We compared all the other televisions which also have a built-in camera to this TV and we think the Samsung UN55ES8000[plb_403312_price], the LG 55EA980[plb_2042821_price], or the Panasonic TX-55ASW804[plb_2382034_price] is also worth considering.

It is worth considering alternative televisions which also feature OLED technology including the 55EA980[pl_2042821_price], the 55EA9809[pl_2043038_price], or the 55EA970[pl_2164589_price] all from LG which also has a higher rating.
