Reasons For

1 Reason For
1.5kg lighter Edit
The Samsung UN48J5500 is an 11.3kg heavy TV, whereas the Samsung UN50J6300 is a 12.8kg heavy TV (1.5kg heavier). Read more

The weight is the total weight of the TV excluding all packaging.

A lighter weight TV will be easier to move around and to mount on a wall. Some of the larger, very heavy TVs may require lightweight partition walls to be reinforced before the TV could be mounted.

5 Reasons For
Moderately larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UN50J6300 has a display diagonal of 49.5", whereas the Samsung UN48J5500 is only a 47.6" TV (1.9" smaller). Read more

The display diagonal of a TV is the most common measure of screen size and is the distance from the top left to the bottom right of the visible part of a TV screen 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. 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.

TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies.

One more USB 2.0 ports quantity Edit
The Samsung UN50J6300 is a three USB 2.0 ports quantity TV, whereas the Samsung UN48J5500 only has two USB 2.0 ports quantitys. Read more

Four HDMI ports quantitys Edit
The Samsung UN50J6300 has four HDMI ports quantitys, however the Samsung UN48J5500 only has three HDMI ports quantitys. Read more

The HDMI ports quantity is the number of ports that the TV has that will accept a HDMI cable. HDMI is the most common type of cable used to connect modern TVs, DVD players, games consoles etc.

A greater number of HDMI ports will allow you to permanently connect more devices to the TV and will reduce the need to reach around the back of the TV to unplug and plug in cables when switching between devices.

4% thinner Edit
Samsung UN50J6300 is 63.5mm thick. That's 2.5mm thinner than the Samsung UN48J5500 (63.5mm). Read more

The depth of the TV is the thickness of the 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.
