Choosing a new tv — or any electronic one for that matter — used to be a simple task. You went to an electronic store, bought the latest TV from a brand you love, and then watched it. Now, it has become an intimidating task as the biggest television brands like LG and Samsung constantly go head-to-head to one-up each other in visual, audio, and smart technologies. And with technical terms like HDR, LED, 4K, OLED, QLED, or 8K, it’s a miracle to find the right TV you’ve been looking for.
Read our Samsung Frame TV review for more details on why TV lovers and art enthusiasts alike will want this Samsung television for themselves.
At a Glance:
A QLED 4K Smart TV allows viewers to directly connect to the internet to stream their favorite movies, music, and TV shows at a higher resolution (3840x2160) than full HD (1920x1080). And this is all shown on a Quantum Light-Emitting Diode (QLED) screen that uses quantum dots to super-charge its brightness and color, creating more vibrant and dynamic images for viewing pleasure.
So, to put it simply, a QLED 4K Smart TV offers the best and brightest images for users to be completely immersed in their visual experience. You’ll feel like you are watching a concert, documentary, or racing on a speedway as you stream your shows, movies, games, and more, all at the touch of a button or voice command.
Fans of Samsung technology and modern designed televisions that love the premium picture quality, streaming capabilities, and an artwork display mode along with other exclusive features are usually those who are:
- Art enthusiasts
- Movie lovers
- Tech connoisseurs
Samsung crafts modern, premier televisions designed with the philosophy of “Inspired by humans, creating the future” in mind. Samsung manufactures the next best thing in television innovation based on their users’ needs, creating some of the best pieces of technology to upgrade your TV-viewing pleasure. If you have been dying to get your hands on a Samsung 4k TV for greater viewing or streaming purposes, you could buy an older 32-inch model for as little as $500, while the latest and largest available 55-inch television will cost as much as $3,500.
With all the TV technical jargon being thrown around in a store, it can be confusing to know which screen type, resolution, TV size, accessories, and additional features are the right one for you. But in the case of Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) and Quantum Light-Emitting Diode (QLED), we did the heavy lifting and broke down each screen type’s strengths and weaknesses.
☑ Very high screen brightness
☑ Low input lag, so there is little delay between action onscreen and controller commands
☑ Larger screen sizes
☑ Longer lifespans
☑ Lower prices
☑ No risk of burn-in (permanent version of image retention — where the previous image still lingers on the screen instead of changing.)
☒ Narrow viewing angles
☒ Slow pixel response time
☑ Wide viewing angles up to 84 degrees
☑ Has the broadest range of colors
☑ Produces less blue light for viewers’ eye comfort
☑ Fastest pixel response time at 0.1 milliseconds
☒ Can get extremely expensive based on screen size
☒ Susceptible to image retention and burn-in
Ultimately, both are great choices for enjoying a gaming session or a family movie night. It’s just a matter of what you want in a Samsung TV. QLED excels in delivering a higher brightness, longer lifespan, larger screen sizes, and lower prices. On the other hand, OLED is unmatched in better viewing angles, deeper black levels, and energy efficiency.

This means that Samsung QLED TVs do not pose any threat to a viewer’s eyes despite their high brightness.
