There are a number of brands available today, boasting various features and offering different panel sizes within the same price range. You need to decide what you are looking for as more or less smart TVs generally come with assorted features.

  • The Right Screen Size

Bigger is always better.

  • Screen Resolution

After the screen size resolution matters.

A resolution is the number of pixels on the screen of a TV. The more pixels, the better, sharper, and more lifelike images you will get. 

  • Display Type

The more pixels, the sharper the display. choosing a TV with either LED or OLED panel technology both are fine.

Television sets employ several display technologies so that the picture you see becomes clearer and vibrant. The best TVs usually come with 3 kinds of display such as LED, OLED, QLED. The OLED TVs are better as they give wider viewing angles than LED.

Connectivity is important.

Always check the number of connectivity options available in your television set. Mostly people tend to forget to check the connectivity option. The connectivity here means the number of devices you can connect with your TV. Majority of the devices today use an HDMI port for connecting to the Television for best quality video and audio output.

  • Sound

Sound matters.

A decent audio upgrade doesn’t have to be pricey  at all. Today cheaper tv sets often come with better sound quality which you can opt for. Or you can go for all-in and get true home theater for your family.

  •  Control

Make sure you choose a TV which is easy to navigate through a remote, a mobile or voice control. Some of the best TV in India comes with voice control such as Alexa or Google Assistant, you can change the channel, open any apps, open any content as you want.

  • TV Warranty

Your new TV set will come with full manufacturer’s warranty. There are nationwide authorized service centers of popular brands, in case there’s an issue, they will come to your house to fix it. with an authorized dealer, you also get phone and email support.

  • Refresh Rate
