The motion handling of the Samsung R4500 is good. It has a very fast response time, so there is only a very short blur trail behind fast-moving objects. But it may appear irrelevant for someone for this, not a big deal though. It supports motion interpolation up to 60 Hz and has a Black Frame Insertion feature to make the image crisper, but it does not work very well.

The Samsung R4500 interface is easy to use and intuitive for most new users. Unfortunately, it is not very smooth as the animations can get stuttery. It has a large selection of apps to choose from and it is not as fast as the interface the higher end models have.
The Samsung’s App Store has an abundance of apps to cover any need. The most common apps like Netflix, Youtube, Amazon Video etc. are preinstalled, but you can download many more.
The interface is easy to use, and it is very quick to access most features or change the settings. The interface itself is smooth, with no obvious issues when browsing, but it sometimes hangs a bit when launching apps.

The Samsung R4500 is a mediocre TV for mixed usage with a decent picture quality. Dark room performance is poor due to the low native contrast ratio, so it is not a good choice for watching movies or HDR content. It has good reflection handling, but the brightness is not enough to fight bright room glare. The small size and decent viewing angles make it a good choice for watching TV shows or sports in places like a kitchen, where you also do other work.
