The TU8070 series, together with the TU7190 , is the one that excited us the most in this 2020. In fact, the models belonging to these two Samsung series share most of the features and technologies. The difference is that, the one we will talk about today, is a little more complete and innovative , especially from the point of view of voice commands.
Here are the main features:
- Screen technology: LED
- Screen Resolution: UHD 4K
- HDR: Yes
- Operating system: Tizen
- Internet and Wifi: Yes
- USB ports: 2
- HDMI ports: 3
The design, as you can see from the image above, is something extremely clean, linear and modern. On the three sides there are no frames ( Boundless Design ), the panel is extremely thin and the Clean Cable Solution function offers the possibility to keep the cables well tidy and hidden. In short, the smart TVs of the TU8070 series seem designed specifically for home furnishings.
Speaking of visual quality , here are the elements that combine to make the image extremely sharp and realistic:
- Crystal Display that ensures a wide, rich color range with natural shades
- Crystal 4K processor that optimizes the image parameters of each content
- HDR technology that guarantees high levels of contrast for greater clarity
- Support to ‘ HDR10 + and HLG
It should be emphasized that, thanks to the Game Enhancer technology , the gaming experience is also very fluid and realistic. The input lag, in fact, is practically imperceptible. However, the TU8070 smart TV panel also lends itself to the most serious moments, that is, those to devote to work. The mirroring function allows you to share the PC screen on the TV display, and to work on your files or documents in maximum comfort.
The only real flaw that we must underline of the TU8070 series is the viewing angle , which unfortunately is very small. The problem, of course, is not perceived by sitting well in front of the panel. As for the audio there is not much interesting to underline: we are talking about the classic Dolby Digital Plus and the 20 watts of output power.
Our considerations about the sound section lead us to strongly advise you to buy a soundbar , so that you can amplify the sound experience and make it a little deeper and more engaging. Let’s now move on to the smart part, which together with the image quality is certainly the strong point of these TU8070 smart TVs. The operating system is Tizen , which as always never disappoints: fast, simple and intuitive.
The repertoire of apps that can be downloaded is also excellent, without considering all those already present in the system. You can access the most famous and used ones (Netflix, Prime Video and Rakuten) directly from the keys of the One Remote Control . The latter, having to respond also to needs related to design, has few keys, which could be slightly complicated (then you get carried away).
To interact with the smart TV, if you want, you can rely on the convenience of the three integrated voice assistants : Bixby, Alexa and Google Assistant. However, this does not mean that you will not be able to connect your voice assistants to the television. Finally, we must emphasize the convenience of the AirPlay 2 function , which allows the wireless connection between the TV and Apple devices.
In conclusion, we at Smart4k.it are very satisfied with the quality and completeness of the TU8070 series, also because the price is not excessively high .
