21 Reasons For for Choosing the LG OLED55B8SLC

OLED / QLED Technology

The LG OLED55B8SLC features OLED / QLED technology, and so do the LG OLED65C8 and the Samsung QE49Q6FN, however the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not. More ...

OLED and QLED TVs use organic material that creates light when electricity is passed through it. This means that they do not require a back light, unlike standard LED TVs.

OLED and QLED TVs have much higher contrast than LED TVs as they have no back light. They also have a fast response rate, rich colours and a wide viewing angle. They are also cheaper to run.

214.1mm Thinner

LG OLED55B8SLC is 46.9mm thick (as does the LG OLED65C8), but the Samsung QE49Q6FN is a 54.9mm thick TV (8mm thicker), the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 is a 261mm thick TV (214.1mm thicker) and the Toshiba 49U5863DB is a 100mm thick TV (53.1mm thicker). More ...

The thickness of a 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.

Built-in Subwoofer

The LG OLED55B8SLC has a built-in subwoofer, and so do the LG OLED65C8 and the Samsung QE49Q6FN, however the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not. More ...

A subwoofer is a specialised bass speaker for your TV, designed to provide punchy and powerful low notes for music and movies. Alternatively, an underground dog.

A built-in subwoofer will give your TV's sound system a serious boost on the low end bass notes. This will be best experienced in the bangs, thumps and explosions of movies, or in bass-heavy music.

A Lot Higher RMS Rated Power

The LG OLED55B8SLC has an RMS rated power of 40W (as do the LG OLED65C8 and the Samsung QE49Q6FN), but the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Toshiba 49U5863DB are both only 20W RMS rated power TVs (20W lower). 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.

Timeshift

The LG OLED55B8SLC supports timeshift (as do the LG OLED65C8 and the Samsung QE49Q6FN), but the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not support this feature. More ...

'Timeshifting' on a TV is the ability to record movies and programs to be viewed or listened to after the live broadcast.

TVs with timeshifting abilities mean that you don't have to watch programs when they are first broadcast - you can record them and watch them at your leisure.

Screen Mirroring

The LG OLED55B8SLC supports screen mirroring (as do the Samsung QE49Q6FN and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100), but the LG OLED65C8 and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not support this feature. More ...

Screen Mirroring on a TV is a system that allows you to view the screen from a computer or mobile phone on your TV.

Screen mirroring on a TV is helpful because it allows you to easily display media and info running on a phone or laptop to a big screen for easy viewing with a minimum of effort.

One More USB Port

The LG OLED55B8SLC is a three USB port TV (as does the Samsung QE49Q6FN), whereas the Toshiba 49U5863DB only has two USB ports. More ...

We do not know the number of USB ports on the LG OLED65C8. It is possible that it does not have any USB ports.

'USB Port' is a measure of the amount of available USB ports on the TV.

More USB ports mean that more peripherals and devices can be plugged into the TV at once.

Local Dimming

The LG OLED55B8SLC features local dimming (as do the LG OLED65C8, the Samsung QE49Q6FN and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100), but the Toshiba 49U5863DB does not feature this benefit. More ...

'Local Dimming' on a TV is a function that dims certain sections of the backlight to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

Local dimming can be used to make blacks on the screen appear darker and richer by removing the backlight behind them.

USB Recording

The LG OLED55B8SLC features USB recording (as do the Samsung QE49Q6FN, the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Toshiba 49U5863DB), however the LG OLED65C8 does not feature this benefit. More ...

A USB recording function on a TV allows you to record live TV onto a USB device.

Recording live TV onto a USB device is a good way to save films and TV programs for later viewing.

Noise Reduction

The LG OLED55B8SLC supports noise reduction, and so do the LG OLED65C8 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100, however the Samsung QE49Q6FN and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not. More ...

Noise reduction helps reduce intrusive audio and visual noise for a clearer and better viewing experience.

Bluetooth

The LG OLED55B8SLC supports Bluetooth (as do the LG OLED65C8, the Samsung QE49Q6FN and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100), but the Toshiba 49U5863DB does not support this feature. More ...

A Bluetooth connection on your TV means it can send and receive data from Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as headphones, mobile phones or remotes.

A Bluetooth connection on your phone allows you to use many newer wireless devices with your TV, such as wireless headphones and controlling your TV using your phone.

