Energy efficiency rating is higher
The LG 55UH600 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", but the LG 55UH850 has a rating of "A+".
6 Reasons For
Significantly bigger picture mastering index (PMI) Edit
The LG 55UH850 has a picture mastering index (PMI) of 2,700, whereas the LG 55UH600 is only a 1,000 TV (1,700 smaller).
20W higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG 55UH850 has an RMS rated power of 40W, but the LG 55UH600 is only a 20W RMS rated power TV (20W lower). Read more

RMS rated power stands for Root Mean Square rated power and it is typically used to measure the power output of the audio element of the TV.

A higher RMS rated power means that the audio system on the TV is more powerful and will be able to play the audio at higher volumes. A higher RMS power may also result in better quality audio at normal volume levels.

Two USB 2.0 ports Edit
The LG 55UH850 is a two USB 2.0 port TV, whereas the LG 55UH600 only has one USB 2.0 port. Read more

USB ports are useful for displaying on your TV photos / videos or playing music that is stored on USB key drives. The USB port can also be used for charging devices from your TV (as long as it's switched on), and for installing software updates on the TV.

More USB ports will allow you to connect more USB devices to the TV simultaneously without needing to continuous plug in and unplug cables.

One more HDMI port Edit
The LG 55UH850 has three HDMI ports, however the LG 55UH600 only has two HDMI ports. Read more

The HDMI ports quantity is the number of ports that the TV has that will accept a HDMI cable. HDMI is the most common type of cable used to connect modern TVs, DVD players, games consoles etc.

A greater number of HDMI ports will allow you to permanently connect more devices to the TV and will reduce the need to reach around the back of the TV to unplug and plug in cables when switching between devices.

Thinner Edit
LG 55UH850 is 51.5mm thick, but the LG 55UH600 is a 56.7mm thick TV (5.2mm thicker). Read more

The depth of the TV is the thickness of the TV measured from the back of the TV to the front of the TV. Curved TVs will have quite a big depth as this dimension is measured from the back of the centre of the screen to the front of the edges of the screen.

A thinner TV has the advantage of appearing more elegant and will also mean that the TV will not stick out as much when mounted on a wall.

Better energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the LG 55UH850 is "A+", however the rating of the LG 55UH600 is "A+".
