The focus may not have been on curved-screen tech at this year’s Consumer Electronic Show, but don’t think that this means TV tech is going straight – at least not for the two biggest TV makers in the business. Samsung and LG continued to invest in curved TV screen technology throughout 2015, and there’s every indication they’ll continue to do so in 2016. Both companies maintain that it’s a superior viewing experience to normal flat TVs.
The big questions, which have also spawned some debate among consumers, tech watchers and manufacturers as well are whether curved TV designs are superior to their flat screen counterparts, if they’re worth buying and in case they’re worse or better, than by how much and in which ways?
Most of the feedbacks point out that curved TV design does very little for most 4K UHD TVs and if it improves viewing at all, it only does so in small ways and with very large screens. If you like the look of a curved TV, go ahead but don’t expect amazing results from the curve alone.