Miracast

The LG OLED55B8SLC supports Miracast (as do the LG OLED65C8 and the Toshiba 49U5863DB), but the Samsung QE49Q6FN and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 do not support this feature. More ...

Miracast is a peer-to-peer wireless screencasting standard formed via Wi-Fi Direct connections in a manner similar to Bluetooth.

TVs with Miracast can use it to stream media from computers and mobile phones at very high quality without the need to attach cables first, making the whole process far easier.

Picture-in-Picture

The LG OLED55B8SLC supports Picture-in-Picture, and so do the LG OLED65C8 and the Samsung QE49Q6FN, however the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not. More ...

Picture-in-Picture is a special mode for a TV that allows two programs to be shown at the same time, one in a smaller screen overlaid on top of the first.

Picture-in-Picture on a TV is very helpful for browsing the net or taking Skype calls while still watching a movie or TV programme on the main screen.

Voice Control

The LG OLED55B8SLC features voice control, and so do the LG OLED65C8 and the Samsung QE49Q6FN, whereas the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not. More ...

Voice Control on a TV is a system that allows users to control various functions of their TV (volume, channels, etc) purely with voice commands, rather than having to use the remote.

Voice controls mean that you can control the TV from your couch without having to find a remote or move to manually change the channel or adjust the settings, leading to a more streamlined experience.

Desktop Stand Included

The LG OLED55B8SLC has a desktop stand included, and so do the LG OLED65C8 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100, however the Samsung QE49Q6FN and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not. More ...

Whether the TV has a desktop stand included with the purchase.

A desktop stand allows you to mount the TV on a desk or table for easy viewing. Without one, you'll have to either mount the TV on a wall or buy a stand at additional expense.

Better Kagoo Score

The LG OLED55B8SLC has received a Kagoo Score of 90, however the LG OLED65C8 scored 89, the Samsung QE49Q6FN scored 88, the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 scored 89 and the Toshiba 49U5863DB scored 87.

More Popular

The LG OLED55B8SLC is a more popular choice amongst buyers.

15 More Awards

The LG OLED55B8SLC has received 15 awards, whereas the LG OLED65C8 has received 13 awards, the Samsung QE49Q6FN has received 1 award, the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 has received no awards and the Toshiba 49U5863DB has received no awards.

Lydogbillede.dk: LG OLED55B8SLC = 100% vs LG OLED65C8 = 83%

Ljudochbild.se: LG OLED55B8SLC = 100% vs LG OLED65C8 = 83%

15 Reasons Against for Choosing the LG OLED55B8SLC

10" Smaller Display Diagonal

The LG OLED55B8SLC is a 55" TV. That's 10" smaller than the LG OLED65C8 (65"), 6" larger than the Samsung QE49Q6FN and the Toshiba 49U5863DB (49") and 0.1" smaller than the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 (55.1"). 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 are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

£470 More Expensive

The LG OLED55B8SLC is more expensive than the Samsung QE49Q6FN by £81, more expensive than the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 by £336 and more expensive than the Toshiba 49U5863DB by £470.

Less Retailers

Only 18 shops sells the LG OLED55B8SLC, whereas 19 retailers sell the LG OLED65C8 and 26 stores sell the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100. More ...

Smaller numbers of stores reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this TV and also reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock.
Over One Year Older

The LG OLED55B8SLC is older than the LG OLED65C8 by 16 months, older than the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 by one year and older than the Toshiba 49U5863DB by nine months. The LG OLED55B8SLC is the same age as the Samsung QE49Q6FN.

More Expensive to Run Over Five Years by 51%

Over five years the LG OLED55B8SLC costs £150 to run which is £22 more than the Samsung QE49Q6FN and £51 more than the Toshiba 49U5863DB. Show assumptions.

Energy Efficiency Rating is Lower

The LG OLED55B8SLC has a European Union Energy Efficiency Rating of "A", however the LG OLED65C8 has a rating of "A", the Samsung QE49Q6FN has a rating of "B", the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 has a rating of "A" and the Toshiba 49U5863DB has a rating of "A+".

Lower Expert Review Score

The LG OLED55B8SLC's average expert rating is 92%, however the Samsung QE49Q6FN's is 100% (based on 1 review).

