1. Sony Bravia 32-inch Full HD LED Smart TV (KLV-32W672F)
The Bravia lineup of Sony goes back a long time. These TVs are generally known for their excellent audio-visual output, and this Full HD LED Smart TV is no different. It brings crisp picture quality and the Dolby Digital Plus to the mix and is backed by 30 watts speakers and a built-in subwoofer.
Moreover, this 32-inch TV boasts of HDR and carries a refresh rate of 50Hz. Since this Sony TV model is not Android-based, it doesn't have a Play Store. Instead, it's based on Sony's flavor of Linux and comes with VEWD app store. So, you might face issues in running some apps. Thankfully, the TV comes loaded with apps like Netflix and YouTube.
User reviews have been pretty good for this TV, with users praising the excellent picture quality and the sound quality.
With over 68% positive reviews on Amazon, this TV makes an excellent buy if you are looking for a TV in a modest budget. However, note that it doesn't support Bluetooth.
With support for HDR formats like HDR10 Pro and HLG Pro, the LG 4K UHD LED Smart TV brings superior clarity to entertaining content. If you must know, only Netflix, YouTube, and Prime Video provide you with an access to HDR10 content in India. Other than that, this TV has a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels with a refresh rate of 50Hz.
On top of that, you can use Google Assistant for voice search. This feature comes in handy when you do not want to type in long names of movies and TV shows.
The TV comes with the LG Magic Remote, which sports a minimal design and is usable from any corner of the room.
LG's TV model does not run Android. Instead, it's operating system is built on LG's own webOS platform. Though it's a polished OS and works flawlessly, the limited number of apps may be a concern. The good news is the apps for Amazon Prime, YouTube, and Netflix are pre-installed. Last but not least, the sound is good enough for a medium-sized room.

3. Samsung 49-inch Full HD LED Smart TV (UA49N5300AR)
Arguably, Samsung makes one of the best displays. That's why the Samsung Full HD LED TV is no different. It has a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels with full HDR and combines it with 40 watts speakers and Dolby Digital Plus. All these combine to give you an immersive experience.
It runs on Samsung's own Tizen OS, which brings a host of smart features, apart from the usual support for popular streaming services.
User reviews have been amazing for this TV so far. It has more than 66% positive reviews with around 4.4 stars rated for picture quality. Users have praised this TV for its viewing angles, display, and of course, its sound quality.
When it comes to the fittings, it has two HDMI ports followed by a single USB port.
The crux of the Mi LED 4K TV is its price. This 4K TV is priced just a rupee shy of the Rs 40,000 price point. However, for its price, its performance is remarkably good. For one, this is a Google-certified TV. That means, you'll get both the Play Store and its share of apps. Plus, it has built-in Chromecast to cast videos and songs from supported apps on your phone to the TV directly.
The picture quality is sharp, vibrant, and produces accurate colors, thanks to the 10-bit HDR display. However, we did face some problems with the default brightness settings. Thankfully, you can tweak the brightness as per your liking from the settings menu.
Also, you can stream 4K content directly from YouTube or external sources. The upscaling is also pretty impressive. Furthermore, you can switch between the two interfaces — one is the PatchWall UI and the other being the default Google UI.
Last but not least, the 20 watts speaker produces decent sound and seems sufficient for a mid-sized room.
5. TCL 139.7cm (55-inch) Ultra HD (4K) LED Smart TV (L55P2US)
The TCL 4K LED Smart TV supports HDR and is based on Android Marshmallow OS. The display is sharp, and the colors are punchy and vibrant. Of course, it's not as good as the ones by Samsung, LG or Sony, but for the price, it's quite capable.
It comes with three HDMI ports and two USB ports to connect other peripherals. The only issue with this TV is that it has an app store of its own.
Though the app store is quite decent, it has quite a limited number of apps. Plus, it's a tad slow. However, if you have a streaming stick like Amazon Fire TV, it will solve the purpose (and defeat the purpose of a smart TV at the same time).
Bring in the Smartness
The advantages of buying a smart TV are many. For starters, you can play games or stream your favorite content with just a flick of a button. Plus, with features like Chromecast and Miracast, you do not have to worry about connecting the phone via wires for displaying the content. Will you trust the old brands or will you go with the new names?
