3 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The LG 65EG9609 has a display diagonal of 65", but the LG 55UF8607 is only a 55" TV (10" smaller). Read more

‘Display Diagonal’ is the measure of the size of the TV screen from top-left to bottom-right corner, 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. TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies. 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.

OLED technology Edit
The LG 65EG9609 features OLED technology, whereas the LG 55UF8607 does not feature OLED technology. Read more

OLED TVs use organic material that creates light when electricity is passed through it. This means that they do not require a back light, unlike standard LED TVs.

OLED TVs have much higher contrast then LED TVs as they have no back light. They also have a fast response rate, rich colours and a wide viewing angle. They are also cheaper to run.

Thinner Edit
The LG 65EG9609 has a depth of 49.9mm. That's 1.1mm thinner than the LG 55UF8607 (49.9mm). 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.
