They’re the best selling brand of TV worldwide, but do Samsung make the best TV’s?
While this fact alone doesn’t necessarily answer whether or not the South Korean giant makes the best TVs or not, it does certainly give an indication of how Samsung has built a reputation for quality and customer satisfaction throughout the years with it’s TV sets.
At the moment, Samsung primarily produces LED TVs (LCD TVs with LED backlighting) – LED screens are backlit by light emitting diodes (LED’s) which sit directly behind the screen and allow for what is known as localized dimming.
This means that the picture can simultaneously look bright in the areas it’s meant to and very dark in other areas on the same picture where it’s also meant to. This creates life-like contrast where the whites look bright and the blacks are true blacks and not discolored or faded.
Sharp contrast is one of the main things you’re going to want to consider when purchasing a new TV set, and Samsung’s certainly do make some of the best TVs when it comes to this.
Another of the reasons why Samsung TV sets could be considered the best out there is because of the vast variety of LED sets that Samsung offers.
It certainly could be argued that they make the best quality TVs over a wide range – Samsung makes 48 inch LED sets, like the UN48J5100, for just over £300 and other 55” Ultra HD and 4K sets that are cutting edge, like the JU6500, from under £900.
Sure, you might be able to find an off-brand TV that undercuts Samsung’s prices at either end of the scale, but then it’s always going to be a tradeoff.
The off-brand television set might be equal to Samsung’s as far as picture and sound quality, but then what about the extras like Samsung Smart TV or its Tizen OS?
Both of these features make a Samsung TV the best choice for someone who is already a Samsung phone or tablet owner.
If that’s you, then the benefits of an operating system you’re familiar with as well as the ease of compatibility between your phone and your Samsung TV probably outweigh the money you might save on another set.
But even if you don’t already own a Samsung device, Samsung’s Smart TV is certainly one of the best internet-based smart-TV services there is, thanks to its broad range of apps of including: BBC iPlayer, Amazon instant Video, Netflix, Facebook, Twitter, and more.
A Samsung TV is also a great option for those looking for something a little more fun than a standard LED TV.
Back in 2010, Samsung were the first to get into the 3D business, and now to this day their 3D TVs are some of the best on the market.
More recently Samsung has shown a continued desire to stay at the forefront of innovative TVs with the Samsung’s 65” UN65JU7500FXZA, which is on the cutting edge of both curved screens an Ultra HD/4K technology.
The idea behind the curved screen, which curves in not out, is that every part of the screen is an equal distance from your eye, meaning that the picture’s scale is truer and more pleasing to the eye.
While Samsung still produce primarily LED TVs, they’re also investing heavily in curved screens, internet-based TV, Ultra HD, and 4K sets too – which at 4x the definition of regular HD is arguably the future of TV sets.
Samsung have and will continue to be on the cutting edge of TV sets and whether or not you have the budget to invest in one of Samsung’s higher-end sets, by getting a Samsung Smart TV you’re still going to benefit from continued improvement of Tizen OS as well as seamless use with your Samsung phone.
So, do Samsung make the best TVs? Ultimately, whether or not Samsung makes the best TVs is always going to be relative to your needs, but there are good reasons why you should consider a Samsung TV first when you’re buying a new TV set.
