Review of Deco TV Frame
What’s unique about the Samsung Frame TV is that it mounts flush against your wall and its wires and “brains” can be concealed out of sight. It also has an “art mode” by which you can upload and display art like a screensaver to further make the tv appear more like art and less like a tv.
BUT, the thin black edge around the Samsung Frame TV still kind of makes it look like a TV.
I mean, just look at the difference in these before and after photos:
