Higher Energy Efficiency Rating
The energy efficiency rating of the LG 55UH850 is "A+", but the rating of the Panasonic TX-58DX802B is "A".
Better Brand
LG TVs have an average rating of 86.5%, however Panasonic has an average rating of 46.7%.
2 Reasons For
6% Larger Display Diagonal
The Panasonic TX-58DX802B is a 58" TV. That's 3" 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
15.5mm Thinner
The Panasonic TX-58DX802B is a 36mm thick TV, whereas the LG 55UH850 is a 51.5mm thick TV (15.5mm 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.
