Better user reviews

5 Reasons For
A lot higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG 55UF950 has an RMS rated power of 40W, but the LG 55UF850 and the Samsung UE55JU7000 are both only 20W RMS rated power TVs (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.

Four loudspeakers Edit
The LG 55UF950 has four loudspeakers, however the Samsung UE55JU7000 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.

19.8mm thinner Edit
LG 55UF950 is 47.6mm thick, but the LG 55UF850 is a 50.8mm thick TV (3.2mm thicker) and the Samsung UE55JU7000 is a 67.4mm thick TV (19.8mm 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.

Available from 6 shops
A greater number of stores increases the chances of this TV remaining in stock and also increases the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
Two more awards
The LG 55UF950 has 5 awards, whereas the Samsung UE55JU7000 has 3 awards.
2 Reasons For
