The Hisense U6G excels in a dark room due to its full-array local dimming feature, which improves contrast and black levels, making it suitable for movies. It also has a higher peak brightness, making it more suitable for daytime viewing. However, its limited viewing angles may not be ideal for wide seating arrangements. In contrast, the Samsung CU8000 relies on edge-lit backlighting, which might not offer the same dark room performance. While the Samsung model includes a voice command feature, it may not be as versatile in media consumption as the Hisense U6G. Both TVs have a 60Hz refresh rate and support 4k content, but if you prioritize picture quality, especially for movie watching or in varied lighting conditions, the Hisense U6G could be the better option.
