Ive had my 2020 32" since it's initial release last year and have always used art mode and there wasn't one time where motion detection worked. I think the 32" TV was designed with "shortcuts" in comparison to the larger size models. For example, there is no ethernet/wired option, only wifi.
Agreed on both your comments. I think the trick is to keep a "balanced" smart home. I try not to go bleeding edge and find a comfortable sweet spot. APIs are available to integrate with my security system and automatic appliances but I do tend to be a purist and keep them separate for now. Too much control in one ecosystem can be a "not so good thing". However I have the flexibility to integrate. I just wish these TVs would do what they were advertised to do, and reliably. I wanted to fit a small "picture" TV into my master, have some smart features (streaming services) and when not in use, look like a piece of art. Very simple needs. Now with wifi instability and and issues with connecting to a standard cable service (HDCP issues) I'm looking to add an Amazon Firestick or Apple TV to get reliable service. This is unfortunate and not a position a consumer needs to be in; especially when we pay a premium for Samsung products.
