suddenly it turns on without any touch... trying to get their support didn't fix the problem. The remote control is a nightmare. one of the app is not working smoothly and not sure why.
Customer support is a joke.

Worst TV ever
The Tv sounds fluctuate very loud to minimum without any input after watching for 20 -25 minutes.The loud sound issue is causing problem with my kids waking up at night and we no longer can use tv after 7pm.I have found now screen bleeding issue too recently.After sending numerous emails,calls and chats Samung sent technician to check the tv who did 5 minutes check and sent report to samsung that the tv is ok.I have made it very clear that issue is noticed only after watching tv for 20-25 minutes in my emails/messages whwn i reported.How can so...meone just check for 5 mins and declare tgat the tv is ok. Then they came back and ask to send video of issue ,which i did after number of days effort.After weeks they said the video is unsatisfactory and said to send with volume levels.It is next to impossible as the loud noise goes up and down in short period of time.I have no other option than to seek ombudsman assistace or conumer affairs now.then might need to throw in bin.The tv is just 6 months old and issue was reported after just 3 months.I will not buy any samsung product and they treat me like criminal.

Unusable brand new
We bought this tv to watch stan, play the nintendo switch on and play the apps "Anime lab" and "Crunchyroll" (anime watching apps). We don't watch free to air tv at all.
We got the tv, set it up, and immediately found like all things samsung, it was FULL of bloatware apps. Apps that run automatically that you can't disable or delete.
The tv AUTO PLAYS their own samsung apps and doesn't allow you to delete them or disable them. If you do, it just moves down the list and autoplays the next thing...
We googled how to fix this issue as we weren't...

Looks Great, Works great.. when it works. 3 months old, dead panel. Samsung Support woefully slow
After the last 10 years of growing through the range of 55", 65" and 70" LG TV's and with the 70" LG giving up the ghost after only 5 years (1st repair was after only 2 years) I thought it time to look elsewhere.
The choice was between Sony or Samsung and reviews on both were generally favourable. In the end it came down to the better sale price of the Samsung.
For the last 2 months I have been enjoying almost everything about the TV. Intuitive interface in the software, easy install of the apps (although Samsung TV app is woeful) and gives m...e access to all the latest streaming and FTA catchup services. The interface was quick, remote was simple (although I was missing the LG magic want pointer..) and the picture quality was good. Overall, I was quite happy with the shift to Samsung. That is until something goes wrong. And it went wrong so early too - only 3 months from new. In hindsight I should have gone to the point o1f purchase (JBHifi) for them to rectify the situation, but you would think if you went direct to the manufacturer things would happen more quickly, no..? Well, no.... Service guys (ie NOT Samsung) were quick to arrive and suss the problem as a dead panel and then handed the situation back to Samsung.... and things went quiet.

DSE BLEEDING ON 2020 QLEDS BEWARE
Pictures always speak louder then words .
Just unboxed my brand new Q70T i have a strange square box in the middle if there screen the far right looks brighter then the rest of the TV not to mention the bleeding..... apparently this is a standard issue with these models and you may go through several replacements ( see attached)
Also good luck with dark movies might aswell be watching all black with brightness 100 percent as there is no local dimming you can't see a thing.
The speakers are also terrible so don't get excited about them.. You will need a soundbar.
I called samsung and they want to send a tech out ? It's less then 1 day old out the box no thank you!
I highly regret my purchase and have just wasted my time and money.

Massive changes in sound and TV now dead within 3 months
I noticed since I bought it that there were massive differences in the volume of the sound, even while watching someone announcing the news. The TV failed only within 3 months of buying it. It won't even turn on anymore.

I bought the Q70T 65 inch television in august 2020 and was happy with it.
Though recently we turned it on and it appeared to be damaged.
We have just worked out it must have been our 3 year old that has done the damage with a little hollow timber ball.
I am really surprised that this was enough to damage the screen on the inside ( the outside is not damaged).
It’s very disappointing after saving up for the new television to now have to pay just over $1000 for the repair.
Granted Samsung has offered to pay
25 percent of the repair.
I would like to ask Samsung if they may be able to chip in 50 percent up from the 25percent offered as I feel like this would be meeting in the middle....Yes it isn’t a manufacturer fault thoughI wouldn’t have bought the television if I new how easy it was to damage the screen. Maybe not a great option if u have young kids.

Great TV. Apart from the massive clouding and flash lighting issue they won’t fix.
Brand new 75” Q70T Samsung bought from Harvey Norman.
The same day it arrived, I noticed bad bad bad flashlighting/ backlight bleed/ clouding across the entire screen (Similar but not quite as bad as another poster on here).
Samsung arranged for their techs to come out after I showed them how bad the issue was from the photos I had taken. I had also showed the tech company in advance and they put a new panel on order after seeing the proof. When the techs arrived, they checked out the TV (middle of the day with abundant natural light floodi...ng into the room) and said it was within standards. Despite showing them the photos and pleading my case, that surely Samsung could not agree that this is of acceptable standard for the Australian marketplace, they left. In my opinion, if this is how the unit works, (and Samsung have indeed said this unit is within the standard they accept), it’s completely unfit for the Australian market. This tv is only watchable during the day. At night, it’s too distracting and infuriating.

