Reasons For

4 Reasons For
Smart TV Edit
The LG 32LF632 supports Smart TV, but the Panasonic TX-48AX630 does not support Smart TV.
4.7mm thinner Edit
The LG 32LF632 is a 55.3mm thick TV, whereas the Panasonic TX-48AX630 is a 60mm thick TV (4.7mm 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.

£82.72 cheaper to run
The LG 32LF632 only costs £62.72 to run over five years whereas the Panasonic TX-48AX630 costs £145.44 to run (132% more). Read more
Higher energy efficiency rating
The energy efficiency rating of the LG 32LF632 is "A", but the rating of the Panasonic TX-48AX630 is "A".
3 Reasons For
A lot larger display diagonal Edit
The Panasonic TX-48AX630 has a display diagonal of 48", whereas the LG 32LF632 is only a 32" TV (16" 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.

3D Edit
The Panasonic TX-48AX630 is 3D, whereas the LG 32LF632 is not. Read more

‘3D’ describes whether the TV can display 3D movies and programmes. Requires compatible 3D glasses to properly function.

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

Energy efficiency rating is better
The Panasonic TX-48AX630 has an energy efficiency rating of "A", however the LG 32LF632 has a rating of "A".
