Buying Guide for TV in India


When looking for a new TV, you can get confused with several terms like LED, LCD, IPS, DLED, motion blur, etc

Before buying a brand new TV.

You should know a few basics

Let’s start with the display

Types of Display

Picture quality is the main key point when choosing a TV which is dependent on the display

Now there are several types of display present in the market

  • CRT TV
  • LCD TV
  • QLED TV
  • OLED TV

Picture Quality: LCD < QLED < OLED

All have varying picture quality and contrast. These also vary by price with OLED being the most expensive.

CRT TV’s are the old box-like TV which is now discontinued from the market.

An LCD TV is also referred to as LED TV, this basically means a TV with LCD panel + LED backlighting.

Most of the TVs present and bought in the market are LCD LED TVs.

You should note that LCD is of two types – IPS and VA panel

Both have varying features and work best in different scenarios.

Resolution

Resolution is also a key factor for deciding the picture quality of a TV

It refers to the number of pixels present on the display screen.

The higher the resolution, the crisp and clearer the picture would be

Different resolutions

  • HD Ready
  • Full HD
  • 4k or Ultra HD
  • 8k

Most of the TVs present come with HD Ready or Full HD resolution.

4k resolution is used in the premium category of TVs and 8k is rare and very expensive. 

HD Ready resolution is the bare minimum in TVs, we suggest you to go for Full HD resolution in TVs.

The problem with HD Ready resolution is that the picture becomes pixelated when viewing the screen from near and you may get eye strain after viewing such a TV from very near.

Smart TV Features

Nowadays almost every TV manufactured is a smart TV.

Gone are the days when TV was just used to watch TV shows and serials.

Now is the time for watching OTT content like netflix and youtube.

There are many features that make TV smart.

  • Wi-Fi
  • Bluetooth
  • Screen mirroring
  • Access to OTT apps – netflix, prime

But we have two categories of smart TVs, one is Android and another is the Non-Android variant

Both are called smart TV but still differ from each other

Android TV gives access to a lot of apps, google playstore, and google assistant

Smart TV is referred to TV with WebOS or Tizen operating system which are similar to android but not exactly android. These are lightweight, have limited apps, consume less resources

Sound

Most of the TVs in the market have 20W speakers with some expensive ones with 40W

This may be fine for some but not for most of us.

The sound produced from a 20W speaker is not very loud

If you are a soundaholic or have a big room that you will need to connect external speakers, or soundbar to it for getting the best experience

TV Brands

After choosing the various features you need in a TV it is very important to choose a good brand

There are many benefits of buying from a reputable and good TV brand

You will come across many cheap TVs available offline or online by Chinese companies.

There are various issues when buying a Chinese TV like

  • Low resell value
  • Poor after-sales service
  • Low Durability
  • Possibility of manufacturing defects

However, there are few good Chinese brands like Xiaomi MI and TCL from which you can buy an LED TV

Let’s have a look at some good TV brands in India

  • LG
  • Samsung
  • Sony
  • VU
  • Onida
  • MI