Less Customers Recommend it

Only 75.1% of 966 customers recommend the LG OLED55B8SLC, whereas 88% of 657 customers recommend the LG OLED65C8 and 92.1% of 177 customers recommend the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100.

Worse Brand

19 Reasons For for Choosing the LG OLED65C8

20% Larger Display Diagonal

The LG OLED65C8 is a 65" TV. That's 9.9" larger than the LG OLED55B8SLC and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 (55.1") and 16" larger than the Samsung QE49Q6FN and the Toshiba 49U5863DB (49"). 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 are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

OLED / QLED Technology

The LG OLED65C8 features OLED / QLED technology, and so do the LG OLED55B8SLC and the Samsung QE49Q6FN, but the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not. More ...

OLED and QLED TVs use organic material that creates light when electricity is passed through it. This means that they do not require a back light, unlike standard LED TVs.

OLED and QLED TVs have much higher contrast than LED TVs as they have no back light. They also have a fast response rate, rich colours and a wide viewing angle. They are also cheaper to run.

Significantly Thinner

The LG OLED65C8 is a 46.9mm thick TV (as does the LG OLED55B8SLC), whereas the Samsung QE49Q6FN is a 54.9mm thick TV (8mm thicker), the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 is a 261mm thick TV (214.1mm thicker) and the Toshiba 49U5863DB is a 100mm thick TV (53.1mm thicker). More ...

The thickness of a 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.

Built-in Subwoofer

The LG OLED65C8 has a built-in subwoofer, and so do the LG OLED55B8SLC and the Samsung QE49Q6FN, but the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not. More ...

A subwoofer is a specialised bass speaker for your TV, designed to provide punchy and powerful low notes for music and movies. Alternatively, an underground dog.

A built-in subwoofer will give your TV's sound system a serious boost on the low end bass notes. This will be best experienced in the bangs, thumps and explosions of movies, or in bass-heavy music.

20W Higher RMS Rated Power

The LG OLED65C8 has an RMS rated power of 40W (as do the LG OLED55B8SLC and the Samsung QE49Q6FN), whereas the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Toshiba 49U5863DB are both only 20W RMS rated power TVs (20W lower). 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.

Timeshift

The LG OLED65C8 supports timeshift (as do the LG OLED55B8SLC and the Samsung QE49Q6FN), whereas the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not support this feature. More ...

'Timeshifting' on a TV is the ability to record movies and programs to be viewed or listened to after the live broadcast.

TVs with timeshifting abilities mean that you don't have to watch programs when they are first broadcast - you can record them and watch them at your leisure.

Local Dimming

The LG OLED65C8 features local dimming (as do the LG OLED55B8SLC, the Samsung QE49Q6FN and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100), whereas the Toshiba 49U5863DB does not feature this benefit. More ...

'Local Dimming' on a TV is a function that dims certain sections of the backlight to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

Local dimming can be used to make blacks on the screen appear darker and richer by removing the backlight behind them.

Noise Reduction

The LG OLED65C8 supports noise reduction, and so do the LG OLED55B8SLC and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100, but the Samsung QE49Q6FN and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not. More ...

Noise reduction helps reduce intrusive audio and visual noise for a clearer and better viewing experience.

Bluetooth

The LG OLED65C8 supports Bluetooth (as do the LG OLED55B8SLC, the Samsung QE49Q6FN and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100), whereas the Toshiba 49U5863DB does not support this feature. More ...

A Bluetooth connection on your TV means it can send and receive data from Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as headphones, mobile phones or remotes.

A Bluetooth connection on your phone allows you to use many newer wireless devices with your TV, such as wireless headphones and controlling your TV using your phone.

Miracast

The LG OLED65C8 supports Miracast (as do the LG OLED55B8SLC and the Toshiba 49U5863DB), whereas the Samsung QE49Q6FN and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 do not support this feature. More ...

Miracast is a peer-to-peer wireless screencasting standard formed via Wi-Fi Direct connections in a manner similar to Bluetooth.

TVs with Miracast can use it to stream media from computers and mobile phones at very high quality without the need to attach cables first, making the whole process far easier.

Wi-Fi Direct

The LG OLED65C8 supports Wi-Fi Direct, and so do the Samsung QE49Q6FN and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100, whereas the LG OLED55B8SLC and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not. More ...

