Smartphones in conjunction with TVs

I'm looking for a new TV and phone at the moment. Is there any benefit in sticking with the one brand? Can Samsung/LG smartphones do anything fancy with Samsung/LG TVs? I'm guessing you can the use the phone as a remote, for example?

Most new TVs have an app for control that works on any brand of phone.
LG, Samsung & Sony all have apps on Play Store that work on any phone.

As far as I can think there's no real reason to stick to one brand for both devices.

I use my Note 2 to control my Sony Bravia W7, so there seems little point with sticking with the same manufacturer for both, just download the relevant app from the Play Store/App Store.
