How Do We Rate Best Smart TVs?

So, when it comes to determining which are the best LED TVs on the market in 2020, how do we go about it? In rating televisions, we use a set of 5 criteria.

  1. Value for money: Most middle class families can not afford to spend a large amount of money on purchasing a LED TV. But they would still want to purchase the best quality, large screen size LED they can afford. So, we have kept this in mind when picking the top 10 models in our list of best LED TVs.
  2. Technologies used in their manufacture: There is a big difference in the technology used in a premium brand smart LED TV and a budget TV. A smart TV is not just about the screen size, sound quality and HD/Full HD picture quality. These are several other factors that affect the performance, picture quality and over all viewing experience. We have tried to suggest you the best models for a given budget.
  3. Features: Smart TVs come with different operating softwares, features and apps. Some manufactures limit the availability of certain apps, have cluttered interface and others have very organised, highly responsive, easy to use interface. We have made sure to check all these minute details before making the final suggestions.
  4. Durability and Maintenance Cost: When investing a large amount in purchasing a LED, its obvious for customers to expect the TVs to last a long time. We read customer reviews and complains to various forums to find out if customers are facing problems with any particular model or brand of TV.
  5. The after sale services provided by the manufacturer: This is very important as electronic products can develop snags and its important that the manufacturing company is able to service your TV on site.

Given these criteria, what are the Top 10 Best smart TV 2020? Let’s take a look.

Connectivity and content variety that the Internet provides are a cherry on the cake.

This, indeed, is the best OLED TV in India. The only reason we have placed it at #4 in this list is due to it price which is unaffordable to majority of people. But if you can afford, this is the best smart TV money can buy in India..

Best Smart TV in India 2020 – Buying Guide

This buying guide is put together in order to help Indian consumers understand what defines a really good TV and how important it is for them to have it. As a consumer, when you consider buying a television, you should take into consideration the following details:

  • Picture quality
  • Audio quality &
  • Connectivity

All manufacturers of television design their products, keeping these points in view. And, of course, they use their own technological innovations to achieve best results in these three aspects of television. We shall briefly discuss various technologies which pertain to each of these aspects, beginning with the picture quality.

Technologies That Deliver Picture Quality

HD vs 4k UHD TV

These include…

  1. Light Emitting Diodes (LED): These illuminate the screen more efficiently than the cathode lamps used in LCDs. The panel remains LCD; it is the use of LED as backlight that turns it into LED. The panel contains pixels which brighten and reveal their colors when the light from LED shines through them.
  2. Organic Light Emitting Diodes (OLED): This technology works toward producing a display that is remarkably superior to LCDs and LEDs in terms of brightness, efficiency, flexibility, color contrast and refresh rate. One major reason behind OLED offering better image quality than LED is that OLED’s display architecture offers greater black levels and color fidelity and range, or to be more precise, Wide Color Gamut (WCG). WCG also has better bit depth resulting in vibrancy that is not to be expected from LED.

Another important fact about OLED is that its pixels emit their own light. OLED is better than QLED; because OLED does not suffer from light-bleeding issue which is a problem with QLED.

  1. Quantum Dot Technology (QLED): It makes use of nanoparticles that vary in size. When light hits them, they emit color. Differently sized Quantum Dots produce different colors. But the televisions that use this technology are bulkier than the OLED TVs. This is another disadvantage of QLED.

Having said that, it must be added that QLED improves upon white levels to offer greater brightness. This was missing in OLED.

  1. Picture Engine: It processes digital signals and increases the pixel count. The resolutions of the images owe themselves to the picture engine. But adding pixels increases the resolution; it does not affect other parameters like color, contrast and noiseless images. Therefore, picture engines do a lot more than adding just pixels. They also work on each and every individual pixel in order to add the details like brightness, missing colors and texture so that the end result is exceptionally striking. The clarity of picture, too, is considerably enhanced when the black and white levels are precisely calibrated.

Sony’s X-Reality Pro, LG’s Triple XD, Samsung’s HyperReal, Panasonic’s 4K Fine Remaster, TCL’s  AiPQ are some of the examples of it.

  1. Processor: Just like computers, TVs also have processor chips for processing videos. The more efficient the processor, the better and faster the video processing results. If the processor is inefficient, its effect is seen in issues like fast-pace action seen in slow motion, blurred images, etc.

What’s more, it also has the capacity to find out how human eye perceives things in different light ambience. Consequently, it also has the ability to detect the ambient light in the room in which your TV is installed. After detecting it, the processor adjusts the brightness levels to it so that you can clearly see the images.

If the processor can do this much for picture quality, it can also do the same for the sound.

When it is efficient, like LG’s Alpha 9, Sony’s X1 Extreme, Panasonic’s HCX, etc, you have the results that you find in their products.

