Curved TV creates a more immersive viewing experience. The curved screen wraps around you, making the picture appear closer and larger than it would on a flat panel display. This means that when you watch movies or play video games on your curved TV, you get an experience similar to being in an actual movie theater or arcade.
The images appear sharper at the edges. Because curved displays track the natural form of your eyes better than flat ones, their images appear somewhat sharper at the edges. It’s because of this that many commercial cinemas use curved screens, since the bigger the screen, the more likely your eyes are to notice a loss in clarity at the edges if it is flat. However, since the focus of many TVs today is on very large ones with a resolution of 1080p or greater, we limit this point to TVs with a screen size of 70 inches and up.
They’re less prone to glare. The curved shape of a curved TV means that light from the windows in your home won’t bounce off of it and into your eyes as easily as it would with a flat screen. This makes them more enjoyable to watch if you have large windows in your living room or bedroom.
You notice that pictures have more depth. The first thing that many consumers say when they first try out a curved TV is that the picture appears to be three-dimensional. This is due to the fact that, like a 3D image (or the world around us, come to that), the curved screen creates an image with multiple depth planes. This includes a real foreground and background. This depth attribute is so significant that Samsung employs image processing on its curved TVs to ensure images fit more properly with the screen’s curved nature.
In addition, you can also watch videos from a wider viewing angle. You’d probably say I’ve gone off my rocker with this one. Especially given that viewing angle problems are addressed in the Cons section of this article! But here’s the thing. When you’re not sitting directly opposite the screen, colors lose saturation and contrast drops significantly, as anyone who’s ever watched a regular LCD TV from the side knows. Curved TVs, on the other hand, cause the edges of their pictures to face off-axis viewing positions, yet the color and contrast losses seen at these viewpoints are considerably reduced.
They look more natural. When curved TVs are placed on stands or cabinets, they tend to blend in with their surroundings better than flat screens do. This makes them a good choice if you want your TV to look more like artwork instead of an electronic device.
