Reasons For

Samsung UE50JU6800 Sony KD-49X8309
2 Reasons For
1" Larger Display Diagonal
The Samsung UE50JU6800 has a display diagonal of 50", whereas the Sony KD-49X8309 is only a 49" TV (1" 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.

Better Brand
Samsung TVs have an average rating of 90.7%, whereas Sony has an average rating of 69.3%.
3 Reasons For
Hugely Faster Motion Interpolation Frequency
The Sony KD-49X8309 has a motion interpolation frequency of 1,000Hz, but the Samsung UE50JU6800 is only a 140Hz motion interpolation frequency TV (860Hz slower).

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

Read more Read less | Edit
6% Thinner
Sony KD-49X8309 is 60mm thick. That's 3.2mm thinner than the Samsung UE50JU6800 (63.2mm).

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.

8% Cheaper to Run Over Five Years
Over five years the Sony KD-49X8309 is £9 cheaper to run than the Samsung UE50JU6800.
