Samsung’s attempts to innovate and evolve LCD technology have been surprisingly successful. While its big Korean rival LG has invested billions developing OLED, Samsung has taken the view that LCD and ultimately MicroLED are necessary to deliver today’s ultra-bright HDR content.
Mainstream MicroLED might still be a few years off but Samsung has made significant advances when it comes to LCD, a technology that’s decades old. The company has been incrementally addressing certain limitations in LCD panel design, creating a superior product through various innovations.
These have included VA panels, direct LED backlights and local dimming for better blacks, brighter highlights, and superior contrast performance. More recently Samsung has embraced quantum dot technology, which has resulted in more colors and put the Q into QLED.
Now the company feels it has conquered the last big limitation of LCD and widened the optimal viewing angles. It's these innovations that spawned the TV maker's flagship TV for 2019: the Samsung Q90R
But can a QLED TV beat out OLED? Let’s put this new flagship TV through its paces and see if Samsung succeeds in its goal of delivering the best QLED to date. 

Samsung Q90 Price and Release Date

In the UK, the Q90 comes in four screen sizes: 55-inch (QE55Q90R), 65-inch (QE65Q90R), 75-inch (QE75Q90R), and 82-inch (QE82Q90R). 
UK pricing has yet to be announced, but the QE65Q90R, reviewed here, is expected to retail for less than £4,000. 
In the US, the Q90 will be available in only three sizes - the 65-inch QN65Q90RAFXZA, the 75-inch QN75Q90RAFXZA, and 82-inch QN82Q90RFXZA - with pricing starting at $3,499 for the 65-inch version.

Samsung Q90 QLED TV Design

The Samsung Q90 continues the company’s 360-degree design ethos with a minimalist appearance that looks good from all angles. There’s a simple elegance to the bezel-less screen, and a fetching brushed metal trim 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 complements the overall styling. The smaller size is also sure to please anyone hoping to position this TV on an existing equipment stand. If you’d prefer to wall mount there’s a removable panel at the rear, behind which there are fixings for the optional ‘No-Gap’ bracket. Just remember this well made TV is heavy.
There’s literally only one connection on the rear of the Q90, everything else is in the One Connect box. Here you’ll find four HDMI 2.0b inputs, three USB ports (two 2.0 and one 3.0), twin terrestrial and satellite tuners, a CI slot, an external link for auto calibration, an optical digital input and a LAN port for a wired connection (although there’s also built-in WiFi and Apple AirPlay).
Interestingly the Q90 doesn’t support HDMI 2.1, but can still do everything you’re likely to need. So there’s 4K at up to 120Hz, dynamic metadata (HDR10+), variable refresh rate (VRR), and an auto low latency mode (ALLM). The Q90 doesn’t currently support an enhanced audio return channel (eARC), but that isn’t necessary at the moment and could be added later.
The included remote control uses the same attractive metal construction and ergonomic design as last year, making it comfortable to hold 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 along the bottom.
Design TL;DR: The design remains attractive, the stand is more practical and the remote has a few added buttons. The One Connect box is still a great idea and despite the absence of HDMI 2.1, it supports everything you need.

Samsung Q90 QLED TV Smart TV 

The Samsung Q90 uses the latest iteration of the company’s smart platform, and it’s largely the same as last year in terms of layout. There’s a launcher bar along the bottom and a second layer that provides quick access to the various video streaming services.

Since a TV’s main purpose is to watch content, the more video streaming services a smart platform supports the better. And in that regard, Samsung has the lot, with apps for Netflix, Amazon, Now TV, Rakuten, YouTube, and all the UK TV catch-up services. If that wasn’t enough, the company has even made up with Apple and will be exclusively adding an iTunes app later this year.
With all this content there’s a danger of information overload, so Samsung has wisely added a Universal Guide. This new feature is designed to collate all your favorite games, movies, sports, and streaming services into a single user-friendly interface.
Content that can be accessed via the smart system is included in the Universal Guide, and it uses AI machine learning to analyze your viewing patterns to create a single ‘For You’ page with personalized content to suit your tastes. This feature works really well, and the more time it has to analyze your behavior, the better the recommendations become.
There are plenty of ways of controlling the Q90, including the provided remote and the SmartThings app. The latter can also be used to set-up your TV and is available for both iOS and Android. The SmartThings app also enables you to 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 using the built-in Bixby smart assistant. This feature can be accessed by either pressing the microphone button on the remote or simply saying “Hi Bixby”. We found using the mic on the remote worked best, avoiding any confusion caused by ambient noise. However, both allowed us to control the TV and ask Bixby questions.

