Question £500 on 48" HD tv or £700 on 48"-50" 4K tv??

Hi guys i had my head set on buying the Samsung 48H6400 about 6 months ago after ready very good reviews on here but a few things happened which delayed me getting around to it.
Now im ready to buy again i can see after a quick read that the prices of 4K sets have dropped fairly so my question is:

Samsung H6400 48" for <£500

OR 1 of the following all 4K and under £700 from John Lewis (want to buy from here for the 5 yr warranty...)

Samsung UE48JU6400 LED 4K Ultra HD Smart TV 48" - £699
Sony Bravia KD49X8005 4K Ultra HD LED Android TV 49" - £699
Panasonic Viera TX-50CX680B LED 4K Ultra TV 50" - £699

i was tempted just to buy the older 48" 1080 HD Samsung H6400 but if the 4K sets are better then makes sense to spend the extra now while im upgrading anyway...

thanks, Jamie

You might get over a hundred views and no replies if you have the same luck as me lol.
Those 4k TV's you listed would be the ones I would short list too..but also consider the panny CX700
