Samsung QN95B vs QN90B vs QN80B Review

In this year, Samsung has released their 3 models of Neo QLED series in the market including the Samsung QN95B, QN90B, and QN85B. You need to know, the major difference between their Neo QLED Series and traditional QLED series is on their backlight technology. As we have known, Samsung QLED TV uses a standard LED as their light-source while the Neo QLED TV use mini-LED that has a size about 1/50 of the size of standard LED as their light-source of their backlight. And since mini-LED is much smaller than standard LED, expected, the Neo QLED series can deliver brighter peak brightness and more precision local dimming.

Back to the topic, the Samsung QN95B is the top model of the Samsung’s 2022 4K LED TV lineup while the Samsung QN85B is the lowest model of the Samsung Neo QLED Series. Meanwhile, the Samsung QN90B sits between the two. And of course, the higher model, it has more complete features than the lower model that certainly makes its picture quality and performance is better than the lower models. But of course, with the same screen sizes, the higher series, it is sold more expensive than the lower model. With other words, the QN95B is sold more expensive than the QN90B and the QN90B is sold more expensive than the QN85B.

In the market, all of them are available on some screen sizes options. The good news, all of these premium TV are available on the most demand screen size including 55 inches (QN55QN95B vs QN55QN90B vs QN55QN85B), 65 inches (QN65QN95B vs QN65QN90B vs QN65QN85B), 75 inches (QN75QN95B vs QN75QN90B vs QN75QN85B), and 85 inches (QN85QN95B vs QN85QN90B vs QN85QN85B). Special for the QN90B, it even also comes in 43 inches (QN43QN90B) and 50 inches (QN50QN90B). So, what are their differences and which is better choice among them if we refer to their price to value ratio?

The Differences between the Samsung QN85B, QN90B, and QN95B

Design

All of these Samsung’s 2022 Neo QLED TV lineup has a sleek and modern design. From the front, their main frame looks very similar. All of them have a very thin bezel with the border size about 0.9 mm, helping them to blend with the décor. All of them also have a slim stand like the stand of monitor. This makes you don’t need a large table when you want to put them on the table. Nevertheless, although all of them use a slim stand, but the design of their stand is very different. The stand of the Samsung QN85B has hexagonal base, while the two have rectangle base. Although the QN95B and QN90B have rectangle base, but from the back, they look different.

If viewed from the front, the stand of the QN90B looks similar to the stand of the QN95B, when viewed from the back, back of the QN90B looks very similar to the back of the QN85B. Their back is mainly plastic and has horizontal etched line a textured brushed metal that give off a brushed aluminum look. There are also channels along the back and a space in the stand for basic cable management. The inputs are located on the left while the power input ais located at right center. Since their inputs are inset into the back of the TV, you will have a bit trouble to access their inputs when they are mounted on the wall.

QN95B One COnnect Box

On the other hand, the back of the Samsung QN95B looks different to the two others. It may be made of high-quality plastic like the back of the QN85B and QN90B, but it has a textured finish in a herringbone pattern. Unlike the Samsung QN85B and QN90B where their inputs are located on the back, its inputs are located in separated box called “One Connect Box”. So, practically, there is only a single cable runs from the TV to the One Connect Box, making the cable setup is more neat.

Image Processor

The other difference between the Samsung QN95B and the two is about their image processor. Both of the QN90B and QN85B are powered by Neo Quantum Processor 4K while the QN95B is powered by an upgrade image processor called “Neural Quantum processor 4K”. Sadly, we don’t know for sure about the difference between these processors. But we guest that performance of the Neural Quantum Processor 4K is more powerful than the Neo Quantum Processor 4K found on QN85B and QN95B.

Native Refresh Rate Panel

The Samsung QN95B is one of the first TVs that already has 144 Hz native refresh rate panel. This certainly makes it can properly play 144 Hz content. But sadly, there are not many content that have frame rate up to 144 Hz. On the other hand, like most of Premium TVs, the Samsung QN90B and QN85B have native 120 Hz refresh rate panel only. But this should not be a problem since most content that available in the market has frame rate of 120 Hz or lower.

Built-In Audio Setup

The other difference between these Samsung Neo QLED TVs is about their built-in audio setup. The Samsung QN95B as the top model has 4.2.2 channels with total audio output power of 70 watts.  On the other hand, the built-in audio system of the Samsung QN90B may also have 4.2.2 channels, but it only has total audio output power of 60 watts. The total audio output power of the Samsung QN85B actually is also 60 watts, but it only has 2.2.2 channels.