Wi-Fi Direct is a system to allow your TV to connect directly to other device without requiring a wireless router as a go-between.

Wi-Fi Direct is helpful on a TV because it allows a TV to connect to another device (such as a computer or phone) directly, meaning there is far less setup required - the devices just need to be 'paired' (normally at a press of a button) and the y can transfer data between each other. This is extremely useful for streaming media onto your TV from a computer or phone.

Picture-in-Picture

The LG OLED65C8 supports Picture-in-Picture, and so do the LG OLED55B8SLC and the Samsung QE49Q6FN, but the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not. More ...

Picture-in-Picture is a special mode for a TV that allows two programs to be shown at the same time, one in a smaller screen overlaid on top of the first.

Picture-in-Picture on a TV is very helpful for browsing the net or taking Skype calls while still watching a movie or TV programme on the main screen.

Voice Control

The LG OLED65C8 features voice control, and so do the LG OLED55B8SLC and the Samsung QE49Q6FN, however the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not. More ...

Voice Control on a TV is a system that allows users to control various functions of their TV (volume, channels, etc) purely with voice commands, rather than having to use the remote.

Voice controls mean that you can control the TV from your couch without having to find a remote or move to manually change the channel or adjust the settings, leading to a more streamlined experience.

Desktop Stand Included

The LG OLED65C8 has a desktop stand included, and so do the LG OLED55B8SLC and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100, but the Samsung QE49Q6FN and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not. More ...

Whether the TV has a desktop stand included with the purchase.

A desktop stand allows you to mount the TV on a desk or table for easy viewing. Without one, you'll have to either mount the TV on a wall or buy a stand at additional expense.

Four Months Newer

The LG OLED65C8 was released one month ago, but the LG OLED55B8SLC was released 17 months ago, the Samsung QE49Q6FN was released 17 months ago, the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 was released five months ago and the Toshiba 49U5863DB was released eight months ago

User Reviews Are a Little Better

The average user review score of the LG OLED65C8 is 96% based on 612 reviews, but the average rating of the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 is 93% (based on 177 reviews) and the average rating of the Toshiba 49U5863DB is 94% (based on 351 reviews).

3 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Higher Review Score

17 Reasons For for Choosing the Samsung QE49Q6FN

OLED / QLED Technology

The Samsung QE49Q6FN features OLED / QLED technology (as do the LG OLED55B8SLC and the LG OLED65C8), but the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not feature this benefit. More ...

OLED and QLED TVs use organic material that creates light when electricity is passed through it. This means that they do not require a back light, unlike standard LED TVs.

OLED and QLED TVs have much higher contrast than LED TVs as they have no back light. They also have a fast response rate, rich colours and a wide viewing angle. They are also cheaper to run.

Built-in Subwoofer

The Samsung QE49Q6FN has a built-in subwoofer (as do the LG OLED55B8SLC and the LG OLED65C8), but the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not have this feature. More ...

A subwoofer is a specialised bass speaker for your TV, designed to provide punchy and powerful low notes for music and movies. Alternatively, an underground dog.

A built-in subwoofer will give your TV's sound system a serious boost on the low end bass notes. This will be best experienced in the bangs, thumps and explosions of movies, or in bass-heavy music.

34% Higher RMS Rated Power

The Samsung QE49Q6FN is a 40W RMS rated power TV, and so do the LG OLED55B8SLC and the LG OLED65C8. That's 20W higher than the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Toshiba 49U5863DB (20W). 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.

Timeshift

The Samsung QE49Q6FN supports timeshift, and so do the LG OLED55B8SLC and the LG OLED65C8, whereas the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not. More ...

'Timeshifting' on a TV is the ability to record movies and programs to be viewed or listened to after the live broadcast.

TVs with timeshifting abilities mean that you don't have to watch programs when they are first broadcast - you can record them and watch them at your leisure.

Screen Mirroring

The Samsung QE49Q6FN supports screen mirroring, and so do the LG OLED55B8SLC and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100, whereas the LG OLED65C8 and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not. More ...

Screen Mirroring on a TV is a system that allows you to view the screen from a computer or mobile phone on your TV.

Screen mirroring on a TV is helpful because it allows you to easily display media and info running on a phone or laptop to a big screen for easy viewing with a minimum of effort.

