Samsung Q90R – Home Gallery
Our finest QLED 4K UHD TV
Review Samsung Q90 QLED TV
Samsung’s attempts to introduce and develop LCD technologies have been surprisingly successful. While its big Korean rival LG has poured billions of dollars into OLED development, Samsung believes LCD and ultimately MicroLED are essential to delivering ultra-bright HDR content.
MicroLED mainstream may be a few years old, but Samsung has made significant strides when it comes to LCD, a technology that is decades old. The company is gradually eliminating certain limitations in the design of LCD panels, creating a superior product through various innovations.
These include VA panels, direct LED backlighting and local dimming for better blacks, brighter highlights and superior contrast performance. More recently, Samsung has applied quantum dot technology, which has resulted in more colors and put Q in QLED.
The company now believes it has overcome the last big limitation of the LCD display and has extended optimal viewing angles. It’s these innovations that spawned the flagship TV for 2019: the Samsung Q90R.
But can QLED TV beat out OLED? Let’s take a look at this new flagship TV and see if Samsung achieves its goal of delivering the best QLED to date. Samsung Q90 price and release date
UK pricing has yet to be announced, but the QE65Q90R reviewed here is expected to be under £4,000.
In the US, the Q90 will only be available in three sizes – 65-inch QN65Q90RAFXZA, 75-inch QN75Q90RAFXZA and 82-inch QN82Q90RFXZA – starting at $3,499 for the 65-inch version.
Pricing and availability for Australia, India and UAE are determined by TBD but we will update this review when we know more.

The Samsung Q90 continues the company’s 360-degree design with a minimalist appearance that looks good from every angle. The simple elegance of a bezel-less screen and an eye-catching metallic finish around the outer edge. The back panel has textured grooves that not only make the rear view prettier, but also help hide the cable that connects the One Connect box.
The Q90 sits on a fairly traditional stand that provides solid support and adds to the overall style. The smaller size is also sure to appeal to anyone hoping to place this TV on an existing stand. If you prefer a wall mount, there is a removable panel on the back, behind which there are mounts for an optional “no-gap” bracket. Just remember that this well-made TV is heavy.
Literally only one connection on the back of the Q90, everything else in the One Connect box. Here you will find four HDMI 2.0b inputs, three USB ports (two 2.0 and one 3. 0), two terrestrial and satellite tuners, a CI slot, an external channel for automatic calibration, an optical digital input, and a LAN port for wired connection (although there is also a built-in WiFi and Apple AirPlay).
Interestingly, the Q90 doesn’t support HDMI 2.1, but it can still do everything you might need. So there’s 4K at up to 120Hz, dynamic metadata (HDR10+), variable refresh rate (VRR), and automatic low latency mode (ALLM). Q90 does not currently support Enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC), but it is not needed at the moment and can be added later.
The included remote control uses the same attractive metal construction and ergonomic design as last year, making it comfortable to use and easy to use with one hand. There’s a microphone for voice control, and Samsung has now added direct access buttons for Netflix, Amazon, and Rakuten at the bottom.
Design TL; DR: The design remains attractive, the stand is more practical and the remote has a few extra buttons. The One Connect box is a great idea, and despite the lack of HDMI 2.1, it supports everything you need.

The Samsung Q90 uses the latest version of the company’s smart platform, and in terms of layout, it’s virtually the same as last year. At the bottom, there is a launcher and a second layer that provides quick access to various video streaming services.
Since the main purpose of the TV is to watch content, the more video streaming services the smart platform supports, the better. And for that matter, Samsung has plenty of apps for Netflix, Amazon, Now TV, Rakuten, YouTube and all the UK TV collection services. If that wasn’t enough, the company even made peace with Apple and will later add an iTunes app later this year.
With all of this content, there’s a danger of information overload, so Samsung cleverly added a one-stop guide. This new feature is designed to bring all your favorite games, movies, sports and streaming services together into one easy-to-use interface.
The content that can be accessed through the intelligent system is included in the Universal Guide, and it uses AI machine learning to analyze your browsing patterns to create a single “For You” page with personalized content to your liking. This feature works very well, and the more time it takes to analyze your behavior, the better the recommendations become.
There are many ways to control the Q90, including the supplied remote and the SmartThings app. The latter can also be used to set up a TV and is available for both iOS and Android. The SmartThings app also lets you use your TV as a hub, allowing you to sync, share, control and connect with other smart devices in your home.
If that wasn’t enough, you can also control your TV with the built-in Bixby smart assistant. This feature can be accessed by pressing the microphone button on the remote control or by simply saying “Hey Bixby”. We found that using the microphone on the remote worked best, avoiding confusion caused by ambient noise. However, both allowed us to control the TV and ask Bixby questions.
If you don’t want to use Bixby, the Q90 is also compatible with Amazon Alexa, Google Assistant, and thanks to the inclusion of AirPlay, even Apple’s Siri, which means the TV can be controlled by voice with all the major smart assistants.
Finally, the Q90 includes the latest version of Samsung’s Ambient mode. This feature allows your TV to blend in with its surroundings, providing images and information when you are not actually using the TV. This lifestyle feature now has dozens of different designs and images, and you can even use family photos if you like.
Smart TV TL; DR: Samsung’s smart system is a sophisticated and comprehensive platform that now includes iTunes, universal guide and Bixby voice assistant.
HD / SDR Performance
Samsung Q90 specifications
Screen sizes: 55-, 65-, 75- and 82-inch | Tuner: Freeview Play Satellite HD | 4K: Yes | HDR: Yes | Technology panel: QLED | Smart TV: Yes | Curved: None | Dimensions: 1450 x 922 x 284 mm (W x H x D) | Weight: 35 kg | 3D: No | Inputs: 4xHDMI, 3xUSB, 2xRF, optical, Ethernet, CI slot
The Samsung Q90 delivers a fantastic level of picture quality right out of the gate. The combination of direct LED backlighting, high performance local dimming and the new Ultra Black Elite filter produces images with exceptional contrast. This excellent dynamic range is achieved without crushing shadow detail, and thanks to the filter’s remarkable capabilities, it can deliver that contrast whether the room is brightly lit or in total darkness.
Colors are natural and AI-enhanced image processing enhances low-resolution content with amazing accuracy. Screen uniformity is also excellent, with no streaks or haze affecting LCD TVs. Ultra Angular Viewing Angle technology is a revelation where neither contrast nor color degradation is associated with the LCD when moving off-axis.
In short, the Q90 delivers some of the best images we’ve seen on a QLED TV, so good it can hold its own against any OLED. Watching scenes from Gravity , Q90 local dimming provides black space without crushing and white EVA suits without shearing. The stars are well defined and sudden changes in contrast are handled with skill.
The same excellent performance applied to the Samsara Blu-ray , with stunning images bursting with vibrant colors and exceptional detail. Image processing is state of the art, especially when fed a quality source, but there are some handy noise reduction features for lower quality sources as well.
Motion control is good for an LCD TV and there are many useful motion settings that can help smooth things out. This is especially useful in fast-paced sports, while black border insertion is effective for improving motion control of movies. If you’re a gamer, the 14ms input lag means your own reactions will be the only limiting factor.
HD / SDR Performance TL; DR: SDR performance is excellent: natural colors, deep blacks, great shadow detail, bright highlights, wide viewing angles, and 14ms input lag.

