It’s a great time to be shopping for a new TV. From Ultra High Definition 4K resolution to HDR for amazing colours, and smart functions, you’re getting a lot of features in new TVs today. That’s the case with Samsung’s Q6F TV. I recently had a new 65 inch Q6F delivered to my home to try out first hand for a few weeks.

Setting up Samsung Q6F 4K TV

Overall this TV is a breeze to set up and use. The first time you may need to locate the button underneath the front of the TV to power on, or just use the remote. From there you’ll immediately be prompted to download the SmartThings app from Samsung on either the App Store or Google Play or from Galaxy Apps.

Once you’ve got the app up and running (you’ll need to sign up for an account, or sign in) you have full control over your TV with your phone. Of course you can also use the included remote control too.

Samsung Q6F 4K TV features

There are a few key features of the Samsung Q6F. It’s a QLED TV, with 4K resolution, HDR and smarts.

What is QLED?

“LED” stands for light-emitting diode, which is the method of lighting the screen. The Q stands for Quantum Dot, Samsung’s technology for replicating billions of colours.

So what’s the difference between QLED and OLED? Pocket Lint explains this well; “the lighting is really what sets the two technologies apart. Quantum dot TVs still rely on an LED backlight system working in zones, but OLEDs each produce their own light, they’re either on or off. The advantage that OLED offers is that you can turn off the pixels that aren’t needed, giving absolute black areas with no light bleed caused by the need for illumination in some parts of a dimming zone (in theory). Samsung’s QLED models all use an edge-lit LED system (some are lit from the sides, some bottom) and this is divided into dimming zones. The more dimming blocks the better for delivering different light levels in different areas on the screen.”
