Reasons For

6 Reasons For
3D Edit
The LG 50LF652 is a 3D TV, however the Samsung UE55JU6445 is not 3D. Read more

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. Most 3D TVs require you to wear special 3D glasses in order to view the content in 3D, however some of the newer 3D TVs require no 3D glasses at all. Of those TVs that do require glasses, there are two main types of 3D technology: passive and active. Passive 3D uses glasses similar to those that you wear in the cinema. The glasses have polarised lenses which ensure that the correct image is displayed to each eye. The main advantage of passive 3D is that the glasses are very light and comfortable to wear, but it can result in a less bright image. Active 3D uses battery powered glasses which control active shutters in each lens. These shutters constantly open and close very quickly in sync with two different images that are being displayed by the TV. This ensures that the correct image is displayed to each eye. The main advantage of active 3D is that the image is brighter, however the glasses are heavier and more expensive.

3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

Lower annual energy consumption Edit
The LG 50LF652 is a 101kWh annual energy consumption TV. That's 17kWh lower than the Samsung UE55JU6445 (118kWh). Read more

The annual energy consumption is the total amount of energy that the TV will use over the course of a whole year, given typical usage levels.

A lower annual energy consumption means that it will cost less each year for you to run your TV.

8.7mm thinner Edit
The LG 50LF652 is a 54.5mm thick TV, whereas the Samsung UE55JU6445 is a 63.2mm thick TV (8.7mm 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.

Lighter Edit
The LG 50LF652 has a weight of 14.3kg. That's 700g lighter than the Samsung UE55JU6445 (15kg). Read more

The weight is the total weight of the TV excluding all packaging.

A lighter weight TV will be easier to move around and to mount on a wall. Some of the larger, very heavy TVs may require lightweight partition walls to be reinforced before the TV could be mounted.

£25.64 cheaper to run
The LG 50LF652 only costs £112.39 to run over five years whereas the Samsung UE55JU6445 costs £138.03 to run (23% more). Read more
Higher energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the LG 50LF652 is "A+", but the rating of the Samsung UE55JU6445 is "A+".
4 Reasons For
5" larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UE55JU6445 has a display diagonal of 55", however the LG 50LF652 is only a 50" TV (5" smaller). 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.

Four HDMI ports quantitys Edit
The number of HDMI ports quantitys on the Samsung UE55JU6445 is four, but the LG 50LF652 only has three HDMI ports quantitys. 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.

Local dimming Edit
The Samsung UE55JU6445 features local dimming, whereas the LG 50LF652 does not feature local dimming. Read more

This means that LEDs can be controlled individually (or in clusters) to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

Energy efficiency rating is higher
The Samsung UE55JU6445 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", but the LG 50LF652 has a rating of "A+".