The Samsung Q90 is even more impressive when it comes to high dynamic range (HDR) content, delivering some of the best images we’ve seen to date. All the elements that made SDR performance so good apply here as well: blacks remain inky and shadows are detailed thanks to local dimming that can effectively compete with the self-emitting nature of OLED.
However, unlike OLED, the Q90 can go much brighter. We measured peak heights of 1600 nits, which is twice as high as the best OLEDs. The color space is almost 100% of the DCI-P3 target, while the fidelity and tone mapping are truly impressive. The result is an HDR image that perfectly matches the content creator’s intent with deep blacks, vibrant highlights, and accurately saturated colors.
Disc like Planet Earth II A riot of color and detail, with Q90, capable of delivering daytime sequences with sufficient accuracy and correspondingly blinding highlights. A complex scene like night hyenas is just as impressive: deep blacks, lots of shadows, and almost no bloom. The increased resolution of Ultra HD Blu-ray also gives Samsung the opportunity to take full advantage of the built-in 4K panel.
Q90 supports HDR10+, which is an open source version of HDR that uses dynamic metadata for each scene. This approach ensures that regardless of display capabilities, HDR images always reflect the intentions of content creators. Watching the latest HDR10+ releases like Bohemian Rhapsody and Bad Times at El Royale revealed all the possibilities of the format. Images are incredible with subtle color and contrast enhancements thanks to dynamic metadata.
Samsung has added a new feature to actually detect when a TV is showing HDR10+ content. This worked with something like the Grand Tour on Amazon (which looked amazing by the way), but doesn’t work yet when displaying HDR10+ content from a 4K disc. The only real criticism you can make on Q90 is that it doesn’t support Dolby Vision (a proprietary version of HDR that also uses dynamic metadata), which puts it at a disadvantage compared to some of its competitors.
4K / HDR Performance TL; DR: Q90 builds on the superior performance of SDR, adding brighter highlights and wider colors to deliver one of the best HDR experiences to date.
The Q90 uses direct LED backlighting, which means it’s deeper than most ultra-thin TVs today. One useful side effect of this extra depth is that Samsung can cram four speakers, two subwoofers, and 60W of amplification into the panel. As a result Q90 provided excellent sonic performance with good stereo separation, well-defined mids and higher frequencies, clear dialogue and deeper bass.
This year, Samsung has also added machine learning to TV sound, and Intelligent Sound mode adjusts the sound based on the environment and content. This gives the sound coming from the TV more width and depth, and optimizes the speaker output to create an experience that is better defined and more immersive.
As soon as you turn on Smart Sound, the sound comes to life, and when watching a football match, the commentary remains clear, but the crowd becomes much more exciting. In the film, the music and effects are clearly defined and the dialogue stays focused on the screen. If you are playing a game, then the processing places the effects at the front of the room with high precision.
Unlike many other TVs on the market, the Q90 does not support Dolby Atmos, which can put it at a disadvantage. To be honest, a TV with stereo speakers can only really do to create an object-oriented mix, but it’s important that the Q90 can send Dolby Atmos from built-in apps like Netflix to soundbar support via HDMI Audio Return Channel.
Sound TL; DR: The sound quality is really good for a modern TV and the addition of AI processing results in audio that automatically adapts to the content and room.
The Samsung Q9FN won numerous awards last year for its features and image quality. It wasn’t perfect, however, and there were legitimate complaints about viewing angles and an overly aggressive local dimming system that crushed detail just above black.
Samsung clearly took this criticism to heart and addressed it directly with the Q90.
