Reasons For

LG OLED55B6 Samsung UN65MU9000
1 Reason For
OLED/QLED Technology
The LG OLED55B6 features OLED/QLED technology, but the Samsung UN65MU9000 does not feature OLED/QLED technology.

OLED and QLED TVs use organic material that creates light when electricity is passed through it. This means that they do not require a back light, unlike standard LED TVs.

OLED and QLED TVs have much higher contrast than LED TVs as they have no back light. They also have a fast response rate, rich colours and a wide viewing angle. They are also cheaper to run.

7 Reasons For
10" Larger Display Diagonal
The Samsung UN65MU9000 is a 65" TV. That's 10" larger than the LG OLED55B6 (55").

‘Display Diagonal’ is the measure of the size of the TV screen from top-left to bottom-right corner, 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. TVs with a bigger display diagonal allow you to make the most of HD content and are great for watching movies. 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.

Read more Read less | Edit
A Bit Thinner
Samsung UN65MU9000 is 48.26mm thick, but the LG OLED55B6 is a 48.6mm thick TV (0.34mm thicker).

The thickness of a 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.
