Exterior design of the Samsung UE85AU7172UXXH
The first positive point of the Samsung UE85AU7172 is that it offers an attractive design that can be seen from almost any angle, yes, we must consider that it is a fairly large model that, due to its dimensions, is recommended for very large rooms and halls.
Our advice is that you acquire the VESA support in order to obtain a better placement, especially if we plan to install the TV on the wall. As if that were not enough, this allows us to enjoy a better view of the front that stands out for delivering somewhat thin bezels.
Which generate a more elegant environment, in addition, allow the useful space on the screen to be greater, which turns out to be ideal when viewing content . The rear part also seems attractive to us, since unlike other models it gives us a less bulky space.
Therefore, we obtain a striking appearance that integrates quite well with any environment, although placement plays an important role. Possibly the least remarkable thing is the construction of this television , since we noticed that the materials are of low quality.
This television presents us with a simple connectivity that provides the necessary connectors to receive an experience according to our needs. To begin with, we find three HDMI 2.0 inputs that are perfect for transmitting the signal from external devices. We have a single USB that we can use to play content or record it if we want.
In the specifications table you can find the rest of the physical connections that you will have at your disposal. Right there, we put the compatible tuners. On the wireless issue we highlight the presence of Wi-Fi , Bluetooth and DLNA . If you want to see the rest of the connections that are available, you can check it in the specifications table that we leave you above.
Image quality and functions in general of the Samsung UE85AU7172
The quality presented by the Samsung UE85AU7172UXXH seems to us sufficient to view any content that we want to view. We say this because we found a good optimization, also, we received some improvement technologies for a better experience . For starters, we hit 4K resolution to see more realistic details.
In this case the main disadvantage is its LED panel, and we say this because we have noticed that depending on the environment we can receive some loss in quality. This happens with some frequency when being in very dark or bright environments , since this type of backlight does not reach the necessary power, therefore, the location is paramount.
As we mentioned at the beginning, it is a model that equips some functions that will offer us a better experience. Here we highlight the presence of PurColor that considerably increases the spectrum of colors with the idea that they are exposed in a more vivid and intense way to enjoy more realism.
In search of offering more fluid images, the new Motion Xcelerator Turbo technology has been integrated, which also offers a great benefit when playing. For everything to work optimally we have the 4K processor. We cannot forget that this model offers us HDR+ compatibility that will give us sharper and more precise images.
The main weakness of this model is its audio quality and we do not say this because we consider it bad, however, it does not meet what is necessary for more demanding content. The detail is found in its speakers that barely reach a total power of 20W, which is normal in the mid-range, however, due to their size they could have included a little more quality, as we see in other models.
The only advantage is that it includes improvements such as Adaptive Sound , Dolby Digital Plus and Q-Symphony , three options that try to give us a more immersive and precise experience, especially in the dialogues that are usually the most affected. However, it seems to us that the ideal is to acquire a sound bar that gives us the quality that we really need to clearly hear movies or video games.
Analysis of the software / Smart TV and more notable features
The Samsung UE85AU7172 has its own system, which due to its excellent work is currently considered one of the best and it is not for less if we consider that it comes with a very good optimization and security, in addition, it has a fairly good catalog of applications that integrates the most popular options of the moment .
In this case we must highlight some functions specially created for this system, for example, Tap View that allows us to play content directly from our smartphone, the best of all is that it detects it automatically , thus making it much easier for us to play it. Ideal if we want to visualize our social networks.
Nor can we forget Samsung TV Plus that gives us the option to enjoy a large amount of free content. Likewise, we are going to have a game mode that allows us to enjoy more fluid and precise movements with a very high image quality. Without a doubt, this model is a great option without having to spend too much.
