The biggest difference between Samsung The Serif and other smart TVs is in its design. It's an OLED TV with a unique shape and a sleek design that makes it one of the perfect decorative pieces for the modern home.

Samsung The Serif doesn't go for an extremely thin body like a typical smart TV, it's more like a decorative piece with a cloudy white exterior that has a black metal floor stand for support. One of the kickstands has a cable recess to hide the power cord. Of course, it can also sit smoothly on the TV table, although this may prevent him from taking advantage of its uniqueness.

The frame of the Samsung The Serif is cloudy white plastic, and it is very flat on the top and bottom. As one of the decorations of the home, turning on the ambient mode of Samsung The Serif can make it always look like a painting.

The 2022 Samsung The Serif is a big improvement in picture quality. Thanks to 4K support and a QLED screen, the TV delivers clear, sharp images. But to be honest, other QLED TVs in this price range have slightly better contrast and color depth. Also, the QLED screen produces almost no disturbing reflections, but its viewing angle is rather limited and may distort the image if you sit at an off-angle.

Another notable aspect of Samsung The Serif is that it has a 100 Hz refresh rate, which gives you a smoother and more detailed TV motion picture. Of course, this Smart TV also supports HDR10, HDR10+ and ALLM which makes it an ideal gaming TV.

Samsung The Serif is a uniquely designed Smart TV that is also unique in its connectivity. It has four physical connection ports for HDMI and two USB ports for connecting external devices. This is no different from any other TV.
