The ultimate BUYING GUIDE for 32-inch TVs in India– 2018

The Display technology– LED and LCD are one and the same!

The display type of all the TVs available today are based on the LED technology– it’s the mother of LED variants, OLED, and QLED technologies. The LED is derived from the LCD (Liquid Crystals display) technology and can best be understood with a sandwich.

32_1

The bread loaves at both ends in TV terms, are the LED panel and cover glass. The Sandwich fill, consists of a layer of liquid crystals enclosed within electrodes, polarizing film and glass filters. When you switch on the TV, these liquid crystals produce the images you see on-screen.

Unlike the LCD TVs which used fluorescent lamp, LED TVs use Light Emitting Diodes as a source of light. This upgrade brought a number of benefits to LED TVs like slimmer body, and better picture quality. And soon the terms LCD & LED merged into one– ‘LED’.

Another display technology doing the rounds these days is OLED and QLED. However, these are not available in 32” screen size, but if you’re still curious then check out my guide and reviews on the best OLED TVs in India.

Are you wondering why I haven’t mentioned Plasma TVs at all? Well, it’s because they’re out of fashion and out of stores or to put it bluntly– they are dead!

 Resolution

The virtual images we see on TV are made up of tiny pixels. These square-shaped dots determine the sharpness and quality of the picture. Hence more the number of pixels, the clearer will be the image.

 The different screen resolutions available today are as follows

 

(1366 x 768p): 720p or HD Ready (The optimum resolution for your 32-inch TV!)

(1920 x 1080p): 1080p or Full HD

(3840 x 2160p) or 4K/ Ultra HD/ UHD

To test out the difference for yourself, check out any video on YouTube and watch it at different resolutions by following these steps:

Settings> Quality> choose from 144p to 1080p

Refresh Rate

So, you’ve got yourself a nice HD ready or FHD TV, but what if the content keeps ‘flickering’?

What we see on TV is a string of still images appearing so fast one after the other, that we believe the action is actually taking place. The refresh rate indicates the value of how many times the image you see on TV is updated in a second.

The refresh rate ranges from 40-240 Hz, with super-premium TVs claiming as high a rate as 600Hz! This article explains what is the refresh rate,  in depth.

For a 32” screen size, however, a refresh rate of 50-100 Hz is more than enough to ensure ‘blur-free video streaming. Anything above that will go undetected by our eyes anyway.

Some TVs come with an additional feature, even allowing you to switch between refresh rates for a better movie or sports watching experience. You may find such features under the ‘Movie mode’ or ‘Sports Mode’.

Smart vs. Non-smart TVs

The moment you connect your TV to the internet it becomes smart. However, how smart is the main question.

All the smart TVs offer some basic features like:

  • Screen Mirroring: Casting your Smartphone/ PC/ Laptop screen onto the TV.
  • In-built Apps: A limited number of Apps are preloaded in the TV to help you access a wide array of content.
  • AppStore: Every smart TV has an AppStore from where you can download more Apps and games.

Most 32” smart TVs offer the above features. Some TVs may even supply a basic smart remote– with few shortcut buttons to popular Apps like Netflix and YouTube. All these TVs are still considered to be only basic smart, as they don’t do what full smart TVs do.

Although there is no clear distinction between the level of smartness in TVs (basic smart and full smart are terms I came up with), smarter TVs offer more internet-enabled features like more selection of Apps, web browser, social media connectivity, voice-activated control, Bluetooth and so on.

These features do cost more though.

Alternatively, you can bypass the expensive ‘smarter’ TVs by going for an Amazon Fire TV stick.

Amazon’s Fire TV Stick

Amazon’s Fire TV bridges the gap between a non-smart and smart TV. With a small pen drive and a sleek remote, you can carry your watchlist and favorites anywhere with you! You can even turn your 32” HD ready or Full HD TV into a smart one at a marginal price!

You can stream a selection of movies (Bollywood, Hollywood, Regional), TV dramas (Hotstar, Netflix, YouTube etc.), Games, Prime music and so much more for free! Some apps may demand a minor subscription fee or a fee to upgrade to Premium content. 

What you get:

  • Access to a wider collection of movies, dramas, games and music
  • Personalized recommendations
  • Voice search– ‘Say it and Play it’ (saves you the hassle of typing and browsing)
  • Continuity– carry your personalized collection anywhere with you to continue where you left off
  • Web browsing service– Firefox and Silk

What you need:

  • An HD TV with an HDMI port, at any location (hotels, in-laws house, friend’s place anywhere will do)
  • An active high-speed Wi-Fi internet connection (the Fire TV stick connects to the Wi-Fi)
  • Your Fire TV combo– Fire TV stick (pen drive), Remote, Power adaptor, HDMI extender

 

Connectivity:

  1. Input/output Ports:

High Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI), USB and VGA ports facilitate transmission of audio/video data from Laptops, DVD players, PlayStation/XBOX or Home Theatre systems.

