Why Has it Scored 70 for Watching Films On?

Televisions are excellent for watching films - from quiet emotional dramas to big blockbuster explosion fests. Watching films on a TV can take several forms: you can watch on terrestrial channels such as BBC or ITV, on the Video On Demand services such as iPlayer or Netflix, or just pop in a DVD!

We have tried to pull together what we believe are the best TVs for watching films. When choosing this list, we’ve concentrated on the most important attributes for films. 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!

Samsung UE48JU7500 In-Depth Analysis for Films

Local Dimming

Features Local Dimming

The Samsung UE48JU7500 features local dimming. Most of the other TVs also feature local dimming.

Cheap TVs use a fixed back light which remains the same brightness across the entire screen. Local dimming means that the backlight brightness varies across the screen so that bright areas remain bright but dark areas are still dark. The net result is a higher contrast ratio which will films appear more punchy and life like.

Edit

OLED Technology

Does Not Feature OLED Technology

The UE48JU7500 does not feature OLED technology. Most of the other TVs also do not feature OLED technology.

OLED technology has an infinite contrast ratio. This means that the blacks are absolutely black as no light at all is emitted from this part of the screen. The result is that dark scenes in films are super clear.

Edit

HD Type

4K

The highest display resolution of the UE48JU7500 is 4K. That's over four times the display resolution of the most frequently found HD type of Full HD. 4K Ultra HD TVs have a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels.

A 4K HD type is actually the best display resolution amongst all TVs.

Amongst comparable types of television the worst display resolution is HD Ready.

A high display resolution means that details in films will appear much sharper. Most films are available in Full HD (1920x1080) as standard these days and bluray players will play content in Full HD. Some streaming services are starting to provide content in even higher resolution such as 4K (3840x2160). Most cinemas project films in either 2K (1048x1080) or 4K.

Edit

Video Apps

Supports a Netflix Video App

The UE48JU7500 has a greater number of video apps than most TVs. This television supports a Netflix video app, which is the most frequently supported video app supported by TVs.

Built in video apps are a great way of quickly watching films on your TV. Popular apps such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video will stream films straight to your TV from the internet without any additional boxes or devices.

Edit

Display Diagonal

Average Display Diagonal

With a display diagonal of 48 inches, the UE48JU7500 has a relatively typical display diagonal compared to most of the other TVs.

For a truly immersive, cinema like experience it's hard to beat a massive screen. A large screen will fill a larger proportion of your field of vision and make you feel more absorbed in the film.

Why Has it Scored 70 for Watching Sport On?

Given the cost and distance involved in going to see live sports, it’s unsurprising that televisions are used extensively to watch all different kinds of sports - from Saturday afternoon football to the Olympics. However some TVs are better than others for watching sports: here we have tried to rank the best televisions for watching sports of all different kinds.

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.

Why Has it Scored 72 for Playing Games On?

Televisions are frequently used for gaming, since it’s easy to hook up a games console such as an Xbox to the set, grab some friends, and spend the evening gaming! However not all TVs are equally good for playing games on: we have tried to rank the best televisions to hook up a games console to when you need some relaxation time!

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.
