Samsung QN55Q70RAFXZA: 55-inch QLED TV with Premium HDR and Intuitive Smart Platform

Samsung QN55Q70RAFXZA

Representing a middle-class QLED TV, the QN55Q70RAFXZA delivers a high-quality darkroom performance with capable 4K/HDR enhanced by Quantum 4x processing. It serves well as a regular TV, the movie-watching and gaming set. While not having the black filter, it retains its solid performance in the moderately lit room.

The Q70R series by Samsung appeared in 2019 as a less pricey alternative to the flagship QLED models. While featuring a less sophisticated design, it produces a high-quality picture with vibrant colors enhanced by Quantum Dot film. All TVs in this series (there are five screen sizes represented, from 49- to 82-inches) boast native 120Hz rate with up to 240Hz interpolation and developed smart features including SmartThings tech, built-in voice assistant, and customizable Universal Guide.

The panel of the Samsung QN55Q70RAFXZA is based on the VA matrix enhanced by the Direct LED backlight with the Full Array feature. Combined with the tone mapping technology, it creates a vivid and bright picture with popping colors. Blacks and grays are solid and deep, with no blurs or wash out issues. Whites are concentrated and precise, with a touch of warm hue making the contrast sharp. The color gamut is wide, and the accuracy is high in both SDR and HDR formats.

HDR compatibility of this TV includes HDR10, 10 , and HLG. While there’s no Dolby Vision, the HDR10 format with the dynamic metadata is handled efficiently creating the spot-on highlights and providing for yet sharper image contrast.

The TV is very responsive and has low input lag (14ms) delivering an efficient monitor performance. Besides, the Game Enhancer tech smooths down the judder while the scene-by-scene optimization delivers solid contours and constant colors.

In the QN55Q70RAFXZA review, it is essential to mention the diverse connectivity options this TV set has. There are four HDMI (2.0b version) and two USB ports, a VGA input, Ethernet connection, and two outputs for audio (optical and analog). There are no component or composite ports for older versions of AV players while the wireless connectivity is quite rich. Apart from Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, there is a SmartThings technology allowing sync and control all Samsung-branded devices and some smart home appliances by other brands.

The incorporated Tizen 5.0 smart platform is intuitive and simple, with two-layer data representation and the AI-powered technology. The AI learns the user’s choices and works out the recommendations based on accumulated data. This content is gathered on a separate “For you” page of the Home menu. The streaming apps are many and are accessed easily through the remote or via the smartphone app.
