Reasons For

Larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UE85HU7500 is an 85" TV. That's 6" larger than the LG 79UG880 (85"). Read more

The display diagonal of a TV is the most common measure of screen size and is the distance from the top left to the bottom right of the visible part of a TV screen excluding any frame or border. One of the most important considerations when choosing the right screen size for your TV is the typical distance from which you will be viewing the screen. A good rule of thumb is to multiply the display diagonal by 2.5 to determine the viewing distance. So a 40 inch TV is best viewed from 100 inches away, which is equivalent to 8.3 feet or 2.54m. For home cinema setups and a truly immersive experience this ratio can be reduced to 1.2. This will give a screen size that fills 40 degrees of the viewer's field of vision. So if you viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies.

34% higher subwoofer RMS power Edit
The Samsung UE85HU7500 is a 30W subwoofer RMS power TV. That's 10W higher than the LG 79UG880 (30W). Read more

This is a measure of the continuous power (RMS power) produced by a subwoofer.

70W higher RMS rated power Edit
The Samsung UE85HU7500 has an RMS rated power of 90W, however the LG 79UG880 is only a 20W RMS rated power TV (70W 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.

Four loudspeakers Edit
The Samsung UE85HU7500 is a four loudspeaker TV, whereas the LG 79UG880 only has two loudspeakers. Read more

The number of loudspeakers is the total number of speakers provided with the TV, either inside the TV casing or as external speakers.

A greater number of speakers will allow for better quality audio and different frequencies. Multiple external speakers will enable to the TV to play surround sound audio.
