The TOP 3 of the best Samsung TVs
Among the manufacturers making the TV news, Samsung remains the leader in the field. It’s not the number of models that are missing, but which ones stand out from the catalog?
Before we jump into a list of the best Samsung TVs, there are a few things to know. The Korean manufacturer was the only one not yet to offer OLED on its screens. The brand has developed its own technology which it incorporates little by little. First by the QLED before eventually arriving at the mini LED.
However, the situation is set to change. Indeed, the manufacturer has just launched its range of OLED televisions. The products are equipped with LG technology. Like Sony, the Korean manufacturer has QLED and OLED devices.

What about future Samsung TVs in 2022?
At CES 2022, Samsung made a number of announcements about its future televisions. First, via the new ranges of Micro LED and NEO QLED screens, with some major improvements. The TizenOS software is getting a facelift, to make it easier to navigate. It should also be noted the appearance of the Quantum Matrix technology which offers better brightness management. On the two ranges mentioned, you should have a more intense light. The firm has also revised its sound construction to offer a service close to Dolby Atmos. At the editorial office, we are already looking forward to experiencing them.
These are not the only ranges of televisions to have been spoiled during the American show. The Frame 2022 will have an anti-reflective coating so that they can be easily hidden in the decor of your room. Finally, the Asian firm is starting to take cloud gaming services even more seriously with Stadia and GeForce Now compatibility. The addition of 144Hz refresh, Samsung Gaming Bar 2.0 and controller compatibility for all services are all positive signals to gamers.

Too bad, because in the rest of the services, the Smart TV achieves a real faultless. The panel is perfectly calibrated, offers the most brilliant brightness, with audio quality of the same ilk. It is HDR10 and HDR10+ compatible, which you can take advantage of for watching series, especially on Prime Video. For the moment, no Dolby Vision on the Samsung TV.
Whether for standard use or for gaming, the services delivered are exceptional. Indeed, in its construction the television contains four HDMI 2.1 sockets ideal for connecting new generation consoles.

Still via QLED technology, the South Korean manufacturer offers a very ambitious interface. The QE85QN800A features a mini LED backlight system, Ultra HD 8K definition with HDR 10+ compatibility. It comes in three different sizes: 85, 75 and 65 inches. Samsung TV is one of the few 8K compatible devices available on the market.
The performance offered by QLED TV is always there. The Quantum Dots system displays very beautiful colors and dynamic brightness. The LCD panel does its job perfectly with millimetric contrast management.
This also allows good performance in video games. The Samsung Smart TV contains four HDMI 2.1 sockets to connect one or more consoles.
Be careful all the same with blooming, a common phenomenon on LCD panels. The image will not be completely homogeneous, in particular on the subtitles, but a good management of the brightness parameters will allow an adjustment of the whole.

The range of Samsung Lifestyle TVs to dress up your home

- A beautiful art object
- Its excellent cinema mode
- Easy to install
Available at €1,490 on Baker
Samsung’s philosophy on its televisions has also evolved in terms of design. The Frame TVs are a design concept where the product strongly resembles a painting. In terms of display, the Smart TV offers QLED technology, a 4K display, HDR 10+ and Dolby Digital Plus compatibility. The brightness is once again one of the strong points of the television, even if the cinema mode is to be preferred despite the video game part.
The real highlight of the TV obviously lies in its construction. Two installations are allowed with this model. Either by means of a tripod, otherwise fixed to a wall thanks to the installation kit provided within the box. The connection with the One Connect box is discreet via a translucent wire. Finally, the Tizen OS operating system is still just as efficient with a wide range of features implemented.
Among the weaknesses of The Frame TV, it is impossible to miss an image quality that can still be improved, but above all its high consumption. When the television is in table mode, it consumes as much as during a movie. A thorn in the side of those who want to highlight the decoration of their room.
In terms of versions, The Frame offers 7 different diagonals ranging from 43 to 85 inches. The price varies between 1099 euros and 4499 euros.
Samsung LED TVs: low price

This starts with a slim design, capable of integrating without the slightest problem into a dedicated piece of furniture. The manufacturer offers 7 different diagonals ranging from 43 to 85 inches according to your desires and your needs.
As mentioned above, the Crystal model implements LED display technology with its advantages, but also its disadvantages. Understand, when it comes to content lighting, the TV will meet all your expectations. In the technical characteristics section, the panel has a 4K resolution, a refresh rate of 50 Hz and compatible with HDR 10+.
You will still regret a perfectible contrast ratio, but above all the effects of persistence. The Samsung Crystal UHD 55AU8075 remains a high quality device, perfect for those who do not want to invest heavily.
The price of the television starts from 649 euros for its 43-inch version up to 2499 euros with its 85-inch version.
How to choose a Samsung TV?
What is the difference between QLED and OLED?
As mentioned above, for its televisions Samsung uses QLED technology. At a time when the global market has moved to OLED, the Korean manufacturer is developing its own technology using the Mini LED. In terms of advantages, you will benefit from higher brightness, better consumption, but above all more ranges. As you can see, the brand allows itself to offer TVs ranging from 55 to 85 inches. You will have to make some concessions such as a less pronounced contrast. Above all, the responsiveness of the television is perhaps less optimal than the competition. However, Samsung was able to prove us the opposite.
If you are looking for a particular display technology, here are our picks:
What is Mini LED?
For its QLED televisions, Samsung has chosen to rely on Mini LED technology. Within its televisions, the Asian manufacturer is always pushing technology further to offer you quality services. In concrete terms, several thousand Mini LED electrodes are placed on the slab in order to offer you all the advantages mentioned above. Indeed, smaller and more numerous than conventional LEDs, they emit more light. You will also be entitled to a high level HDR to adapt the brightness according to the situation.
What are the criteria to look at?
First of all, the screen size depends on your budget. The higher the diagonal, the higher the price of the Samsung TV. It is also necessary to look at certifications such as HDR or Dolby Vision. This will allow you to make the most of your gaming sessions or watching series. Of course, the definition is also important and especially the connections put in place.
Which range of Samsung TV to choose?
As you have seen in our guide, the Korean manufacturer offers several models in its catalog. Buying a Samsung television first means making a choice between quality, price and lifestyle. The range of resolutions is very often qualitative, but expensive. Here is an overview of the existing categories:
- Neo QLED
- Crystal UHD
The Asian firm also offers a component called Lifestyle where Smart TVs, outdoor televisions and video projectors intersect. You will find the following references there:
- The Frame
- The Serif
- The Sero
- The Terrace
- The Premiere
