Good Brand

Samsung has good average ratings for its 4K and 8K TVs as well as across its entire TV range compared to other manufacturers.

Supports Smart TV

The Samsung UE55KS8090 supports smart TV. Most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that were released in the last year also support smart TV.

Other TVs which support smart TV currently available which you might want to look at include the Samsung UN65KS9000 which has better reviews.

Chart Edit

Very Thin

At only 40.8 millimeters, the UE55KS8090 has a quite thin depth compared to most of the other 4K and 8K TVs that were released in the last 12 months. Televisions that are a comparable age to the UE55KS8090 have depths of between 35mm and 99mm.

We compared this television to all the other 40.8mm thick TVs and we think the Samsung UE55KS8000 (£950.00) which has better reviews is also worth considering.

TVs with a thicker depth that might be worth looking at include the Panasonic TX-58DX700 (£640.00) (41mm), or the Samsung UE65KS8000 (£1,640.00) (40.8mm).

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Samsung UE55KS8090 does not have a built-in camera, although it is worth noting that most of the other recently released 4K and 8K TVs also do not have a built-in camera.

We compared this television to all the other TVs with a built-in camera and we think the Samsung UE78HU8500 (£4,749.00) which is also higher rated is also worth considering.