  1. Dolby Vision HDR: It processes images frame by frame in order to lend perfect brightness, color and contrast to them. It literally animates what you see, giving it the feel of life.
  2. HDR: It works toward achieving wider contrast and range of colors. In terms of light and color, it is way ahead of standard dynamic range (SDR) content. Through advanced hardware, it renders black shade blacker and white shade whiter. What it achieves practically is heightened color contrast. This also affects color accuracy positively.
  3. HDR10+: It is one of the variants of HDR. So any TV that supports HDR is bound to support HDR10+. It renders the metadata absolutely dynamic by incessantly adjusting the display settings in order to enhance what is on display. In this respect it is better than HDR 10 of which metadata is static.

It has 1 billion shades of colors in its algorithm that comes into play with tone mapping. The excellent viewing experience provided by Samsung and Panasonic televisions owes itself to this technology.

  1. HDR decoder: It is a technology that decodes the signals sent to HDR-enabled TV so that HDR content is displayed on its screen.
  2. Ultra High Definition AI Upscaler: It works on Full High Definition (FHD) content and raises it to the level of Ultra HD 4K picture. Please note that the FHD content has a screen resolution of 1920×1080 whereas the UHD content has the screen resolution of 3840×2160. You can fairly imagine the difference this technology makes.

Technologies that Deliver Audio Quality

These include…

  1. Dolby: Audio systems and quality experienced the thrill of Dolby revolution late in the last century with a five-channel surround-sound. With that a new chapter in digital audio began. Digital audio facilitated transforming sound signals into digital form through encoding. The decoder in TV playback decodes it. Thus, we have the kind of audio experience that today’s smart televisions offer to match with superlative visual appeal. The clarity of sound and, especially, the dialogues is truly amazing. As a consumer, all you need to look out for is the terms such as Dolby, surround-sound, room-filling, etc.
  2. DTS: Another audio system, DTS, too, has the same efficacy that the Dolby systems have in producing surround sound. Since its beginning, DTS has gone through several surround sound formats. Beginning from five channels, we have so far seen up to 7-channel speakers. Here, too, you are not supposed to bother yourself with technical jargon; rather look out for terms such as DTS, DTS HD, etc.
  3. Acoustic Surface Audio Technology: This is a relatively new technology on the tech radar that is quite radical in the way it works. It makes use of actuators and subwoofer behind the TV to produce vibration in the screen, turning it into a sound-producing structure. The result is that the sound comes straight from the screen! Amazing, isn’t it? This is one of the things that make some of Sony’s offerings truly unique.

Technologies that Facilitate Connectivity

Connectivity is the thing that makes the present generation of televisions smart. When we say ‘connectivity’, we mean having a device connected to the Internet. The act of watching television is rendered meaningful and highly entertaining through the facility to bring the content available on the Internet to the large screen of your Android TV. This can be done in a number of ways:

  1. Chromecast: Most smart TVs now come with built-in Chromecast. You can use it through your smartphone or tablet or computer to access the ocean of audio and video content and watch it on your TV screen. It is good that you don’t have to take much trouble to access YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Google Play, HotStar, etc; because the remote control comes with dedicated buttons to access these in just one click.
  2. Bluetooth: Just another way to access the Internet, and also quite effective. You can also use it to connect your TV to speakers to enjoy good music without straining your eyes. The way to use it remains the same. Just pair the devices that you want to connect with it. Once the devices are paired, you can easily watch on your television any content available on the Internet with the help of the paired device (data card, data cable, etc). If you like, you can also mirror the display of your smartphone or laptop on the larger screen of your television in order to enjoy larger and high-quality picture.
  3. HDMI & USB ports: These are given in the television to support devices like data cards or data cables, and through these you can connect devices and access the Internet.

Once your TV is connected to the Internet, you can watch movies, videos, television shows, etc of your choice. With having it connected to the Internet, your choice is rendered utterly limitless. And if you are more interested in games, then there is gaming console for the purpose. You can also have access to hundreds of apps through Google Play store.

As you can see, what is achieved through internet-connectivity in the televisions now was unthinkable in the past. TVs weren’t just smart enough for that then!

Recommended TV Brands

Best Smart TV in India – Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between a smart TV and an ordinary LED TV?

A TV that can be connected to the Internet via Wi-Fi is smart. It is a mini computer that can open apps, play content from Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hotstar, etc, as well as from a DTH or cable TV connection. An ordinary LED TV can only play content from a Cable TV or DTH connection. However, you have the option of connecting a fire TV stick or chromecast, or MI TV stick to HDMI port on your LED TV and convert it to smart TV!

What is the difference between HD Ready, Full HD, UHD, & 4k resolution?

All these terms represent the resolution of a display. HD ready offers 1366x768 pixels, Full HD displays support 1920x1080 pixels and 4k UHD (ultra HD) supports 3840×2160 pixel resolution. The higher the resolution, the better the picture/image quality.

Which is better - OLED or QLED?

Both OLED and QLED are variations of LED TV. In OLED pixels emit their own light and in QLED backlight is provided by LEDs. Without going deep into technical stuff, I will let your know the verdict, which is that while QLED TVs are more durable, OLED TVs are far better in picture quality. OLED TV is manufactured by LG and Sony and QLED TVs are manufactured by Samsung.

Are there any disadvantages of smart TV?

The only disadvantage we can think of is that they are much costly when compared to non-smart LED TVs.
