Smart OS:  Tizen

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.

Conclusion

Mixed Usage

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.

Movies

This is an adequate TV for watching movies in a dark room. It has an excellent contrast ratio, so blacks appear black in a dark room, but it has only decent black uniformity and lacks a local dimming feature, so some clouding can be seen in dark scenes. Unfortunately, it can’t remove judder from any source.

TV Shows

The Samsung R4500 is a good TV for watching TV shows during the day. It has good reflection handling and decent peak brightness, so glare shouldn’t be an issue in most rooms, but the image degrades at an angle, so it isn’t great if you like to move around with the TV on.

Sports

The Samsung R4500 is a good TV for watching sports during the day. It has good reflection handling and decent peak brightness in SDR, so glare shouldn’t be an issue. Unfortunately, the image degrades when viewed at an angle, it isn’t a great TV for watching the big game with a group of friends.

Video Games

This is a good TV for playing video games. It has outstanding low input lag, resulting in a very responsive gaming experience, and it has a great response time. Unfortunately, it doesn’t support any advanced gaming features like FreeSync, and some motion artifacts can be seen, due to the backlight flicker.

HDR Movies

The Samsung R4500 is a decent TV for watching movies in HDR in a dark room. It has an excellent contrast ratio, resulting in deep blacks, but it has only decent black uniformity, and lacks a local dimming feature. It can display a wide color gamut, which is important for the latest HDR movies, but it can’t get very bright, so small, bright highlights don’t stand out.

PC Monitor

This is a great TV for use as a PC monitor. It has outstanding low latency and it supports most of the common resolutions, and can display chroma 4:4:4 properly in all of them, which is important for clear text. Unfortunately, the image degrades when viewed at an angle.
