Samsung The Frame 2022 QLED TV Quick Review​

Samsung The Frame 2022 QLED is a work of art that blends into your home style like a painting, and you can choose your favorite border to match the aesthetic. Its performance also matches its looks, providing enough brightness to combat glare and a nice contrast ratio.

In contrast to its predecessor model, the 2022 model has a matte anti-glare coating, so the screen offers a very good reflective finish. The TV offers a wealth of gaming features, but unfortunately only one of the four HDMI ports supports 4K 120Hz.

Samsung QN90B vs The Frame 2022: Picture Quality and Sound​

The Samsung QN90B features Neo QLED technology that combines the benefits of Mini LED and Quantum Dots to showcase brighter and more vibrant colors. More and smaller LEDs provide precise localized light control to improve the screen's brightness and contrast. Its excellent local dimming function further enhances contrast and provides deep blacks without excessive halos. Images are further enhanced by the QN90B's Samsung Neo Quantum 4K video processor.


The Samsung QN90B has excellent high peak brightness, enough to combat glare in bright rooms, and is capable of delivering very bright HDR content. It supports HDR10, HDR10+, and HLG, but as with other Samsung TVs, lacks Dolby Vision, which may be one of the regrets for many users.

In large bright scenes, the TV's automatic brightness limiter (ABL) reduces the brightness of the picture, and dark scenes will have a partial halo around bright spots, but it is hard to detect.

The Samsung The Frame 2022 is a QLED TV with a very high native contrast ratio that delivers deep blacks in dark scenes, but without the local dimming feature like the QN90B. It has a good peak brightness performance, enough to combat glare in bright rooms. It has a new matte coating on the screen instead of the semi-glossy screen of older models, providing greater anti-reflection capability. As a result, it delivers an accurate picture even when you're in a room filled with ambient light or with lights.

Like the Samsung QN90B, The Frame 2022 supports HDR10, HDR10+, and HLG but not Dolby Vision. Samsung The Frame has a narrow viewing angle, and when you are off-center on the screen, the quality and accuracy of the image are significantly degraded. In contrast, the Samsung QN90B has a good viewing angle, but you need to be aware that the 43-inch and 50-inch models have poor viewing angles.

The Samsung QN90B is equipped with 4.2.2 60W speakers and the OTS+ system is able to place the sound in the right place on or off the screen. Samsung The Frame 2022's 2.0.2 40W audio will meet your basic needs with a good response frequency but lacks bass.

If you want a better sound experience, a good soundbar is a good choice.

Samsung QN90B vs The Frame 2022: Design​

The Samsung QN90B has a sleek, minimalist design that blends well into your environment. It features slim bezels and a stand while providing a thin enough panel, which is not easy enough for an LCD TV. Its stand is small enough to fit into narrower furniture, but it also tends to wobble as a result. The TV supports 400x300 wall mounting, and the TV panel can sit flush with the wall without sticking out.

The channels on the back of the TV can be used to manage cables, but when you mount the TV to the wall, the inputs on the back of the TV become difficult to access.

The biggest selling point of Samsung The Frame 2022 is its design, which is the perfect combination of art and technology. Its black frame allows the TV's image to be displayed like a work of art, and you can choose your favorite frame color to match your décor. You can browse works from a variety of artists on the TV, so wall-mounting it is the choice of most users.

The TV's panel is thin enough and comes with a slim lim-Fit wall mount to hold the TV flush to your wall. The TV is equipped with the One Connect Box for easy cable management to keep it looking nice and tidy.

You can also choose to stand The Frame 2022 on furniture with a stand that raises or lowers the TV.

The Samsung QN90B supports up to 4K 120Hz resolution and has very low input latency in gaming mode. It offers four HDMI 2.1 ports so you can connect multiple high-bandwidth devices simultaneously.

The Samsung The Frame 2022 also supports 4K 120Hz and gaming features such as VRR, FreeSync, G-Sync, and ALLM for an excellent gaming experience. Unfortunately, only one of its four HDMI ports supports HDMI 2.1, so users with multiple high-bandwidth devices will have to connect some devices to HDMI 2.0 bandwidth.

Samsung QN90B vs The Frame 2022: Summary​

In terms of performance and use, the Samsung QN90B TV is better than The Frame 2022, with its Mini LED and local dimming capabilities resulting in much higher contrast, brightness, and color of the image for watching programs in bright or dark rooms. It also offers excellent gaming performance.

The Frame 2022's main selling point, on the other hand, is its artwork-like design with a matte screen that older models don't have. It also has good brightness and excellent contrast for your movie-watching needs in a bright or dark room. It also offers a wealth of gaming features, but with only one HDMI 2.1 port.
