5 Reasons For
Local Dimming
The Samsung UN65MU6500 features local dimming, however the Sony XBR65X850F does not.

'Local Dimming' on a TV is a function that dims certain sections of the backlight to control the level of light/color intensity in a given part of the screen.

Local dimming can be used to make blacks on the screen appear darker and richer by removing the backlight behind them.
