Once the new series of Smart TVs from Samsung was on the market, we have a wide range from which we can choose the right TV as we can see here .
Today we’ll present the Samsung F6400 3D Smart TV.
Samsung F6400 is situated in the average range of the F series, available with models from 32 ” up to huge 60F6400 with a diagonal of 60″
This model replaces the Samsung ES6100 series (model 2012) and comes with the following options:
– Smart TV with wired or wireless Internet access
– Active 3D TV as the previous series. Supports any type of 2D-3D Conversion
– 200Hz CMR, which provides improved image clarity
– Extremely low consumption and debt panel’s backlight completely restored.
Samsung F6400 has a classic design , very similar with the last year series .The frame is slightly thinner and connections have been repositioned for a easier access (connecting via HDMI or TV antenna connection).TV’s control can be by remote control or with a multidirectional joy-stick placed behind Samsung F6400.
The stand retains classic design using 4 points that we know from last year’s 7000 and 8000 series .
Compared with last year’s models, Samsung F6400 does not seem to bring major improvements on the image.A little extra seems to be on corner areas where the black screen has been improved and the 200Hz CMR provides a clearer picture, though on some live shows an impression of too fast image still appears and some separator effect for the eye may occur.
Fortunately the CMR can be adjusted or disabled to get a perfect picture .Contrast is very good, and the palette of colors was extended, on the test images we have colors more natural in pleasant tones.
We tested the glasses of F6400 and we can say that nothing has changed from the previous series .We have mostly the same effects , the 3D glasses are the same and the conversions from 2D and 3D are acceptabile.If you watched the last year models from theese TV series and loved how 3D was rendered then Samsung F6400 is an OK choice.
Here Samsung F6400 brings major improvements that facilitate access to applications and Internet.
First, compared to last year’s models, or models from the rivals this year such as Philips, Samsung brings a new SmartHub with hundreds of useful new applications which cover a way bigger area of users.
From games, news, videos to social apps and online TV channels that run perfectly.
Working speed is much improved , we played in the F6400 TV’s smart menu and it moves as well as a tablet or smartphone.
Also the interface is completely changed with large icons, and menus that slide left or right as phone menus that we are used to.Internet connection is perfectly made and playback of Full HD videos through live streaming is no longer a problem, the facility is tested on Youtube and other similar sites.
Besides the redesigned interface the TV incorporates a powerful dual-core processor that allows running several applications simultaneously at the same speed .
Samsung F6400 supports mouse and keyboard to the Smart TV, or we can use a smartphone with a special application available on Android and iOS.
Share function has been improved ,F6400 can share files with any other Samsung device, and with the new Galaxy S4 offers new options among which a very interesting one is Screen Mirroring -what we see on the phone is simultaneously displayed on the TV.
That being said we think Samsung F6400 can be a good choice in medium LED Smart TV class from this year, but of course we have to review similar models from rivals Sony and LG.
