Yes, primarily for DTH viewing.

 

What is the purpose of android in a TV ?

 

I mean Netflix etc stuff is already there ,what is the actual effective use of android ?

 

Will Need to get a demo of pixellight vs ifflacon.

 

 

 

With Android you get access to lot more apps than a smart TV (like Pixelight ) and you also get Google assistant.  

So if you don't want access to other apps or use Google assistant in searching videos then Android is not needed . 

Yeah see if you can get a demo it will help you in deciding

Can anybody tell what's the difference between this and ifflacon of 35k.

 

Went to offline store and they said the 28k one is online only model and can offer the 35k one at 33k and everyone's seems to be praising this offline model.

Don't know about this one.

Price seems a bit fishy.

 

Would go for vu pixelight then but ifflacon at 28k seeming too good a deal.

The offline model - k2a was available online as well but now it's out of stock and is a year old model .

Major difference K31 has less brightness and contrast ratio as compared to k2a . It does have better sound though . 

Yeah 28k is a good deal but since your TV would be used for watching DTH as well and VU upscaling technology is much better than that of iffalcon, So I would suggest VU pixelight. 

 

Also VU Pixelight is giving 1000Rs off on using any prepaid methods like CC/DC/Net banking/EMI . So net cost comes to be 31k.

Nice comparison.

 

Yes, The upscaling thing is nice.

 

Now I m headed towards vu, tricky as 8k difference is huge after 28000.

Better to get Android I think therefore pixel light seeming like an in between thing where you are compromising both : budget and feature.

@Krazyniks yes would use SBI card to get 10% off tomorrow , can be used in all the three

 

Premium, pixelight or iffalcon between the three.

 

Premium is the clear winner but for an added 8k and also out of stock.

 I would use it only to watch football (once a week) others will use it to watch star plus.

I don't think difference matters when Viewing star Plus.

As even tcl vs lg 4k showed marginal difference at store.

Might get hotstar instead of DTH, not sure. DTH is more convenient but expensive. Hotstar doesn't upscale right ? Everything is already at best ?

 

And I might or might not use PS4 pro on it. (Currently using it on 32 inch normal Sony)

I think @Sach4life has VU Premium, you can check with him for some feedback.

 

Quality of VU Premium is fantastic for the price. Great value for money tv. 4k content looks fantastic and upscaling is really good. I can't compare it with Ifflacon as i haven't seen it but i definitely recommend VU

The SBI discount on all 3 TV'S is there yes but i was just saying pixelight is giving additional 1k off apart from SBI card discount .

Anyways since you are heading towards Android TV so it doesn't matter . 

 

VU premium - there's definitely some problem with seller / stock . 55 inch TV is rarely available on my location ( Indore ) but it's available for Gwalior but again not available for Surat and neither  Nagpur . 43/50 inch models are almost always available though .

 

Hotstar streams channels / programme's to the best available quality which is generally FHD. Your TV would again do the upscaling to it's native 4k resolution .

Upscaling from FHD to 4k is easy most TV's do it well . Upscaling SD/720p content is not so easy where only few TV's do well .

 

If you do use it for gaming then with VU premium you can enjoy HDR gaming with your PS4 pro . HDR on these budget TV's is for namesake generally but VU premium supports Dolby Vision in addition to HDR10+ so it should offer better gaming experience than iffalcon tv.

U mean it ll be 1750 (10% discount cap) plus 1000 discount.

 

Total 2750 discount for paying via SBI debit card for pixelight ?

Yes . 

It's showing 31k for me now after 1k discount by just selecting on net banking option or my hdfc card . Generally card offer discount (SBI in this case ) is additional . So you should get 2750 discount .

Damn ,I would want to get vu pixelight then.

Tough choice.

Android option seems a must but picture quality should be the priority.

Go for 40inch price difference is not much. Most TV will support those apps natively. Another reason to go for 40inch is most 32inch will not be full HD.

There seems space constraint hence opting for 32

@GunnerY2J If you have good net, you can just side load an app called Oreo TV.. Its got all the channels in there for free along with options for selecting the video quality as well.. They were providing Jio TV and Hotstar content all for free but now I guess its gone but they have alternates to it and you get live TV covered in it.. Content wise its got some good movies as well.. So worth a check..

 

I just watch matches when it telecasts on a channel I havent subbed in Dish TV.. Easy to view even with mobile data..

Why not go for 50 inch VU premium and enjoy both Android and better picture Quality.

Size difference between 50 and 55 inch TV isnt that huge imo

Even 50 inch isn't available either here.

Need for hall so 55 should be good but might have taken 50 if available.

I think pixelite should do it for DTH viewing, will decide tomorrow if there are any more changes.

 

@funnyadit use mobile data as well.

Such apps like oreo TV are only on playstore or vu store is good enough ?

Planning to get a TV - 55”, Don’t want to spend more than 80k. It will only be used for Gaming and Streaming content. 

 

Confused between regular Sony LED 4k or Samsung QLEDs. Do budget QLEDs have better picture quality compared to sony LEDs?

 

which models should i consider?
