4.3 VOTES: 35 TECHWEEK

Lately Samsung has expanded its catalog of televisions and now gives us better equipment for the mid-range, which add better features that can be enough to meet the expectations of almost any user. Today we will focus our analysis on a very attractive TV such as the Samsung TU8002.

Exterior design of the Samsung TU8002

We find an interesting design that stands out mainly for giving us a slim style

Normally the models of this firm stand out for offering interesting designs regardless of the cost or the range we are talking about. In this case it was no exception and we found a good appearance that in our opinion fits quite well with any environment. In addition, it offers us a good size for medium-sized rooms .

Among the most noteworthy we note that its front has thin bezels that generate greater elegance and presence, likewise, allow the useful space on the screen to be much greater. The back has a fine look that we love because it gives us a clean build . Undoubtedly, aesthetics is a positive point.

Connectivity

We are given the indispensable connectors that we can use for different activities. Here we find three HDMI 2.0 inputs that we can use to connect external devices such as laptops, consoles and video players. We are also offered two USB 2.0 with the possibility to reproduce and record content. In the table above you can find the remaining connections. At the wireless level we have Wi-Fi , Bluetooth and DLNA .

Image quality and functions in general

Thanks to its Crystal 4K processor, the Samsung UE55TU8002K will show us a powerful image quality, especially in matters of movement, that is, we will have quite fluid scenes that will have a considerable noise reduction. The contrast is also benefited and we will see it in a sharper state .

It may be that the biggest problem found is that its panel is LED and this gives us a slightly weak backlight, especially if we place the TV in very dark or bright areas. Therefore, the placement will take more importance. We emphasize that it includes support for HDR that increases the level of expression for better colors and details.

Sound

Its audio quality is not entirely positive, and we say this because we have noticed certain problems when listening to more demanding content. Of course, some improvement technologies are included such as Adaptive Sound and Dolby Digital Plus that seek to give us a more immersive experience, however, their 20W are still a difficulty.

The performance that your system gives us is quite good and offers us excellent functions for your entertainment

Finally, we must talk about Tizen, the system that the Samsung UE55TU8002K has , since it seems to us one of the best for its optimization and security. As if that were not enough, it gives us an interesting application catalog that adds the most popular options of the moment such as Netflix , HBO , Prime Video and Disney + .

It has compatibility with other applications that are also quite useful, for example, it has Google Assistant and Alexa that allow us to control certain functions using our voice. In case you want to transmit content from an iPhone or iPad, we have Apple AirPlay 2 that offers us this possibility with excellent performance.

Another television that has left us good feelings is the Samsung UE55AU7175UXXC that gives us various features that make it a very careful television.
