Samsung 55NU8000 (a 2018 year model) belongs to the NU8000 series, while LG 55SJ8000 (a 2017 year model) is from the SJ8000 series. Both series include other high-performance models that support various modern technologies. These two TV models are mid-priced solutions since they cost around $1,000. Both models use the Edge LED backlight technology.
These TVs support the modern 4K video standard. Colors are natural and vivid due to the HDR10 technology used. Samsung 55NU8000 uses such technologies as Dynamic Crystal Color and Essential Contrast Plus, while LG 55SJ8000 uses the Ultra Luminance and the Nano Cell technologies. Comparing LG 55SJ8000 vs Samsung 55NU8000 in terms of motion handling, we see that they use Motion Rate for Samsung and TruMotion for LG 55SJ8000.
