Reasons For

LG 50UH635 Samsung UE50JU6800
3 Reasons For
9.9mm Thinner
The LG 50UH635 is a 53.3mm thick TV, whereas the Samsung UE50JU6800 is a 63.2mm thick TV (9.9mm 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.

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!

Compare the best TVs for film.

Watching Sport

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.

Running Costs Over 5 Years

TV running costs calculated based on an average of 5 hours of use per day. The running cost comprises the electricity cost when using the TV and the electricity standby cost. Compare all energy saving TVs.

Environmental Impact

We have calculated the amount of CO2 that will be generated by running each of these TVs for 5 years. We have then converted that into the number of tree seedlings that you would need to plant and grow for 10 years in order to offset that amount of CO2.
