5 Reasons For
600Hz faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Samsung UE55JU6000 has a motion interpolation frequency of 800Hz, but the Philips 55PUH6400 is only a 700Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (100Hz slower) and the Sony KD-55X8005 is only a 200Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (600Hz slower). Read more

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source. Motion interpolation technology can sometimes create some unwanted side effects such glitches when the technology suddenly activates during an action scene. Most modern TVs will have an option to switch off the motion interpolation if it is not desired.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

Local dimming Edit
The Samsung UE55JU6000 features local dimming, but the Philips 55PUH6400 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.

Thinner Edit
Samsung UE55JU6000 is 50.1mm thick. That's 28.9mm thinner than the Philips 55PUH6400 (). Read more
