Samsung QN800A Review: A powerful beast you can’t live without

Samsung QN800A
TOTAL SCORE:

We all know that if we want to ensure almost 95% the quality of a television, we must talk about that Samsung offers us excellent models for all types of users. However, this time we are going to talk about the most powerful that we can find today. And we refer more specifically to the Samsung QN800A .

It has several of the most advanced technologies, therefore its performance is one of the best. Well at least that is what they want us to believe, and we say this because that is precisely why we are going to do this analysis to discover if the Samsung QN800A is really worth as much as it is said or also has its negative points.

Exterior design of the Samsung QN800A

We are given a totally beautiful aesthetic that includes different details

If they have done something well with the Samsung QN800A it is to give it a beautiful aesthetic that will look perfectly in any position and environment. In addition, it is presented in its 65-inch model that is perfect to place it in rooms or large rooms, and the best of all is that it will combine perfectly with the environment where it is .

Among the most spectacular at the design level, we find that its front part offers us really thin bezels that translate into a brutal elegance for the television, likewise, this aspect allows us to enjoy content in better dimensions , since the useful space screen is larger and playback is free of interference.

If we see it from the side we can see that it has a completely fine style that gives the impression of a flat screen in its entirety. The back part shows a minimalist elaboration that starts from the order and cleanliness that it generates . Another valuable detail is that the construction materials offered are of high quality and we have a sturdy TV.

Connectivity

It was to be expected that a team like this would include the best connectors, and in that sense we find four HDMI inputs , where we highlight that one is version 2.1, therefore, we will receive greater benefits when using it. Likewise, three USB 2.0 ports are equipped , unfortunately one is not offered in 3.0, and that could be considered a negative . Through this connection we have the possibility of recording content from the television.

We are going to have other connections that are not as relevant as those already mentioned, but they can be useful at certain times. Here we highlight having an Ethernet port, a satellite input, a digital audio output and an RF antenna. The available tuners are also varied and you can find them in the table above. In the wireless there will be no problem and we will enjoy the best with its Wi-Fi , Bluetooth 5.2 and DLNA .

Image quality and general functions of the Samsung QN800A

As is well known from the title, the Samsung QN800A presents us with the incredible 8K resolution that offers four times more power than that seen in 4K, therefore, the clarity of the details can be unmatched , yes, we must take into account Note that there is not much content that will fully exploit the definition presented.

It has a Mini LED panel that transmits the necessary power to receive an acceptable backlight, which does not lose its capacity when we are in very dark or bright environments . As if that were not enough, we are going to have different technologies that will end up being a great help to receive the highest possible quality.

One of the interesting things to know is Quantum Dot that offers us a 100% color reproduction, that is, the colors will be seen in a more natural state . Since most of the content will be less than 8K, you should know that it has AI Upscaling that will try to increase this to receive a resolution close to what this television offers us.

The reality is that there is a remarkable variety of functions, and we do not think it is necessary to talk about each one, since several do a similar job. What you should know is that these technologies focus on the main parameters such as color , contrast , brightness and movements to receive the best experience without any loss.

Sound

Image quality like this deserves to have a spectacular sound that is enough to cover all our needs. In this case, its speakers offer a total power of 70W that alone seems sufficient for any content, however, and to our surprise there are a large number of technologies .

And we are not lying when saying this, in fact, you can receive in the specification table all that are included. With this we achieve an almost perfect sound that gives us a totally immersive and clean experience. That allows us to hear the dialogues with great clarity without losing precision . In addition, the audio is broadcast throughout the room.

We get one of the safest and most optimized systems today

The Samsung QN800A implements the latest version of the Tizen system that is developed based on Linux, therefore, it will have better optimization and security. In addition, it includes a somewhat extensive catalog of applications that adds the most popular options of today such as Netflix , Prime Video , YouTube , Disney + and Apple TV .

Another benefit that we receive is that we will have up to three virtual assistants such as Google Assistant , Amazon Alexa and Bixby to be able to control certain actions without the need to use the remote, since it is achieved through voice. With Apple AirPlay 2 we can stream videos, photos and music from an iPhone, iPad or Mac.

As if that were not enough, the Samsung 65QN800A is perfect if we want to enjoy gaming, and that is because it integrates AMD FreeSync Premium and Game Motion Plus that will give us an immediate response no matter what game it is. Other functions that we also highlight is that it includes Samsung Health , SmartThing , Tap View and TV Plus .
