11% thinner Edit
The LG 43LF6300 has a depth of 55.1mm, however the Samsung UN50J5200 is a 60.96mm thick TV (5.86mm thicker). 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.

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.

3% lighter Edit
LG 43LF6300 is 10.2kg heavy. That's 277.98g lighter than the Samsung UN50J5200 (10.5kg). 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.

Based on 17 user reviews, the LG 43LF6300 has an average review score of 93%, whereas the Samsung UN50J5200 has an average rating of 90% (based on 2 reviews).
4 Reasons For
Larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UN50J5200 has a display diagonal of 49.5", but the LG 43LF6300 is only a 43" TV (6.5" 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.

Two RF ports quantitys Edit
The Samsung UN50J5200 has two RF ports quantitys, however the LG 43LF6300 only has one RF ports quantity. Read more
