While TVs are becoming bigger in size Samsung tried to make TV looks more fascinating. Samsung is ahead with its The Frame TV series when it comes to making TVs more beautiful. The OLED display of the Frame TV makes it ideal for wall hanging. The TV looks as same as a hanging painting on the wall. I will review the Frame TV 2021 edition. This TV comes in 4 different sizes; 43 inches at 54,990 Rs, 50 inches at 72,990 Rs, 55 inches at 81,990 Rs, and 65 inches at 1,19,990 Rs.
Samsung The Frame 2021 TV Review
Design and Picture Quality
Samsung The Frame produces amazing picture quality, it is as good as a painting that is meant to be viewed at a gallery. The blacks of the display are deep while the brightness is balanced across the screen. The TV comes with QLED backlighting and it does not have any dimming zones. The TV looks as same as a painting on the wall.
There might be some questions in your mind about what happens to the wires that might ruin the decoration of the TV. Well, there is an integrated unit with different ports for all the other sources and power sources as well. And the main thing is that you can keep that box away from the TV, thus it will maintain the gapless mounting.
The Samsung Frame TV has better sound quality than its previous version. Dialogue has improved significantly, although the overall sonic presentation is not that good. The TV sound is loud enough thanks to the 40W output, however, you will feel the lack of bass when it comes to the cinematic experience. You will have to invest in a soundbar or Home theatre system if you really enjoy the content that you are watching. But make sure the soundbar or Bluetooth speaker system is compatible with Dolby Atmos as the TV’s screen can decode the amazing surround sound format.

The most important thing about this TV is the Art Mode that makes this TV looks fascinating. With the Art Mode, there is also Ambient Mode that can be used as a screensaver of selection made by you when the TV is not being used to watch. It also shows headlines, weather reports and photo gallery slideshows. You can also use the screen as a SmartThings hub which is a Samsung branded smart home controller that lets you access connected devices on network ranging. The Frame TV’s interface is really amazing thanks to the Tizen operating system.
This TV features a large number of streaming applications to download and use straight from the Samsung Frame TV, these apps are; Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, Disney Plus, Apple TV+ and many more. You can also find the streaming channels collated on the TV. You will get to see all the apps on horizontal rails and the Live TV from the apps is displayed in the “On Now” selection. The Frame TV’s interface is really easy to understand and navigate.
This TV also does excellent in mirroring the other smart devices’ displays. Its SmartThings app for Android phones lets you mirror a user’s smartphone screen on the Frame TV. It will be much easier if you have a Samsung Galaxy smartphone.
Conclusion: Samsung The Frame 2021 TV Review
The Samsung The Frame TV is one of the best TVs, it is a beautiful TV. It’s impressive for watching TV shows and sports and playing games thanks to good display quality and high peak brightness and decent reflection handling. It has a more response time than usual TV, 120Hz refresh rate, low input lag, and VRR support, making it one of the best options for playing games and use as a PC monitor as well. It also comes with high contrast ratio to produce deep blacks, which is excellent for watching movies in the dark, but unfortunately, it lacks local dimming. It doesn’t get very bright in HDR as well. Overall, it is a good TV.
