Reasons For

LG 50UH635 Philips 55PUT6400
5 Reasons For
25.7mm Thinner
LG 50UH635 is 53.3mm thick, but the Philips 55PUT6400 is a 79mm thick TV (25.7mm thicker).

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.

£79 Cheaper
The LG 50UH635 costs £79.01 less than the Philips 55PUT6400.
User Reviews Are a Lot Better
The average user review score of the LG 50UH635 is 100% based on 2 reviews, however the average rating of the Philips 55PUT6400 is 83% (based on 88 reviews).
Better Brand
LG TVs have an average rating of 86.2%, whereas Philips has an average rating of 84.3%.
Better for Watching Sport
The LG 50UH635 is better for watching sport than the Philips 55PUT6400.
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.

3 Reasons For
A Little Larger Display Diagonal
The Philips 55PUT6400 has a display diagonal of 55", whereas the LG 50UH635 is only a 50" TV (5" 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 viewing from a distance of 6ft (72 inches) you would need a TV display diagonal of 60 inches.

Read more Read less | Edit
Ethernet Port
The Philips 55PUT6400 has an ethernet port, however the LG 50UH635 does not have an ethernet port.

An ethernet port lets you connect the TV directly to your router with an ethernet cable.

An ethernet connection is more reliable than wifi and is useful if you do not have a wiki network or the wifi signal is weak. Depending on the speed of your wifi network and ethernet connection may be faster than wifi which means less buffering when streaming content to the TV.

What are They Best Used For

Watching Films

When ranking TVs for their suitability to display films, we’ve concentrated on several key attributes. These include contrast ratio and local dimming, which allow the dark colours on the screen to look deeper and richer - helpful for nighttime scenes. Also the screen resolution plays a part - 4K and higher resolutions mean that the image will be clearer and more detailed. Finally the size of the screen is also important - explosions and big dramatic reveals are so much more effective when you don’t have to squint to see the screen!
