All the TVs from the Q70R series have a lot of great features, like, for example, Quantum Processor 4K, Bixby, and Ambient Mode. The QN65Q70RAFXZA is one of the representatives of this series. It is a 65-inch model that was released in 2019, being a great solution for those who want a TV with a sleek design and premium Samsung’s features but for a slightly reduced price.
I would like to start this QN65Q70RAFXZA review by saying a couple of words about the TV’s basic features. It features full-array local dimming, has a 120HZ refresh rate, and supports HDR10, HDR10 , and HLG. This way, the black color performance is decent, and the transition from one color to another is smooth.
The other QN65Q70RAFXZA specs include an intelligent Quantum Processor 4K which is responsible for upscaling content to true 4K quality. The Quantum Dots technology allows for revealing more color shades than an average 4K TV, so you see a realistic, crisp, and clear image.
The TV features a boundless 360° design which means that the frame is very thin (0.40-inch), so you focus on the picture more. It stands on the typical Samsung’s V-shaped stand which requires quite a lot of free space as it has 38.3 x 9.6 inches footprint. The TV’s body is made of good-quality black plastic. Its max thickness doesn’t reach more than 2.5 inches.
Since it’s a LED backlight TV, it required a deeper chassis which allowed for the installation of more powerful 40W stereo speakers, so the sound is fairly decent.
The TV can offer 4 HDMI inputs, 2 USB ports, digital optical audio out, and an Ethernet port. However, all the inputs are faced sideways, so it will be difficult to reach them in the case if the TV is mounted on the wall. Both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are available for wireless connectivity.
Of course, this Samsung QN65Q70RAFXZA review wouldn’t be complete if I had not mentioned the included advanced remote control: it’s slim and has a minimal set of buttons which include dedicated buttons for Netflix, Amazon Video, and Hulu. There is a pinhole for a microphone for voice control via Bixby which works fine for basic commands like changing the volume level or for movies/TV shows searches. The TV also supports Alexa and Google Assistant.
The provided QN65Q70RAFXZA manual is clear and easy-to-understand, so I didn’t have any issues with the initial installation. Plus, all the inputs are well-labeled, so you probably won’t have problems with connections.