Panel Technology

Although all of them come with mini-LED backlight and quantum dot filter, but they come with different panel technology, especially for the QN85B. Both of the Samsung QN90B and QN95B use VA panel.  Meanwhile, except its 85 inches variant that also use VA panel, the Samsung QN85B comes with ADS panel that has similar characteristic to the IPS panel. Can be ascertained, with VA panel, the QN90B and QN95B has high contrast ratio that makes them can deliver deep black. As we have known, a TV with IPS panel usually has poor side viewing angle. However, this doesn’t apply for the QN90B and QN95B. Thanks to their anti-glare optical layer called “Ultra Viewing Angle”, their side viewing angle coverage is not inferior to a TV that use IPS or ADS panel. On the other hand, with ADS panel, the Samsung QN85B, it may have wide viewing angle coverage, but its contrast ratio is fairly low. Fortunately, it has great local dimming that can boost its contrast ratio significantly, so it can still produce deep black.

Samsung QN95B vs QN90B vs QN85B Side by Side Comparison

Dark Room Performance

Although the Samsung QN90B and QN95B use VA panel, but their native contrast ratio is relatively lower than most VA TVs, which is a bit higher than 3000:1. This is cause the use of an antiglare optical layer called “Ultra Viewing Angle” reduce their contrast ratio. Fortunately, both have excellent local dimming feature that can significantly boost their contrast ratio up to about 20000:1. As the result, both can produce very deep black. So, even if they are set in a dark room, black produced by them still looks really black. On the other hand, the use of IPS panel makes the Samsung QN85B have poor native contrast ratio, which is about 1100:1. Fortunately, it has local dimming features that is just as great as the QN95B and QN90B that can significantly boost its contrast ratio up to about 8000:1. This makes the QN85B Can still produce deep black. And although not as deep as the two others, black produced by the QN85B still look black at in all dark room.  Can be said that the QN85B is one of the IPS TVs with deepest black.

High vs Low Contrast

The image is only an illustration

Beside they can deliver deep black, all of them also have good black uniformity. When showing black scene window test with a white crossline at the center, without local dimming enabled, on the screen of the QN90B and QN95B, their screen appear a bit cloudy throughout. Meanwhile, on the screen of the QN85B, their screen even appears more cloudy than the two. Enabling their local dimming can reduce the cloudiness significantly. So, their screen looks very black and uniform overall. And thanks to the high number of dimming zones, there is only a bit of blooming around the white cross line at the center, which is good.

Combination of their deep black, good black uniformity, and great local dimming performance makes their performance in a dark room is great, even for the Samsung QN85B that use ADS panel. Dark scene displayed on their screen looks very accurate. Overall, performance of the QN95B and QN90B is not much different. And although not as good as the two, performance of the QN85B in a dark room is also good or can be said great for a TV with ADS panel.

Winner: QN95B and QN90B

Bright Room Performance

Discussing about their performance in a bright room, it certainly will not be separated from their SDR peak brightness and reflection handling. And thanks to the use of mini-LED backlight, all of them have incredible SDR peak brightness. With SDR real scene, the QN95B can get about 1000 nits, the QN90B can get about 1200 nits, and the QN85B gets about 950 nits. Meanwhile, with white window test, the Samsung QN95B and QN90B get their brightest peak brightness on 10 % white window test where the QN95B can get about 1850 nits while the QN90B get about 2100 nits. Nevertheless, their peak brightness is relatively consistent on 2% and 10% white window. On the other hand, the QN85B gets their highest peak brightness at 25% white window test, which is about 1000 nits and relatively consistent on 2%, 10%, and 25% white window test. And just like most TVs with local dimming, large bright scenes are dimmed considerably by the TV’s Automatic Brightness limiter (ABL). Nevertheless, on 100% white window test where they get the lowest, all of them can still get about 600 nits. This makes their brightness level variation is not very noticeable with regular content, which is great.

