Samsung CU8072 Review: A highly comprehensive Smart TV

Samsung CU8072 Review

Samsung has gone all out with the Samsung CU8072, a highly comprehensive Smart TV that offers a range of impressive features, which we will delve into in this article.

Design

The Samsung UE43CU8072U represents a significant advancement in television design. Despite not being a top-tier model, it demonstrates a commitment to excellence by paying attention to every detail, with a particular focus on its design.

Pasted

We see very thin frames and a very thin profile, which gives us a more elegant and minimalist appearance. As a stand, it has two legs, but we can also hang it on the wall with the 200 x 200 VESA mount (you have to buy it separately).

We find the connectors on the side of the back, so that we can access them relatively easily.

Connectivity

Speaking of connectors, we find many connectivity options in this model, so we will have a lot of game to use it with external content sources, such as game consoles or hard drives, in addition to also having the necessary components to be able to watch DTT. Not everything is platforms. It also has Bluetooth to be able to transmit our content wirelessly.

As for the way to connect to the internet, we have the option of using wired internet, with Ethernet, or wireless, with WiFi. Given the choice, the best option will always be cable, but it is important to note that if we do not have the option of having an internet outlet nearby, the WiFi connection works very well as well.

Image quality and general features

Let’s now talk about image quality. We have  4K resolution , but we also have certain technologies that are focused on offering the best image results. For example, we can talk about  Dynamic Crystal Color , to have images with purer and more natural colors, as well as realistic.

Also  Contrast Enhancer , for improved depth, as well as  HDR , which will give you all the details of the scene. On the other hand, with  Motion Xcelerator we obtain more fluid and clear movement in our scenes.

Although it is a television with a few inches and a reasonable price, it can be said that it looks very good and that it is an excellent option so that we can enjoy all our content with great quality.

Sound

What can we say about its audio? With a power of  20 W , we really like that it also has some technologies that are designed to improve this section. For example, OTS Lite , which immerses us in the scene thanks to 3D surround sound, as well as  Q-Symphony , which works with the TV and the sound bar for better performance of both. Finally,  Adaptive Sound uses artificial intelligence to adjust the sound to the scene so that everything is perfectly synchronized.

Software analysis / Smart TV and more notable features

Finally, we talk about its operating system. It incorporates  Tizen , which is Samsung’s software and which in turn gives us expanded possibilities to take advantage of our television. We have access to an application store with many options so that we can get the most out of our television. We are not only talking about typical platforms for this type of content, there are also other functionalities that we can take advantage of thanks to the apps that we will find in this store.

In addition, it is worth mentioning that it is compatible with  virtual assistants , such as Bixby, Alexa or Google, but also with SmartThings we will have a “butler” that will allow us to control all our smart devices from the television.

As for energy efficiency, although it is not the best  (G) , it has an  AI Energy Mode to save energy with the television. Likewise, it is very curious to mention that it incorporates  a SolarCell remote control , which eliminates the batteries and instead includes a solar panel on the back. The remote control, as you can see in this image below, is quite modern. It has direct access to Netflix, Prime Video and Disney+, in addition to the internet browser. It also has a microphone button, to directly invoke virtual assistants, as well as the volume button and a button that is used to display the numeric keypad. Perhaps the learning curve of this remote control requires that you spend a few minutes learning how to interact with it, but in any case it is a very good option because as soon as you learn to use it (which is easier than it seems) you will have in your hands a very modern controller with excellent functionality and performance.
