Samsung BU8000 vs Xiaomi Mi TV P1: Smart TVs 4K ¿Tienen HDMI 2.1 y Dolby Vision para Gaming?
Hello, I hope you are very well, in this video I bring you a comparison between the 4k smart tvs, on the left the Samsung BU8000 in this case of 55 inches which is a model of this 2022 and on the right the Xiaomi Mi TV P1 also 55 inches but which is a 2021 model, the BU8000 in this case has a VA panel while the Xiaomi Mi Tv P1 comes with an ADS panel but in some countries it seems to come with a VA panel but the truth is I don't know how I know that the BU8000 has a VA panel and the Xiaomi panel ADS there are several ways to confirm it one of them is of course the most accurate and it is the capture of the pixels which I have already done and the other is simply to tap the screen and in the BU8000 as you can see flashes are generated that indicates that it has a VA panel while in the Xiaomi no flashes are generated, that indicates that it does not have a VA panel, so when they are in a store and want to verify quickly and relatively easily what type of panel the television they want has, then they If it does not generate flashes, it is because it does not have a VA panel and if it does generate them, it is because it does have a VA panel . In case you did not know, televisions that have VA panels have better performance in this type of dark scenes, they show less clouding and bleeding effects light and in the case of ADS panels, in addition to the fact that in some scenes they can show more of a clouding effect and also of light bleeding, sometimes in some areas with a lot of shadow they tend to exaggerate that darkness and many times it is more difficult to notice the details in those parts although in other scenes the fact that it shows more clouding can help the details to be noticed a little better but in general in the televisions they have low-end ADS panels that in this case the Xiaomi that comes with direct LED backlighting while the BU8000 with Edge LED backlighting in the case of Xiaomi that they remember for having an ADS panel in addition to showing more clouding or cloudiness effect those areas tend to suffer slightly from what e is known as Black Crush, that is to say that many times what I already mentioned is exaggerated that those areas with darkness tend to look too dark and many times with much more difficulty in noticing details in terms of contrast ratio, the BU8000 reaches 3,914: 1 and the Xiaomi 1,432:1 despite the fact that the Xiaomi Mit TV P1 has bread, the ADS has better performance in dark scenes compared to a television that has an IPS panel, these results that you notice between the BU8000 with a VA panel and the Xiaomi that you remember has an ADS panel in dark scenes it will be noticed practically the same with any image mode including the game mode in this case these results are with Resident Evil 7 which is a 4k video game that has high dynamic range now well in terms of colors sometimes with some image modes and with some content the Xiaomi tends to show colors a little more saturated sometimes the difference is very noticeable however the BU8000 is not that it does a bad job of In fact it seems to me that it is also good but usually in most content sometimes I like the result a little more in terms of colors by the Xiaomi Mi TV P1 and in terms of brightness amounts in standard dynamic range the BU8000 reaches 308 nits while the Xiaomi 300 nits in high dynamic range the BU8000 reaches 312 nits while the Xiaomi 300 nits and with the game mode the BU8000 reaches 312 nits and the Xiaomi 302 nits in terms of high dynamic range technologies both televisions support HDR10 HLG and also HDR10 plus the difference is that the XIaomi also supports Dolby Vision and also Dolby Vision for gaming while the BU8000 does not support dolby vision it is important to mention that the uniformity of gray colors of both televisions despite the fact that they are low-end televisions It is very decent, but the dirty screen effect is a little more noticeable on the Xiaomi Mi TV P1, although at least with this gray background because when viewing content with more color I think that on both televisions that dirty screen effect could go unnoticed most of the time with any type of content, both in standard dynamic range and in high dynamic range, so I take the opportunity to talk about the results in terms of image scaling for this I use the movie image mode on both televisions, the results that I notice are practically the same when the content has low resolution, we are talking about 720p or a slightly lower resolution on both, you can notice slightly pixelated parts but nothing exaggerated and in fact they can arrive to pass as something tolerable or almost unnoticed or at least not become something annoying considering that it is normal for 4k televisions to show slightly pixelated content when the resolution of that content is very low even those of high range are going to show those results but when the content has 1080p there the image scaling work on both phones viewers is a little better in fact much better I would say and the content seems to have a little more resolution but it is still not going to be shown in 4k when the content is 1440p then the image scaling work on both televisions is going to make many results resemble a native 4K and of course both televisions can play native 4K content in both standard dynamic range and high