The Samsung UN50NU is part of the Televisions test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, TVs models like the UN50NU are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.
HD picture quality Evaluated using basic HD content (non-HDR). Based on objective tests and subjective evaluations by expert testers after TV is adjusted using standard picture controls to achieve the highest-fidelity image possible. Tested image attributes include detail, color accuracy, and contrast, using videos from a Blu-ray player, cable box, and professional broadcast equipment. All video content is played through the TVs HDMI inputs. Some tests are also performed via the TV USB input.
UHD picture quality Evaluated using basic, non-HDR, 4K-UHD content. (HDR content is tested separately) Based on objective tests and subjective evaluations by expert testers after TV is adjusted using standard picture controls to achieve the highest-fidelity image possible. Tested image attributes include detail, color accuracy, and contrast, using signals from a Blu-ray player, cable box, and professional broadcast equipment. All video content is played through the TVs HDMI inputs. Some tests are also performed via the TV USB input.
HDR HDR (High Dynamic Range) indicates how effectively the TV can reproduce the enhanced quality of HDR content. The benefits of HDR are best revealed on a display with a high peak brightness capability which allows them to present images with more realistic lighting and highlights. Very effective HDR can also reproduce fine gradations of shadow detail from black to white, and display a wider range of colors. Ineffective HDR presents images that are no better than regular standard dynamic range (SDR) TVs.

The 3 Best Samsung TVs of Reviews and Smart Features
In the infancy of smart TVs, Samsung was the leader in functionality and smart features. This isn't to say that they were very good, as it took quite a few years for Smart TV platforms to mature into something comparable to external set-top boxes. However, other companies have caught up to Samsung and offer similar all-around performance, like Roku TV or LG's webOS.
Samsung has constantly been updating its Tizen platform to make sure it competes with its competitors. In , they added voice capabilities to their remote and smart platform, making it easier to navigate through menus. The update featured a new, sleeker look with a 'Dark Mode' that isn't as bright as the white theme in older versions.
In , Samsung added their Bixby virtual assistant to most TVs except for some entry-level models. Bixby can integrate into Samsung's SmartThings smart home platform, allowing you to control compatible devices ranging from lights, outlets, door locks, and even your fridge.
The interface is very simple and easy to navigate. Everything is along a toolbar that appears at the bottom of your screen. You'll find downloaded apps here as well, and you can quickly access the different inputs and settings. The interface works well, and there are many animations; on lower-end TVs, these can be slow.
Unfortunately, Samsung's Smart Hub also shows ads on the home screen. It shows up in the same row as the installed Samsung Smart TV apps, and they can't be disabled.
You can opt out of personalized advertising in the settings, but that, unfortunately, only means that you'll see very repetitive ads instead of targeted ones.
Apps & Features
The app selection is pretty extensive nowadays. All the popular video and music services are available and more. Fortunately, the search function is quite good, and results come up very quickly. Like LG's webOS and Google TV on Sony TVs, Samsung TVs have an excellent selection of apps, and the vast majority of streaming services are available.
Voice Command was overhauled in , and they're pretty good now. Other smart interfaces were updated in to search for content, apps, and change settings, something Samsung has been able to do for a few years. Even more in-depth stuff like calibration settings are only a button press away, which is quite nice.
- Changing inputs
- Launching apps
- Basic online searches, including "What time is it?" or "How's the weather in New York?"
- Change some settings
It's also possible to search within apps, but only a few apps are supported at this moment. It isn't possible to search Netflix, for example, but it's possible to search YouTube.
Samsung updated their remote with the release of the TVs. It features the same buttons as remotes from previous years, except it has a redesigned body with brushed plastic on the bottom. There are quick-access buttons to popular streaming services and for your voice control. It's pretty minimal compared to traditional TV remotes, as you don't get a Numpad, but you still get navigation buttons. It's small and sleek-looking.
What sets this remote apart from others is that the QLED lineup comes with a solar-powered remote. This means that you can charge it via the solar panel on the back, and if that's not possible, you can still charge it via USB-C, but it doesn't come with a USB-C cable. The entry-level AU from has the same remote, but it uses disposable batteries instead.
This is less common now than in previous years, but Samsung TVs often have issues with Wi-Fi connections. They'll randomly stop functioning after leaving the TV off for a while and require the connection to be set up again, which is quite annoying.
TODAY'S BEST DEALS
The series sections of Samsung’s annual range refreshes have consistently impressed us in recent years, hitting a price-meets-performance sweet spot we’ve found hard to resist. Hopes are understandably high, then, for ’s UE50AU Especially as it delivers its inch 4K screen, extensive HDR support and excellent smart system for a mere £ / $ / AU$
It has to be said that this segment of the 4K TV market has started to get seriously crowded, and like all of Samsung’s ‘AU’ models, the 50AU doesn’t benefit from the brand’s QLED colour technology. Even so, history is definitely on the UE50AU’s side.
The Samsung UE50AU is currently priced at £ / $ / AU$ It sits between the UE50AU and UE50AU in Samsung's TV range.
