  • If you’ve heard about Samsung’s new Frame TV you might be wondering if it lives up to the hype. The TV is a 4K resolution set but it’s got another amazing feature that allows it to blend in with your decor seamlessly: Art Mode. More: www.TechGadgetsCanada.com
    Follow Erin on Instagram & Twitter @ErinLYYC
    The TV is ultra thin at just about 2"thick and comes with a black art-style frame around it. Different detachable magnetic wood frame options are also available.
    The Frame uses what Samsung has dubbed the No Gap Wall Mount. The two piece mount comes with the TV, which is a huge deal, if you ask me. The back of the TV hides a recessed cavity where one half of the mount is screwed securely in.
    The second piece of the mounting hardware affixes to the wall, and gets screwed into the studs.
    Another amazing aspect of the Frame TV is the Samsung One Connect box and Invisible Connection which means you'll see virtually nothing when it comes to cords and cables.
    All that’s there are a small power cord and the Invisible Connection fibre optic cable.
    That cable runs from the TV to the One Connect box which can be hidden out of the way. this is where you'll connect your components like game consoles, DVD/Bluray players, sound bar, streaming device and more.
    Art Mode is what sets this TV apart from other televisions. When the TV is not displaying video, it goes into Art Mode.
    Here you can select high quality, high resolution art prints or photography that lives on your TV all the time.
    The free art available on the TV is high quality and beautiful, and I found several pieces that worked perfectly for my decor. It's also possible to subscribe to even more art from Samsung. For about 8 bucks month you can get hundreds more pieces so you can keep changing your look.
    A light sensor adjusts the screen's output constantly so that the art is always visible in its best light. Got sunlight streaming in and filling the room? The art looks realistic and bright.
    You can also enable the motion sensor. This will power Art Mode fully off leaving a blank screen, but when the TV detects motion in the room, your art will pop back up.
    With the amazing art properties, it's easy to forget this magic art portal is also a TV. An Ultra High Resolution 4K TV with built in HDR to boot.
    I had the TV for a couple weeks and watched numerous programs and movies on it:
    4K is an amazing viewing experience. It's impossible to accurately describe what seeing hyper-realistic video is like, but if I must try, watching 4K video on the Frame makes me want to reach out and pet the sloths, snag a line drive, and otherwise get up and walk into the picture. It's a fabulous party for your eyes, and the drinks are on Samsung.
    Streaming is built in to this TV, so you can access GRclip, Netflix and even surf the web from the TV itself.
    The TV comes with a small white remote, or you can use your smartphone whether it’s Apple or Android.
    Does the basic black bezel not do it for your decor? You can purchase different color would look frames for about $200 USD each from Samsung.
    The frames come in four pieces which are perfectly sized to wrap around your TV. They snap on and off in seconds with magnets. The concept is actually pretty genius
    Normally when I wrap up a review I try to provide some balance about what's great about the product, what needs improvement, and what's just downright terrible. I am really struggling to find anything negative to say about the Frame TV.
    The art mode is amazing and I would put it in my living room for this feature alone. The fact that it's also a deliciously detailed 4K TV is just the icing on and already amazing cake.
    It goes without saying that the 4K picture is stunning and realistic. With the HDR support for more accurate color representation and that her light replication, there's just nothing bad to say about the picture.
    I think the TV is very responsive and switches quickly between modes.
    Even the basic speaker in the TV is pretty good. If I were going to have this TV permanently installed in my living room, I would definitely take the extra step of getting a proper sound bar for it, but for right now, I was actually a little bit impressed at how good it sounded.
    Even the Samsung smart view app seems to be much improved since my last review with a Samsung TV. It connects quickly and easily every time so I am able to control the device with my smart phone there's no lag and it's nice having the extra option of a smart phone remote.
    I think this TV is a genius concept. For the Home theater junkie you get amazing picture, and for the designer/decorator in the home, art mode just makes this TV blend in beautifully. I really can't find a downside to the Samsung frame TV. I think I've pretty much decided, and so has my husband, that this is going to be our next television. And yes, it's going right up on the living room wall.

    this only works if it's a small frame surrounded by multiple other real art frames around it to camouflage itself even more.. otherwise might as well just get a full blown full option tv and build something around it to hide it.. a second wall or something.

    No negatives? What about the lack of "block reflection" features. If they're trying to sell this TV as a "picture frame" then that's one of the most important aspects IMO because that glass reflection is not going to trick anyone; and if it doesn't why i'm paying extra for a tv, then?

      Yes you’d want a sound bar and you can further hide the cord by putting conduit in the wall and running the cable inside it.

    That is NOT sitting "fully flat" against the wall. Fully flat means no space at all between the back and the wall. Now into my question about the TV; how long of being in art mode will it take before it permanently burns the image into the screen?

    You should pass that wire through the wall down to the media cabinet to really take advantage of the artistic features of that TV. It'll look much more like a piece of art, not technology.

    There is no need to see the wire connecting the T.V. and the one connect. Simply cut in a one gang low voltage plate and run the wire inside the wall down to the one connect. Thus achieving the true picture frame effect.

    Good review...but...200 dollars for wood frames that should come with "The Frame" tv, the cords should be buried in the wall, there is an external black box, you still would have a clunky cable provider black box with cords and probably line of sight cable remote, using the included sansung remote is not ideal (I have this remote and it should have more buttons and features in my opinion. Minimalist with a remote is often not desired.) and it's just a mid level 4K tv with art mode, that should be a feature on all their TVs. It's easy to add that to a television, like a chromecast or other would have as a default screem image. (without an artists caption for name of image, location or creator) This TV with wireless HDMI is the ideal. The Wallpaper TV is qn interesting choice as well, but as usual in advertisements for both TVs, the cords are white and purposely subtracted or diminished in the photos or videos. Still, an interesting TV with a design upside. (money money) In otherwords, review almost had zero negatives. All products have some. Added: Subscriotion to artwork? Samsung with billions couldn't pay some okay artists? Really?

    Could you explain more about what makes it better for displaying artwork? Is it just the ability to adjust to the lighting conditions? Is it more of a matte finish on the screen or is it just as reflective as your typical screen. I noticed that I could see you reflected in the screen filming the video, so it has some reflectivity.

    • Charlie Cleveland
      Charlie Cleveland Πριν 3 μήνες

      These are the questions I really would love to know the answer to also. I especially want to know how good the dimming is in low light: does the artwork "glow", or does it get harder to see, just like a real painting?

    Good review! I especially like how you made clear that Samsung neglected to use nonreflective glass and I could admire bits of your room reflected on the great art during you video. Art lovers would use non reflective 'museum glass' (if they use any glass cover at all), so why should they put up with seeing what's behind them reflected on the surface of art displayed on Samsung's product?

    No puedes tener un Frame tv de Samsung en la pared y que se vean los cables, es un crimen. Es una falta de gusto y de un mal concepto del diseño que estropea por completo la estética y el sentido de este televisor. No cuento más de 50€ poner las conexiones detrás del televisor para que queden ocultos. No puedes gastarte 1800€ en el televisor y dejar el acabado tan cutre.

      Hola Sergio, gracias por ver este video. Since the TV was only temporary, I didn't want to drill for conduit. If I was keeping this TV, or installing it permanently, I would definitely hide the cable. Estas corecto en que si gastaras tanto en una televisor de este calidad, necisitaras esconder los cables.

    Purchased this tv 18 months ago and it is by far the worse tv I've ever bought. The remote is near useless, it is super slow and trying to upload images for art is near impossible. buy something cheaper and a remote that is sturdy and works. most of all dont buy this crap!
