If you have a small room or limited space, a 32-inch smart TV is a great option for your entertainment needs. These models are designed to fit comfortably in compact spaces, making them ideal for bedrooms, apartments, or even RVs. Not only are they space-saving, but they are also budget-friendly, with most models priced affordably. Most popular brands today have a 32-inch option with smart features like built-in Wi-Fi and voice control on these models. Some brands even offer smart 32-inch monitors that double up as work and play-devices.
Xiaomi Smart TV 5A Pro is an LED LCD TV with Xiaomi’s vivid picture technology that boosts colours but doesn’t support HDR. Performance hardware is also above average considering what we usually see on TVs in the affordable segment. The 24W speakers support Dolby Audio, DTS:X, and DTS Virtual: X. Xiaomi’s own Patchwall launcher comes bundled with the Android TV 11 software and can be accessed via a dedicated hotkey on the remote.
Xiaomi has integrated a decent assortment of connectivity options, such as dual-band Wi-Fi for reliable wireless internet and two HDMI ports with ALLM and ARC with Dolby Atmos Passthrough. If you are looking for something yet more affordable, you may also consider the regular Xiaomi Mi TV 5A which offers similar features, but slightly downgraded performance hardware.
Unlike most other affordable 32-inch TVs, the OnePlus TV Y1S includes support for decoding HDR10+, HDR10 and HLG. The HD-ready TV also supports ALLM which automatically triggers the game mode as soon as you connect a gaming console via its HDMI port. The 20W speakers support Dolby Audio to provide a more immersive audio experience while watching movies, TV shows, or listening to music.
With Android 11 TV, users can enjoy all the regular Google ecosystem perks, including Chromecast Built-in. OnePlus Connect 2.0 app can be used to control the TV via smartphones and OnePlus smartwatches.
Samsung T4340 is an HD-ready LED LCD TV in the brand’s “Wondertainment” series. The TV supports HDR and comes with several of Samsung’s proprietary picture enhancement technologies like PurColor and Mega Contrast enhancer. The TV supports Dolby Digital Plus audio and users can also access free content via Samsung TV Plus app.
The TV also includes a PC Mode using which you can access Microsoft Office documents from the cloud, mirror your laptop screen to the TV or even remotely access your PC. Samsung doesn’t ship the table stand with the TV, but users can ask for one at the time of installation.
The standout feature of the TCL S5400 is its Full HD Resolution LED LCD display, which is also supported by HDR10 and TCL’s micro-dimming technology. The display panel is framed by narrow bezels on three sides, lending it a sleek look. The TV also boasts 24W sound output, which enhances the viewing experience.
While the TV ships with a Google TV interface, it only supports single-band 2.4GHz Wi-Fi and has an RJ45 ethernet port. The quad-core processor is paired with 16GB of storage, which is more generous than what you typically find in most conventional 32-inch TVs.
Sony Bravia W830K benefits from Sony’s proprietary image processing technologies like X-Reality PRO and Motion Flow XR200. The 32-inch HD panel supports HDR10 and HLG to reproduce vivid high dynamic range content. The TV runs Google TV interface but also integrates support for other popular ecosystems. It has Alexa integration and is also compatible with Apple Airplay and Apple Homekit.
Sony’s Clear Phase technology can analyze and fix inaccuracies in the audio from 20W speakers. By doing this, the technology eliminates any unevenness in the sound and provides clear and natural audio with consistent volume for all frequencies.
If you are looking to purchase a compact 32-inch TV that can function as both an entertainment hub and a PC monitor, the Samsung M5 is definitely worth considering. While it is more of a monitor than a TV, it does come with independent Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, app support, and even a remote control.
The sharp Full HD resolution VA LCD panel supports HDR10, and there is also a game mode that optimizes display settings for a better gaming experience. In addition, the M5 supports Samsung DeX, Office 365, and Google Duo apps to enhance productivity. Apple devices can be wirelessly connected to the Smart Monitor using AirPlay. However, it’s important to note that the monitor doesn’t come with a TV tuner and therefore cannot be used to watch regular cable or satellite TV. Depending on your budget, you may also go for the 4K options like M7 and M8.
