It's really awesome
Be it a phone panel or a TV panel, Samsung is a master at creating mind blowing displays which output picture quality of the highest order! Writing this review after having used it for over 2 months. DesignSoundDisplay: This is more than just a TV. It is a style statement. For those who want more than just a black panel to view content in. It is as functional with the display off as it is with the display on. The Serif is in a class of its own. The form factor from the side is identical to the letter I in Serif fontlook it up which is where it takes its name from. The TV top is good enough to act as a mantle piece while housing the NFC capabilities. It is elegant with and without the provided easel stand. And the sound output is way above average 4ch. and 40 W rather than the standard 2ch 20W on most high end TVs . The screen is QLED of course and my god is it a joy to behold and a sight for sore eyespun intended. PQI of 2900 should be an indicator of the capabilities of this display. It is vibrant and punchy with 100% color volume another spectacular feature. Support for HDR 10+ and other standards HDR, HLG is bang on. Content just pops. For those wondering about Dolby Vision, no it is not certified as Samsung pushes its own HDR 10+ standard to gain prominence. And frankly I don't mind it if the result is this good. I don't need a certification for the sake of it as is the case in most low to medium budget TVs. Only a brightness of 1000 nits plus will begin to give any measurable benefit of Dolby Vision which is not the case in most TVs250-400nits. But if it is a concern for you, then it is a point to note. AI Upscaling is on point. 720p1080p content is optimized amazingly well. For STB, would suggest to have HD channel subscription to realize the full benefit of this display. SD content is not bad but it is not what you will pay all this money for. ConnectivityAdditional Features Connectivity options are aplenty Optical, HDMI, ARC, eARC, USB...just name it. Dual band Wi-Fi support. All popular OTT apps. All bases covered. Additional features such as Ambient Display with myriad of customization are good to have and turns the TV to a home decor rather than a plain black glass slab when not in use. Intelligent Mode tunes the input and provides optimum output wrt both sound and picture. Honestly, i have put this mode on and have never felt the need to modify the picture or sound mode for STB or OTT content. Active Voice Amplifier is handy and boosts the output noticeably for when you want it. Tap to Pair phone via NFC is a first and very handy for when needed. Screen Cast works well as well with option to have it as a multi window with TV content. MissingCould be better Features: The HDMI connectivity with my Sony 5.1 HT via ARC is slightly buggy and needed some understanding of how to make it work. It turns out that it is a known issue which Samsung has done nothing to fix seemingly. It works once you have figured out the trick quite simple really but one need not have to do this if you are paying a premium Optical works flawlessly, however. PS: Plan to add a Samsung Atmos HW QT800 soundbar to get full use out of eARC and also see if the issue exists due to brand compatibility. Will Update. Dolby Vision missing maybe an issue for some not for me, ready review above. However, not supporting Dolby Atmos is a bummer. It support Dolby Digital decoding and works well with the TV as well as my HT with distinct sound separation. Final Thoughts: This is my first premium TV. I went for it over many others such as LG NanoCell, Sony Bravia and even Samsung's own the Frame. And i have been EXTREMELY happy with the decision! Watching HDR content on Netflix has been a revelation. Even the HD channels on STB are immensely watchable. If you want an out of the ordinary addition to your home, go for it. Period.
Amazing picture and sound quality
An absolute beauty ...Both on screen and off screen !!
REALLY GOOD PRODUCT IN QUALITY, CLARITY, SOUND ETC... WORTH FOR THE MONEY PAID
Here is my review : Started with searching for a QLED TV, then I found this as one of the option in amazon. I thought it’s really pricy during the purchase. Then I gave a shot of getting this as I’m not planning for TV unit in my house. I was in bad impression after I booked the product like I’m spending huge money for TV with 0 reviews in amazon. Once I recieved the product ., I started loving it with looks., once I’ve assembled everything and it’s perfectly fit to my house and best standards . I’ve ordered 49 inch and loving the TV. It has best quality of display and easy navigation, good picture clarity , easy to setup, hide all the wires in back ., no need for TV unit. I loved the product - only con I see is bit more price
It looks good and different . Better than monotonous led tv nowadays. It has got some kool features.
I love the display quality and sound features are terrific. Just the issue is tizen as more apps are available on android. Samsung needs to boot up its App Store to match android to make it more standard option to choose.
-The stylish design is the perfect addition to any modern interior. -Thanks to Ambient Mode, there's never a black screen in your room. -Via NFC, you can quickly and easily stream music from a smartphone to the TV. -Thanks to the QLED screen, the TV displays better images than the first The Serif TVs.
Samsung has made possibly the most gorgeous TV! The Serif blends beautifully in the room. Design is clean and classy all around. The matte white “I” shaped bezel gives it great presence and doesn’t look like a black rectangular patch hanging on the wall. Picture quality is stunning, 4k upscaling is incredible, beautiful “ambient modes” and the sound is very good. If you don’t want the legs then you can simply place on a shelf. I highly recommend this TV to anyone who appreciates high quality design and technology!
