In this article, we are presenting four brand new 32-inch LED TV from most valued television brands in the Indian market: Panasonic, Sony, LG, and Samsung.

Last year Panasonic introduced a whole new series of its LED TVs called Life+ Screen. The Panasonic TH-32AS630D LED TV is a product from the same series and features some notable specs. Panasonic has tried to push the concept of Smart TVs towards user friendliness without making the price unaffordable. This LED Smart TV can be purchased from Flipkart for a price of 35699 INR, which is not against a common man budget considering the brand name.
Design: The elegant design of this TV with appealing colors makes your wall look great. Its beauty does not reduce when putting on a table also because of the 59mm thickness. The TV unit is lightweight at 6.5 KG and can be moved from one place to another by a single person only. Thin bezel with a metallic band at the bottom gives this TV a premium and attractive look.

Wide viewing angles of 178 degrees in both directions are enough for a quality experience. Although the refresh rate of the screen is low, but the LED backlit flickers at 100 Hz ultimately making this TV devoid of motion blur. The direct LED backlighting technology makes sure that brightness gets evenly distributed all over the screen.
It reproduces lifelike and saturated colors. All the details appear to be crisp and noise-free, thanks to the correction technology that runs behind the scenes.
Sound Quality and Smart features of this Panasonic LED TV
The dual speakers at the back consume a total of 20 Watt energy and generate enough loud sound. You would only need an extra set of speakers if you plan to install the TV in a big large room like a hall. The V-audio feature creates a surround sound effect for a theater-like experience.
Smart Features: The home screen of the TV can be customized according to the needs of the user. This is something that we generally do not see on the Smart TVs from other manufacturers. The “My Stream” feature automatically recommends the user about various contents like TV shows, movies and global content over the internet. However, you should have a working internet connection to use all these features.
You can also use your voice to operate this TV directly from the remote. At the core, this Smart TV has a dual-core processor that processes the data without any delay.
Connectivity: Built-in Wi-Fi lets a user to do many things on this Smart TV. Well, it was necessary also as most of the featured services run on the internet only. You also get 3 HDMI and 2 USB ports on the back to connect various devices. Other ports like RF In, Composite In and Audio Out are also present.

Users can share the files on their smartphones and laptops to this TV over the Wi-Fi network. Screen mirroring feature lets the user to cast smartphone screen activity to the big display of this Smart TV. The Swipe and Share capability is another feature that Panasonic teases a lot these days.

The Triple XD Engine that sits on the firmware enhances the clarity and the contrast ratio. And, effective work of the Triple XD engine results in an ultimate experience of the user.

However, these disadvantages do not matter for the customers buying this TV solely for movie and TV show watching.

Other Cool Features of this LG Smart TV

Moreover, this Smart TV also comes with a Time Machine feature that allows for recording your favorite TV shows and Movies. However, the limited storage space at 4GB does not allow a high number of videos to be recorded.

Sony BRAVIA 32 Inches KLV 32R482B
Sony is good at optics that has been proved by the range of products available in the market. People respect its TVs because of the display technology that it uses and the BRAVIA engine is insanely famous among all.
The Sony BRAVIA KLV-32R482B is one of the high-quality LED TVs out there. Although its price of 34900INR seems a little high, but when you look at the features that this TV packs then all seems reasonable. It is not that this TV is free from any drawbacks. Like any other LED TV in the market, this LED TV also lacks in many things. However, one or two never make a product flop especially when quality is there.
Design: The Sony BRAVIA KLV-32R482B LED TV has not much to offer in terms of design. Although it looks good, but inherited appeal might not be impressed you much. It becomes a little thick at 80mm and its bulging back takes a good amount of space. On table, it looks good, but if mounted on a wall, then the gap between the wall and the upper portion of the TV itself is enough to let dirt settle. However, the LED TV is just 5 KG in weight.
Display: You cannot question Sony on the display front. The 32 inch LED backlit panel contains enough pixels to play full HD videos with a resolution of 1920 X 1080 pixels. Sony’s Clear Resolution Enhancer produces fine and detailed graphics for an immersive experience. Each pixel of this LED TV is designed in such a way that it generates true colors with high contrast. The viewing angle of 89 degree (all direction) is the maximum that any manufacturer can achieve.
The display of Sony BRAVIA KLV-32R482B LED TV comes in a default ratio of 16:09. If you are worried about the standard definition TV serials then do not. You can change the aspect ratio to suit the size of media you are playing.
A LED TV with Dolby Sound System for Better Speaker
You will get some disappointment here as this LED TV only features two 8 Watt speakers. There will be many cases where you will need an extra set of speakers for better experience. However, the Dolby technology and different audio modes produce surround sound effect.
Connectivity: Unlike many LED TVS that come above 30,000 Rupees, this LED TV features 2 HDMI and 1 USB ports. There are people who like to connect their hard disks and pen drives both at the same time. Moreover, you might be one of those who want to use this TV as a monitor for their multiple devices. Sony should have put more USB ports in it.
The limited number these ports are compensated by connectivity options like RF In, Headphone out, Audio In and Composite In. You also get built-in Wi-Fi for connecting the TV to the local network, but this does not mean that you will be able to browse through.
The users can get some relief by knowing that they can easily play the media files stored on their pen drives like Videos and Songs. This has been made possible by the built-in media player.
Connect and Play Smartphone Media files on this Sony LED
As it is not a Smart TV so you will have to be settled with the extra features that come packed in. You can play the media files on your smartphones or other media devices directly on this TV by connecting it to your personal Wi-Fi network.
If you and your friends do a lot of photography with smartphones then this LED TV has something special for you. You can call your friends overnight and view each other’s photos on the big screen of this TV. You can also save the photos that you like.
The Sony BRAVIA KLV-32R482B LED TV comes with a screen mirroring feature that enables a user to cast his smartphone’s screen on the display of this TV. You can do gaming, play videos and browse webpages using this feature.

Display and Sound Quality of this Samsung LED TV
Its 32inch display is capable of playing full HD videos with great enhancement. Great viewing angles and the screen ratio of 16:9 make this TV best for movie watching. The Wide Color Enhancer Plus technology makes the smallest of details to look crisp and stunning.
Thanks to the Hyper Real Engine that produces life like colors and enhances the contrast ratio. The panel not only helps in reducing the power consumption but also improves the brightness of the display. However, achieving true blacks is not possible because of the backlight technology.
Sound Quality: The LED TV comes with two 10W speakers at the back. These speakers with the help of DTS technology produce surround sound effect. The sound quality gets even enhance by the Dolby MS10 feature. Audio output is loud enough for a small room, but if you have placed this TV in a big hall then you might need extra set of speakers.
Smart TV Hub: I have a surprise for you, it is a Smart TV! A smart HUB button on the TV remote lets you access the smart panel. You can find apps like YouTube, Twitter and Facebook that run with the help of internet. This LED TV can prove to be a great deal at this price.
