Samsung’s QLED TV series is the flagship equivalent of a Smart TV. Although they are more expensive, Samsung’s QLED TVs often include the best display technology, software and hardware, which are optimized to give buyers the ultimate TV experience. The new Q95B, sent to us for review by Samsung, is one of the new models in the series, slimmer and better than its predecessor. We decided to test the 55-inch model of the series, and here’s what we think after using the TV for almost a month.
Samsung Neo QLED QN95B: What’s good?
The good points of the Samsung Neo QLED QN95B start with the design. It’s an almost all-screen experience with really thin bezels. The TV has a gorgeous look and feel from every angle. It looks flat when mounted on a wall, and even on a tabletop, the Infinity One Design stand makes the TV appear to float in mid-air.
The main part of the TV does not have a large back or port. But what do you have? Samsung Called the OneConnect Box, it’s a separate small box that can be placed on the back of the stand (when in desktop display mode) or next to the player/game console and other accessories when the TV is on the wall. installed. This keeps all cable clutter away from the back or sides of the TV. This solution offers a cleaner look, while simplifying cabling, which is especially useful when mounted on a wall.
Samsung also has a SolarCell remote that doesn’t require a battery and can be charged using the interior lighting, but still has a USB-C port at the bottom, which we’re guessing can be used in emergencies. Fortunately, we never had to use it. There are dedicated keys for popular OTT destinations like Netflix, Prime Video, Disney+ Hotstar and Samsung’s own TV Plus app.
The screen is amazing. It can be as bright as you want it to be, with vivid colors and lots of software-based tweaks that allow you to customize the image output to your liking. No complaints here. It’s also a mini-LED TV, which allows for a better contrast ratio, which you’ll notice almost immediately.
This is complemented by features like 144Hz VRR (variable refresh rate), which makes the TV ideal for PC or console gaming. There are features like Samsung TV Plus, which only requires a WiFi connection and allows you to watch a growing list of live TV channels for free without additional registration or subscription, as well as a Multi-View mode that allows you to watch two video outputs together. . I didn’t use either a lot, but considering the price of this TV, it’s good to have so many options at your disposal.
There are also plenty of sound options, and the TV comes with a multi-directional sound output on the back, which gives you a sense of direction in the sound output when you’re watching supported content. There are also neat features that let you take it to another level. For example, if you have a Q-series soundbar to go with your TV, you can play the built-in speakers and soundbar for a more synchronized and richer experience.
Samsung Neo QLED QN95B: What’s not so good?
The Samsung QN95B doesn’t go wrong with the premium experience it offers. However, if you are coming from one of the many other disciplines, there is a learning curve Android– based smart TV. Samsung uses its own operating system and the user interface is not similar to Android, so you may not be able to search for things like the App Store at first or scroll through your favorite app icons on the home screen.
Searching for and installing new apps is, in my opinion, a more tedious process compared to standard Android TV. Some of the things here took longer than usual for my tech-savvy parents to get used to. However, these are not deal breakers and should not be a problem with timing.
Verdict: Is the Samsung Neo QLED QN95B Right for You?
Let’s address the elephant in the room – the Rs 2,54,900 Samsung Neo QLED QN95B is not for everyone. The market for 4K TVs these days starts at under Rs 1 lakh, and even if you’re looking for something packed with high refresh rates and other features, you can get options like the TCL C825 for less than half that price. behemoth.
However, the Samsung QLED series is the best in the segment and it’s overall experience. The QN95B delivers on almost every front, from its excellent display to its built-in software features and battery-free controls to its focus on aesthetics and connectivity. You can also get Samsung’s reliable reputation and service, which covers, for example, a burn-in-free screen for 10 years from the date of purchase.
I’d say the Samsung QN95B QLED 4K TV is for those who want to spend the extra money on a long-term, premium, no-compromise investment. It’s an even better deal if you can take full advantage of what’s available here, like pairing a TV with a console and using a Samsung smartphone with Multi-View. If these use cases suit your needs, this is one of the best options to consider for the price. If you want something larger than 55 inches, there is also a 65-inch variant priced at Rs 3,49,900.
