Reasons For

Samsung UE48JU7000 Samsung UE50JU6800
8 Reasons For
3D
The Samsung UE48JU7000 is a 3D TV, however the Samsung UE50JU6800 is not 3D.

‘3D’ describes whether the TV can display 3D movies and programmes. Requires compatible 3D glasses to properly function.

3D technology has become increasingly popular as the amount of 3D film and TV content has increased dramatically in recent years. All 3D TVs will also display regular 2D content and most will allow you to switch on and off the 3D effect on 3D content. 3D compatible TVs allow you to watch 3D content. For most TVs you will need to wear special glasses to see the 3D effect.

Read more Read less | Edit
Built-In Subwoofer
The Samsung UE48JU7000 has a built-in subwoofer, but the Samsung UE50JU6800 does not have a built-in subwoofer.

A subwoofer is a specialised bass speaker for your TV, designed to provide punchy and powerful low notes for music and movies. Alternatively, an underground dog.

A built-in subwoofer will give your TV's sound system a serious boost on the low end bass notes. This will be best experienced in the bangs, thumps and explosions of movies, or in bass-heavy music.

Read more Read less | Edit
Local Dimming
The Samsung UE48JU7000 features local dimming, whereas the Samsung UE50JU6800 does not feature local dimming.

'Local Dimming' on a TV is a function that dims certain sections of the backlight to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

Local dimming can be used to make blacks on the screen appear darker and richer by removing the backlight behind them.

£29 Cheaper to Run Over Five Years
The Samsung UE48JU7000 only costs £86 to run over five years whereas the Samsung UE50JU6800 costs £115 to run (34% more).

Three More Awards
The Samsung UE48JU7000 has 4 awards, however the Samsung UE50JU6800 has 1 award.
Expert Reviews Are Better
The average expert review score of the Samsung UE48JU7000 is 85%, but the average rating of the Samsung UE50JU6800 is 80% (based on 1 review).
User Reviews Are a Little Better
The average user review score of the Samsung UE48JU7000 is 93%, but the average rating of the Samsung UE50JU6800 is 91% (based on 15 reviews).
Better Benchmark.pl Review Score
Benchmark.pl's Samsung UE48JU7000 review gave it a score of 90%, however the Samsung UE50JU6800's rating was only 80% from the same site.
3 Reasons For
A Little Larger Display Diagonal
The Samsung UE50JU6800 has a display diagonal of 50", whereas the Samsung UE48JU7000 is only a 48" TV (2" 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
7% Thinner
Samsung UE50JU6800 is 63.2mm thick. That's 4.2mm thinner than the Samsung UE48JU7000 (67.4mm).

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.

Compare the best TVs for sport.

Playing Games

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.
