Product Snapshot


The Samsung Q6FN/Q6/Q6F QLED is one of Samsung’s higher-end 4K TVs from their 2018 lineup. Its VA panel promises to provide better black and contrast ratio than IPS LCD TVs, but it can’t quite match the perfect blacks of an OLED.

On the other hand, the Q6FN/Q6/Q6F QLED’s excellent peak brightness aims to provide superb picture quality even in bright rooms. And Samsung claims that Tizen OS makes the interface easy to navigate without any clutter.

Thanks to that, the Q6FN/Q6/Q6F QLED is very well positioned for movie buffs. Continue reading below to learn more about what reviewers said about the Samsung Q6FN/Q6/Q6F QLED. Also, give today’s top-rated TVs a look, too.


our Verdict

The Samsung Q6FN/Q6/Q6F QLED is a great TV for media consumption. It offers a great contrast ratio, amazing peak brightness, and deep inky blacks for dark rooms. Just be aware of the poor viewing angles. Gamers should note the lack of HDMI 2.1.
