Nokia LED TV Review: More Bang For Your Buck

Nokia LED TV price in India is relatively competitive. So should you invest in one you ask? Let’s look at everything you need to know about this TV

Nokia LED TV price in India is fairly competitive.

The 32-inch HD variant will set you back Rs 12,999. For the 43-inch full HD, users will have to pay Rs 22,999, 43-inch 4K variant at Rs 28,999, the 50-inch, 55-inch, and 65-inch models are priced at Rs 33,999, Rs 39,999, and Rs 59,999 respectively.

So should you invest in a Nokia LED TV you ask? Here we have the 50-inch variant so let’s look at everything users need to know about this TV.

Design: Premium And Classy

Nokia TV does a good job making the first impression count. The sleekness puts it on par with the likes of TCL and Xiaomi. The matte, premium finish also makes it an eye-catcher.

The fabric finish of the soundbar does make it looks more up-market but it also requires more effort in cleaning. Overall, Nokia LED TV is something you will want to have in your living room or bedroom.

Picture Quality: Not The Sharpest On The Market

Nokia TV’s image quality is a mixed bag.

The setup process is straightforward and uncluttered. Nokia LED TV offers users a slew of customization options in terms of color tones, audio, and picture quality.

The flexibility you have with customization is what makes this TV stands out. For example, you can tweak color tones with hue, gamma, and other parameters that you won’t find in other Android TVs.

However, since the company uses a LED-backlit LCD display panel, the picture quality isn’t the sharpest on the market. When the content you are streaming isn’t native 4K, pictures will appear a bit soft.

Content at native 4K doesn’t face the same problem, courtesy of the flexible picture quality controls. While the micro-dimming of LED-backlit offers acceptable blacks, the level can’t hold a candle to the blackness of OLED TVs.

The whites don’t have the same level of brightness as QLED TVs but no complaint here given the price tag of the Nokia LED TV.

Software Is The Star Of The Show

What sets this Nokia TV apart is the software enhancement. The TV comes equipped with a dedicated FastCast app that allows you to stream content from Android, iOS, Mac, and Windows devices.

The TV also has some very handy features baked into it, like the music mode that allows you to play your YouTube playlist with the display switched off. This feature is a piece of good news for those who don’t have separate speakers as it makes use of the Onkyo soundbar only.

Other useful features include a night mode that reduces the display brightness by 20%, a sleep mode that allows you to play your favorite playlist and then go to bed.

The remote shortcuts and the software enhancements also let you adjust audio and picture quality without pausing what you are streaming.

Sound Quality: Clear And Loud

Nokia LED TV has its own soundbar with Onkyo drivers featuring 18W tweeters, a 30W ‘QuatroX’ speaker, and 48W audio. The setup has Onkyo and Dolby Audio surround sound certification, and given the fact that it’s a TV speaker, the sound quality users have is very impressive.

What it offers isn’t surround audio. What impresses us here is the loudness. While the depth and warmness of the speaker can’t be compared with those of dedicated sound bars, they are enough for casual content like TV soaps and sports.

Given the price tag of the Nokia LED TV, we have no reason to expect the same level of warmness and depth found on flagship OLED TVs.

Remote: Ergonomically Handy

The remote that comes with this TV is sleeker than most of Nokia’s older generation models.

While it’s made out of plastic, it doesn’t feel flimsy or cheap at all. It comes with shortcut buttons for Zee5 and Netflix. The settings shortcut button is at the top-right and it allows users to control picture quality on the fly.

Nokia LED TV remote is nothing to write home about except for the fact that it does its job well.

Verdict: Should You Get This TV?

Overall, this Nokia smart TV is reliable. Its sharpness isn’t the best on the market, but given its price, there is nothing to complain about here.

On the bright side, the TV offers a wide array of options for you to control picture quality. Plus, the price of Rs 33,999 in exchange for a decent 50-inch TV is a very sweet deal.

However, if the best picture quality is what you are after, Nokia LED TV might not be the one for you.