Besides have incredible SDR peak brightness, the Samsung QN95B and QN90B also have great reflection handling. The use of glossy coating on their screen significantly reduces the intensity of direct reflections. And combined to their outstanding SDR peak brightness, this certainly makes their performance in a bright room is great. This lets you to watch TV in any bright room without an issue about the glare, even if there are a lot of natural lights or windows in your room. However, just like a TV with Ultra Viewing Angle, there’s a rainbow-like effect that scatters across the screen. On the other hand, reflection handling of the Samsung QN85B is not as good as the two. Unlike the two that use glossy coating, the screen of the QN85B uses semi-gloss coating. It diffuses reflections across the screen a bit only, making them appear larger but less bright overall. Luckily, it has great SDR peak brightness, so as long as there is no light hits directly on their screen, you will not have an issue with a glare, even if you set them in a bright room with a lot of lamps.

Winner: QN90B

Side Viewing Angle

As typical of a TV that use ADS panel, the Samsung QN85B have good viewing angle coverage. On the other hand, although use VA panel that usually has narrow viewing angle coverage, but thanks to an antiglare optical layer called “Ultra Viewing Angle” both of the Samsung QN90B and QN95B also have good viewing angle coverage. All of them can maintain black level up to about 70 degrees off center. So, even if you watch TV from extremely side angle, black produced by them will look as deep as when viewed from the front and center. Nevertheless, in maintaining brightness level of images, the QN90B and QN95B that use VA panel precisely is better than the Samsung QN85B that use ADS panel. On the screen of the QN85B, the images just look dimmer started at about 35 degrees off center while on the screen of the QN90B and QN95B, the images just look dimmer started at about 45 degrees off center.

Ultra Vieiwng Angle

Meanwhile, in maintaining color accuracy, the Samsung QN85B is a bit better than the two overall. At certain angle off center, color will shift and look washed out. For the QN95B, color shift started at about 40 degrees and look washed out started at about 35 degrees. On the screen of the QN90B, color shift started at about 45 degrees and look washed started at about 30 degrees. While on the screen of the QN85B, color doesn’t shift, even from extremely side angle but still look washed out started at about 35 degrees.

Winner: Draw

Color Reproduction

The use of quantum dot filter makes all of these Samsung Neo QLED TV have wide color gamut. Their color coverage in DCI P3 color space is great. In DCI P3 xy color space, the Samsung QN95B covers about 90%, the QN90B covers about 94%, and the QN85B cover about 87%. Meanwhile, in DCI P3 uv, the QN95B can cover around 93%, the QN90B covers around 97%, and the QN85B can cover around 93%. Their color coverage in Rec.2020 may be not as wide as the OLED TV, but it is still wide enough to show most current HDR colorfully. But sadly, their color coverage in Rec.2020 is only decent. In Rec.2020 xy, the QN95B can cover about 65% only, the QN90B covers around 72%, while the QN85B cover about 63%. Meanwhile, in Rec.2020 uv, the QN95B can cover around 72%, the QN90B covers around 80%, and the QN85B covers around 72% of color space. Since their color coverage in Rec.2020 is limited, there may be some loss of fine details in some certain scenes. Fortunately, there is not much content that use this color space, so this should not be a problem. But this will be more of an issue if you’re looking for something future-proof.

Fortunately, their color volume is mainly limited by its incomplete color gamut. This means, they can display most color in their gamut at their entire brightness range fairly well. Dark shades of colors can be shown fairly well, as well as bright saturated color. And special for the QN95B, it cannot show bright colors as bright as they should be. However, this should not be a serious problem with normal content.

Meanwhile, the use higher level image processor makes the Samsung QN95B have better color gradient than the two. On the screen of the QN95B, there are still some little bandings in Red and Green, but this should not be noticeable with normal content.  Meanwhile, on the screen of the QN90B and QN85B, beside there is a bit more banding in shades greens of grays than the QN95B, there is also some noticeable banding in shades of grays. All of them actually have a feature that can used for reducing banding, which is “Noise Reduction”. But sadly, this feature only work well will low quality content, while with high quality content, this can cause some loss of fine details.

Winner: The QN90B is winner in color gamut, the QN95B is winner in color gradient

Motion Handling

All of these Samsung’s neo QLED TVs have excellent pixel response time, which is about 7 ms for the QN95B, about 8 ms for the QN90B, and about 10 ms for the QN85B. Ignoring their difference, their pixel response time is low enough to make motion looks smooth and clear on their screen. Following fast moving objects, there is only a short ghosting trail that should be hard to notice. Blur that may be visible is more caused by persistence than their response time. But as we have known, too fast response time also makes low frame rate content appear to more stutter like OLED TVs. On their screen, low frame rate content also still appear to stutter, but not as noticeable as the OELD TV that has nearly instantaneous pixel response time. Additionally, the image stuttering also can be solved by interpolating low frame rate content to higher frame rate or enabling BFI (Black Frame Insertion). And coincidence, all of them have these two features, so this should not be a problem.