4K/HDR Performance

The Samsung Q90 is even more impressive when it comes to high dynamic range (HDR) content, delivering some of the best images we have seen to date. All the elements that made the SDR performance so good, apply just as much here - the blacks remain inky and the shadows detailed thanks to local dimming that can effectively compete with the self-emissive nature of OLED.

However, unlike an OLED, the Q90 can go much brighter. We measured the peak highlights at 1,600 nits, which is twice as much as the best OLEDs. The color space is nearly 100% of the DCI-P3 target, while the accuracy and tone mapping are genuinely impressive. The result is an HDR image that perfectly replicates the content creator’s intentions with deep blacks, bright highlights and accurately saturated colors.
A disc-like Planet Earth II is a riot of color and detail, with the Q90 able to deliver the daylight sequences with plenty of accuracy and suitably blinding highlights. A difficult scene like the hyenas at night is equally as impressive, with deep blacks, plenty of shadow detail and almost no blooming. The increased resolution of the Ultra HD Blu-ray also gives the Samsung a chance to make full use of its native 4K panel.
The Q90 supports HDR10+, which is an open-source version of HDR that uses dynamic metadata on a scene-by-scene basis. This approach ensures that regardless of the display’s capabilities, the HDR images always reflect the content creators intentions. Watching recent HDR10+ releases like Bohemian Rhapsody and Bad Times at the El Royale revealed the format’s full capabilities. The images are incredible with subtle improvements in color and contrast thanks to the dynamic metadata.
Samsung has added a new feature to actually identify when the TV is showing HDR10+ content. This worked with something like The Grand Tour on Amazon (which looked gob-smackingly good by the way) but doesn’t yet work when displaying HDR10+ content from a 4K disc. The only real criticism you can level at the Q90 is that is doesn’t support Dolby Vision (a proprietary version of HDR that also uses dynamic metadata), putting it at a disadvantage to some of the competition.
4K/HDR Performance TL;DR: The Q90 builds on the excellent SDR performance, adding brighter highlights and wider colors to deliver one of the best HDR experiences to date.

Samsung Q90 QLED TV Sound

The Q90 uses a direct LED backlight, which means it’s deeper than most of today’s ultra-thin TVs. One useful side effect of this extra depth is that Samsung can squeeze four speakers, two subs and 60W of amplification into the panel. As a result, the Q90 delivered an excellent audio performance with good stereo separation, well-defined midrange and higher frequencies, clear dialogue, and deeper bass.
This year Samsung has also added some machine learning to the TV’s audio, with the Intelligent Sound mode adjusting the audio depending on the environment and content. This gives the sound emanating from the TV more width and depth, and optimizes the speaker output to deliver an experience that is better defined and more immersive.
As soon as you turn on Intelligent Sound the audio bursts into life and when watching a football match the commentary remains clear but the crowd is far more enveloping. With a movie, the music and effects are clearly defined, while dialogue remains focused on the screen. If you’re playing a game the processing places effects around the front of the room with precision.
Unlike many other TVs on the market, the Q90 doesn’t support Dolby Atmos, which might put it at a disadvantage. To be honest, there’s only so much a TV with stereo speakers can really do to deliver an object-based mix, but importantly the Q90 can send Dolby Atmos from built-in apps like Netflix to supporting soundbars via the HDMI audio return channel.
Sound TL;DR: The sound quality is genuinely good for a modern TV, and the addition of AI processing results in audio that automatically adapts to the content and the room.

Final verdict

Last year the Samsung Q9FN won plaudits galore for its features and image quality. However, it wasn’t perfect and there were legitimate complaints about viewing angles and an over-aggressive local dimming system that crushed detail just above black.
Samsung has clearly taken these criticisms to heart and directly addressed them in the Q90. The new model has a visibly superior viewing angle that holds its own against an OLED TV, and the local dimming delivers deep blacks without losing shadow detail. To that end, the new Ultra Black Elite filter is nothing short of a revelation, rejecting ambient light in a way that just staggers belief. 
Throw in the superb image processing with its AI learning algorithms and you have the best QLED TV that Samsung has produced to date.
How does it fare against OLED? 
The Q90 is able to deliver images that can directly compete with an OLED, with natural colors, bright highlights, deep blacks, and well-defined shadows. It can also surpass any OLED when it comes to HDR, with images that are often breathtaking in their detail and dynamic range.
In fact, our only real criticism would be that unlike some of the competition, the Q90 doesn’t support Dolby Vision. However, in all other respects, the Samsung Q90 is an absolutely stellar TV that takes QLED to another level.