Three USB Ports

The Samsung QE49Q6FN has three USB ports, and so does the LG OLED55B8SLC, however the Toshiba 49U5863DB only has two USB ports. More ...

We do not know the number of USB ports on the LG OLED65C8. It is possible that it does not have any USB ports.

'USB Port' is a measure of the amount of available USB ports on the TV.

More USB ports mean that more peripherals and devices can be plugged into the TV at once.

Game Mode

The Samsung QE49Q6FN has a game mode (as does the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100), whereas the LG OLED55B8SLC, the LG OLED65C8 and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not have this feature. More ...

'Game Mode' on a TV is a specialist mode that scales down the graphical fidelity of the video in order to free up processing power for response time.

In effect this trades slightly worse graphical capabilities for lessened input lag, meaning a smoother, more responsive experience when gaming.

Local Dimming

The Samsung QE49Q6FN features local dimming, and so do the LG OLED55B8SLC, the LG OLED65C8 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100, whereas the Toshiba 49U5863DB does not. More ...

'Local Dimming' on a TV is a function that dims certain sections of the backlight to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

Local dimming can be used to make blacks on the screen appear darker and richer by removing the backlight behind them.

USB Recording

The Samsung QE49Q6FN features USB recording, and so do the LG OLED55B8SLC, the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Toshiba 49U5863DB, but the LG OLED65C8 does not. More ...

A USB recording function on a TV allows you to record live TV onto a USB device.

Recording live TV onto a USB device is a good way to save films and TV programs for later viewing.

Digital Clean View

The Samsung QE49Q6FN supports Digital Clean View, and so does the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100, but the LG OLED55B8SLC, the LG OLED65C8 and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not. More ...

'Digital Clean View' is a function on Smart TVs that reduced the noise from low-quality signals.

Using Digital Clean View can drastically improve the picture quality on both analogue and digital signals by removing as much noise and blurring as possible from the picture.

Bluetooth

The Samsung QE49Q6FN supports Bluetooth, and so do the LG OLED55B8SLC, the LG OLED65C8 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100, whereas the Toshiba 49U5863DB does not. More ...

A Bluetooth connection on your TV means it can send and receive data from Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as headphones, mobile phones or remotes.

A Bluetooth connection on your phone allows you to use many newer wireless devices with your TV, such as wireless headphones and controlling your TV using your phone.

Wi-Fi Direct

The Samsung QE49Q6FN supports Wi-Fi Direct (as do the LG OLED65C8 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100), whereas the LG OLED55B8SLC and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not support this feature. More ...

Wi-Fi Direct is a system to allow your TV to connect directly to other device without requiring a wireless router as a go-between.

Wi-Fi Direct is helpful on a TV because it allows a TV to connect to another device (such as a computer or phone) directly, meaning there is far less setup required - the devices just need to be 'paired' (normally at a press of a button) and the y can transfer data between each other. This is extremely useful for streaming media onto your TV from a computer or phone.

Picture-in-Picture

The Samsung QE49Q6FN supports Picture-in-Picture (as do the LG OLED55B8SLC and the LG OLED65C8), but the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not support this feature. More ...

Picture-in-Picture is a special mode for a TV that allows two programs to be shown at the same time, one in a smaller screen overlaid on top of the first.

Picture-in-Picture on a TV is very helpful for browsing the net or taking Skype calls while still watching a movie or TV programme on the main screen.

Voice Control

The Samsung QE49Q6FN features voice control (as do the LG OLED55B8SLC and the LG OLED65C8), however the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not feature this benefit. More ...

Voice Control on a TV is a system that allows users to control various functions of their TV (volume, channels, etc) purely with voice commands, rather than having to use the remote.

Voice controls mean that you can control the TV from your couch without having to find a remote or move to manually change the channel or adjust the settings, leading to a more streamlined experience.

Better Expert Reviews

14 Reasons Against for Choosing the Samsung QE49Q6FN

25% Smaller Display Diagonal

The Samsung QE49Q6FN has a display diagonal of 49" (as does the Toshiba 49U5863DB), however the LG OLED55B8SLC and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 are both 55.1" TVs (6.1" larger) and the LG OLED65C8 is a 65" TV (16" larger). 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 are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

8mm Thicker

The Samsung QE49Q6FN is a 54.9mm thick TV. That's 8mm thicker than the LG OLED55B8SLC and the LG OLED65C8 (46.9mm), 206.1mm thinner than the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 (261mm) and 45.1mm thinner than the Toshiba 49U5863DB (100mm). More ...

