Top 4 Tips on Choosing the Right Smart TV

Posted by on July 11, 2019 in Stuff with 0 Comments

These days, more and more people are opting for smart televisions for their viewing pleasure, and for a good reason: their built-in online connectivity enables them to access content from the popular streaming companies, and in turn, makes the experience a vast improvement in home entertainment over their predecessors. And with the continuous advancements in smart TV app development technology, you should do the same. To this end, here are a few top tips that you should take note of to get the best value for money when buying a smart TV.

1) Physical space

When purchasing a new television, size is perhaps one of the most crucial factors that you should consider. And making the right choice depends not only on your budget but also on the dimensions of the space where it is to be installed. While it may sound tedious, carefully measuring the area where it will live as well as the viewing distance before parting with your money will save you a lot of unnecessary trouble securing a replacement TV later on.

2) Resolution of the TV

Not unlike a computer or mobile device, the resolution of a television refers to the pixels on its screen. And the more pixels, the better the display and viewing experience will be. The general rule of thumb is to go for 4K resolution if you plan to purchase a TV that is bigger than forty inches. For anything lower, however, it’s a better investment to go for the more traditional HD or high-definition models.

3) Software utilised

Once you have determined the physical and visual specifications of the smart TV that you plan to purchase, the next thing to consider is the platform which it will run on. And while it sounds a lot more complicated than it is, mainly since major manufacturers often use proprietary software for their products, it shouldn’t be too difficult to choose the right television whose onboard software you will best benefit from. For example, if you are using Android devices or Google products, it makes sense to go for an Android TV since it will allow existing applications used to sync with the television easily.

4) Reviews

While research isn’t exactly the most exciting part of purchasing a new smart TV, it’s essential to read through reviews first before spending your money. After all, most manufacturers can often be economical with the truth, and time spent in checking write-ups will provide valuable insight that will not only help you avoid flawed models but also narrow down your search too.

While prices have dropped significantly for smart TVs, it doesn’t necessarily mean that they are cheap. And getting the best value for your money depends on making sure to leave no stone left unturned. By keeping these top tips in mind, not only are you far more likely to find the right smart TV that will best fit your needs, but you may even get a better deal in the process too.