Dead pixel after 2 months operation.
Brilliant picture and features but all this is fine on paper and in principle so long as it functions. However after 2 months use, some pixels died and the bottom lower half of the screen had been compromised. Couple this with Samsung Australia’s poor and slow customer response, then I give this TV and Samsung experience 1 Star. This was also a replacement for a earlier Samsung TV that died after 13 months usage. Fool me once... shame on me I guess.

Fantastic Smart TV
Finally upgraded to a well known brand/manufacturer and have not regretted it, just plugged it in, instructions so easy to understand, everything including the apps that we needed was there, wireless connectivity so easy, takes awhile to get use to the remote control.

Samsung 75" Q70T
Had a few TV's over the years and recently updated or 5 year old 65" Panasonic LCD to new Samsung QLED Q70T, its awesome, fantastic picture and set has many features, look forward to viewing it each night. Some on forums went on about how many nits it has (whatever they are) others gave rave reviews and just a few not, but I don't care its a super clear and sharp TV. Bloke next door liked it so much he now has one too!.

Advertisements on Samsung TVs that can't be removed
Bought this TV approx 6 weeks ago and have noticed when you press the home key, advertisements come across the bottom of the home screen. I have contacted Samsung and the response was "the advertisements that you are seeing is a feature of the smart hub with the apps developer". I asked how to remove them and the response was they can not be removed. I am assuming this must be on all their TVs.
Be aware when you pay a lot of money for their TVs you are also buying their advertisements.

Poor Samsung Customer Service for Faulty TV
Bought the 65” Q70T direct from Samsung and had it delivered on 24 July. The delivery person kindly set up the tv for me. That evening I noticed a shadow on the screen. I chatted with Samsung online help desk who stepped me through Picture Quality tests and reset. No luck in removing the shadow. I was instructed to call the Service Centre during business hours. I called the following Monday and ran through the same picture test and reset. Screen was still showing a shadow and now I noticed that a pixel was broken. I requested a return and repla...cement TV. I was told that the issue would be expedited and a replacement sent within 24 hrs. The faulty TV was picked up yesterday (5 Aug) and the logistics company is telling me that the return will only be process on the 7th or 10th of August! I have placed multiple calls to Samsung Service desk (most recently yesterday) who said that they’d expedite my case given I’ve had such a bad experience. If this TV worked, I’ve give a rating of 5/5... however the fact that it was faulty straight out of the box and slow customer service means that this has been a very poor experience. Rated 1/5. Update 10/8 - was open to Samsung remediation however no one has contacted me, therefore uploading this review.

Patches visible all over the screen
Bought a brand new premium Q70T QLED last month and have never been so disappointed with my purchase. There are patches on the corners of the screen and a big white rectangular patch in the middle. Gets quite embarrassing if you're trying to impress someone. When I contacted the customer care center they advised that the TV is designed to have a picture like that. If you're placing to buy a premium big screen TV I would suggest you anything else but Samsung.

Amazing quality! Minor issues.
Had my Q70T for about 4 months, and it was off to a rocky start. Very bad app support... No Stan, no Foxtel, and a few others, BUT within a month, they were all there, ready to download.
Picture is amazing! Sharp as a tack! Genuine 4K content is hard to come by. "Oh, but if you have Netflix premium, you can get 4K movies, etc." Sure, but truthfully, the 4K content from Netflix seems less than perfect. When you access the demo mode (you know, the ones they use in the stores), the picture is astounding!
The sound is good, but not great. An older ...

Good quality TV but Samsung app store isn't great
I bought a Q70 65" around Christmas 2019 from the Good Guys. It's a good quality TV and the screen is great but the app store doesn't have many apps and other features are available only to other Samsung devices which I don't have.

Questions & Answers
I am thinking of buying a Q70T (65"). After reading some of these reviews, I'm not sure if it will be money well spent. Sure, there are a few good reviews, but the negatives outweigh the positives. Can anyone from Samsung tell me if any of these issues have been addressed at the factory? And can Samsung assure me that warranties will be honoured if something goes wrong within the warranty period?
Have had mine for about 3 months now and have had no problems what so ever,
I'm interested in buying one of these, however the review above that shows the glaring white screen irregularities is concerning - can a sumsung representative please confirm that the company does indeed find a product so obviously faulty to be up to standard as stated by the reviewer?
Have not noticed any white or grey screen, picture is fantastic day or night.
Have not noticed any grey or white screen
The picture is so clear and crisp
