TV sizes have swollen up quite a lot in the recent years, and now you can get TVs of 100 inches if you have the cash. However, that isn’t a practical or financially feasible option for many, and most of us don’t have the space to accommodate such large TVs anyway. 32inch TVs offer a great balance between adequate viewing size with less space consumption and come in extremely affordable budgets. They are the gateway to Full HD TV viewing and are really popular with people belonging to all price groups. Adding to that, you can also find TV’s with smart features now, so it isn’t as barebones as they used to be.So, here are some honorable mentions in this size group that you can refer to if you are in the market for a new TV.
1. Samsung-32K5570 Smart TV:
Samsung makes some of the best screens in the industry and it has its roots set in every household. Little surprise then that the Samsung 32K5570 should be placed so high up on the list. It is a smart TV from Samsung that runs on Samsung’s own Tizen OS and can be paired with your smartphone using the Samsung Smart View App. As you might expect, it is a 32 inch LED TV with a 1080p resolution with a refresh rate of 100Hz and features Samsung’s Hyper Real image processing chip to reproduce crisp and accurate colors.

2. Sony Bravia KLV-32W672E:
Sony is one of the older brands when it comes to making TVs. Sure they have lost a bit of their popularity in the recent times, but that doesn’t mean that they stopped making great TV’s. The Bravia KLV-32W672E is a smart TV offering from Sony that aims to compete in the 32inch LED TV segment and amazingly is much cheaper than some of its rivals. For starters, it has a 1080p resolution with a 100Hz refresh rate but where it shines is in its picture processing, which is taken care of by the X-Reality Engine from Sony. It is a leading industry standard algorithm for post-processing that Sony uses in its higher-end TVs. There is also Sony’s own live color technology that displays accurate, true to life colors regardless of the video quality. All of that aims to improve the viewing experience, but the party piece here is Sony’s audio. It comes jam-packed with a 2.1-inch speaker setup with 8W RMS for the speakers and a 14W subwoofer. The speakers are Dolby Digital, and Dolby Pulse certified, and also, has DTS certification.