The thickness of a 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.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Samsung QE49Q6FN has received a Kagoo Score of 88, but the LG OLED55B8SLC scored 90, the LG OLED65C8 scored 89 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 scored 89.

More Expensive by £389

The Samsung QE49Q6FN is £255 more expensive than the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and £389 more expensive than the Toshiba 49U5863DB.

Not As Many Stockists

The Samsung QE49Q6FN is only stocked by 8 retailers, however the LG OLED55B8SLC is stocked by 18 stores, the LG OLED65C8 is stocked by 19 shops and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 is stocked by 26 sellers. More ...

Fewer numbers of sellers reduces the chances of the product remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for this TV.
Older by Over One Year

The Samsung QE49Q6FN is 16 months older than the LG OLED65C8, one year older than the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 and nine months older than the Toshiba 49U5863DB. The Samsung QE49Q6FN is the same age as the LG OLED55B8SLC.

£29 More Expensive to Run Over Five Years

Less Popular

The Samsung QE49Q6FN is a less popular choice amongst buyers.

Inferior Energy Efficiency Rating

14 Less Awards

The Samsung QE49Q6FN has only received 1 award, however the LG OLED55B8SLC has received 15 awards and the LG OLED65C8 has received 13 awards.

13 Reasons For for Choosing the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100

Screen Mirroring

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 supports screen mirroring (as do the LG OLED55B8SLC and the Samsung QE49Q6FN), however the LG OLED65C8 and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not support this feature. More ...

Screen Mirroring on a TV is a system that allows you to view the screen from a computer or mobile phone on your TV.

Screen mirroring on a TV is helpful because it allows you to easily display media and info running on a phone or laptop to a big screen for easy viewing with a minimum of effort.

Smartphone Remote App

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 has a smartphone remote app, whereas the LG OLED55B8SLC, the LG OLED65C8, the Samsung QE49Q6FN and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not. More ...

'Smartphone Remote' states whether the TV has the capability to be controlled using your smartphone, acting as a surrogate remote. This will usually require the installation of an app onto your phone.

Using your smartphone as a remote is helpful because it means that you don't have to use the official remote to control the TV - your smartphone will work instead. Helpful since you will quite often already have it in your pocket!

Game Mode

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 has a game mode, and so does the Samsung QE49Q6FN, however the LG OLED55B8SLC, the LG OLED65C8 and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not. More ...

'Game Mode' on a TV is a specialist mode that scales down the graphical fidelity of the video in order to free up processing power for response time.

In effect this trades slightly worse graphical capabilities for lessened input lag, meaning a smoother, more responsive experience when gaming.

Local Dimming

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 features local dimming (as do the LG OLED55B8SLC, the LG OLED65C8 and the Samsung QE49Q6FN), however the Toshiba 49U5863DB does not feature this benefit. More ...

'Local Dimming' on a TV is a function that dims certain sections of the backlight to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

Local dimming can be used to make blacks on the screen appear darker and richer by removing the backlight behind them.

USB Recording

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 features USB recording (as do the LG OLED55B8SLC, the Samsung QE49Q6FN and the Toshiba 49U5863DB), whereas the LG OLED65C8 does not feature this benefit. More ...

A USB recording function on a TV allows you to record live TV onto a USB device.

Recording live TV onto a USB device is a good way to save films and TV programs for later viewing.

Noise Reduction

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 supports noise reduction, and so do the LG OLED55B8SLC and the LG OLED65C8, whereas the Samsung QE49Q6FN and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not. More ...

Noise reduction helps reduce intrusive audio and visual noise for a clearer and better viewing experience.

Digital Clean View

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 supports Digital Clean View (as does the Samsung QE49Q6FN), whereas the LG OLED55B8SLC, the LG OLED65C8 and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not support this feature. More ...

'Digital Clean View' is a function on Smart TVs that reduced the noise from low-quality signals.

Using Digital Clean View can drastically improve the picture quality on both analogue and digital signals by removing as much noise and blurring as possible from the picture.

