8 Reasons For
Timeshift
The LG 49UM7400 supports timeshift, but the Samsung Series 7 UE50RU7020 does not support this feature.

'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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Parental Controls
The LG 49UM7400 supports parental controls, but the Samsung Series 7 UE50RU7020 does not.

Parental controls on a TV allow users to limit the films and programs that can be viewed on the TV, preventing adults-only content from being viewed by children.

Parental controls are a good way of stopping children accidentally (or totally not-accidentally) watching violent or sexual programs when parents aren't around to stop them.

USB Recording
The LG 49UM7400 features USB recording, however the Samsung Series 7 UE50RU7020 does not feature this benefit.

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Miracast
The LG 49UM7400 supports Miracast, but the Samsung Series 7 UE50RU7020 does not support this feature.

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Voice Control
The LG 49UM7400 features voice control, whereas the Samsung Series 7 UE50RU7020 does not.

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
£88 Cheaper
The LG 49UM7400 costs £87.91 less than the Samsung Series 7 UE50RU7020.
More Shops Are Selling It
A greater number of stores increases the price competition amongst retailers for this TV and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.
74% Cheaper to Run Over Five Years
The LG 49UM7400 only costs £110 to run over five years but the Samsung Series 7 UE50RU7020 costs £429 to run (291% more).

5 Reasons For
Marginally Larger Display Diagonal
The Samsung Series 7 UE50RU7020 has a display diagonal of 50", whereas the LG 49UM7400 is only a 49" TV (1" smaller).

‘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.

Read more Read less | Edit
28% Thinner
Samsung Series 7 UE50RU7020 is 59.1mm thick. That's 22mm thinner than the LG 49UM7400 (81.1mm).

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.

Read more Read less | Edit
Digital Clean View
The Samsung Series 7 UE50RU7020 supports Digital Clean View, however the LG 49UM7400 does not.

'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.
