Frequently Asked Questions


1) What are the important factors to consider when buying an Android TV?

If you want to choose an Android TV yourself, you may want to look for these essential features.

Display – If your budget is less than 15000 Rupees, you don’t really have a choice other than getting an HD Ready display panel i.e. screen resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels. If the budget is under 20000 Rupees, you can go with the Full HD option. For under 30000 Rupees we highly recommend this TV from Sanyo (they’re the best, seriously) as they provide a 4K Ultra HD display for such a low price. Above this budget, you don’t have to worry about the display as it is going to be high quality (aka. 4K Ultra HD) anyways. You may also want to check if the latest display technologies are featured in your Android TV (like HDR10, for example).

Another thing you might want to consider about the display is whether it is an LED display, an OLED display or a QLED display. Most affordable TVs nowadays come with an LED display but if you are willing to shell out large amount of cash in exchange for a significant display improvement, an OLED or a QLED display might be better for you. You can learn more about the difference between LED, OLED and QLED here.

tv connectivity
Make sure your TV has HDMI ports if you want to connect it to gaming consoles.

Refresh Rate – The refresh rate of your display is another thing you may want to consider. It is basically the number of times the picture on your screen refreshes per second (motion-smoothness). If you watch a lot of sports or even action movies, you want to have as much refresh rate as possible on your TV.

Audio – The audio quality is something you can ignore if you have some kind of an external sound system like a soundbar or a home theatre. But if you don’t, the most important thing to look for is the power output (wattage) of the built-in speakers on your TV. The more wattage the powerful the sound. Also, support for decent sound-processing technologies like Dolby Atmos and maybe some AI-powered optimization would just be a cherry on top.

Size – Size is an important factor to consider when buying a TV. Considering the size of your room or more specifically the distance between your furniture and your TV – there is only one correct size for you. If your room is bigger, buy a bigger TV if you don’t want to squint and watch. You can learn more here.

Connectivity – Make sure your TV has the right amount of HDMI and USB ports according to your needs. You can connect your TV to devices like Blu-Ray players, Gaming consoles, set-top boxes and hard drives. You should also look for some kind of screen mirroring feature to allow streaming from other devices although Android TVs [the certified ones] almost always come with Chromecast built-in. On the wireless connectivity front, always check if your TV has support for Bluetooth because if it doesn’t you’ll regret it later.

Android OS – This factor is really important, as there is a lot of confusion around TVs with Android OS in the market. Always look for TVs that have the Google Certified Android TV OS and not an Android-Based OS. You also want to check if the TV supports OTA (over-the-air) updates for the operating system.

Apps – Make sure the TV is licensed for the applications that you want to install. That said, most Android TV(s) are licensed for popular applications like Netflix, Youtube, Prime Video and even Hotstar. If you want our recommendation on what apps to get, check out our list of the best Android TV apps.


2) Which Android TVs brand is the best in India?

The best Android Television brands should ideally be selected according to the above-mentioned factors. Considering those factors, brands like Sanyo, TCL, VU, Sony and even OnePlus stand out as ideal options. This doesn’t mean other brands are not good, but just make sure you research thoroughly before you buy from them. In the budget price range (around ₹20000), we think Sanyo is the best. If you want to know more about TV brands in general, we recommend you check out this article.


3) What is the difference between a Certified Android TV & an Android-Based TV?

Android-Based TV ✗

These are TVs that run on an open-source version of the Android operating system. This version of Android is programmed to work on phones and tablets, not TVs. This operating system doesn’t support Google Play Services officially. It is not optimized for television screens so apps are not going to feel exactly intuitive. For example, the Youtube app is going to look and feel much better on a certified Android TV.

Certified Android TV ✓

These TVs are operated on the official Google Certified Android TV OS. This version of Android TV is fully optimized to work on bigger screens with lower RAM. Another important difference is that certified Android TVs always come with inbuilt Chromecast. Android-Based TVs are never going to have built-in Chromecast. Plus, you can always install apps that are not available on the Google Play Store for TVs using downloaded APK files and they’ll run perfectly fine. So it is always better to go with the certified Android TVs than the makeshift Android-Based TVs.


4) How is an Android TV different from a Smart TV? (Android TV vs Smart TV)

Another misconception that we wanted to address is that people tend to think an Android TV is somehow different than regular smart TVs. Android TVs are just smart TVs that just run on the Android TV operating system. Although it must be said that Android TVs are probably the best in the smart TV market. There are other operating systems that are worth considering, for example, the WebOS and Tizen but in our opinion, Android is still the best.


5) What are the ways to install apps on Android TVs in India?

This is an important one. There are two ways to install apps on your Android TV. One is the traditional way of going to the Google Play Store for TVs through the app itself and installing apps from there. We would not recommend doing this for most of the apps, though. While the apps on the Play Store for TVs are optimized for TVs, most of the times they lack proper updates. Like, take Netflix as an example. The Android TV version of the application has a two-star rating on the Play Store as opposed to the main Netflix app which has a 4.5 rating. So, we highly recommend checking the rating of the apps before installing them.

best android tv apps
Sideloading Apps for the win!

The second way is to sideload apps on your Android TV. Just download the APK of the app you want to install on your PC or phone, transfer the APK file to your TV using USB or cloud and install using any file manager. Make sure you have allowed the installation of apps from unknown sources in the settings first. One more thing, the sideloaded apps will not appear in the default Android TV launcher. You’ll first have to install the Sideload Launcher app from the inbuilt Play Store for that. And that’s it! You have unlocked the full potential of your Android TV!


There you have it! Our list of the best Android TVs in India in 2021. If you have any further queries you can ask them below in the comments or you can contact us via email. Goodbye for now!
