Smart or…Not Smart
Smart TVs are growing in popularity due to their combined affordability and utility, but what exactly is a smart TV? A smart TV is a TV that connects to the internet and has other functions instead of just ordinary cable connectivity. Many of them allow you to download apps, stream directly to and from the TV, and more!
Resolution refers to the orientation of the pixels in the TV’s display, determining the amount of detail for the images on the screen.
1080p, also known as full HD, was the biggest contender until the mid 2010s when 4K TVs began to reduce in price, becoming more affordable. Nowadays, the average 4K TV has a resolution of 3840×2160 for a combined total of 8,294,400 pixels.
Every smart TV is different. While many will be straightforward, simpler models, others have improved functionalities far and beyond the standard.
A few questions that you should ask include: Does it come with an app? Does it have any interesting or unique software? How far does its remote reach? Does it support screen sharing? Questions like these will help you choose a quality TV.
TV-buying can be a stressful and upsetting time, but it shouldn’t be! If you stick with these three buying tips while doing your research, you’ll most likely find it much easier to find your favorite new TV.