Meanwhile, to dim their backlight, all of these Samsung QN95B, QN90B, and QN85B use PWN (Pulse Width Modulation) dimming system with the highest possible of dimming frequency is 960 Hz. This dimming frequency will be achieved when they are set in Movie mode and set the backlight below 50 for the QN95B, below 46 for the QN90B, and below 40 for the QN85B. In game mode with certain backlight setting mode, they also flicker at 960 Hz. Meanwhile, in most mode, their dimming frequency will drop to 120 Hz. All of these Samsung QN85B, QN90B, and QN95B also have an optional BFI (Black Frame Insertion) mode that can help to improve their motion appearance by reducing persistence blur. And that is good is that their BFI works well with both 60 Hz and 120 Hz content. This means, with 60 fps comes, their BFI feature will make their backlight flicker at 60 HZ and with 120 fps content, their BFI will make their backlight flicker at 60 Hz.

One of the major advantages of the Samsung QN95B as the highest model than the two lower models is about their native refresh rate panel. Just like most premium TVs, both of the Samsung QN90B and QN85B have native 120 Hz refresh rate panel. Meanwhile, the Samsung QN95B have native 144 Hz refresh rate panel, allowing them can play 144 fps content properly. It even is one of the first TVs that come with native 144 Hz refresh rate panel. Although they have difference in native refresh rate panel, but all of them support VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) technology that work well with wide range of refresh rate. No matter the resolution, for the QN90B and QN85B that has native 120 Hz refresh rate panel, their VRR can work well on frame rate range of 20 Hz to 120 Hz, while VRR technology of the QN95B can work well on frame rate range of 20 Hz to 144 Hz. And the other good point is that their VRR technology is compatible with FreeSync, GSync, and HDMI Forum VRR. This means, their VRR can work well with a lot devices that also support VRR like PS 5, X Box X Series, etc.

Winner: QN95B

Input

As their major connectivity, all of these Samsung’s 2022 neo QLED TVs are equipped with 4 HDMI ports. All of their HDMI ports supports almost of all HDMI features like HDMI 2.0, HDMI 2.1, HDCP 2.0, CEC, ALLM, etc. One of their HDMI Ports (HDMI 3) also cat as HDMI ARC that support eARC. This allows them can passthrough high quality audio content like Dolby Atmos, Dolby True HD, etc. That is not only that, their HDMI ports also can play properly any resolution at their refresh rate range including 4K@ 60Hz, 1440 @ 120 Hz, 4K @ 120Hz, etc. Special for the QN95B, beside it supports what the QN90B and QN85B support, its HDMI ports also work well with 144 fps content including 1080p @ 144Hz, 1440p @ 144 Hz, and even 4K @ 144 Hz.

Meanwhile, discussing about their input lags in Game Mode, all of the Samsung QN90B, QN95B, and QN85B have excellent input lags. No matter the resolution, with 60 fps games, their input lag is about 11 ms. Meanwhile, with 120 fps games, their input lags is about 6 ms. Special for the QN95B, their input lag with 144p fps games is about 6 ms, no matter the resolution of the games. With their low input lags, this allows you to play any games responsively without delay, even if you play 60 fps games where their input lag is a bit higher.

Samsung QN95B vs QN90B vs QN85B Performance

Movies

All of the Samsung’s 2022 4K Neo QLED TV are great TVs for watching movies in a dark room, even for the QN85B that use ADS panel. Basically, their native contrast ratio is relatively low, especially for the QN85B that use ADS panel. But thanks to their excellent local dimming feature, all of them can deliver deep black and have good black uniformity, making dark scene of images looks have a lot of fine details, even if they are set in a dark room. Additionally, their local dimming can also do a great job in minimizing blooming, so there is only a bit of blooming around small bright object, which is good for a movie with subtitle. That is not only that, the Samsung QN85B, QN90B and QN95B also can do a great job in handling judder. So, no matter the source of movies, you will enjoy them with judder-free. And their excellent motion handling lets you to watch fast action movies with smooth and clear motion. And their great 4K Up-scaling engine allowing you to enjoy low resolution movie like DVD or Blu Ray movies in 4K resolution with the quality is not much different to native 4K.

