LG has been sitting pretty on top of our TV charts for yonks now - its decision to go OLED proved to be a mighty successful one. But LG’s dominence is finally over, as Sony blasts away the competition with its very first attempt at an OLED telly. With an outstanding picture and design, packaged with a clever speaker system that vibrates the whole screen, the A1 comes out on top in almost every single category. This is the TV to beat in 2017.
