2. iFFALCON by TCL 43K71

iffalcon-by-tcl-43k71
Runner-Up Pick
  • HDR-enabled 4K UHD display
  • Pure Android OS TV
  • Rich connectivity options

TCL is a Chinese consumer electronics manufacturer that started with selling data storage products across the world.

The company later diversified its product lineup and became a major player in the LED TV market. TCL now markets budget LED TVs under the iFFALCON brand name in India.

The iFFALCON 43K71 by TCL is a 43-inch 4K HDR Smart LED television which comes at a fraction of the price that its competitors offer for their similarly specced products.

Build Quality and Design

The iFFALCON 43K71 follows a minimalistic design approach on this product. Nothing seems out of place and too much eye-catchy.

The bezels, though not minimal, don’t seem like too much mainly because of the larger size display compensating it.

The entire construction is of plastic which doesn’t feel premium but does just right for its price.

Display

iFFALCON has done the right thing by choosing an A+ grade high-quality 4K Ultra HD HDR display that outperforms even some of the established brands in the market in terms of its visual quality.

A+ grade achromatic panels don’t have the signature colour tints which manufacturers tend to apply during the production, resulting in much better colour accuracy.

This 43-inch 3840×2160 pixel display features TCL’s signature LED backlight technology that enhances the colour gamut and contrast ratio to provide you with a better picture.

With the Dynamic Noise Reduction (DNR) technology built-in, this LED TV reduces signal interference with other electronic equipment in the vicinity and delivers detailed images and videos.

Overall, the iFFALCON 43K71 packs a bright and vivid 4K UHD panel that is worth every penny you spend on this product.

Sound

Budget LED TVs usually neglect the sound department altogether. This may be due to the fear of overshooting the expected marketing price.

With the iFFALCON 43K71, the two-channel speakers on this television offer a surround sound experience which will make your viewing experience a bit immersive but for a full-blown experience, we suggest you invest in a good home theatre/Bluetooth speaker.

Miscellaneous

This Android smart TV has its own set of preinstalled apps such as Netflix and Youtube and comes with the default Google Play Store for more apps.

This 4K smart TV television from iFFALCON 43K71 comes with a generous supply of output ports – 2 HDMI and a single USB port for connecting other devices and peripherals.

The iFFALCON 43K71 comes with an auto volume leveller feature. This will automatically adjust sudden volume fluctuations without blowing your ears off violently.

With the USB port supporting a wide variety of multimedia formats, you can view movies and photos of different formats without converting.

Verdict

The iFFALCON 47K31 is one of the best 4K LED TVs under Rs.30,000 that delivers excellent picture quality with finer details, sporting a 4K panel.

3. Motorola 43SAUHDM

Feature Rich SMART TV
  • Pure Android TV OS
  • Crisp 4K UHD display
  • Dolby vision + HDR 10 support

Motorola is a prominent smartphone manufacturer in the world which had its fair share of success in the Indian market.

As more and more smartphone manufacturers are foraying into the smart TV market, the Motorola 43SAUHDM is the latest to the party priced under Rs.30,000.

Design and Build Quality

The Motorola 43SAUHDM has a conventional form factor that we are familiarised from a lot of mainstream brands in the market.

The bezels around the display look thin and the big panel makes it look like a seamless front plate.

Even the stands that are provided in the box for tabletop installation is designed with intricate detailing.

The quality of materials used for construction is of high quality and feels very durable and sturdy.

Display

The Motorola 43SAUHDM LED TV has a 43-inch 4K display with a resolution of 3840 x 2160 pixels.

This display is a super bright panel with high luminance ensuring excellent screen dimming features and colour accuracy.

What this means to the end-users is that there will be no colour tint on the display and it will be able to project true to life colours more accurately on the screen.

Additionally, features such as Noise reduction and adaptive light control comes standard with this panel, making the viewing experience more immersive and enjoyable.

Smart Features

This LED television runs on stock Android 9.0 Pie operating system and supports most of the apps in the Play store such as Netflix and Amazon prime video out of the box.

Powering the Motorola 43SAUHDM LED TV inside is a quad-core processor with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of shared internal memory.

The UI of this TV is smooth and intuitive, but remember that with the limited 8GB of memory, you’re bound to run out of space after installing too many apps or games.

Connectivity and Sound Quality

This television has the same port arrangement that we have seen on other LED TVs of the same price range.

There are 3 HDMI ports and 2 USB ports that support a wide range of codecs.

Additionally, an RJ45 port is present for the wired internet connectivity if you prefer it rather than using the WiFi.

Verdict

The Motorola 43SAUHDM is the best bet for someone looking for a full HD stock Android TV with smart features at an affordable budget.

4. Kodak 43CA2022

 blaupunkt-bla55bu680
Best Value for Money LED TV
  • Excellent contrast ratio
  • 4K UHD display
  • Stock Android TV OS

Kodak has been releasing low-cost LED TVs that offer 4K panels at a very competitive price in the Indian market.

The 43CA2022 from Kodak is a step ahead of their previous products with the smart connectivity features that come with this LED TV.

Design and build quality

Most of the budget LED TVs now selling in the market do feature a more or less the same design.

This is because the companies, instead of doing their R&D, rely on third-party OEM designs for their products.

This helps them save a lot of money in the manufacturing process.

The Kodak 43CA2022 has a relatively slim profile and has narrow bezels at the sides of the display.

All the ports are present in the backside. This might pose an issue to reach the connections when the device is wall mounted.

The plastics used in the build are of average quality and don’t feel cheap either.

Display

The Kodak 43CA2022 smart LED TV features a 43-inch LED display with a resolution of 3840×2160 pixels.

The 178-degree viewing angle makes this display ideal for a medium-sized room for an average family.

