Samsung QE49Q7F review


Samsung has produced another quality QLED at a size that OLED doesn't touch.

Punchy, bright and vibrant pictures - particularly in HDR ; Fabulous detail and definition ; Great operating system ; Excellent for gaming ; Broad selection of apps

Iffy viewing angles ; Can be beaten for motion ; Sony rival is cheaper and more subtle

The Q7F is an HDR-tastic TV and one of the best in the class

Samsung QE49Q7F review


Samsung's cheapest QLED is a TV worth getting excited about

Lovely, thoughtful design ; Fabulously punchy, detailed images ; Superb for gaming ; Great array and integration of streaming services

Doesn’t go as black as OLED ; Viewing angles aren’t great ; Standard-def looks pretty ropey

Looking for a brilliant, premium TV that won’t turn your lounge into a cinema? You’ve just found it

Samsung QLED Q7F (QE49Q7F) review: Samsung's QLED tech hits the spot


Superb colour reproduction, great HDR and ultra-low input lag make for one of the best sub-50in TVs money can buy

Excellent SDR picture quality especially in non-light-controlled room ; Stunning colour rendition ; Very low input lag for gaming

Limited viewing angles ; Dark HDR scenes washed out and exhibit blooming/haloing ; Pricier than competing TVs of similar size

The Samsung 49Q7F is one of the best sub-50-inch TVs you can buy new today – not least because OLED TVs are not available in sizes smaller than 55 inches. It key strengths include a 120Hz panel, stunning colours, great motion, class-leading...

Samsung's QLED range of TVs looks to take on OLED - the technology said to have the potential to offer the very best picture quality. The QE49Q7F is touted to have bolder, brighter colours, but is this really the case? Find out if our TV experts agree...

Fantastic picture, and no cable mess.


Have only had the TV for 2 weeks, and so far extremely happy with it. Installation and setup was easy. TV and stand look stylish and the cable system means no unsightly mess of cables hanging out the back of the TV. The picture is excellent. Plenty of...

Great picture and superb value


Purchased in June to replace a 12 year old tv. Actually not the one I intended to buy but it was significantly better colours, viewing angle and vibrancy when compared side by side, and not a whole lot more. Really easy to setup with the Samsung...
