Samsung’s 4K UHD TV: Affordable luxury

Samsung, the global leaders in consumer electronics, with a plethora of excellent review ratings and awards to boot have dominated the home entertainment sub-sector, particularly, the television segment over the course of the last two decades.

It has exhibited consistent commitment to providing next-gen technology at affordable prices in every category (entry-level, mid-range and premium) – case in point is its best-in-class UHD TV launched to cater to the demands of the growing middle class.

What is UHD?

Ultra High Definition (UHD), often referred to as 4K, is a standard of screen display, typically 3,840 x 2,160 pixels, translating to approximately 8 million pixels. Simply put, all other things being equal, the higher the pixel count, the better the picture quality.

The result is better color contrasts – darker blacks and brighter whites – leading to a significantly improved viewing experience. The increased resolution is harder to appreciate on a smaller screen sizes, like those found in smartphones or tablets, hence most UHD televisions have a screen size, measured diagonally, of 50 inches and upwards.

The combination of UHD and HDR makes for a pleasurable viewing experience with pictures seeming to leap off the screen. Furthermore, automatic backlight dimming enhances contrasts, especially when the television is exposed to light.

With an apt understanding of the necessity and benefits of being interconnected, Samsung’s execution of the Smart TV is phenomenal. Setting up is a breeze thanks to Samsung’s intuitive Tizen set-up wizard. If paired with a Samsung phone, the syncing of details occurs automatically.

iPhone users are not left out of the action. Now for the first time ever, you can buy, rent, and watch the latest movies with the new Apple TV app on your Samsung Smart TV.  Furthermore, with AirPlay 2 built in, you can stream or share content from Apple devices to the big screen. Effortlessly play videos, music, photos and more from your iPhone, iPad and Mac on your Samsung UHD TV.

Samsung Cloud ensures you can connect your Samsung smart device to the UHD TV screen to enjoy your photos, videos, and other multimedia content on a large screen.

With 4K and HDR content on platforms such as Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, Apple TV, YouTube, Sony PlayStation Video, Comcast, Google Play, Disney+, as well as BluRay, there’s an overwhelming abundance of content with which to make use of the UHD TV.

Whether for productivity – connecting a Bluetooth keyboard to the television, transforming it into a large monitor for PowerPoint presentations; for video editing or for play – viewing the latest episode of your favorite television series, viewing sporting events live or improving scores in online games, Samsung’s UHD TV is the ideal platform.

The UHD TV comes in two variants: the standard flat screen as well as the curved screen version – which has the added advantage of deeper immersion due to the “wrap around” effect. A testament to the company’s engineering prowess is how well the curve is executed that one can only distinguish the curved from the flat upon closer inspection.

Since internet connectivity is required to utilize the smart features of the television, the question on the minds of many who live in parts of the globe where internet services are expensive and sometimes unreliable, would be “are smart TVs worth it?”, it is against this backdrop that many services providers are beginning to roll out packages to satisfy the needs of high data users, providing high-speed, non-expiring bundles at affordable rates.

The seamless ease of use combined with a superb screen quality and access to the biggest catalogue of online content results in an unparalleled experience. Once again, with its UHD TV, Samsung sets the standard for matching price and a truly immersive experience.