The brightness levels are a bit on the lower side with only 300 nits but the contrast levels are excellent.

The deep blacks in the visuals make the TV watching experience a lot better.

Smart TV features

The Kodak 43CA2022 TV runs on stock Android TV OS powered by an ARM Cortex quad-core processor with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage.

There is the regular Google Play store for directly downloading third-party Android apps instead of wanting to sideload them from a USB stick.

Popular apps come pre-installed and with a Wi-Fi or RJ45 connection, you can stream the contents on these sites right away.

This TV supports Miracast screen mirroring. This means that you can mirror the screen of your laptops or smartphones on to this larger display wirelessly.

Miscellaneous

The Kodak 43CA2022 TV has a total 30W sound output from the two speakers.

This TV comes with 5 sound modes that you can select according to the content you are watching.

Features such as auto volume leveller and audio equalizer are present as well.

Verdict

The Kodak 43CA2022 LED TV is a perfectly fine 4K LED TV for purchase under Rs.30,000.

With Indian specific features such as inbuilt stabilizer and moisture and dust resistance, the Kodak 43CA2022, is a smart product worth investing your hard-earned money.

Best Branded Smart TV
  • Excellent colour reproduction
  • Bluetooth connectivity
  • Google-certified Android TV

OnePlus launched the flagship Q series smart televisions last year to compete with the industry stalwarts such as Sony and Samsung.

This year OnePlus has launched a few affordable smart televisions in the Indian market priced well below Rs.30,000 to rival the offerings from companies such as Xiaomi and Realme.

Design and Build Quality

The OnePlus 43Y1 is made from plastic material all around. This makes the TV very lightweight. The quality of the construction is quite decent for the asking price.

The design looks very modern, with minimal bezels around the display and a premium piano finish on the exterior.

The included remote is very minimal and has one-click shortcut buttons for accessing Netflix, Prime Video and Youtube.

This remote has an integrated microphone which helps you search for content via voice with the help of Google voice assistant support.

Connectivity Features

The OnePlus 43Y1 sports the following connectivity options onboard:

2 HDMI ports
2 USB ports
1 RCA input
1 Optical port (audio)
RJ45 Ethernet port
Bluetooth

Display

The OnePlus 43Y1 features a 43-inch Full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

This panel is tuned to have about 20% wider colour gamut when compared to other TVs listed in this article.

The Gamma engine on this TV from OnePlus offers digital noise reduction and dynamic contrast levels which enhances the visual quality further.

Minimal bezels are one of the most prominent features of this panel from OnePlus.

This minimal bezel display offers an immersive visual consumption experience that is quite unmatched in this segment.

Smart Features

The OnePlus 43Y1 runs on Google-certified Android TV OS with Google play store, play services and play movies pre-installed.

OnePlus has added their Oxygen play skin on top for aggregating the contents in the main welcome screen.

The software seems a bit unpolished at the moment with occasional stutters but knowing OnePlus, we are sure the future updates will fix these bugs.

Speakers

The OnePlus 43Y1 has two 20W speakers on board with Dolby audio support.

These speakers sound good enough for small rooms, but we’d suggest you buy a separate speaker system for a much more immersive audio experience.

Verdict

The OnePlus 43Y1 is a smart LED TV that runs on Google-certified Android OS priced at just Rs.22,999 in the Indian market.

With its full HD sharp visuals and impressive colour reproduction, this LED TV is well worth its asking price.

6. Sony Bravia R352F

sony-bravia-r352f
 No Frills Full HD LED TV
  • Excellent display quality
  • Bright and vivid colours
  • No smart connectivity features

Sony was and is still one of the most respectable manufacturers of home appliances out there.

The Sony Bravia R352F is a Full HD LED TV from Sony with some great features hidden up its sleeve.

Design and Build Quality

The build quality of this device is exceptional.

The design itself makes sure that the premium feel equates with a stylish yet durable construction.

The uniquely designed stands which hold the TV in place on a flat surface is elegantly designed and screams the typical Sony premium build quality.

If you are a fan of wall-mounted TV’s, there are mounting brackets with plates that would fix this TV just like a photo frame that will blend with the wall seamlessly.

Display

The display on this device is a 40-inch full HD panel with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

The colour accuracy of the Sony display panel beats the competitor displays by leaps and bounds.

The screen is very bright with accurate colours, thanks to the X-Reality Pro engine.

This panel has a colour gamut of about 96% which is impressive at this price point.

The native refresh rate of this display is 50Hz but Sony’s motion flow technology enhances it to about 200Hz.

Refresh rate is the number of times the display refreshes in a second. The higher the number of refresh rate, the better the TV will be. With the increased refresh rate, the fast-moving frames will look more smooth and enjoyable.

In terms of pure display quality, we would choose this model over any other competitors on this list to be the best-LED TV priced under Rs. 40,000 in India.

Smart Features

One of the main things to note is that Sony Bravia R352F is not a smart TV. There are no smart connectivity features on this TV.

Yes, you can plug in USB sticks to stream media.

Connectivity

There are 2 HDMI ports for connecting devices like Blu-ray players, set-top boxes etc
and 1 USB ports on this LED TV.

There is an RJ 45 port for wired connectivity along with WiFi.

There are two 10W speakers on this device. The sound output is loud and clear with balanced mid and lows that enhances the overall music listening experience.

Miscellaneous

The display panel is a semi-gloss one which reflects a lot of light off the screen.

So when placed under bright lights, there might be blind spots on the screen and this may hamper the viewing experience.

Verdict

We think the Sony Bravia R352F is irreplaceable when it comes to the natural colours and excellent contrast ratio this 40-inch panel offers.

If you’re planning to purchase a television for a relatively smaller sized room, this compact LED TV will suit you the best.
