Reasons For

3 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The LG 49UH850 is a 49" TV. That's 1" larger than the Samsung UE48JU6050 (48"). 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.

Built-in subwoofer Edit
The LG 49UH850 has a built-in subwoofer, but the Samsung UE48JU6050 does not.
20W higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG 49UH850 has an RMS rated power of 40W, whereas the Samsung UE48JU6050 is only a 20W RMS rated power TV (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.

4 Reasons For
Hugely faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The Samsung UE48JU6050 has a motion interpolation frequency of 800Hz, but the LG 49UH850 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.

3% thinner Edit
Samsung UE48JU6050 is 50.2mm thick. That's 1.3mm thinner than the LG 49UH850 (50.2mm). 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.

24% cheaper to run
Over five years the Samsung UE48JU6050 is £33.26 cheaper to run than the LG 49UH850. Read more
Energy efficiency rating is better
The Samsung UE48JU6050 has an energy efficiency rating of "A+", however the LG 49UH850 has a rating of "A".

Reasons Against
