The check of Samsung QN55Q6F vs 55NU8500 has been done to compare two entry-level Samsung models of Q6F (2017) and NU8500 (2018) respectively in order to clarify the reasons for a higher price for a last-year TV.
Samsung QN55Q6F has Quantum Dots to wider the color spectrum (the common LCD TVs can reach up to 30% of the color spectrum the humans can perceive). Samsung 55NU8500 uses Dynamic Crystal Color to widen a range of colors and their shades.
Both TVs can stream 4K HDR content and upscale other videos up to this advanced format. Samsung QN55Q6F produces deep contrast and makes the colors bright and immersive. The picture is smooth and natural even if you are very close to this TV. Samsung 55NU8500 let enjoy the crisp picture in any video format. However, the TVs’ VA type of screen narrows the viewing angle that makes picture quality degrade at an angle.

However, 55NU8500’s blacks are deep as well but some reflections are visible. The model QN55Q6F has a variable refresh rate to proceed with 1080p content in the best way. Besides, it supports Chroma 4:4:4 that makes this TV a great replacement for a PC monitor.
Both TVs have local dimming, but 55NU8500 doesn’t dim areas of the screen effectively because of the edge LED backlight tech. 55NU8500 has a great motion handling and a very short time response to enjoy fast-moving content hassle-free.
Both TVs run cool without warmest areas.
The models are curved (that extends viewing angle a little), but it could be hardly noticeable on the wall. Samsung QN55Q6F has metallic side stands that are very sturdy and plastic rear panel with good cable management. Its silver-finished borders are thin and the TV itself is thin too.
Samsung 55NU8500 has an average thickness and a center stand with a silver finish. Its ports can be difficult to access if the TV is wall mounted. It has metal high-quality borders that are very thin.
