What Is a Smart TV?
There are many affordable smart TVs on the market but first, let’s see what smart TVs actually are.
Simply put, Smart TVs are TVs with the capability of connecting to the Internet and storing and playing apps, very much like your smartphones. However, you don’t technically need a Smart TV to do all that since you can just get an Android TV Box and simply connect it to your regular TVs. Smart TVs though, do have a built-in OS and are usually equipped with technologies and functions that you will not get with a regular TV.
Capabilities of Smart TVs
With the best Smart TV, you can watch videos, listen to songs, or display pictures on your TV using your mobile phone with certain apps.
Advantages of Smart TVs Over Regular TVs
As mentioned, Smart TVs offer better connectivity with devices and come with an Operating System. As such, they are not just a display output device. All Smart TVs offer WiFi connectivity, Bluetooth and the feature to download and run apps without an Android TV Box.
Do I Need an Android Box If I Already Have a Smart TV?
If your Smart TV already offers WiFi and Bluetooth connection as well as access to app stores, you may not need an Android Box unless if you’d like to access the Google Play Store (if not Android OS) or if you’d like to use certain apps not available in the Smart TV’s default app store.
Choosing The Best Smart TV
Size & Resolution of Smart TVs
The appropriate size depends on your preference as well as the size of your room or living room. The market is full of Smart TVs with the size 30 to 50 inches though it’s not difficult to find bigger ones. In terms of resolution, long story short, grab a 4K one, if you can. If that’s out of your budget, get one with 1080p or 2K resolution.
4K Smart TVs with HDR (high dynamic ranging) will often produce more beautiful picture and video quality. Examples of HDR formats are Dolby Vision, HDR10, HDR10+ and HLG. But TVs that do not have HDR are still okay for 1080p resolution.
HDMI Version & Number of HDMI Ports
Choose a Smart TV with HDMI2.0 & 3 HDMI ports if you want to connect with other hardware such as PlayStation or Android Box. If not necessary, 2 HDMI ports are enough.
Alright, let’s have a look at our list of affordable yet high quality Smart TVs. All the TVs below are 40-60 inches and LED TVs.
