Difference between FHD and UHD

Important: Think of resolution as image quality. As the resolution goes up, the image becomes more clear. It becomes sharper, more defined, and more detailed as well.

Full High Definition (FHD) is the resolution 1920x1080P. Ultra High Definition (UHD) is the resolution 3840x2160P. What this means is that there are more pixels per inch (PPI) in a UHD TV. This gives a higher resolution on the TV. UHD is used on larger TVs so you can sit closer to the TV and still enjoy a crisp, clear picture. Below is a diagram of the different resolutions:
