Samsung The Sero is a decent 4k TV with a unique feature that allows you to watch vertically-filmed content on a big screen. It has good visibility in bright rooms, decent viewing angles, and it upscales lower resolution content like cable TV and videos from social media sites well. Unlike most Samsung TVs, the Sero uses an IPS panel with a mediocre contrast ratio. The Samsung Sero runs on a simplified version of Tizen OS with reduced features, similar to the Samsung Q60T QLED.
This rundown provides our analysis on 8 third-party reviews. The sentiment scores, summaries, and key takeaways that we select are based on these reviews and may differ from the original publication.

The Samsung The Sero is a decent 4k TV with a unique feature that allows you to watch vertically-filmed content on a big screen. Its fast response time and low input lag make it a good option for gaming, but sadly, it has a 60Hz panel and doesn't support variable refresh rate (VRR) The Samsung Sero has decent viewing angles when it's in landscape mode, and is suitable for a small to a moderately large room.

The Samsung Sero TV uses the same Tizen smart TV platform as the best Samsung TVs. You'll get access to the likes of Netflix, Disney Plus, Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV Plus, Rakuten TV, YouTube, iPlayer, Britbox, All4, My 5, and more. Social media apps aren't natively supported on Tizen, meaning you're having to switch your gaze between the TV and the phone you're casting from. This is a set best suited to Android (particularly Samsung) smartphone owners, rather than anyone with an iPhone.

The Samsung Sero is the first TV designed with mobile users in mind. When your phone is paired, the Sero becomes an extension of your screen. While it's most seamless with a Samsung phone, iPhone users can use AirPlay to reflect their screens. The Sero's audio underwhelmed during my initial impressions.
