Note that, you will need high definition HDR content to really enjoy the outstanding display of this TV, which you typically get on Netflix, Amazon and Blu-ray discs.
We also recommend that you upgrade to HD set top box as you can’t really enjoy the real display prowess of this TV with standard definition content.
As with most TVs available in India, the refresh rate is 60 hz which is fairly decent for fast action movies and sports. Samsung also claims that you can enjoy lag free gaming with this TV.

The audio has standard 2 channel 20 W output. It supports Dolby Digital Plus, which means you get better surround sound immersive experience provided the content too supports it.
The sound experience is quite good for content from Netflix and Prime. But for standard cable TV content, owing to moderate content quality, you might not be able to have a real immersive experience.

The TV also facilitates screen mirroring from laptop and mobiles phone. You can also store content on Samsung cloud and play them on your TV.
By installing SmartThings app, you can facilitate all smart features easily. It can also be used as your TV’s remote control as the one that comes along is too old fashioned.
Talking about the drawbacks, as mentioned, the remote looks quite boring compared to the TV. When LG provides voice control smart remote control, you can’t but feel Samsung’s remote to be grossly inadequate.
Next, the TV doesn’t have Bluetooth connectivity, which again means you can’t connect to your Bluetooth earphone or wireless-ly connect to external sound bars.
In terms of connectivity, the TV has 2 HDMI port and 1 USB port. So, take a count of what all you intend to connect to your TV to check if it will suffice or whether you will have to frequently meddle with the wires.
