How does Samsung Game Mode work?

Do you often play fast games on your Samsung TV? Then the Samsung Game Mode, or Game Mode, is a handy function for you. This makes the game react faster to the buttons you press. You can read how this works exactly in this article.

Why would you switch on the Samsung Game Mode?

Samsung Game Mode

A television uses various techniques that improve image quality. The disadvantage of this is that there is extra delay between the playback source and the screen. You don't notice this when you watch a Blu-ray, but you do when you play a game. Although this delay consists of milliseconds, in fast games it sometimes determines the difference between winning or losing. You switch off these imaging techniques with the Game Mode. This way you sacrifice a small part of the image quality for a better reaction speed.
