (2019) hasn't managed to earn a top spot in any roundups from sources that conduct trustworthy hands-on testing. Nevertheless, reviewers from sites, such as Techradar, Rtings, and PCmag all gave it a spot on their list.
As for the LG SM8600 75" - Rtings, a source that conducts reliable hands-on testing, has featured it in its LG SM8600 TV Review roundup. However, it didn't make it to any of the top spots.
When we thoroughly analyzed their review scores, we learned that all of the sources that tested both TVs, including Rtings, preferred the Sony A8 55" (2019) over the LG SM8600 75".
We also took a look at which sources they managed to impress the most. The Sony A8 55" (2019) was liked best by Techradar, which gave it a score of 9, while the LG SM8600 75" got its highest, 9.3, score from techaeris.com.
Lastly, we averaged out all of the reviews scores that we could find on these two products and compared them to other TVs on the market. We learned that both of them performed far better than most of their competitors - the overall review average earned by TVs being 7.7 out of 10, whereas the Sony A8 55" (2019) and LG SM8600 75" managed averages of 8.4 and 8.2 points, respectively.
Due to the difference in their prices, however, it's important to keep in mind that a direct Sony A8 55" (2019) vs. LG SM8600 75" comparison might not be entirely fair - some sources don't take value for money into account when assigning their scores and therefore have a tendency to rate more premium products better.
