Detailed comparison: LG UN7300 or Samsung TU7000

Due to the IPS panel, the UN7300 is more suitable for bright rooms, as it has a good reflection handling and also a wide viewing angle. In dark surroundings, however, its picture quality is not quite as convincing as that of the TU7000.
Gaming is a lot of fun on both devices due to the low input lag and the ALLM. However, you should not expect too much in terms of next gen gaming with Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X, as both TVs have a 60Hz panel and no HDMI 2.1 interface. Also a variable refresh rate is not supported on both TVs.
The UN7300 can unfortunately not removed Judder, which can be really annoying. In this respect the TU7000 is better equipped, because Judder can at least be removed from some sources.

Like all Samsung TVs, the TU7000 uses a VA panel. Thus it produces a deep black and has a high contrast ratio of 5100:1, which results in a reasonable picture quality in dark surroundings. However, the premium UHD TV does not get very bright and its reflection handling is not really good either, which means that the TU7000 struggles in bright surroundings. Its viewing angle is quite narrow, so that even at slightly oblique viewing angles the colors look washed-out - in this. respect the LG UN7300 can really shine!
Since both devices are entry-level models, their equipment is not really big. You can not expect that these affordable devices have Local dimming or Dolby Vision, but at least the TU7000 supports Dolby Atmos, which can be used with external sound systems to create a cinema-like atmosphere.

Our conclusion: The LG UN7300 shows a better performance

Like so often, it depends on the surroundings in which the TV will be used, so you can tell which TV is better suited for you. If you are looking for a TV for a bright room that has a wide viewing angle, the UN7300 will not disappoint. If you want to use the TV in a darker room you should rather go for the TU7000. But in direct comparison to the UN7300, it does not do quite as well. If you are looking for a slightly better TV with a VA panel, which can get brighter, has a higher contrast ratio and better motion handling, you can also consider the TU8000, which is also an entry level model. This one can take on the UN7300 a bit better than the slightly cheaper TU7000, but has the same deficits.

Since the TVs listed here are affordable models, their equipment is not really big. But for an occasional movie night or afternoon television they are still perfectly sufficient. Home cinema enthusiasts, on the other hand, will have to dig a little deeper into their pockets.
