Samsung QN65Q80RAFXZA: High-End 4K TV On Quantum Processor 4K Base

Samsung QN65Q80RAFXZA

This review is devoted to the QN65Q80RAFXZA, a 65-inch model from Samsung’s high-end Q80R series. The TVs from this line come in a variety of sizes (from 55 inches to 82 inches). They all are based on Quantum Processor 4K and can offer the Samsung Direct Full Array 8X feature.

I would like to start this Samsung QN65Q80RAFXZA review by saying a couple of words about Quantum Dots. It’s an exclusive technology from Samsung which ensures more color volume and more color shades with increased depth. Being a QLED TV, the QN65Q80RAFXZ is able to ensure a really bright image that even may seem too bright without proper settings. The Quantum Processor 4K optimizes content for true 4K quality and ensures image with increased clarity even on fast-moving content which results in a silky-smooth picture. The full-array local dimming feature splits the screen into individual zones that get brighter or darker when it’s necessary.

The Samsung QN65Q80RAFXZA can’t offer Dolby Vision support, but it supports a number of HDR formats: HDR10, HDR10 , and HLG.

Speaking about the on-screen interface, the TV works on the base of the Samsung Smart Hub platform. It appears on the bottom part of the screen and is very easy to navigate. It offers such sought-after streaming services as Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, etc. Plus, there is also a Universal Guide which remembers your content and gives recommendations basing on it.

The TV goes with One Remote control. It’s minimalistic but allows controlling all the compatible devices connected to the TV. There is also a microphone to interact with inbuilt Bixby voice assistant. The TV is also compatible with Alexa and Google Assistant.

In this QN65Q80RAFXZA review, I would like to say that I don’t like the fact that Samsung ships this TV without One Connect box like it does with many of its premium models. Because of it, all the connectors are located on its rear panel. There are four HDMI 2.0a ports (one with ARC support), two USB 2.0 ports, an Ethernet port, an RF input, and an optical audio output. Both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth for wireless connectivity are also present.

The TV stands on two T-shaped feet which don’t look elegant, as for me. However, behind the stand, you can hide all the cables so the rear part of the TV will look neat. The TV has metallic borders around the screen that is only 0.39-inch thick. The QN65Q80RAFXZ is also very thin (2.48-inch max thickness).