dynamic range without problems just remember that in order to produce high resolution content through streaming applications such as Netflix YouTube Amazon prime Apple tv among others must have, yes or yes, a very good internet download speed in their homes or else these applications will automatically reduce the resolution of the content in order to improve their fluidity in terms of the gaming section, the main thing What you should know is that none of these televisions have HDMI 2.1 ports and although the Xiaomi Mi TV P1 is marketed as s If it did have HDMI 2.1 ports due to the fact that it supports 60 hertz in 4k with high dynamic range and improved audio return channel, it does not support the most important thing, which is 120 hertz in 4k and neither does it support variable refresh rates, although the advantage of the Xiaomi is that it supports 120 hertz even if it is only in 1440p in addition to dolby vision for gaming so probably the Xiaomi is a slightly better option in this section of video games in terms of its Input Lag times I still do not have a device that allows me to measure those times and I can't find a page that provides me with those values or at least not a reliable page but according to practice and what I have experienced and compared with other televisions probably in both those times of Input Lag in 4k at 60 hertz in standard dynamic range and in high dynamic range they can oscillate between 10 and 11 milliseconds it seems to me that in practice they show good results in this area both In this gaming section, as with other types of content, especially when that content, including video games, has a high dynamic range, the main thing to keep in mind is what has already been mentioned from the beginning that the Xiaomi has an ADS panel and that the areas with darkness or shadow sometimes they tend to look too dark, too exaggerated and many times with difficulty to notice details that is what is known as Black Crush in a popular way so to speak so keep that in mind when you play this type of shooting video game competitively or for example the Call of Duty Warzone that many times I am asked if a television suffers from Black Crush , you already know that this Xiaomi suffers even slightly from this effect and probably for some gamers it can be a differentiating factor a bit against the Xiaomi Mi TV P1 but in general for a gamer who is not too demanding or who just mainly plays this type of game with more color and q Since it does not require such an exaggerated competitive level, the Xiaomi is probably a more than sufficient option considering that, as I already mentioned, it supports 120 hertz, even if it is only in 1440p, it is very important that you keep in mind what I already mentioned that none of them supports 120 hertz in 4k both televisions in 4k support up to 60 hertz refresh rate in both standard dynamic range and high dynamic range and both televisions also support enhanced audio return channel and in terms of their response times I don't know their values either but They can probably go around on average in about 15 milliseconds. The truth is that in terms of movement management, it seems to me that they do a good job considering that they are low-end televisions and that they cannot demand more from them in this gaming section. movement management when viewing content through streaming applications in this case I use YouTube as an example on both televisions it is very good or it is almost the same that is great considering that they are low-end televisions the Samsung BU8000 has the image clarity settings parameter in each image mode and the Xiaomi in each image mode has the parameter known as video smoothing technology from Samsung I don't know how it is called but in the case of XIaomi it is known as Motion Estimation Motion Compensation whatever it is on both televisions I repeat despite the fact that they are low-end televisions they show good results in terms of handling movement decreasing the effects of vibration and also a little of what is known as blurriness and also slightly the ghosting effect the viewing angles in the BU8000 are not good I would say that it is the main disadvantage of televisions with VA panels while in the Xiaomi they are better they lose less volume or appear less whitish when their screen is viewed from a very wide angle which is one of the advantages of televisions with ADS panels and also of those with IPS and PLS panels, so the Samsung BU8000 is to always see it from the front and the Xiaomi is for when suddenly some people have to sit around its screen so that they do not have to experience whitish colors, the management of reflections on both televisions that It is very similar in terms of results. They are
