Reasons For

2 Reasons For
Faster motion interpolation frequency Edit
The LG 65UF8600 is a 240Hz motion interpolation frequency TV. That's 120Hz faster than the Samsung UN65KU6500 (120Hz). Read more

The motion interpolation frequency is the frame rate which the TV is able to artificially create by inserting additional frames into the picture between the frames included in the original video source. Motion interpolation technology can sometimes create some unwanted side effects such glitches when the technology suddenly activates during an action scene. Most modern TVs will have an option to switch off the motion interpolation if it is not desired.

A faster motion interpolation frequency will result in smoother action scenes, less motion blur and a more life like image.

Two number of loudspeakerss Edit
The LG 65UF8600 is a two number of loudspeakers TV, whereas the Samsung UN65KU6500 only has one number of loudspeakers. Read more

The number of loudspeakers is the total number of speakers provided with the TV, either inside the TV casing or as external speakers.

A greater number of speakers will allow for better quality audio and different frequencies. Multiple external speakers will enable to the TV to play surround sound audio.

5 Reasons For
0.5" larger display diagonal Edit
The Samsung UN65KU6500 has a display diagonal of 65", but the LG 65UF8600 is only a 64.5" TV (0.5" 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.

Lighter Edit
Samsung UN65KU6500 is 25.5kg heavy, but the LG 65UF8600 is a 31.3kg heavy TV (5.8kg heavier). Read more
