If you want a feature-heavy yet budget-friendly Smart TV for a small or medium room, you must give the first priority to the 40-inch UN40F6400AF. You will get nearly everything on this Smart TV panel. First, the picture quality is truly top-notch. The Full HD 1080p screen resolution creates maximum number of pixel points on the screen by means of which all on-screen pictures look exceptionally high-standard. An image with this much resolution looks fully immersive and lifelike with no flicker effects. The Micro Dimming technology produces advanced picture contrast, color and detail. In turn, white spots look brighter and black spots become deeper, which ultimately brings an amazing TV viewing experience to the user. The Wide Color Enhancer Plus expands the color range by adding a lot more fresh colors to the basic ones. This is how more colorful images are formed on the screen. The Clear Motion Rate (CMR) of 480 is really an exceptional feature to facilitate smooth and judder-free fast motion pictures on the LED screen. The CMR technology uses all three display features such as frame refresh rate, image processor speed and LED backlighting, and optimizes the motion performance. Thankfully, this time you will get a higher value of CMR, i.e. CMR 480, which works better to eliminate the motion blur from fast action-packed sequences. The Eco Sensor is a great feature to adjust the screen brightness automatically with respect to the light intensity in the room. As a result, the overall energy management of the TV becomes stronger. The Game Mode is a fantastic inclusion particularly from gamers’ viewpoint. They get a faster and smoother gaming platform with little to no noticeable input lag.

Active 3D playback is another stand-out property. It’s amazing to view both 2D and 3D content on the Full HD 1080p display. Moreover, Samsung has provided with the 3D Converter programming that lets you convert 2D content into 3D and get the optimal TV viewing experience. The Smart Hub offers a number of different functionalities like seamless web browsing, S-Recommendation, tons of apps services and a lot more. The Smart Touch Remote is a sleek addition that works as a universal remote to control multiple connected devices. The built-in Wi-Fi connectivity ensures that detecting the network path is trouble. It helps detect the path and fetch the data automatically. The processor is dual core, so all online services are 2X faster.

Thanks to the Swivel stand, you can turn the TV screen up to 10 degrees to the left or right to have a direct view. You get 3 USB and 4 HDMI ports to connect your external devices and view your favorite content on the TV seamlessly. The ConnectShare Movie features allows you to just plug your USB devices and play the content directly without needing to install any extra equipment on the set. Similarly, the AnyNet+ feature establishes a better control over all connected HDMI compatible devices.

The audio system is programmed with sound-enhancement technologies like Dolby Digital Plus, DTS Studio Sound and DTS Premium Sound, so you get a loud sound output. Samsung has lowered the power consumption of this Smart TV, so it’s got an ENERGY STAR 6.0 Qualification. gives Samsung UN40F6400AF 4/5 stars.