Bluetooth

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 supports Bluetooth (as do the LG OLED55B8SLC, the LG OLED65C8 and the Samsung QE49Q6FN), however the Toshiba 49U5863DB does not support this feature. More ...

A Bluetooth connection on your TV means it can send and receive data from Bluetooth-enabled devices, such as headphones, mobile phones or remotes.

A Bluetooth connection on your phone allows you to use many newer wireless devices with your TV, such as wireless headphones and controlling your TV using your phone.

Wi-Fi Direct

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 supports Wi-Fi Direct, and so do the LG OLED65C8 and the Samsung QE49Q6FN, however the LG OLED55B8SLC and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not. More ...

Wi-Fi Direct is a system to allow your TV to connect directly to other device without requiring a wireless router as a go-between.

Wi-Fi Direct is helpful on a TV because it allows a TV to connect to another device (such as a computer or phone) directly, meaning there is far less setup required - the devices just need to be 'paired' (normally at a press of a button) and the y can transfer data between each other. This is extremely useful for streaming media onto your TV from a computer or phone.

Desktop Stand Included

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 has a desktop stand included, and so do the LG OLED55B8SLC and the LG OLED65C8, whereas the Samsung QE49Q6FN and the Toshiba 49U5863DB do not. More ...

Whether the TV has a desktop stand included with the purchase.

A desktop stand allows you to mount the TV on a desk or table for easy viewing. Without one, you'll have to either mount the TV on a wall or buy a stand at additional expense.

More Shops Are Selling it

A greater number of retailers increases the price competition amongst retailers for this TV and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

More Customers Recommend it

92.1% of 177 customers recommend the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100, but only 88% of 657 customers recommend the LG OLED65C8.

13 Reasons Against for Choosing the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100

Smaller Display Diagonal

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 is a 55.1" TV. That's 0.1" larger than the LG OLED55B8SLC (55"), 9.9" smaller than the LG OLED65C8 (65") and 6.1" larger than the Samsung QE49Q6FN and the Toshiba 49U5863DB (49"). 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 are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

Does Not Feature OLED / QLED Technology

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 does not feature OLED / QLED technology (As does the the Toshiba 49U5863DB), however the LG OLED55B8SLC, the LG OLED65C8 and the Samsung QE49Q6FN feature this benefit. More ...

OLED and QLED TVs use organic material that creates light when electricity is passed through it. This means that they do not require a back light, unlike standard LED TVs.

OLED and QLED TVs have much higher contrast than LED TVs as they have no back light. They also have a fast response rate, rich colours and a wide viewing angle. They are also cheaper to run.

A Lot Thicker

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 has a thickness of 261mm, however the LG OLED55B8SLC and the LG OLED65C8 are both 46.9mm thick TVs (214.1mm thinner), the Samsung QE49Q6FN is a 54.9mm thick TV (206.1mm thinner) and the Toshiba 49U5863DB is a 100mm thick TV (161mm thinner). More ...

The thickness of a 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.

Vastly Slower Motion Interpolation Frequency

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 is a 1,400Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 1,200Hz slower than the Samsung QE49Q6FN (2,600Hz). 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.

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

20W Lower RMS Rated Power

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 has an RMS rated power of 20W (as does the Toshiba 49U5863DB), however the LG OLED55B8SLC, the LG OLED65C8 and the Samsung QE49Q6FN are all 40W RMS rated power TVs (20W higher). 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.

One Less USB Port

The number of USB ports on the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 is two (as does the Toshiba 49U5863DB), but the Samsung QE49Q6FN only has three USB ports. More ...

We do not know the number of USB ports on the LG OLED65C8. It is possible that it does not have any USB ports.

'USB Port' is a measure of the amount of available USB ports on the TV.

More USB ports mean that more peripherals and devices can be plugged into the TV at once.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 has received a Kagoo Score of 89, whereas the LG OLED55B8SLC scored 90.

£134 More Expensive

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 is more expensive than the Toshiba 49U5863DB by £134.

Four Months Older

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 is older than the LG OLED65C8 by four months.

51% Higher Running Costs Over Five Years

The running costs of the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 are £150 which is £22 more than the Samsung QE49Q6FN and £51 more than the Toshiba 49U5863DB over five years. Show assumptions.

