Smart TV emerged in 2012 with the promise of being the big TV revolution, and indeed it has been the most significant technological revolution. Smart television has similar functions as smartphones; with it, you can access websites, do research, check emails, access social networks, and most preferred is streaming movies and web series. You can also play video games by merely plugging in the cable from your gaming console (TV must have an HDMI port for this). You can also go to your Smart TV’s app store and find a bunch of cool apps like streaming services for movies and music and many more.
To enjoy all these awesome benefits, you only need to have access to the internet connection. Smart TVs come with built-in Wi-Fi, but you can also opt for cable connection and start a broadband connection too.
What Are the Functions of a Smart TV?
Most of the people India own a Smart TV but do not know its features or what functions can it perform.
So here are things your Smart television can do.
- Surfing the Internet
- Using Streaming Services
- Screen Mirroring
- Voice Control
- Watch 3D Movies
We have briefly described each feature below-
Surfing the Internet: With Smart TV, you have access to the internet and can use it as if you were on your computer: to do research, access social networks like Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, and read emails and so many other things.
Using Streaming Services: You can also access streaming services like Amazon Prime Video and Netflix to watch movies, series, and documentaries. You can also listen to music with Spotify & Gaana or any other music streaming service.
Gaming: Just like the apps, Smart TV has also got free games that you can play anytime. You don’t have to buy a video game console, because the television’s own remote control takes over this function. Using Wi-Fi, you can also download new game apps from PlayStore. You can also connect your video gaming console directly to your Smart TV and play on the big flat screen. If this is your goal, then you must buy a large screen of about 40 inches.
Screen Mirroring or Chromecast: You can connect various devices such as smartphones and tablets to your Smart TV via Bluetooth or USB cable and have access to the contents of these media on the television screen or in simple words cast your mobile screen to your television screen. The best feature of this is your mobile or tablet content gets the sound and picture quality of your Smart TV.
Voice Control: The New Smart TVs are now coming with Voice Control Remote, which allows you to access voice commands and making the navigation super easy. There are a few setup boxes like Airtel, which also are offering voice control remotes for easy search and stream.
3D Experience: The 3D feature is rare and only found in a few and very expensive Smart TVs. Some Smart TV models come with specific glasses and offer a built-in converter to watch the content, but it can be found on Blu-ray DVDs and streaming applications.
What Are the Advantages and Disadvantages of a Smart TV?
You must have known many advantages of a Smart TV by now. As even a blind can notice such amazing features like surfing the internet, streaming movies and shows, playing awesome games and many others.
But everything has a bad side and Smart TV has its own too. First of all to access the internet and stream everything you need a stable internet connection. Without the internet, you can’t enjoy half of the services offered by a Smart TV. And lastly, they are a luxurious appliance and therefore more expensive compared to other entertainment households.
Factors to Look on When Buying a Smart TV…
Smart TV is an expensive appliance for a middle man and so a person has to check and compare every aspect to buy the perfect Smart TV.
So here are some factors you must check before buying a Smart TV:
- Screen Technology
- Operational system
- Image Resolution
- Inputs and Connections
And now I will explain each of the factors so that you don’t get confused and easily chose your Smart TV.
Screen Technology: Basically, there are LCD and LED TVs, the latter evolving into OLED and QLED. The difference between these is the way they brighten the screen, on the LCD television there is a white fluorescent light behind the screen and in the case of LED televisions are LED lights. The OLED television model has light emitted by organic compounds that glow in contact with electricity and release natural colors. And so one must check screen technology before buying and make an ultimate decision according to your needs and budget.
Size: Screen size is one of the factors that define the price of a Smart TV. Flat and thin-screen TVs can be 26 to 110 inches, the bigger the screen the more expensive the TV will be. One thing to keep in mind before buying a television is the size of the room where you will be setting it up.
Operational System: Smart TV has its own operating system, which controls everything from basic functions such as audio and picture adjustments to the most advanced features such as voice command, application access, and more. The most preferred and most common OS is Android.
Image Resolution: Picture quality is one of the most important features in choosing a television, and it depends on the screen resolution, which is measured by pixels, the various dots that receive color and form the images when grouped together.
HD is the most common but also the simplest screen resolution, has the same picture quality as a digital TV. Full HD is more than twice the pixel of HD resolution, which ensures a sharper picture. You can also choose the Ultra HD image resolution, better known as 4K. The 4K Smart TV is four times more pixels than Full HD technology, resulting in remarkable images with brilliant color and brightness.
Inputs & Connections: Smart TVs have HDMI and USB port which allows it to connect to various devices such as setup boxes, gaming consoles, players, hard drives and many more. And one must check that the product has enough ports to fulfill his connectivity needs.
Design: After so many competitive brands, it is certainly difficult to choose as everyone is offering the same technology but what changes the game is its Design. People prefer beautiful and attractive designs rather than a boring TV with the same old features.
Where to Buy?
Smart TVs are now high in demand and so are readily available in local appliance stores or several brand outlets. Buying online at Amazon or Flipkart is the best and recommended choice by me. Amazon’s website offers models of various brands, sizes, technologies, and prices in a way that you can compare with, which are the best options, and previous customer reviews are also an advantage for you to check and buy.
We are now close to the end of our article after so much of knowledge and technical stuff about Smart TV, and we are here on our conclusion. So today we have shared the best smart TV in India and a brief buying guide about it which includes the advantages & disadvantages of a Smart TV and also the factors which one should consider before buying a Smart TV.
