QE49Q80T from Samsung : Test and analysis

Samsung QE49Q80T : the new Ultra HD 4K

Recently Samsung has released information about its new model of television . It is the QE49Q80T.
Classified in the mid-range category. we thought we had to have a closer look at it in order to check whether the constructor had done a good job or not.
Concerning technology, it is worth noting that this model is delivered with a Ultra HD 4K resolution.  It could be said that this model gathers all the expected characteristics. Whether we consider its aesthetics or its size, the engineers of Samsung have developed a television admittedly a middle-range one, but a quality one anyway.
Why can we consider this QE49Q80T as convincing in spite of its mid-range position ? This is what we are going to discover in this article.

The design of the Samsung QE49Q80T

Sober but in line with current trends. Samsung has asked its design office to make a product that tends towards the top range, but remains affordable.
A product that is correct in view of its price. A sleek but effective design. It has the potential to compete with other TV sets on the market.
In short, the Samsung has really succeeded the design aspect of this TV, which does not go unnoticed no matter where it is installed. If when turned off it has such an effect, the sensations take on a whole new dimension when the screen of the Samsung QE49Q80T is revealed.

QE49Q80T from Samsung – The screen

The display of this QE49Q80T is handled with care. This will allow connoisseurs to enjoy a quality rendering in home theater mode. The colours are faithful and deep black.

The Samsung QE49Q80T is available in the Ultra HD 4K resolution. Whatever the characteristics, it is still a beautiful screen. On this point, don’t worry.
With a frequency of 48 Hz, this television is therefore less well placed than its competitors. Shifted image and lack of precision make this model a low end of the range.
Finally, Samsung has chosen to put advanced technology on this TV, which makes it possible to have an Ultra HD 4K image quality .
My opinion to conclude on the display part. It’s in the range, without flourish or excess. An additional choice in the mid-range.

QE49Q80T from Samsung – The sound

The sound quality is correct but nothing more. The typical low-medium and mid-range sounds are far from what the competition offers. The sound of the QE49Q80T still has the advantage of not being saturated. In any case, the installation as presented ex-factory is just sufficient for this television set
In terms of sound equipment, the TV is equipped with several loudspeakers and a power output of 10 W.

In short, the sound is enough to cover your everyday needs. The QE49Q80T Samsung is not designed for home cinema. That’s not what we are expecting.

The Intelligent aspect of the Samsung QE49Q80T

It has almost become a habit for Samsung, this QE49Q80T has its operating system Tizen 5.5 installed; it allows you to explore a whole universe of entertainment.
This TV offers you the choice of connectivity: Whether through its Wifi function, or through the local network with other devices or computer devices (fixed or mobile computers, NAS synology for example), your TV QE49Q80T is communicating.
This software environment innovates on the Samsung QE49Q80T with a new feature: control the television set with voice. Indeed, thanks to the voice control function, it is possible to change channels, TV sources, turn the TV volume up or down just by talking to it. Isn’t that convenient?

QE49Q80T from Samsung – Its connectivity

As for the connectivity aspect on Samsung QE49Q80T, it provides you with sufficient elements.
Thanks to its above-average number of connections, this TV is very generous.

This model has a total of 12 connections, not too bad. The Samsung QE49Q80T is probably the best choice today. Most homes are now equipped with a box, a game console, a multimedia server, and other devices, in addition to the simple DVD player.

2 USB ports, 4 HDMI ports, 1 audio output, 5 antenna inputs
