Before I start to compare the Samsung QN55Q8F vs Samsung QN55Q7F, I have to say that the first one represents a Q8F series, and the second one – Q7F series. All the Q8F series products are supplemented by the Smart TV with Bixby Voice and Ambient Mode. The Q7F series can boast with Q Contrast Plus screen and powerful processors. Both TVs were presented in 2018 and are at the average cost.
The Q8F representative has very good real scene brightness. Small highlights also stand out really amazing. The Q7F model demonstrates an excellent contrast ratio, but unlike the QN55Q8F, it has a full array local dimming feature. Thanks to it, the Samsung QN55Q8F vs QN55Q7F simile shows that the last TV creates much better conditions for movie/programs watching in the dark room.
The Samsung QN55Q7F vs QN55Q8F collation demonstrates that the first model has a wide range of installed apps. I downloaded a lot of other services via the app menu without problems. The second one TV also has the same feature, but an Ambient Mode becomes a pleasant addition. Such a peculiarity customizes what the unit displays when it is inactive. There is a possibility to install clock, weather widget or any photo. The QN55Q7F has a higher sound quality than the QN55Q8F has. All the auditory effects sound more vividly, while the QN55Q8F produces some wheezing.
The QN55Q8F has a very modern look with a nice finish and sleek lines. It has wide-set plastic legs, which greatly keep the TV but may not fit on some tables. The QN55Q7F is complemented with a centre stand, which allows routing the cables easily. The QN55Q7F has thinner borders (0.31" versus 0.51") and such a difference is clearly visible. Moreover, the QN55Q8F has a small gap between the frame’s edge and the first pixels. Another model doesn’t have such an assembly peculiarity.
The Samsung QN55Q8F is better TV in this comparison. Check Samsung QN55Q8F price
