Complete value for money. I also have the smart version of this tv that has the Smart Samsung OS, however I don't see any advantage that I get with spending 7-8k extra as I can do all things and mire with this non smart TV (along with the complementary Amazon firestick that makes the tv smart). Pros- 1. Very good voice and picture quality 2. Two USB ports so you can put the charger for firestick in one and still one is left for pen drive 3. All apps-hotstar, prime, Netflix, YouTube, Firefox, yahoo browser, Ted, jio tv and many more work perfectly. In fact when compared to smart Samsung TV that uses Samsung OS instead of Amazon firestick, Samsung smart TV version has lesser apps 4. I assume that more apps will develop for firestick in the future vs the Samsung smart OS as the audience size is bigger for Amazon 5. The home screen search helps me search shows across apps loaded on firestick 6. The firestick allows me to cast phone and laptop on tv very very easily 7. Browser in the firestick is better than what is there in Samsung OS in the smart version if this tv 8. You can even switch the tv on and off with firestick remote. In fact you need the Samsung remote only to control brightness or when you are watching cable TV. 9. The screensavers when there is no activity are amazing. 10. Installation and service if Samsung is very good. They came the same day to install. They were very professional too. 11. Amazon agent also delivered the tv in right time and got the tv checked for any physical damages, so you don't need to be afraid to order this online. 12. Firestick is hidden from vision, so you don't really come to know 13. Backlight and brightness adjustment work very well if you want to see tv in a darker room Cons- Instead of a smart TV you would have to handle two remotes.....which is actually not a big problem
All in all having purchased both the TV (non smart+firestick and smart one) of Samsung, I can say with no doubt that Samsung service is great (have heard a lot of problems related to service from users of MI tv). Also the non smart version is not just value for money, it does have some one the additional benefits that you get because if using firestick smart OS rather than Samsung OS. Though I want to clarify that smart version of this TV is also very good, this one is better when it comes to a saving of around 20% that you get with purchasing this.
