How are Colors on Samsung Crystal 4k TV?

The colors of the display panel are just amazing at this price point, Halo effect is there a bit which is normal in this price range. The uniformity of colors is just amazing, and the display panel used in this TV is just amazing. Display deep blacks and vibrant colors. Upscaling feature is there but I would recommend you watch HD channels on this TV as the SD channel quality was not great. But HD channel upscaling was great. You can play 4K videos from a pen drive as well.

Software support and app support on Samsung crystal TVs?

Every important OTT platform app is there like Netflix, amazon prime, Hotstar, etc. I would recommend getting good-sounding speakers, don’t get me wrong but if you use external speakers with this amazing TV it will increase your cinema watching by 10 folds. However, you cannot sideload apps from the play store as this is not on the android platform. Jio Cinema app is also available on this TV if you want to enjoy IPL in 2023.

Audio Quality of Samsung Crystal 4k pro TV

Additional features and remote features of Samsung Crystal 4k Pro TV

The remote of samsung crystal 4k pro TV is slim, and easy to hold and fewer buttons make this remote icing on the cake.

You have to press the button than speak into the microphone, but make sure you don’t release the assistant button before you have given your voice command.

4K videos are a treat to watch on this video, but you will need a good internet connection with unlimited bandwidth as 4K videos consume more data. So your 2GB data per day plan will vanish in the thin air in very less time. The bottom line is to get a good internet connection.

Short answer is no. My samsung crystal tv is working really well. I don’t see any lag even after 1 year of my usage which is pretty great in my opinion. This TV is great and handles every task that i through at this tv really well. I can quickly switch between apps, no hassle whatsoever.
