Originally priced at $600, the 4K smart TV has an impressive 55-inch curved display with a full 4K Ultra HD resolution, vivid colors and deep black levels. It produces exceptional picture quality with support for HDR (High Dynamic Range) movies and TV shows for the best 4K viewing experience around.
"This is the first curved television I have owned and it is excellent," shared a satisfied Walmart shopper. "The picture quality is great and so is the sound. I am very impressed with the picture quality. The apps such as Netflix and Hulu work perfect. I would and will recommend this television to anyone."
Curved vs. flat
In case you were wondering, the difference between a curved TV and a flat TV is, of course, the shape. While both can deliver impressive picture quality, a curved TV makes you feel like you’re in the middle of the movie, show or video game. That’s why curved TVs are considered more immersive compared to their flat counterparts, even if the comparisons are slight.
Additionally, the curve also makes the 55-inch 4K TV seem bigger than it actually is. The 4K resolution and HDR (High Dynamic Range) setting draws you in — even if you’re not sitting close to the screen. And shoppers say it's like being in the movie theater too.
"...The curved screen does make a subtle difference in viewing. I love it," raved a five-star Amazon reviewer. "I feel like I am in the movie or in a nice theater watching it. There is very little glare and I have a lot of low lighting in the room..."
And shoppers also say it rivals competing brands. "...Actually less glare than my old Sony and the other TVs in the house...," continued the reviewer.
It’s no slouch in the audio department either. The sound quality on this Samsung Curved 4K TV is world-class — so immersive and rich. "Beautiful TV! The sound and picture is fantastic," reported a savvy Amazon shopper. "It connected easily to our Wi-Fi. We are extremely satisfied with this TV. I have wanted a curved screen for a long time. So happy to have this TV."
Streaming apps galore
Plus, it’s also Wi-Fi-enabled with smart home support for Alexa, Google Assistant, as well as Samsung’s Bixby and video streaming features included. Translation: You don’t have to buy a separate video streaming device to watch Netflix, YouTube, HBO Max, Apple TV, Hulu, Disney+, Paramount+, Peacock and much, much more. It’s baked in the cake and ready to go as soon as you turn it on. And shoppers love that it's great for all sorts of entertainment, including gaming.
"I use this primarily for my computer for both gaming, surfing and entertainment," added another five-star Amazon reviewer. "The apps installed make it easy to watch Netflix, Hulu and Prime TV with little to no switching time between inputs. The picture quality is great, just what i have come to expect from Samsung..."
The Samsung Curved 4K TV includes three HDMI ports for a Blu-ray player or video game console, along with dual USB ports, so you can bring your own media to the party. Some shoppers even use it as a gigantic computer monitor. "The TV is great as is but it really shines when used as a monitor," wrote a happy Amazon shopper. "...With the curved TV, I can see the whole screen clearly in close proximity..."

A committee of U.S. Catholic bishops is getting to work on a policy document that has stirred controversy among their colleagues before a word of it has even been written. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops overwhelmingly approved the drafting of a document “on the meaning of the Eucharist in the life of the Church” that some bishops hope will be a rebuke for politicians who support abortion rights but continue to receive Communion. The 168-55 vote to proceed, vehemently opposed by a minori

OTTAWA — Prime Minister Justin Trudeau voiced his support for Harjit Sajjan on Friday after opposition parties banded together in the House of Commons to censure the embattled defence minister. The prime minister used part of his opening statement during his first COVID-19 update in a week to tout Sajjan’s previous service as a police and military officer before accusing the Conservatives of slandering the minister. “We know there's still much more to be done to protect all of those who choose t
A coal company that was denied an application to build an open-pit mine in Alberta's Rocky Mountains says it's considering its legal options.

The company that owns the mine said Friday it's considering the 680-page report to better understand its conclusion. Riversdale Resources said in a state

NEW YORK (AP) — As COVID-19 restrictions lift in the U.S., many are reacquainting with friends and loved ones, attending parties, booking vacations and celebrating a return to normal. But for Amanda Kloots, 39, a fitness instructor and TV personality, it's not a return to the life she had before the pandemic, and it never will be.

NAIROBI, Kenya (AP) — Ethiopia’s leaders in closed-door talks with a European Union special envoy earlier this year said “they are going to wipe out the Tigrayans for 100 years,” the envoy said this week, warning that such an aim “looks for us like ethnic cleansing.” The remarks by Pekka Haavisto, Finland's foreign minister, describing his talks with Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed and other ministers in February are some of the most critical yet of the Ethiopian government's conduct of the
U.S. Catholic bishops overwhelmingly approved the drafting of a “teaching document” that many of them hope will rebuke Catholic politicians, including President Joe Biden, for receiving Communion despite their support for abortion rights.

The case will be heard on Tuesday. Rankin cautioned it doesn't mean the province should let down its gua

PARIS (AP) — The double-cheeked embrace that was a customary greeting in France before the coronavirus pandemic saw it largely abandoned as a potential kiss of death is back with a presidential seal of approval. French President Emmanuel Macron made the return of “la bise” all but official Friday by giving warm cheek-to-cheek embraces to two World War II veterans at an award ceremony. The French leader wore a face mask. The veterans — Leon Gautier, 98, and Rene Crignola, 99 — did not. But both s