But as we have discussed above, their fast response time cause movie appear to stutter. Although it can be reduced by enabling their BFI mode or interpolating them to higher frame rate, but the images stuttering cannot be removed completely.

Overall, Performance of the Samsung 4K Neo QLED TVs when used for watching movies are great. But compared between them, performance of the QN95B is better than the two others thanks to its higher contrast ratio and better black uniformity. Meanwhile, between the QN90B and QN85B, the QN90B is better than the QN85B.

Winner: Samsung QN95B

Sports

For watching sports in a bright room, their performance is also equally great. Both have excellent response time and combined to their BFI mode, this makes fast sport appears smoothly and clearly on their screen. Meanwhile, combination of their incredible SDR peak brightness and excellent reflection handling also allows you to watch sports in most bright rooms without distracting by the glare. Additionally, all of them also have good gray uniformity. So, sport with large field like hockey or baseball will look well on their screen without dirty screen effect. Although the QN90B and QN95B use VA panel, but they have good viewing angle coverage thanks to their antiglare optical layer called “Ultra Viewing Angle”. And as typical of ADS TV, the QN85B also have wide viewing angle coverage. This ensure all of you will get the best viewing when you watch a big game together with your friend or family.

Overall, all of these Samsung TVs have great performance when used for watching sports in most bright room. But compare among them, the Samsung QN90B is the best thanks to its higher SDR peak brightness and better reflection handling. Below it, there is Samsung QN95B where its performance is not much different to the QN90B. And then followed by the QN85B. Although not as good as the two of its higher models, its performance is still great for watching sport.

Winner: Samsung QN90B

Video Games

All of the TVs are also great TV for playing video games. Beside they have excellent picture quality and great motion handling that makes image of games appears excellently, on their screen, all of them have low input lags in Game mode. So, even though you play fast paced games that require fast reflect, your act in your keyboard or gamepad will be still in synch with what you see on their screen. That is not only that, both also have a lot of features that help improve their gaming experience. Both have HDMI 2.1 that allows you to play high quality games supported by modern game console like PS 5 or Xbox X series. All of their HDMI ports also support ALLM, so you need to change their mode to Game mode manually because they can automatically switch to game mode once there is a signal from game console. All of them also support VRR technology that can work properly on wide range of refresh rate. Additionally, their VRR is also compatible with most popular gaming features like FreeSync, GSync, and HDMI Forum. This ensure their VRR can work properly with any kind of game consoles that also support VRR.

Meanwhile, compare between them, the Samsung QN95B is the best. It has native 144 refresh rate panel that allows you to play high frame rate games up to 144 fps. Below it, there is Samsung QN90B and then the QN85B.

Winner: Samsung QN95B

HDR Performance

HDR Performance of them is equally great. All of them support most of HDR formats including HDR10, HLG, and HDR10+, giving you to watch HDR content in some option. Additionally. They can also deliver deep black and have excellent local dimming feature, allowing them can show shadow of HDR images with a lot of fine details, even for the Samsung QN85B that uses ADS panel. There may be still “crushing black”, but overall, shadow of HDR images looks excellent on their screen the way they should in HDR.

Just we have discussed above, all of them also have good color coverage in DCI P3 color space and good color volume overall. And since most current HDR content are mastered in DCI P3, this certainly makes HDR Content displayed on their screen looks colorful and life-like. That is not only that, they all also have good color gradient, allowing you to enjoy HDR content with smooth color gradient and without a lot of noticeable banding. However, if you’re looking for something future-proof, they may be not too future proof, this is caused their color coverage in Rec.2020 is not very good, specially for the QN85B. But since there are not many content that mastered in Rec.2020 for this now, of course, these TVs are still worth buying.

All of the se Samsung QN95B, QN90B, and QN85B also have outstanding HDR peak brightness. The two high models can get the brightest peak brightness at 2% and 10 % white window where the QN95B get about 1750 nits while the QN90B gets about 2000 nits. On the other hand, the QN85B gets its brightest peak brightness on 10% and 25% white window test, which is about 100 nits. On 2% white window, it can still get about 900 nits.  And just like their SDR peak brightness, their HDR peak brightness dimmed significantly once the bright area increase, up to 100% white window test, peak brightness of the QN90B drops to about 650 nits, the QN95B drops to about 580 nits, and the QN85B drops to about 600 nits. With their HDR peak brightness, small highlight standouts extremely well, especially for the QN90B and QN85B.
