Netflix Adds Several Samsung & TCL Phones To HD/HDR List Including Budget Devices

Netflix is the biggest video streaming service in the world, as it attracts people of all ages, genders and ethnicities. It has a wide range of TV shows and movies, along with Japanese anime and Korean dramas - with the latter two showing the app’s diversity and versatility. Netflix has grown tenfold in its downloads, and now with the coronavirus hitting us globally, it has seen its user activity go berserk. The Netflix app on Google Play Store has over a billion downloads now - which speaks volumes about just how big of a user base the company has, considering it’s a third party app and not affiliated with Google.

When people tend to watch and stream their favourite shows and movies, they prefer to watch it in high quality or HD - and Netflix has the option for that. However, to watch HD content, you need your phone to be certified with Widewine L1 - but even with this certification on their phones, a lot of Samsung users complained about not having the HD/HDR10 availability in their Netflix app. This was due to Netflix whitelisting some Samsung phones - but now the streaming company has brought a ton of new smartphones back to its HD and HDR compatibility list, including Samsung and TCL phones. Down below are the lists of the phones added.
