What should you look for when shopping for your TV?

Shopping for a TV has become more complicated than ever before. With the advance in technology and with the ever-changing trends, finding a good TV that goes hand-in-hand with the changing life needs more than just the eye.

With so many television sets on the market, sieving through the messages and arriving at a gadget that fits your needs is not a walk in the park. This piece will give you a simple guide of what you should look out for while shopping for your television set.

Where should you start?

The Screen

The most important thing in a TV is the screen. The days of one having to struggle to see images on their TV screen are long gone. And among the screen, there is a lot to consider in terms of panel technology and how it affects your viewing experience.

Choose from an array of technologies, such as OLED, NanoCell, UHD or even standard LED, there are still plenty of new screen technologies such as OLED and QLED. For instance, LG Electronics has the LG Nano85 86” ((available also in 65” and 55”) that has a widescreen and the latest catch.

Screen Resolution

Decide whether you want to go for 8K, 4K, or HD. I love 4K. The 4K models have four times the number of pixels as current HDTV screens. I am talking 2,160 horizontal lines or 3840 x 2160 pixels.

Resolution describes the number of pixels that make up the picture on a display, described in terms of horizontal rows and vertical columns. More pixels translate into the sharper picture and finer details, so higher resolution is (almost always) better.


Most reviews are genuine and from customers who have experienced the product or experts who know how the product works. Before buying your TV, it is important to shop around for information about it. What are people talking about? What are the pros and cons of having it?

Compare two or three reviews and weigh your options. Decide whether the information you have about the TV set is enough for you to make a decision. Friends who have similar TV can be of great help to guiding you towards reaching a decision.

The Brand

There are brands that are known for quality such as LG Electronics.  Even other brands get most of its TVs from LG. So, I will say, go for LG brands. Buy directly from their centers or online shops. Let them deliver and set it up for you. This will save you a lot of trouble and the confusion that might lead you into buying a TV that is not even authentic.

The Color

This should not even be a discussion. Who doesn’t love colors? Who still goes for a TV with colors that hurt the eyes? TVs with high resolutions (as already discussed) have a huge and amazing color too. Look at the Real 4K NanoCell Display for instance. It has Nano Color, Nano Accuracy, Nano Bezel, Local Dimming.

Artificial Intelligence

Your TV has to be smart. It has to perform some simple functions like voice recognition, telling you what the weather is like, communicating with other gadgets in your living room such as fridge, vacuum cleaner, among others.

LG Electronics, for instance, have their own AI known as LG ThinQ that is more than magical. Their NanoCell 80, for instance, has AI ThinQ™ with a Built-in Google Assistant & Alexa, Apple Airplay 2 & Homekit, making your TV more than a companion.
