3 Reasons For
60Hz Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency
The LG 55SJ8000 has a motion interpolation frequency of 120, however the Sony XBR55X800E is only a 60Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (60Hz slower).

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

Wi-Fi Direct
The LG 55SJ8000 supports Wi-Fi Direct, however the Sony XBR55X800E does not support this feature.

Wi-Fi Direct is a system to allow your TV to connect directly to other device without requiring a wireless router as a go-between.

Wi-Fi Direct is helpful on a TV because it allows a TV to connect to another device (such as a computer or phone) directly, meaning there is far less setup required - the devices just need to be 'paired' (normally at a press of a button) and the y can transfer data between each other. This is extremely useful for streaming media onto your TV from a computer or phone.
