Samsung QE49Q70R review

Key features
  • 49-inches
  • QLED
  • 4K Ultra-HD
Reviewed

On paper the Q70R range appears to be very similar to the cheaper Q60R QLEDs, but there's a big difference behind the screen. The backlight is full array, which should help improve contrast no end. Anything that can aid backlit TVs get to close OLEDs when it comes to contrast is a boon and it could make the 49-inch QE49Q70R (sometimes called the QE49Q70RATXXU) a TV to consider in 2019. Read our review to see just how much the difference that full array backlight makes to the overall quality.
