Since the introduction of the television set, manufacturers are constantly working hard to make their brands the toast of the market as they struggle for supremacy within the industry.

Consequently, they have made it a habit to introduce what experts in the industry describe as mind-blowing innovative devices with features meant to register their authority as the most preferred brand on the market.

This forms part of a deliberate effort by TV manufacturing companies to get their customers to justify why they pay so much to own their brand.

In its quest to take television viewing experience to another level, Samsung Electronics designed the One Remote Control (that comes with the QLED TV). The smart device is a universal remote that actually create a new remote category within the global market.

Not only is it able to control the many devices connected to the QLED TV, this smart remote is even capable of delivering what a user is looking for at the person's voice command.

The smart device is a new and easy way to make QLED TV functional and fun. It provides an experience that is now as simple as the past was complex.

Instead of multiple remotes to keep track of multiple devices, the One Remote Control offers an easy way to access many of them via the QLED TV.

This, therefore, means that users does not need to push more buttons in vain in search of the right remote to view a favourite programme, because the TV remote control takes out guesswork.

From Blu-ray to games to USB drives, there are a bunch of devices plugged into most television sets, and who among us can actually keep track of all the connected devices?

The QLED TV uses auto source recognition technology to automatically detect what kind of device was plugged in and where it is; and then the One Remote Control makes it simple to control these detected devices on the television.

So a user can just access his or her game console with the One Remote Control device and get in the game without fumbling around.

Discover new things

Although, there are so many channels and programmes available on TV these days, it can be difficult to choose, but even more difficult to actually find something great and entertaining to watch.

With the One Remote Control, sports, movies, cloud gaming, and more are all easily accessible via the Smart Hub. It makes it simple to quickly find what you are looking for as well as discover new things.

As a result, there are often good recommendation when a user turn on the television.


Some television lovers who have had an opportunity to experience the One Remote Control in an interview gave Samsung thumps-up for introducing such a device.

A Satellite TV Installer, Mr Benjamin Asamoah, said TV remote have been around for almost as long as the television itself but the One Remote Control could be compared to none in the market.

“If you know exactly what you want and do not want to bother with buttons, just use your voice. With the One Remote Control, you can speak to it and you will access content, adjust settings, and more.

“Whether it is switching to a device connected to your TV, switching to a particular channel, searching for a TV show, or even looking for your favourite cat videos online, you only have to give the command and the QLED TV will deliver,” he said.

The One Remote Control, he said he had notice that have an intuitive design, set up to make things as easy as possible.

Another television lover, Mrs Clara Yeboah, told the Graphic Business in an interview that, the One Remote Control was a huge evolution in the TV industry.

She observed that the device makes viewing of television very easy and exciting.

“For instance, the auto detection feature makes watching your favourite shows on your Samsung smart TV easy.”

Smart view

With the One Remote Control, television lovers do not have to put their phone down when they need to change the channel, because control is already in their hand with the Smart View application.

This means that a user could simply tap into the Smart View app and control the QLED TV that way.

The One Remote Control makes life easier for everyone in the family. Whether you are watching live TV, accessing cloud games, or popping in your latest Blu-Ray movie, the One Remote Control puts them all at your fingertips.
