Best Home Theater Update: LG 55UK6300PUE vs Samsung 55NU7100

LG 55UK6300PUE vs Samsung 55NU7100

I had an opportunity to compare Samsung 55NU7100 vs LG 55UK6300PUE — the TVs, that become available for purchase in 2018, costing at around $500.

The TV from Samsung (NU7100 series) features the PurColor technology which is able to reproduce millions of color shades and helps in the creation of the life-like vision. The TV from LG (UK630 series) features the IPS technology which uses the in-plane switching to provide a strong contrast ratio.

Picture

Both of these models have quite satisfying possibilities when it comes to decent picture reproduction. The LG 55UK6300PUE, except supporting the multi-format 4K HDR, also uses the tone mapping technology to provide scene-by-scene optimization. I was impressed with the accuracy of the nature scenes look. The Samsung 55NU7100 gives not only saturated colors but also provides smooth actions on a fast-moving content, which works especially great for sports programs.

Features & performance

Both TVs support the most popular video formats: AVI, MP4, 3GPP, MKV, TS, and M2TS. Also, they support the most essential audio file formats, like MP3, WMA, AAC, etc.

The TVs have quite standard for their segment 20W stereo speakers. They both reproduce quite clear, high-quality sound but are obviously not powerful enough for a fulfilling home theater. So, it’s recommendable to hook up some external speakers. However, the dynamics, integrated into the LG model feature DTS decoder versus the Samsung 55NU7100 which doesn’t have any features to provide 3D sound.

Design & build quality

Comparing LG 55UK6300PUE vs Samsung 55NU7100 external look, I marked that they have equal screen size (55 inches). Despite being from different manufacturers they also have similar Y-shaped stands. In fact, both TVs are flat and look quite similar, but the Samsung 55NU7100 has a bit thinner frame around the display.

LG 55UK6300PUE pros & cons

Pros

  • The TV can be connected to an external source via Bluetooth.
  • The model is supplied with an intelligent voice control feature (ThinQ).

Cons

  • You can’t get access to HBO.

Samsung 55NU7100 pros & cons
