Other Brands – How Samsung Stacks up Against the Competition

Despite Samsung’s current pre-eminence in the TV market, its competitors are fighting back with features of their own. Against fast-rising Vizio, Samsung is rated higher in screen size, display technology, display resolution, image quality, audio quality, smart TV options and physical size but losing ground to Vizio in terms of ports and pricing. Against other brands including LG, Sony and Panasonic, the Samsung brand still stands out with its reputation for high image quality and Tizen powered Smart TV features. In the price wars, Samsung is also losing the price battle as it maintains an average to high price range in comparison with the lower priced Vizio and Panasonic.

They delivered HDR content to the users along with stunning visuals. The people who walked into the booth were also impressed by the all-around designs of the televisions. Samsung has paid attention to detail when designing these TVs to deliver a unique experience to their customers. The gravity TV stands, optical cable features and striking easel are some features to prove the above mentioned fact.

Q Picture

As mentioned earlier, the Samsung QLED TVs are in a position to give life to real like pictures through Q picture technology. This has been achieved by upgrading the quantum dots. This has increased energy efficiency and durability of these televisions as well. At CSE 2017, guests were provided with the opportunity to compare the purity of colors by displaying live video obtained from a nearby HDR camera. In addition, a moving display was mounted to one of the walls inside Samsung booth. This gave life to a 45 degree side to side show. People were excited to see how the same picture quality is offered from different viewing angels. Guests were also allowed to experience how the amplified brightness levels delivered from QLED televisions would look like. In fact, it is in a position to deliver a realistic experience for the people who use the television to play games, watch live TV or enjoy movies. They also had a 8K television in the booth.

Q Smart

With the introduction of QLED televisions, Samsung has also delivered some exciting improvements to the smart hub. Q smart technology is smart enough to figure out the preferences of users and provide them with personal recommendations. For example, a sports fan using one of these QLED televisions would never miss his favorite games.

Q Style

Optical cables are in a position to create a tremendous impact on the picture quality offered by televisions. People were able to experience it with the Q Style technology at the Samsung booth. In fact, Samsung delivered before and after scenes using a rotating stage, which helped people to get a clear understanding about the difference in between them.

2016 Lineup

Most of the 15 TV series introduced by Samsung in 2016 are backed by the HDR technology and feature the Ultra HD 4K resolution. It does not end there as its Super UHD (SUHD) TVs use the groundbreaking cadmium-free, 10-bit Quantum dot display technology to give consumers uncommon, real-life picture quality. Used to bezels on TVs? None appears on Samsung’s 2016 TVs as its curved design gains more popularity. Refocusing the TV as center of the home has also been made possible with its adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT) hub technology enabling the TV to become the controller for the smart home. If you are a big fan of 3D, expect to be disappointed as the brand is phasing out 3D TVs in favor of its newer 4K HDR models.

Let us browse you thru our Samsung TV series reviews and help to choose the best TV models of 2016.
