I have both LG and Samsung. Both equally good. If you use the smart function often, LG interface seem easier to use.

Just bought the 65Q95T QLED. Watching in the Living room with some sunlight, so prefer something brighter and less reflective. Hope I made the right choice.

Something that won me is also the no gap wall mount. LG OLED will look good on desktop stand, but wall mount will have bigger gap.

My Samsung D series TV from 2011 was still working normally in end-2019, when I changed to Samsung RU series last November.

LG OLED TV - my aunt's one from 2017 spoilt just after 3 years warranty expired.

Both my TV still works fine. Durability is hard to say for electronics devices.
Anyway, if you buy low-mid range product. I believe the panel is not LG or Samsung original.
Eg, for by LG TV, I opened it up before and google the model of panel. Is some LG OEM factory in China. It was one of the 2nd or top model 6 years back.

Important is you like the design and satisfy with the picture quality.

If your TV is at bright light area especially sunlight. QLED is the way to go. Q95T is a very nice TV. You will enjoy it.
