While big-screen TVs might get all the attention, smaller TVs are just as important. These TVs are ideal for smaller rooms where large-screen TVs will just cause people to get the next strain. Not only that, but small-screen TVs are also more affordable than their big-screen brethren. In this list, we will be focusing on the 32-inch TV, a size that seems to have become the defacto option for those looking for a smaller TV.
Things to consider when buying a 32-inch TV
Room size: As mentioned earlier, 32-inch TVs are best suited for small rooms. That’s because if you plan on sitting too far away from the TV, you won’t really see much. So consider buying a 32-inch TV only if you plan on sitting about six to seven feet away.
Resolution: While everyone is clamouring for 4K resolution, 32-inch TV can get by with HD-Ready or 720p resolution. That’s because, on this small screen, the detail offered by 4K resolution becomes negligible as it isn’t discernable to the human eye.
Ports: If you plan on connecting a bunch of devices to your TV such as a streaming box, gaming console etc, then consider how many ports the TV has to offer. The smaller size of 32-inch TVs means that you may not get lots of HDMI ports to work with, but you can get two or maybe even three ports on certain TVs.
OS: While there are a number of custom Operating Systems on offer, most smart TVs tend to offer Android TV. However, LG and Samsung have their own software on their TVs. LG offers WebOS, while Samsung offers Tizen. All of them offer access to most OTT services.
