The QE55Q80A — the 55-inch (140 cm) version of the Samsung QE65Q80A we tested — is the newest of the Samsung televisions equipped with a Full-Led backlight system. Can it still compete with Neo Qled models equipped with Mini-Led and with Oled televisions? That’s what we’re going to see in this test…
The Samsung Qled QE55Q80A — 55-inch (140 cm) version of the Samsung QE65Q80A that we tested — is a good LCD TV, but it suffers from a few minor flaws such as a perfectible HDR calibration, reduced viewing angles and a decent anti-reflective filter of an entry-level television – which is however a reference on more high-end Samsung televisions. Currently, there is still a good alternative to the more expensive 65-inch Oled televisions. With its HDMI 2.1 4K 120 Hz compatibility, VRR and its responsive 100 Hz panel, it even turns out to be an interesting choice for players who still doubt the reliability of Oled over the long term.
- Native contrast.
- Interesting luminosity peak.
- From 100 Hz.
- HDMI 2.1 compatibility (only one HDMI input)
- Remote control with battery and solar panel.
- Calibration perfectible in HDR and in game mode.
- Viewing angles.
- Visible blooming (only 48 backlight zones).
- Where did the anti-reflective filter go from last year’s Q80R/Q85R?
NB: The reported price drop is calculated by comparing the lowest price of the day with the average price observed for the product last month, with security rules to exclude prices from shops whose VAT policy does not is not clear (say “grey” shops, typically in the case of imports from China).
If it is perfectly calibrated, the LG 48A1 Oled TV – 48-inch (122 cm) version of the LG 55A1 that we tested – makes a few too many concessions to stand out. It is thus necessary to be satisfied with a peak of brightness lower than that of other OLED televisions and also with a less efficient motion compensation engine, handicapped by the 50/60 Hz panel. It also ignores HDMI 2.1 4K 120 Hz and VRR, two essential features to get the most out of new game consoles. However, it remains an overall good television for films, series and even for the previous generation of consoles (PS4, Xbox One).