Energy Efficiency Rating is Worse

The Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 has a European Union Energy Efficiency Rating of "A", whereas the LG OLED55B8SLC has a rating of "A", the LG OLED65C8 has a rating of "A", the Samsung QE49Q6FN has a rating of "B" and the Toshiba 49U5863DB has a rating of "A+".

Marginally Lower User Review Score

The average user rating of the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 is 93%, whereas the average user rating of the LG OLED55B8SLC is 96% (based on 914 reviews), the LG OLED65C8 is 96% (based on 612 reviews) and the Toshiba 49U5863DB is 94% (based on 351 reviews).

Marginally Lower Overall Review Score

The average overall rating of the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 is 93%, whereas the average overall rating of the LG OLED55B8SLC is 96% (based on 955 reviews), the LG OLED65C8 is 95% (based on 648 reviews) and the Samsung QE49Q6FN is 96% (based on 1 review).

The Toshiba 49U5863DB is a 49" TV, and so does the Samsung QE49Q6FN. That's 6.1" smaller than the LG OLED55B8SLC and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 (55.1") and 16" smaller than the LG OLED65C8 (65"). 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 are viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

Does Not Feature OLED / QLED Technology

The Toshiba 49U5863DB does not feature OLED / QLED technology (As does the the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100), however the LG OLED55B8SLC, the LG OLED65C8 and the Samsung QE49Q6FN feature this benefit. More ...

OLED and QLED TVs use organic material that creates light when electricity is passed through it. This means that they do not require a back light, unlike standard LED TVs.

OLED and QLED TVs have much higher contrast than LED TVs as they have no back light. They also have a fast response rate, rich colours and a wide viewing angle. They are also cheaper to run.

A Lot Thicker

The Toshiba 49U5863DB has a thickness of 100mm, however the LG OLED55B8SLC and the LG OLED65C8 are both 46.9mm thick TVs (53.1mm thinner), the Samsung QE49Q6FN is a 54.9mm thick TV (45.1mm thinner) and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 is a 261mm thick TV (161mm thicker). More ...

The thickness of a 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.

20W Lower RMS Rated Power

The Toshiba 49U5863DB has an RMS rated power of 20W (as does the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100), however the LG OLED55B8SLC, the LG OLED65C8 and the Samsung QE49Q6FN are all 40W RMS rated power TVs (20W higher). 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.

One Less USB Port

The number of USB ports on the Toshiba 49U5863DB is two (as does the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100), but the Samsung QE49Q6FN only has three USB ports. More ...

We do not know the number of USB ports on the LG OLED65C8. It is possible that it does not have any USB ports.

'USB Port' is a measure of the amount of available USB ports on the TV.

More USB ports mean that more peripherals and devices can be plugged into the TV at once.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Toshiba 49U5863DB has received a Kagoo Score of 87, whereas the LG OLED55B8SLC scored 90, the LG OLED65C8 scored 89, the Samsung QE49Q6FN scored 88 and the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100 scored 89.

Fewer Sellers

Only 8 retailers sells the Toshiba 49U5863DB, but 18 sellers sell the LG OLED55B8SLC, 19 sellers sell the LG OLED65C8 and 26 stores sell the Samsung Series 7 UE55RU7100. More ...

The smaller the number of retailers that stock this TV, the lower the competition amongst retailers to keep prices low.

Worse for Watching Sport

The Toshiba 49U5863DB is worse for watching sport than the LG OLED55B8SLC and Samsung QE49Q6FN. More ...

When ranking TVs for sport, we’ve concentrated primarily on the most important attributes. First off, we concentrate on the ‘motion interpolation frequency’. This is important for fast-moving spots, since it reduces the amount of blurring on screen. We also take the size of the screen into account - sports matches are far more immersive when viewed on a giant screen! Finally, we look at display brightness and display resolution, so that the games always appear as fully-detailed and bright.
Worse for Playing Games

The Toshiba 49U5863DB is worse for playing games than the LG OLED55B8SLC, LG OLED65C8 and Samsung QE49Q6FN. More ...

When ranking TVs for games, we’ve concentrated on a number of key attributes: primarily ‘motion interpolation frequency’ and ‘high refresh rate’. Both connect to the quality of the image coming from the games console to the TV - both reduce instances of blurring caused by fast moving objects on the screen, and allow the image to appear more detailed and cleaner.
