Main Features of Samsung TU8000 TV

Ergonomic Design

At this price, it's probably unsurprising that this product's backplate, bezels, and stand are predominantly made of black plastic. Despite this, it has a solid feel to it, with a satisfying heft when you take it out of the package and minimal bezels that keep the kit looking sleek, plastic and all. However, some people can find the design unpractical to use.

Amazing Picture Quality

The product produces a decent image for its price, but the out-of-the-box settings need some tweaking to get the best out of it, particularly with HDR content. It has an amazing processor which converts everything you view into stunning 4k. With the help of this TV, colors are seen crystal clear and fine-tuned to produce a naturally crisp and vibrant picture.

App Store Included

Apple Tv, Amazon Prime, Netflix, YouTube, NOWTV and Disney Plus, and UK's catch-up channels, from BBC iPlayer to My5, are all available in the Samsung 85-inch Class Crystal UHD TU-8000 Series. Talking about the app store, you can add other applications like UKTV Play, BBC Sounds, and Spotify to your home menu, with the order of the apps you add to your home menu completely customizable to your tastes.

Scroll down from the main row of applications to find Samsung's entertainment center, which features rows of TV and film tips from a select few providers. Although the majority of the choices shown to us seemed to be from Apple TV, Chili, or UKTV Play, it's a shame that more famous channels like Netflix, Amazon, or BBC iPlayer were not included.

Auto-brightness

Are you tired of changing the brightness of your television now and then? Then Samsung 85-inch Class Crystal UHD TU-8000 Series is for you. It has a feature of auto brightness which can sense the room brightness and adjust the picture accordingly. This feature, in turn, saves much energy, and you may also use a timer to ensure that it turns off within a certain amount of time.
