Reasons For

3 Reasons For
20W higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG OLED55B6 has an RMS rated power of 40W, however the Philips 55PUS6551 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.

Vastly thinner Edit
The LG OLED55B6 has a depth of 48.6mm, however the Philips 55PUS6551 is an 85mm thick TV (36.4mm 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.