televisions that are more recommended for dark rooms, especially the BU8000 because it has a VA panel. They are moderately recommended for rooms with artificial lighting because, in any case, they handle the reflection of light sources well, but they are not so recommended for rooms that receive many reflections through the windows because those reflections can be noticed more on their screens and it can be a bit annoying in terms of the smart section these are their remote controls in the One Remote of the BU8000 I have it covered with a case that in this case it is not a custom case because it is a new control model but at least this case from 2021 it fits well to protect the most important thing, which is the solar panel so that this control does not get scratched, it can also be charged via a usb type c port, while the Xiaomi uses triple 2 disposable batteries A , the fluidity of the Samsung Tizen operating system It's good and also the Xiaomi's Android tv is not bad the Xiaomi has Android 10 sometimes they open the applications a little faster on the BU8000 and other times on the Xiaomi but in terms of loading videos I've noticed that on the BU8000 they load a little faster or sometimes in fact much faster on both YouTube and Netflix as well as Disney plus among other applications in terms of voice assistants at least in most countries the BU8000 supports both Samsung's own Bixby Voice and also the Amazon Alexa and the Google assistant but at least here in Colombia I don't know why it only supports Bixby Voice while the Xiaomi of course supports the Google assistant for having Android tv a Both televisions support the function of screen sharing or screen mirroring but neither of them provides what is known as multiview or picture in picture in terms of internet browsers, the Samsung BU8000 supports one that is typical of that Tizen operating system that works well and search can also be accessed through voice commands although at least here in Colombia I don't know why they are still not accepted in Spanish but in English and multimedia content can be played through different web pages and in the case of Xiaomi there are more options because there are more applications that fulfill this function of internet browsers and in the vast majority of them you can also play multimedia content through different web pages and in terms of application store in the case of the Samsung BU8000 it is its own of the Tizen operating system is very extensive but APK files cannot be installed and the storage space is approximately 3.8 gigabytes and In the case of the Xiaomi, the application store is of course the Google Play Store and its storage space is 12GB and APK files can also be installed in terms of inputs, the Samsung BU8000 supports three hdmi 2.0 ports, one of them with support for enhanced audio return channel two usb 2.0 ports one port for the LAN cable for internet one port for the optical digital cable and one port for the air antenna and the Xiaomi for its part supports one port for the LAN cable internet one port for the optical digital cable composite inputs also a port for the cable for the air antenna and also three hdmi 2.0 ports one of them with support for improved audio return channel two usb 2.0 ports and unlike the BU8000 the Xiaomi also supports a 3.5-millimeter port for headphones
heating up on the screen after almost three hours of non-stop use, also of course with video games, is normal on both televisions except on the lower part of the BU8000 screen where it increases considerably and this happens in current Samsung televisions and also in last year's in 2021 with an ultra-thin design and in the case of Xiaomi the temperature is lower and remains more constant or more balanced across the entire screen but either way none of them will feel excessive heat when approaching their screens in terms of sound the power of the two televisions is 20 watts but in practice the result seemed more powerful to me in terms of sound he sound of the Xiaomi Mi TV P1 at the end of this video not being able to judge that for yourselves it is not that the BU8000 does a terrible job it is decent simply that comparing them side by side I found the sound system of the Xiaomi much better which is a extra point in favor of this brand and in terms of technologies both televisions support dolby audio technologies and also improved audio return channel but the Xiaomi also supports DTS technologies while the Samsung no longer supports them to finish if they ask me which one I recommend or which one I would choose I would go without a doubt for the Samsung BU8000 assuming there were no more televisions in the world why first because I prefer the VA panel for having better black colors o better performance in dark scenes with less clouding effect and in shaded parts you can see details more easily in terms of colors I like it, it's not bad and I prefer the Tizen operating system in addition to the ergonomics of the One Remote and in terms of sound I could live with it and in the case of the Xiaomi if they can get it with a VA panel in their countries and if they want Android TV it is a very good option in general the bad thing is that here in Colombia and I don't know if in other countries it also comes with a panel ADS but well it also has good things even though it has that type of ADS panel I don't know what you think about both televisions knowing that the BU8000 has a VA panel and this Xiaomi M i TV P1 panel ADS at least here in Colombia which one would you choose and why please let me know in the comment box if you liked this video I invite you to please click the like button and also subscribe to me channel if they haven't done it yet, if they can acquire a membership of the channel so that they can access extra benefits and also that way they would support me and activate the notification bell so that they can know instantly every time I upload a new video not being me anymore dismissal see you in the next one and I invite you so that you can judge the performance of the sound system of both televisions
