Reasons For

LG 55UH850 LG OLED65E6
4 Reasons For
5.2mm Thinner
The LG 55UH850 is a 51.5mm thick TV, whereas the LG OLED65E6 is a 56.7mm thick TV (5.2mm 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.

£77 Cheaper to Run Over Five Years
The LG 55UH850 only costs £112 to run over five years whereas the LG OLED65E6 costs £189 to run (69% more).

Higher Energy Efficiency Rating
The energy efficiency rating of the LG 55UH850 is "A+", but the rating of the LG OLED65E6 is "A".
Better Chip.de Review Score
Chip.de gave the LG 55UH850 a review score of 94%, however the LG OLED65E6 only has a rating of 90% from the same site.
6 Reasons For
16% Larger Display Diagonal
The LG OLED65E6 is a 65" TV. That's 10" larger than the LG 55UH850 (55").

‘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
OLED/QLED Technology
The LG OLED65E6 features OLED/QLED technology, but the LG 55UH850 does not feature OLED/QLED technology.

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.

Lovely, elegant design

The UH8500 is one of the best LG LCD 4K TVs we've reviewed to-date and it's a definite improvement over the generally mediocre LCD 4K models from 2014 and 2015 that we've looked at. That said, while we recommend the UH8500 in general terms, there are...
