Samsung Q8C QLED TV (QE55Q8C) Smart TV Overview
Samsung’s huge TV story for 2017 is QLED which, for Samsung’s situation, alludes to TVs that make their hues utilizing Quantum Dots encased in another metallic packaging.
This empowers them to be worked harder than ordinary Quantum Dots, with the goal that they can steadily yield more splendor and a more extensive scope of hues. All of which makes its new QLED sets –, for example, the 55-inch Q8C under investigation here – possibly incredible companions to the high unique range and wide shading extent innovations now making their stamp in the AV world.
Samsung’s leader Q9F QLED TV got the arrangement off to an entirely amazing begin. Be that as it may, can QLED still measure up on a considerably more moderate TV, for example, the Q8C?
Notwithstanding having the same QLED innovation at its heart, the £3,000/$3,200 55-inch Q8C appears to be exceptionally unique to its Q9F more established sibling. First off, it has a bended screen, demonstrating that Samsung hasn’t gone all level on us right now.
It’s likewise significantly slimmer, appreciates a lighter metallic edge complete, and sits airily on a satisfying silver bar-sort desktop stand that conveys a delicate bend to coordinate the state of the screen.
While we by and by hold a (possibly compassionate) fire for the chunkier plan of the Q9F, the Q8C is unquestionably better looking. What’s more, whatever your emotions about the quality upsides and downsides of a bended screen, there’s most likely that it causes the Q8C to be one of the year’s prettiest TVs.
After a couple of false begins once again the years, Samsung is truly beginning to get the hang of this Smart TV thing. First off, the Q8C brags a splendidly straightforward and viable voice control framework that never again expects you to take in a radical better approach for talking or long successions of summons – practically every component on the TV (even a portion of the specialized alignment instruments) can be gotten to and balanced by trying to say a few words.
Subsequently, the Q8C’s voice charge framework is the first on a brilliant TV that we’ve utilized just in light of the fact that we needed to, as opposed to in light of the fact that we needed to.
As a matter of fact, however, the most recent emphasis of Samsung’s Tizen-based Eden shrewd stage is a greater amount of an advancement from 2016 as opposed to an upset.
In any case, that is fine, as it sees Samsung proceeding to move relentlessly the correct way with a two-layer symbol framework that conveys four of our most loved Smart interface components: temperate utilization of screen space; quick access to bunches of substance alternatives; a lot of simple to accomplish customisation; and expedient, smooth reaction times. With everything taken into account, not an awful year for Tizen.
The numerous online administrations accessible through Eden incorporate Amazon Video and Netflix (both with 4K and HDR bolster), in addition to the BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, All4 and My5 make up for lost time TV administrations for those living in the UK.
While the Q8C is actually made for HDR and 4K playback, it’s genuinely refined with HD and standard dynamic range content, as well.
Samsung’s Q8C QLED screens really gives you a chance to watch HD SDR content in two ways: utilizing the substance’s “local” shading and shine esteems, or increase to something moving toward high unique range civility of Samsung’s HDR+ handling framework.
In local shape, SDR pictures consolidate extraordinary dark levels and wonderfully point by point, common shading tones. The amazingly profound dark levels are especially satisfying considering we’re managing here with a TV that utilizations edge-mounted LED lights to enlighten its photos. It’s not quite recently the profundity of dark shading that awes, either; there’s additionally an extremely respectable measure of unobtrusive light and shading point of interest held in the darkest regions, and scarcely any indication of the kind of backdrop illumination obfuscating or striping that so frequently influences edge lit TVs.
Hues emerge against the profound dark establishment with genuine energy and expert, and there’s so much inconspicuous exactness in the way shading mixes and negligible tonal movements are dealt with that you abruptly recollect exactly how great SDR video can look when it’s done well.
Generally, the local SDR pictures look splendid and brimming with differentiate even without the HDR+ framework in play, while Samsung’s HD-to-UHD upscaling framework ends up being truly outstanding around.
That being stated, the HDR+ highlight for making SDR sources look like HDR won’t be to everybody’s taste, as it totally changes the luminance and shading esteems relegated to the source content when it was made. HDR+ is likewise effortlessly the most forceful HDR “update” framework we’ve seen up until this point, in wording both of the measure of additional luminance it infuses and the degree to which it grows the shading range. Thus it once in a while goes ahead excessively solid, causing issues, for example, an abruptly constrained looking shading tone, an over-prevailing pinnacle white, or a fleeting burst of restricted video clamor. The HDR+ framework can likewise cause some vertical light striping from the backdrop illumination around emerge splendid items.
In spite of this, however, the consequences of HDR+ by and large are sufficiently great to influence numerous Q8C proprietors to utilize it – at any rate when watching run of the mill communicate TV content.
