Reasons For

Philips 49PUS6501 Samsung UE49KU6100
3 Reasons For
23% Faster High Frequency Rate
The Philips 49PUS6501 has a high frequency rate of 1,800Hz. That's 400Hz faster than the Samsung UE49KU6100 (1,400Hz).

The refresh rate (also known as the high frequency rate) is the number of times that the image on the screen is refreshed per second. It affects how smoothly motion on the screen appears.

Action will appear smoother on TVs with a higher frequency rate: a TV with a high frequency rate of 30Hz refreshes the image on the screen once every 30 times every second. However a TV with a high frequency rate of 60Hz would refresh the image on the screen 60 times every second which means that action scenes would appear smoother.

Better for Watching Sport
The Philips 49PUS6501 is better for watching sport than the Samsung UE49KU6100.
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.

Better for Playing Games
The Philips 49PUS6501 is better for playing games than the Samsung UE49KU6100.
When ranking TVs for games, we’ve concentrated on a number of key attributes: primarily ‘motion interpolation frequency’ and ‘high refresh rate’. Both connect to the quality of the image coming from the games console to the TV - both reduce instances of blurring caused by fast moving objects on the screen, and allow the image to appear more detailed and cleaner.

4 Reasons For

Better Brand
Samsung TVs have an average rating of 90.7%, but Philips has an average rating of 84.3%.
Better for Watching Films
The Samsung UE49KU6100 is better for watching films than the Philips 49PUS6501.
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!
