Samsung QE55Q7F Review | Trusted Reviews

 

Samsung QE55Q7F review: QLED tech proves there's plenty of life in LCD yet. The war for HDR is far from over, and this is a formidable challenger to OLED.

Bright with lovely colours ; Strong contrast ; Premium build and design ; External connections box

Occasional lighting issues ; Expensive

If you love colour and brightness, then you should check out this TV

Samsung QE55Q7F

 

Welcome to Samsung's 2017 VIP table. Here you'll find the QLED series, which sits at the top end and replaces last year's SUHD range.

QLED proves that the battle for HDR dominance is far from over. If you love colour and brightness, check it out.

Samsung QE55Q7F review

 

Can QLED beat OLED? Perhaps not. But perhaps it doesn't have to

Awesomely bright, vibrant images ; Detailed and very sharp indeed ; Neat, attractive design ; Smart and simple to use ; Excellent for gaming

Sacrifices black performance for vibrancy ; Poor viewing angles ; Motion isn’t perfect

A previous HDR bug has been squashed and the Q7F is now a thrillingly punchy and more affordable alternative to its OLED rivals

Samsung QE55Q7F review

 

If a bright, vibrant picture is top of your TV wishlist, this Samsung has you covered

Bright, vibrant picture ; Crisp and detailed ; Great, easy-to-use smart TV interface ; Attractive design

Forgoes black levels for brightness ; Motion is hard to get right ; Narrow viewing angle for best picture

A bright, detailed picture that's easier on the pocket than OLED

Samsung Q7FN QLED TV (55Q7FN) review

 

Bright and beautiful but still missing some key components

Minimalist appearance ; Startling color accuracy ; Great for daytime viewing

Edge-Lit VA panel ; Limited viewing angles ; Motion handling

The Samsung Q7FN QLED TV has most of what makes the class-leading Q9FN great: Its quantum dots help produce a colorful but not oversaturated image and local dimming has really improved year-on-year. That said, off-axis viewing is still an issue and...

Samsung continues to push the boundaries when it comes to TV design and user interaction – the QE55Q7F is smart in many ways. Inputs are housed on the external One Connect box, linked to the slim-framed TV via a single near-invisible cable that allows...

Samsung QA55Q7F review

 

Samsung's cheapest 2017 QLED is a TV worth getting excited about

Lovely, thoughtful design ; Fabulously punchy, detailed images ; Superb for gaming ; Great array and integration of streaming services

Doesn’t go as black as OLED ; Viewing angles aren’t great ; Standard-def looks pretty ropey

Looking for a brilliant, premium TV that won’t turn your lounge into a cinema? You’ve just found it

Samsung QE55Q7F 4K QLED LCD TV Review

 

Samsung's Q7 is their entry-level QLED 4K TV model and offers quantum dot and Ultra HD Premium certification but is it enough in a highly competitive...

High peak brightness ; Effective local dimming on SDR ; Wide colour gamut ; Very low input lag ; Simple setup and operation ; Excellent feature set ; Good design and build quality

Local dimming struggles on HDR ; Narrow optimal viewing angle

The Samsung Q7 is certainly a very capable TV and for those who are interested in buying a QLED model but find the price of the Q8 a bit steep, it makes for an ideal alternative. The Q7F has all of Samsung's usual flair, with an attractive design and a...
