Viewing angles are important but they only has to be good enough. The problem is how to find out if they are going to be a problem or not.

Standard VA panel viewing angles are terrible and Samsung should have used one of their ultra wide angle "QLEDs" for this model.
The viewing angle works well for me since my room is 14' wide and 18' long and extends further though the kitchen. Conversely, if you have a wide room and have seating close to the TV off to the side, then this isn't the TV for you.
The Frame carries a premium price due to the specialized bezel, no-gap wall mount, One Connect Box with cable, and the Art Mode capabilities, so I would guess that upgrading to a Q80T panel would increase the price by $350-$500 for a 65" over the current 2020 Frame models. Not sure if that would have priced me out of a Frame originally, but in retrospect, I would pay the extra now for an upgraded panel with better viewing angles.
That being said, the illusion of Art Mode is excellent during daytime and in a more brightly lit room, and despite the fading at angles, it still looks way better than a black rectangle or Ambient Mode, which is better suited to a hotel lobby rather than blending into home décor, which is what you'd get with a current Q80T/Q90T. If you're expecting to be fooled into believing you're looking at a painting from any angle, distance, or lighting, you will be disappointed, but I am impressed every day with how much it looks like art vs. a backlit TV picture.
