Higher Energy Efficiency Rating
The energy efficiency rating of the Philips 50PFH6550 is "A+", but the rating of the Philips 55PUS7150 is "A".
4 Reasons For
5" Larger Display Diagonal
The Philips 55PUS7150 has a display diagonal of 55", however the Philips 50PFH6550 is only a 50" TV (5" smaller).

‘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.

50 Cd/m² Brighter Display Brightness
The Philips 55PUS7150 has a display brightness of 400 cd/m², whereas the Philips 50PFH6550 is only a 350 cd/m² display brightness TV (50 cd/m² dimmer).

'Display Brightness' is a measure of how bright the screen on the TV is.

A brighter display means the screen will have a greater capacity for brightness. This can be useful in combating glare from the sun in very bright rooms, or for making the screen visible from further away.

Read more Read less | Edit
5W Higher RMS Rated Power
The Philips 55PUS7150 is a 25W RMS rated power TV. That's 5W higher than the Philips 50PFH6550 (20W).

RMS rated power stands for Root Mean Square rated power and it is typically used to measure the power output of the audio element of the TV.

A higher RMS rated power means that the audio system on the TV is more powerful and will be able to play the audio at higher volumes. A higher RMS power may also result in better quality audio at normal volume levels.

Read more Read less | Edit
Significantly Thinner
The Philips 55PUS7150 is a 37mm thick TV. That's 40mm thinner than the Philips 50PFH6550 (77mm).

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.
