Samsung is an incredible firm that has been delivering excellent televisions for years, obviously it has also been wrong with several models, which allows them to try to improve on the new equipment that is coming out. The mid-range is considered by many to be the best, since it offers us interesting features for a more affordable price. The Samsung Q65A seems to us to be an interesting option to analyze due to the functions that it apparently has, therefore, we invite you to stay and learn about the advantages and disadvantages that it includes.

Exterior design of the Samsung Q65A

Among the most attractive of this television we have a well-crafted design that stands out for its slim style

From now on you should know that the Samsung QE50Q65A stands out for its appearance, which we have already seen in other models and will surely be maintained in the following ones, since it is one of the best aesthetics within the mid-range. In fact, it offers a good view in any environment .

This time we have the 50-inch version that includes an ideal size for both medium and large rooms or halls. We recommend you purchase the VESA support so that you can enjoy a better installation, especially if we want to place it directly on the wall.

Which we also recommend, since this is how we are going to enjoy its front that seems interesting to us due to the thin bezels that it implements, which generate a more elegant environment , likewise, we have a black chassis that seeks to deliver a better presence.

We do not get a minimalist style, however, we do have a nice TV . Something that also helps is the rear that, unlike other models, does not include bulky spaces, in fact, it offers a slim appearance that ends up benefiting the design completely.

Connectivity

The connectivity of the Samsung 50Q65A is not that complex, in fact, only the necessary ports are integrated for a good experience. We are talking about three HDMI that we can use to connect computers, laptops, consoles and players with the idea of ​​transmitting their signal.

We also find two USB 2.0 that in our case we usually use to play content from flash drives or hard drives. Although they also include the possibility of recording directly from the television. Other physical connections are its audio line out and headphone jack .

This TV has compatibility with DVB-T2/C/S2 tuners for a good experience when scanning both terrestrial and digital channels. At a wireless level there will be no problem, since we have excellent options such as Wi-Fi Direct and Bluetooth .

Image quality and functions in general of the Samsung QE50Q65A

It’s time to talk about the image delivered by the Samsung QE50Q65AAUXXC , which we consider acceptable due to the optimization it includes. First of all, we have a 4K resolution that, due to its power, tries to offer better details that achieve more realistic images.

Another interesting detail is that it has a QLED panel that, unlike others, offers more visually attractive improvements, for example, it provides purer colors almost entirely, therefore, we are going to enjoy vivid and intense scenes with less saturation.

We must also point out that the brightness is higher, therefore, the lighting of the room will not be a problem . One benefit we quite like is that it offers better viewing angles. However, there will be disadvantages and the main one is in the blacks that do not become pure.

This is because QLED technology depends on the intensity of the light, so it is a detail to take into account. The reality is that not many enhancement technologies are included. We’re only going to have support for HDR10 and HLG which kick in with certain content.

Sound

The audio won’t be great either, in fact, we have the normal power that is usually offered in this category. Here we have two integrated speakers that together transmit 20W, which seems sufficient for certain content , however, in the most demanding it will be a duty. However, it offers Dolby Digital Plus technology that tries to provide a more immersive, clean and clear experience at the same time.

Software analysis / Smart TV and more notable features of the Samsung 50Q65A

It has a very complete system that stands out mainly for the optimization and security that it offers us

One of the strong points of the Samsung QE50Q65A is in the system it includes, which is typical of the brand and is based on Linux, therefore, we will enjoy better optimization and security. In addition, it includes an extensive catalog of applications that offers the most popular options.

Likewise, it works with Google Assistant , Alexa and Bixby , three voice assistants that allow us to control certain functions without necessarily having to use the remote. The Tizen system also has exclusive technologies that will only work with these televisions.

The Samsung 50Q65A offers us other interesting features such as automatic shutdown, likewise, it has teletext functions, subtitles and Eco sensor. As if that weren’t enough, it includes a game mode that improves the experience in movements and precision, especially in action games.
