It has greater color accuracy

A major selling point of Quantum Dot technology is its propensity for achieving astonishing color accuracy. In essence, QLED is quite similar to LED TV technology, in that color is distributed with the use of LED light and the RGB particle. However, things change drastically with the inclusion of Quantum Dot particles.

When light hits the tiny quantum dot semiconductor particles (we're talking anywhere from a few to several nanometers in size) featured in QLED televisions, they emit incredibly accurate red, green or blue colors on screen. Color is determined by the size of the quantum dots.

In terms of how this affects your television viewing, the answer is simple: it allows for much greater accuracy when it comes to rendering colors, which means images are much closer to how things look in real life.

Coming back to our La La Land example scene from earlier, on the lit-up portions of the picture, the 2018 QLED images were bright and clear, while the OLED screens' appeared comparatively dim and muted skin tones had a slightly greener tinge, making the characters appear somewhat lifeless and unhealthy, and the dark areas of the screen were almost too dark, with less detail present in shadows.

While watching BBC documentary-series Planet Earth II, QLED's advantages became even more apparent. The greens of the rainforest appeared more vibrant and natural, with a real warmth becoming evident in the oranges and brown hues within the image. That warmth was notably less prominent on the OLED display.

It's one thing to look at an image and judge a TV's color by how aesthetically pleasing it appears to be, but the only way to really appraise its accuracy is to compare it to offscreen elements in the real world.

In an effort to put its color accuracy to the test, a Samsung rep placed a Pantone color card against the screen of the quantum dot-powered Q9F television to show how closely it matched the colors on the card (spoiler alert: the colors on each looked exactly the same). Next, the card was placed against the same image on an OLED display, revealing a completely different, darker shade entirely.

Even taking into account things like brightness and color settings, the evidence was fairly irrefutable QLED leaves OLED for dead in terms of color accuracy.
It is not good to lie.
Colour accuracy? What colour accuracy?
Almost everything above 100 nits are pushed to increase brightness (hoping for 'pop-out' effect) to the point where colour accuracy is thrown out the window.

As long as QLED maintains its current price, it will lag behind OLED in terms of demand.

At the 55-65" size, OLED presents good VFM locally.
For larger panels, LED based panels are still much cheaper.

As already mentioned in the thread the future of displays should be microLED.

Since its the same why spend so much on QLED? Get a tv with Nano Cell can already right?
Different brand has different design, color processor, OS interface, also different in panel design eg hard panel vs soft panel.

So finally, is buyer decision.

For example, if you need wall mount and do not want to have many cables going up to TV panel. Then QLED series is a good choice as only one fiber/cable up from control unit to panel and basically the control unit can be some distance from panel.

Quantum dot is nothing new. My 5 year old Sony w904A uses it. So please move on and focus on delivering microLed. Thanks.
Do you know Sony use Samsung panel?

Yes true, is buyer decision but spending so much on QLED that it’s nothing new like not value for money.

If one connect box is good, why only Q series has it? And not all Samsung models?

Different brand has different design, color processor, OS interface, also different in panel design eg hard panel vs soft panel.

Sounds a bit like a paid article. Sponsored trip for Techradar journalist to Samsung factory, must write good stuff.

Hardly a fair comparison done in some test lab.

By the time microLED becomes affordable, OLED tech would likely have matured to the point where burn-in, etc are a thing of the past.

Nevertheless, very exciting times. More competition, we win.

This video is quite a fair comparison. Plus, I really like his deadpan presentation style.

This guys expression is as dead as plasma technology

Precisely. This reviewer is definitely out of job if he were to come to sg to work. Not a moment of stirring up the interest of viewers to the products he was explaining. He was saying the obvious facts, LPPL.