Whenever you buy your 32” TV look for the number and type of ports available and remember– the more the better.

Normally 32” TVs come with 2 HDMI ports, 1 USB port and 1 VGA port.

To know more about the types of TV ports, check this out.

 

Some TVs even come with a 3.5mm jack that lets you plug in your headset, soundbars or speakers, for a focused and exclusive audio experience.

  1. Ethernet and Bluetooth

Smart TVs come with LAN port in the rear which lets you tap into your internet connection. Some TVs offer Bluetooth feature, that allow you to wirelessly sync your phone and play music or radio.

Viewing Distance

Have you tried watching a 240p YouTube video on full screen mode?

It looks hideous!

But minimize the screen and the video will be bearable, at the very least.

The same works for viewing distance in case of a TV. A full HD 1080p TV can be enjoyed from a closer distance while a 720p is better experienced from further away.

For a 32” TV, the ideal viewing distance is 4ft-6ft (Full HD) and 5ft-7ft (HD Ready).

Buying online vs. offline

Unlike buying stationary or books, TV is a significant and a costly purchase, and as consumers, we all want the best deal in terms of price and exchange offer. 

So  WHERE should you buy your new TV from, to ensure that you get the best price, better variety and not feel cheated after making the purchase?— online or offline? For this, you need to consider just three things:

  1. Delivery
  2. After sales service (i.e. installation and future repairs)
  3. And Exchange of your old TV

 

  1. Delivery

Many consumers misunderstand the seller’s role. The job of any seller whether online or offline, is only to SELL and DELIVER the new TV. Installation and repairs are NOT the seller’s responsibilities.

Keeping this in mind, if you want your new TV to be delivered within the next 24 hours, going to your nearest electronics store is a better option.

However, if you’re willing to wait, then buying online will give you so many more options and deals to choose from!

When buying from Amazon, you can also select your preferred delivery slot, so your TV reaches you when you’re available. You can also return or replace the TV, if you find any issues with the delivered one.

  1. After sales service

Once the TV is delivered, the seller’s job ends. To get the TV installed, you have to contact the customer care center of the TV Company.

You can schedule a suitable time to get your TV installed by contacting the customer care. (When you buy offline, generally the retail store executives make that call for you).

Similarly, for repairs, it is the customer care you need to call and not the seller. This is why the brand of the TV becomes important, as the quality of the after sales service depends on it.

  1. Exchange of old TV

Buying a new TV almost always means discarding an old one. But wouldn’t it be better if you could scrape some value out of it?

Both online and offline sellers, let you get rid of your old TV with a small discount in the price of the new one.

When buying on Amazon, you’re asked for the brand, screen size and condition of your old TV. You’re then given a discount that you can avail on your new TV.

The exchange procedure is simple. If you’ve opted for the exchange, the old TV gets picked up during the delivery of the new one. Convenient and transparent.

Another point to note is that salesmen in retail electronics stores get high commission on certain products. And hence they may aggressively ‘push’ those products on you. Don’t fall for it!

In conclusion, if you’re in a hurry then buying a TV from your nearest electronics store is the best option.

But if you want more variety, more offers and a good exchange rate for your old TV, buying online is the way to go. All from the comfort of your home!

Discounts and Offers

  1. Exchange value

Since buying a new TV almost always means discarding an old one, getting a good exchange offer helps reduce the cost of your new TV.

Many online and offline retailers help you get rid of your old TV while giving you a discount in the new TV’s price, in return.

The amount of discount you get depends on the following:

  • Your Pin code (exchange offer is available in select cities only)
  • Old TV’s Brand, type (LED/LCD), working condition and size

If you opt for the exchange and buy online, the old TV gets picked up at the time of delivery of the new one. Exchanging your old TV for a new one gives you the maximum benefit in terms of discount and convenience.

  1. Bank offers and No cost EMI

Do you carry a lot of plastic money?

Or are you thinking of going cashless now?

Many Banks give discount or cashback offers on their debit and credit cards that you can avail to get your new TV for even lower price! The discount or cashback is usually a small percentage of the TV’s cost and is a good way to get your TV at a sweet price.

But if you want to expand your choices with a limited budget, then you can opt for the ‘No cost EMI’ option.

With No cost EMI, you won’t have to pay the TV’s price upfront, you can instead pay in small monthly installments. The advantage of this facility is, instead of settling for a smaller or cheaper TV, you can buy the TV of your choice without spending a lump-sum amount at one go. How awesome is that!
