Samsung Q70A QLED TV|
The Samsung Q70/Q70A QLED is a good overall 4k TV. It improves upon its predecessor, the Samsung Q70/Q70T QLED, in a couple of ways, most notably its significantly faster response time, which delivers a smooth gaming experience. It also supports FreeSync variable refresh rate (VRR) and has an incredibly low input lag. While it lacks local dimming, it has an exceptionally high native contrast ratio, so it produces deep blacks that look great in the dark. It gets bright enough to overcome glare in most lighting conditions, but it's best to avoid placing it in direct sunlight because it doesn't diffuse direct light very well. It's decent for HDR thanks to its wide color gamut, but it can't get bright enough to bring out the brightest highlights. Unfortunately, like most VA panels, it has narrow viewing angles, so the image looks washed out from the side.
The Samsung Q70 has decent HDR brightness. It’s quite consistent across various scenes, and the overall brightness of scenes is as it should be, as you can see the EOTF follows the line closely. However, the brightest highlights may be lost.
