You know, I’ve noticed that a large television is like a status symbol in India. Televisions have always been a status symbol in Indian households from way back in the day, when the entire neighborhood would gather around the house of the one guy who owned a television.
These days when I visit any relatives house, they have a large television in their guest room and they tend to show it off. So, if you have the means, go for a large one. This is not to say that a 32-inch TV will not be any fun to own. For a practical person who doesn’t care about showing off, it fits the bill quite well. Hey, it gets the job done! So here is my list of the best 32 inch tv in India for 2019:
But first, how did I decide on these Televisions?
Before you read through my recommendations, you’d probably like to know on what basis I picked these televisions. Honestly, I think tv technology has been so perfected over the years that you can’t really go wrong with any. I just looked for TV’s that provided good value for money and were well designed. LED with IPS panels, I ranked them higher because of better viewing angle. Smart TV’s are also included in the list with features mentioned. To sum up: good brand, good design, good price was the criteria.
Best 32-Inch LED TV In India – 2019
Special Mention: Sanyo 109 cm (43 Inches) Full HD IPS LED TV XT-43S7300F (Black) (2019 Model)
I decided to add this 43-inch TV at the top of my list because in my research this is the best overall TV I found below Rs. 20000. A 32-inch TV from LG or Samsung will cost you closer to 20k anyways, so why not go for a 43-inch TV with IPS LED panels? You only have to live with the sightly unknown brand like Sanyo, but if you can, trust me, this is a great TV. The amount of features it has at this price range is unparalleled: IPS Panels, Full HD, noise Reduction, good energy ratings etc. Just check out the reviews on amazon to see how happy people are with this purchase.
1. Sanyo 80 cm (32 Inches) HD Ready LED TV XT-32S7201H (Black)
I’m a fan of this Japanese company called Sanyo. They provide amazing features with a high quality and good price. This particular TV comes with HD-Ready resolution, A-Grade Panel (kinda like IPS), 60Hz refresh rate and some unique things like motion blur reduction. The picture and sound quality on this TV is very respectable and it is very well designed. You can’t compete with Japanese in the electronics department, I learn that more and more everyday.
2. Sony 80 cm (32 Inches) HD Ready LED TV KLV-32R202F (Black) (2018 model)
Sony is known for their premium looking products. This TV kinda falls in that category. It’s not very expensive and has overall very simple features but it looks damn good. It is one of the cheapest Sony “Bravia” Televisions with no Smart TV features. You can connect a Fire TV stick or Chromecast to turn it into a Smart TV. Everything else about the TV is mediocre at best….HD-Ready display, 20W sound output, NO IPS PANEL….but it gets the job done and looks good while doing so.
3. LG 80 cm (32 Inches) HD Ready LED Smart TV 32LK616BPTB (Grey) (2018 model)
A genuine Smart TV with an amazing operating system. While most Smart TV’s are based on Android, this LG TV is based on WebOS. It is based on Linux and I have used it before in my Palm Pixi phone. It’s amazing and miles better than Andriod in my opinion.
LG is a large and reliable company, unlike most other Smart TV’s, this TV will not lag. It will deliver on what it promises. There is a downside that this TV doesn’t have 3.5mm headphone jack but you can still connect home theaters using the audio out jack. As for the picture quality, it uses IPS Panels which is currently the best technology for LED Tv’s.
4. Shinco 80 cm (32 Inches) HD Ready Smart LED TV SO32AS (Black) (2019 model)
Decent picture quality with true upscaling, while it’s native resolution is 1366x768p, it can upscaled to watch even 4k videos. The model does lag a bit because of the 1 GB RAM, its not enough for heavy users. This is major downside of this TV, but if you don’t intend to use the Smart TV features very often, this is good option. Shinco customer service is also quite good.
5. Kevin 80 cm (32 Inches) HD Ready LED Smart TV K32CV338H (Black) (2019 Model)
Not much is known about the brand “Kevin”, my research tells me that it’s an Indian company based in Delhi. I also noticed that they have a lot of bestseller TV’s on Amazon, mainly because they provide low-cost televisions with impressive features. This particular TV is right at the top of that list and for good reason. It costs just around Rs.10000 and comes with every feature you could expect at this price. HD-Ready resolution, A-Grade Panels, HRDD Display, large viewing angles, 60Hz refresh rates and numerous Smart TV features. I’m not too sure about the customer service this company provides, so I’ve added this to the bottom of my list. But for those on a tight budget, this seems like a good option.
If you are not happy with my choice of products and would like to do some of your own research, use my TV buying guide as a starting point. I used that knowledge to make these choices.
Trust me it took a long time to create this list. I had unrealistic expectations when I began, I wanted Full-HD televisions with IPS panels and high refresh rates. First of all, those type of televisions are hard to find in India, secondly, the few that are available cost upwards of Rs. 1 Lakh. So I did the best I could, let me know your thoughts.
