Samsung always tends to surprise us with the televisions that it brings to the market on a regular basis, since each year they improve past versions to adjust to the needs of users. Their best models are usually found in the high range, however, lately they have paid more attention to the lower categories where they also want to compete. That is why this time we bring to the analysis the Samsung QE50Q65B that has striking features in each section, obviously we will also talk about the negative.

Exterior design of the Samsung QE50Q65BAUXXC
The Samsung QE50Q65BAUXXC maintains the essence of other models that we have previously analyzed, which almost always leave a good feeling regarding design. Obviously there won’t be any drastic changes that we can mention, but we found the aesthetic appealing.
Let’s start by talking about its dimensions, which are 644.1 x 1118.3 x 25.7 mm on a 50-inch TV. Here we are not adding the VESA support that increases the depth section a bit. It will be correct to use in medium rooms or halls.
The total weight will be 11.4 kilograms, being a not so heavy equipment, however, we recommend asking for help in case you want to move it from place or when installing it, since a fall can be tragic, especially since its construction materials are not so resistant .
Once we have the proper placement, we will notice the good integration it offers thanks to the thin bezels that improve the presence and even generate an elegant environment that is also due to the black chassis. Thus we have a powerful combination aesthetically.
The rear is also not far behind because its space is less bulky and allows you to enjoy a slim appearance that has always been requested in current televisions. Thanks to Ambient Mode technology we have a gallery to show when the TV is idle.
It includes three HDMI 2.0 inputs that are usually the most used regarding connectivity, since they allow the signal to be transmitted from consoles, computers, laptops and players. The performance will be more than correct, in addition, to improve the experience it works with ARC and ALLM .
It also has two USB 2.0 ports that we can use to play videos, photos and even music from compatible external drives or memories. Likewise, it has content recording that allows you to save your programs to watch them later.
The rest of the physical connections will also be important, so you can check what options you have by accessing the specifications table that we leave you at the top. In this space we have also placed those TV tuners that are compatible.
The wireless theme stands out quite a bit unlike some models that are direct competitors, since we have dual-band Wi-Fi Direct . However, the most attractive thing is the inclusion of Bluetooth 5.2 , which improves a lot per version. In case you want to transmit, it offers DLNA .
Image quality and functions in general of the Samsung QE50Q65B
It may seem that the image of the Samsung QE50Q65B does not stand out much, but thanks to the optimization we have an interesting quality, although it is also due to certain details that we will analyze below. First of all, we are facing a television with 4K definition .
That derived from its power shows precise scenes, yes, we must consider that it has an Edge LED backlight that provides a poorly controlled local dimming, which means that the lighting does not have much balance and we will notice it in very dark and bright environments.
Luckily, it also integrates a VA panel that stands out for offering higher levels of contrast and brightness, making black and white look a little purer, but not everything is positive, since this causes the colors to show less fidelity and precision. when reproducing.
To solve this small problem we have Quantum Dot that creates a better range of colors. We find other improvement functions that stand out for trying to improve essential parameters to enjoy deep scenes. Nor does it mean that the experience will be incredible.
There are still slight limitations that cannot be changed. Let’s not forget that there is compatibility with HDR10 + Adaptive , HLG and Quantum HDR that will work as long as the content is compatible.
It is surely one of the weak points and not precisely because the audio is bad, in fact, it seems acceptable and fair considering that most mid-range televisions have the same quality. We refer to two speakers with 20W of power .
Which include technologies such as Adaptive Sound , Dolby Digital Plus and OTS Lite that provide an immersive and precise experience. However, the problem we see today is that a lot of content is more demanding and requires a more powerful sound.
Analysis of the software / Smart TV and more notable features
The Samsung QE50Q65BAUXXC includes Tizen 6.5 , which is the most recent version, therefore, we are going to enjoy the improvements used in terms of optimization and security. We also found a more extensive app store that adds new options.
It offers up to three voice assistants to facilitate certain activities and enjoy better control. Here we have Google Assistant , Alexa and Bixby , the latter being exclusive to Samsung. Another attraction is that we find several exclusive functions that seek to improve the experience.
We are going to have some gaming technologies that certainly improve the quality and precision in video games, although we have a maximum frequency of 60 Hz, however, having Auto Motion Plus and Motion Xcelerator make the fluidity improve considerably in the end.
