SAMSUNG 55-inch Class QLED Q70T Series – 4K UHD Dual LED Quantum HDR Smart TV with Alexa Built-in (QN55Q70TAFXZA, Model)

The Samsung Q70T QLED TV (QN55Q70TAFXZA) lives up to the company’s strategy: Build cheap sets, but cut some corners to do so and expect the savings to make up for less performance. Its lowest offering was seen in the Samsung Q60T QLED TV, which suffered from this approach.

As an upgrade, the Q70T finds a better balance, though it faces stiff competition from cheaper models including the TCL 6-Series and Sony’s X900H series.

The most important change in the new QN55Q70TAFXZA we’re reviewing is the price; It costs less than the similar 55-inch Q70R but still costs more than the TCL 6-Series Roku TV (R635). The only tradeoff for that price cut is the change from the dual-LED backlight to the full-array backlight on last year’s Q70R.

Plus, its sound is weak, but unlike the Q60T, Samsung didn’t downgrade the processor on the Q70T, which helps keep the overall picture fairly high.

Samsung Q70T QLED TV Models

Our review unit is the 55-inch Samsung Q70T, which works on the bottom, however, Samsung offers models in 65, 75, 82, and 85 inches. All models have similar designs and features.

Among these models, the Samsung Q70T QLED is sort of identical, offering an equivalent range of ports, the same 4K resolution, 4K resolution, and HDR support on the same QLED display. In fact, they use a dual backlight and run a similar processor.

Therefore, we expect nearly identical performance on all sizes, as well as strengths and weaknesses similar to the 55-inch model used in this review.


Samsung has designed a simple, yet elegant QLED TV, and the Samsung Q70T is no exception. The 48.4 x 9.6 x 30.9-inch unit doesn’t take up a lot of space on the TV stand and doesn’t look attractive when hung on the wall. There are thin bezels all around the QLED screen and the dark gray plastic enclosure looks great, not like the cheap delicate enclosures we see.

If you don’t prefer to hang your TV on the wall, the Samsung Q70T comes with boomerang-style legs that easily and securely clip to the bottom of the unit. If you need to support it, you can use a standard 400 x 400-millimeter VESA mount or Samsung’s Mini Wall Mount, a handy accessory when you need to measure how far apart your TV is from the wall.

Port options are excellent: four HDMI ports, one with eARC support and one that supports HDMI 2.1, which is available on the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5. In addition, it has an RF antenna input but does not support legacy technologies such as composite video. If you’re not wired, you can connect a soundbar via Optical Digital Audio and it also has Bluetooth for wirelessly connecting the headphones.


Our review unit, the Samsung Q70T QN55Q70TAFXZA delivers a sharp picture with overalls of vivid colors. You’ll be impressed by the crisp details when watching the moves — like when watching Avengers War on 4K Blu-ray, the light from Thor’s fingers is more noticeable than ever before. Likewise, in My Octopus Teacher, the giant breaking waves and underwater scenes come through in excellent detail.

The Samsung Q70T produces deep blacks and the contrast colors are simply impressive. All of this can be attributed to HDR10+ support (but not Dolby Vision), which helps it deliver vibrant colors. The Samsung QN55Q70TAFXZA maintains good color stability from a variety of angles, something the less premium Samsung Q60T can’t manage, though you’ll notice some negligible dimming at the edges.

For gamers, the Samsung Q70T handles action sequences extremely well; Just like the Battle of Wakanda in Infinity War, without pixel loss or blurring. During gameplay on the Xbox One S, the panel switches to Game Mode and handles the race at 200 MPH even in Forza Horizons, but the background isn’t as crisp. Similarly, while playing Call of Duty, the focus of the action was sharp but the background is not.

Smart Features

Like all other Samsung QLEDs, the QN55Q70TAFXZA runs on the same Tizen platform. It comes with a large number of apps – Netflix, Prime Video, Hulu, and Apple TV that come pre-installed. It’s simple to set up the TV via on-screen prompts, or you can download the SmartThings app to make everything easier. Either way, you’ll need to create a SmartThings account to use all of the available features.

Another area where the Samsung Q70T excels over its predecessor is its voice assistant options, allowing it to include Samsung’s Bixby, Amazon Alexa, and Google Assistant as options, whereas the older model only had Bixby.

The remote remains unchanged – Samsung’s standard wand-style remote, which is comfortable in the hand and provides easy access to the things you want to do most, like adjusting volume and going to the home screen. You also have a play/pause button, channel changer, microphone for the voice assistant, and shortcut to ambient mode.

Our Rating | Excellent

The Samsung Q70T QLED TV (QN55Q70TAFXZA) is an excellent QLED with vivid colors, brilliant black levels, and sharp images at a good price compared to competing TV sets.


  • Crisp picture and vivid colors
  • Deep black levels
  • Multiple voice assistants


  • Some dimming at edges
  • Weak audio


The Samsung Q70T QLED TV is an excellent QLED with vivid colors and brilliant black levels. Like its siblings in the Q70T range, the 55-inch model we reviewed produces crisp 4K images, is bright enough to view during the day, and is a great option for gamers who need a fast set it occurs. And, it costs much less than the 2019 model, which means it should be a great option if you’re shopping for a midrange QLED TV.

But the competition just cannot be ignored. TCL has a 6-Series Roku TV (R635) which is much cheaper and offers better color accuracy and a much shorter lag time. It remains our top pick in this price range. But big brand names sometimes matter, and if you’re after Samsung’s looks and want the same cachet of brands, the Samsung Q70T QLED TV (QN55Q70TAFXZA) TV is a fairly affordable set that will cover most of your needs.
