I recently bought a new Samsung TV, with all the smart TV features. A random, but probably insignificant, thing that annoys me is when I choose to close an app I've had open to return back to regular TV or a games console, the app drawer at the bottom of the screen doesn't automatically close. It just sits there, open, staring me in the face, until I have to manually close it. There's no setting for this, and there's no simple timer to close it down after a little while.

The other thing I've noticed are ads in those sorts of spaces. Ads for TV shows or services I'm not interested in, which is annoying as well. Fortunately I recently setup Pi-hole on my network and I'm seeing less of them now, but what you might not know is that if you connect these devices up to the web, they're constantly checking in Samsung's metric websites to report information like recent apps, time that the app was spent open, etc. That's blocked too, but accounts for several thousand requests per day.
