Samsung The Frame 2020 is an overall good TV that's designed to blend into your decor and to showcase beautiful works of art when the TV is idle. Contrast ratio and peak brightness are significantly improved in this 2020 model, making it a good choice for watching HDR content. Its exceptional contrast ratio makes it a fantastic choice for gaming in the dark, and the TV can deliver a good HDR experience thanks to its great color gamut and decent HDR peak brightness. Sadly, its viewing angles are just as poor and there's no local dimming.
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.



Sentiment Score[*] 57%
Reviewers from rtings have found the following[***]:
The Frame 2020 is a good TV for most uses. It delivers good picture quality for most content, and it provides an excellent gaming experience thanks to its low input lag and VRR support. Its VA panel has a high native contrast ratio, which is great for watching in dark rooms. Unfortunately, it doesn't have local dimming, and its poor viewing angles make it less suitable for wide seating arrangements.

The Frame uses a rectangular replaceable bezel that juts out slightly beyond the 60Hz, 10-bit, 3840 x 2160 (4K UHD) LCD panel. The back is completely flat, with a recess where the included, shallow-profile wall mount is attached. Connectivity includes four HDMI ports, two USB ports, ethernet, coaxial (for a TV antenna), digital optical (Toslink) audio output, and a 3.5mm RS232C jack for integration.

Reviewers from techradar have found the following[***]:
, and you will need to upgrade to a paid monthly subscription to get a wider variety of paintings and the like – but there's plenty of other background fodder to use without paying a penny. Art Mode uses around 30% of the power that streaming a movie on Netflix would, meaning it's not as eco-friendly as simply turning the TV off. Ambient Mode is also well worth a look, utilizing – you guessed it – ‘ambient' animations and customizable color gradients.

  • Good value for money
  • Dolby Atmos isn’t as good as some
  • No Dolby Vision or HDR10+
