Inferior Technical Features

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The SE50FO04 does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other similar spec televisions that were released around the same time as this TV also do not have a built-in camera.

We compared this TV to all the other TVs with a built-in camera and we think the Samsung UN46ES8000F which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.