The 50AU’s biggest competition in the UK is arguably from the up and coming Chinese brands Hisense and TCL. Hisense, in particular, has the excellent inch Roku R50AGTUK, while TCL recently impressed us with another Roku-toting bargain, the inch 55RPK.
The UE50AU delivers an instant design upgrade on its step-down series sibling by being much, much trimmer round the back. In fact, it’s the slimmest TV we’ve seen in its class - a fact it underlines by adorning that barely-there rear with a tasteful brushed finish.
Of course, most people we know will spend their time looking at their TV’s front, not its back. But if a ‘degree’ design really matters to you, then the UE50AU has got your back. And front.
Even the set’s desktop feet are more stylish than the norm, taking on an ‘ice-skate blade’ approach that makes them almost invisible when you’re viewing the screen straight on. In a triumph of ingenuity, moreover, these legs slot and click into place, rather than having to be screwed on.
The TV’s build quality is pretty respectable for such an affordable TV, too. It’s fair to say that by the time you’ve added to the mix an ultra-trim rear, a super-slim frame around the screen and a cool, minimalist finish, the UE50AU ends up looking like it’s worth comfortably more than it costs.
It builds on this premium feel further by shipping with two remotes: a standard button-heavy one, and a sleek ‘smart’ one that lets you perform all the day to day actions you’ll typically need via a much reduced button count.
The UE50AU is a native 4K TV that supports the HDR10, HLG and HDR10+ formats of high dynamic range video. There’s no support for the Dolby Vision HDR format because, well, that’s just the way Samsung TVs roll.
As you might guess from its slim design, the UE50AU is lit by an edge-mounted LED array. All of which is the same with Samsung’s cheaper AU Where things differ are in the UE50AU’s use of Crystal Colour technology, offering a wider gamut than the AU’s PurColour system, and its ability to shift around 70 nits or so more brightness. Both of these step-up features have the potential to be a pretty big deal when it comes to the Holy Grail of getting a decent HDR performance out of a very affordable LCD TV.
There’s a Crystal Processor 4K brain in place to drive the UE50AU’s promising panel, while three HDMIs, two USBs and the usual Bluetooth and wi-fi wireless systems are provided for connecting all your sources.
Samsung UE50AU tech specs
Screen type LCD w/ edge LED backlight
Operating system Eden (Tizen)
HDR formats HDR10, HDR10+, HLG
Optical out Yes
Dimensions w/o stand (hwd) 64 x x cm
One of the HDMIs supports eARC for pass-through of lossless Dolby Atmos soundtracks, but unfortunately none of the HDMIs support the 4K at Hz and/or Variable Refresh Rate feeds so beloved of Xbox Series X and PS5 owners. You do at least get automatic Game mode switching when the TV’s connected to a compatible source, though, as well as support for the ‘HGiG’ gaming HDR standard. We also measured a fantastically low input lag figure in Game mode of just ms.
Smart features are provided by Samsung’s redoubtable Tizen-based Eden system, which is as slick, effective and efficient here as it is on any of Samsung’s premium TVs. All the services most people will want are present and correct, including all of the key UK terrestrial broadcaster catch-up apps. It’s worth noting, though, that these apps aren’t packaged within a Freeview Play umbrella app as they are on many rival TVs. Again, as with Dolby, Samsung doesn’t want to play by Freeview Play’s rules.
For a brief moment, it looks like the 50AU’s pictures are going to be a chip off the impressive old Samsung mid-range block. Bright scenes look impressively punchy and vibrant for such an affordable TV for instance, especially when it comes to vivid reds and blues, and there’s precious little sign of the ‘bleaching out’ effect in peak bright HDR areas that we often see with affordable LCD screens. In fact, the screen resolves subtle colour shifts and changes unusually deftly for its price point.
Motion looks reasonably natural too, once you’ve swapped the over-enthusiastic, noisy-looking Auto Picture Clarity setting for a calmer Custom mode where Judder Reduction is set to around three or four. There does seem to be a little more residual resolution loss in areas of fine detail during camera pans than we’d typically expect from a Samsung TV, but overall it’s still a good effort.
The 50AU also excels with its upscaling of sub-4K content. It adds a seriously impressive amount of detail and sharpness to HD sources, producing much more ‘4K-like’ results than most affordable 4K TVs muster. What’s more, it delivers its excellent upscaling results without exaggerating noise or causing distracting side effects.
The 50AU’s problems begin when onscreen events turn dark. The screen’s black level response is really quite disappointing, leaving a very noticeable blue-grey shroud hanging over any dark or even mid-dark scene a film or TV show might contain. This immediately makes such scenes look unnatural, as well as compromising the tones of pretty much all dark colours and shades.
There are areas of extra clouding within the general greyness too, and none of the available contrast or backlight settings make enough of a difference to save the day. Dark scenes do retain a bit more shadow detail than you often see with affordable LCD TVs, but the cost in terms of black level response is much too high.
More unexpected disappointment comes with the 50AU’s sharpness – or, rather, its lack of sharpness – with native 4K sources. In a complete reversal of the situation with upscaled HD images, the 50AU’s native 4K playback actually looks quite soft, even by the standards of the budget TV market.
