Samsung Q90 QLED TV Review

A QLED that does things only an OLED previously could, the Q90R is an exceptional telly.

Samsung has clearly taken these criticisms to heart, and directly addressed them in the Q90. The new model has a visibly superior viewing angle that holds its own against an OLED TV, and the local dimming delivers deep blacks without losing shadow detail. To that end, the new Ultra Black Elite filter is nothing short of a revelation, rejecting ambient light in a way that just staggers belief.

Throw in the superb image processing with its AI learning algorithms and you have the best QLED TV that Samsung has produced to date.

How does it fare against OLED?

The Q90 is able to deliver images that can directly compete with an OLED, with natural colours, bright highlights, deep blacks, and well defined shadows. It can also surpass any OLED when it comes to HDR, with images that are often breathtaking in their detail and dynamic range.

In fact our only real criticism would be that unlike some of the competition, the Q90 doesn’t support Dolby Vision. However in all other respects the Samsung Q90 is an absolutely stellar TV that takes QLED to another level.
