3 Reasons For
50% higher RMS rated power Edit
The LG 49UH850 is a 40W RMS rated power TV. That's 20W higher than the Samsung UE49K5600 (20W). 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.

Thinner Edit
The LG 49UH850 is a 51.5mm thick TV. That's 3.4mm thinner than the Samsung UE49K5600 (54.9mm). 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.