While some colours look beautifully vivid on the 50AU, others, especially ‘nature’ greens, can look a touch subdued, resulting in bright HDR footage sometimes looking uneven and inconsistent.
Finally in the negative column, the 50AU only supports extremely limited viewing angles, with colour saturation and especially black level response both plunging as soon as you get just a few degrees off axis.
Here, too, the 50AU flatters to deceive. At first listen it seems to produce a pleasingly wide soundstage, filled busily by lots of subtle detail. Certainly things feel more ‘hi-fi’ than you might typically expect from an affordable inch TV.
As soon as the going gets a bit tough, though, it quickly becomes apparent that the 50AU’s speaker system lacks both power and dynamic range – at least when it comes to bass. As an action movie scene starts to build up a head of audio steam, the 50AU suddenly gives up the ghost, flattening off into a thin, bass-light, rather harsh presentation that if anything loses rather than gains impact as the action heads towards its crescendo.
If everything we watched on TV happened to be bright, the 50AU would work just fine. Its pictures skew brighter than usual for such an affordable TV, and this joins forces with some serious colour punch to really sell the HDR dream when you’re watching really light images.
Unfortunately, though, the 50AU just doesn’t have the backlight control necessary to adapt itself successfully to darker moments, leaving them looking misty and unconvincing.

Should you shop the Black Friday inch TV deals now?
With so many Black Friday inch TV deals live right now, it begs the question, should you shop these early offers or should you wait until at least November when Black Friday truly drops? What about Cyber Monday? The reality is that retailers are offering super low deals on TVs as you read this, and they probably wont get any better. Even if they do, Best Buy is offering a Price Match Guarantee, while Amazon has extended the return window for holiday-bought items until January If you get something at a great price, and it goes on sale even lower, you can return it and rebuy or get refunded the price difference. Theres virtually no risk shopping the early Black Friday deals.
Not to mention, there are a lot of issues that may crop up or worsen as we get closer to the holidays. From materials shortages like the microchip shortage to supply chain issues, on to shipping delays because of an inundated shipping system, it means you may not get the items you want on time for the holidays, or even at all if theyre out of stock. We recommend shopping as early as possible, at least for what you know you want. If youre here looking over the best inch TV deals that might mean its time to finally upgrade your TV.
How to choose a inch TV
Before you jump right into your search for inch TV deals, make sure that this is actually the size you want. Choosing the right TV for the space you plan to put it in goes beyond just knowing that it will fit: Viewing distance and room acoustics also come into play. If you need some help with this, then check out our guide on how to figure out what size TV is best for the part of your home in which you plan to install it.
Once youve done that, then its time to get ready to start shopping inch TV sales but dont rush in blindly. You dont want to jump on a seemingly great deal just because its at or below your price target, only to discover that it doesnt have the features you want or that the software ecosystem isnt the best one for your setup. Your first step should be to set a budget and make a mental note to stick to it, with some wiggle room to make sure you get the best television for your home theater and the most value for your money.
The good news is that in the inch size bracket, 4K TV deals are plentiful. You can even find QLED TVs for less than $1, (more on this technology later) and many 4K LED televisions for less than $ That makes these inch TV deals a fantastic value for anybody who is looking to upgrade to a 4K smart TV for the first time, shopping for another set to add to a smaller room, or wanting a new television but doesnt want or have the space for a big-screen model.
Most bargain hunters will be perfectly happy with a standard 4K LED TV, which is the standard panel technology used in television display panels nowadays. All of the models youll find among these inch TV sales are smart as well, meaning that they come with built-in internet connectivity (usually both ethernet and Wi-Fi, allowing you to hook the television up to your local internet network either wired or wirelessly) and a pre-loaded operating system that lets you run common streaming apps like Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, and so on. Many TVs will even come with the most popular apps already installed so you can enjoy your content libraries after a short setup process. This precludes the need for any external streaming sticks or boxes.
Of course, these modern smart TVs are still perfectly compatible with cable and satellite boxes, as well as media devices like DVD/Blu-ray players and gaming consoles. Pay attention to how many HDMI ports a TV has before you buy, though. Some sets that are in the small- and mid-sized brackets (that includes inch TV deals) may not come loaded with that many HDMI ports, so if you plan to hook up multiple input devices to your television, look into this before you pull the trigger on a deal.
If you arent necessarily looking for the cheapest television you can find, and youre willing to spend a bit more for upgraded picture quality, then you should keep QLED TV deals on your radar as you shop through inch TV sales. This newer panel technology delivers increased color accuracy and deeper dynamic contrast, but its more costly. OLED TVs are also worth mentioning; however, these panels arent yet available at 50 inches. QLED TVs are pricier than standard LED TVs, while OLED sets are the priciest of them all.
Those looking for an upgrade but who dont want to pay an arm and a leg should definitely think about getting a QLED TV, which sits in a good middle ground between LED and OLED price-wise. If youre interested in OLED TV deals, however, youre not going to find them at this size youll have to move up to 55 inches for that, although that might be worth considering if youre a serious home theater enthusiast (in which case you may want to opt for a larger TV, anyway). You can read more about these upgraded panels in our QLED versus OLED TV guide.
