South Korean consumer electronics giant, Samsung, have a pretty popular share in the television market. Samsung seems to be aiming for the top place in the SmartTV market with their breathtaking innovations and it probably won't be long before they are the number one too.

Samsung SmartTVs come in a broader range of sizes than you can imagine, from 32 inches to 85 inches or more, using typically LED display panels though the rare species of Samsung's plasma SmartTVs are doing just as well.

How Samsung Connects to the Internet

Your Samsung TV will connect to your home internet through the built-in wi-fi and occasionally, you're also provided with an ethernet port. For a more full rounded experience on your SmartTV, Samsung includes a full web browser for you to surf the internet with more independence.

Samsung Smart Features

Samsung SmartTVs come with a full blown set of features that are often not found on many other brands. Of course these are benefits included mostly in their latest products and carry relatively higher price tags.

Smart Hub : This is where your Samsung SmartTV stores all the goodies, as opposed to certain other brands which display all the services on the television's homepage. With Smart Hub Samsung claims you can manoeuvre your way around apps, live television broadcast, movie streaming, Skype or web browsing in a smoother manner.

S Recommendation : This is what Samsung TVs use to let you know what's hot and happening on television channels.

Smart Interaction : Samsung's SmartTVs are best known for their singular approaches to communicate with you. You can use gesture control which means you swipe and control the TV by waving your arms or fingers in mid-air or voice commands. In addition to this, is the most recent face recognition luxury which means you never again need to go through the entire login process on facebook. You simply stand in front of your Samsung and ask it to log in. The camera on the screen recognizes your face and logs into your FB, Twitter or other social media networking profile.

Smart Applications : The apps section on Samsung looks like an unremitting flow of options which would take forever to put down here. From Netflix and BBCi to Amazon and Vudu, or even Skype, it's all there on these Smart TVs.

Smart Evolution : This is a kit to make your investment future proof and comprises the necessary upgrades for your TV.

What else?

Samsung's SmartTV collection is currently either a dual core or quad core splash, though the purpose and need for quad cores are still pretty vague. As in TVs of other brands, the dual core processor handles everything required of your SmartTV with ease, so no matter how superb it sounds, the quad core isn't much in terms of gain.

More or less all of Samsung's SmartTVs are integrated with 3DTV and include active 3D shutter glasses in the box.

Samsung's televisions in general are known to have fine image quality and good interfaces, nevertheless, the best Samsung SmartTVs are the fully loaded ones which are higher up the price ladder.

  • Samsung's best-performing TV ever, the PNF8500 series pushes the plasma picture quality envelope, especially in bright rooms.


  • While we can't claim that the F8500 is the new reference TV in picture quality, it looks to be one of the best 1080p televisions ever. Each screen size in this series is fairly expensive, and they should be: There is only quality here. The F8500 has royally surpassed one of the biggest drawbacks of plasma tech-their dimness when compared to LCDs-giving those with the funds to pursue it every reason to do so.


  • The Samsung PNF8500 series is a top-shelf plasma HDTV line that delivers outstanding color quality, solid 2D and 3D imagery, and very dark blacks. You'll shell out some big bucks for this model though, and you may want to pick up a universal remote while you're at it.

    In my opinion this TV looks as good or better than the ES8000 design-wise. A good chunk of dough has also been wiped from the price, so consider this one of my top value pics for 2013/2014. The only thing it gives up from the top model are the micro dimming ultimate, though it still has micro dimming, and it has a dual core processor rather than the quad-core, and no front facing camera.


  • The 55-inch F7100 is not worth $2,499 (though it's available right now for $1,699). While Samsung's Smart Hub (and the cable connectivity therein) is probably the best smart platform on the market, it's still only a smart platform. On one hand, this TV looks great, and is fitted with all of the modern accoutrement you might want with an investment in a new display. Be warned, though: It has a few drawbacks that make me hesitate to praise it further.


  • The Samsung F5500 plasma offers great features and very good picture quality, but its performance suffers significantly under the lights.

  • Rating Unavailable

    The PN51F5500 is the smallest size in the mid tier plasma series from Samsung. Picture quality is strong here but it lacks a bit when compared to the top tier F8500 plasma. This is to be expected, but the feature set is still quite good. The F5500 uses Active 3D to create 3D images, Samsung's new Smart Hub is offered with all the apps and online content you would ever need. It loses the built in front-facing camera, but voice interaction is present a lot more useful than we initially thought it would be.


  • Within the TV industry, reviewers and hobbyists alike agree on one thing: Plasma TVs produce a better picture than LCDs. And, hand over heart, it's true. However, LCDs like the Samsung F6300 redeem the fickle technology's mass popularity: This TV's picture looks very good, hands down, and its software works with fluid precision.

    If you're in the market for a mid-sized TV, and want the bright light levels of LCD over the ink-black shadows produced by plasmas, the 46-inch F6300 is a great option.

  • Rating Unavailable

    The UN55F6300 is strong in value in 2013 in the 60 inch market. By eliminating 3D and micro dimming and sticking with some of the features that matter most, this is a tough model to beat in the mid-level LED TV category.
