Buying a new smart TV can be a confusing experience. With all of the technical specifications and unfamiliar features, how do you choose the right TV for you?
We’re here with this helpful guide to help you buy your first smart TV.
Remember that a smart TV can’t replicate the internet browsing experience of a tablet or a computer, and nearly any media streamer can turn a regular TV into somewhat of a smart TV.
With that being said, having the apps already installed saves you needing to buy yet another device.
Many TVs out there in homes already have smart functionality built in – even if the features aren’t being put to use by their owners – so don’t use that as your sole benchmark for choosing a new TV. Instead, think about 4K resolution if you want a TV that will take you into the next generation of broadcasting.
A 120Hz refresh rate is also beneficial, though you can generally ignore things like contrast-ratio specifications. You’re better off testing actual TVs in person to see which style you prefer – even if you end up buying the television online.
