Positioning

Realme continues to practice its approach, to give the buyer a favorable price / quality ratio, and at the same time try to highlight their product with certain features. In the segment of smart TVs, the rise of offers of inexpensive solutions, a diagonal of 32 inches can be bought at a bargain price, but you should always pay attention to the quality of the matrix and sound, here all manufacturers save in a certain way. Realme did not strive to make a TV with a minimum price, as this crosses out the possibility of putting a brighter matrix, adjusting the sound. As a result, the model in question looks like an attempt to give a universal smart TV that will suit almost anyone.

This model has everything you need for a smart TV, plus the company has added a second remote control (usual for grandparents, small for young people who have mastered such devices). There is a noticeable desire to make the TV universal, a model that suits very different categories of customers. I think that realme TV is the choice of those who do not want to overpay for a TV from a big company, but at the same time are looking for a smart device.

Design, dimensions, controls

The box with the TV is very light, it seems that they forgot to put the TV in there! No wonder, because with the legs the TV weighs only 3.7 kilograms, and the legs are included in the kit, they are easy to screw into place.

The body plastic is rough, inexpensive – this is clearly seen from its surface and thickness. But it should be noted that despite the external simplicity, such plastic is wearable, that is, nothing will happen to it. The company even carried out shock loads, looked at what would happen to the TV when it falls from different heights. Why do this for a device that will stand in one place or hang on the wall, I do not know.

For those who want to hang the TV on the wall, there are four screws for fastening, you will have to buy the equipment separately, it is universal.

The profile of the TV is not the thinnest, but this does not play a big role, in the end it is standing or hanging somewhere – it does not protrude much. The frames around the screen are not very noticeable, which is good.

The TV has no control keys, only at the bottom of the remote control unit, plus a power button right there.

This arrangement of the block is not always good for an IR remote control (the one in the old style), then use a second remote control, it works via bluetooth. It turns out that the manufacturer turned the relative disadvantage into an advantage. Batteries for remote controls AAA, they are not included in the kit, so you should take care of this.

The comb with connectors on the rear panel is located quite conveniently, in addition to standard AV, you have two USB connectors, SPDIF, three HDMI. The maximum number of different connectors, so it’s easy to connect audio or other devices.

Build quality, how the TV fits into the interior, all this does not raise a single question. Externally, the model does not differ from the more expensive counterparts of any manufacturer, its inexpensive nature is hidden from the eye of the observer.

Picture quality and screen

The screen resolution is HD, which some might consider insufficient, however, for a budget model, this is normal. A brightness of 400 nits made it possible to implement HDR10 (for the content of some platforms, for example, the same Netflix). For many competing models, it is the brightness that is the weak point, it can be 200-250 nits, which is not much. It is unlikely that you will watch TV outdoors, but inside such brightness is enough for the eyes.

The perception of the screen directly depends on your expectations, if you are used to expensive models with FullHD resolution, then the matrix will seem simple to you. In some scenes, there may be a slight overexposure of white, the picture does not always look perfect, but there are few such flaws and all of them are generally typical for budget models, miracles do not happen. I can’t complain about the screen, I rather like it than not. You can live with such a screen.

A frequency of 60 Hz is expected, you really didn’t expect another hertz from a model of this price level? In total, you can find fault with a strong desire, but then there simply will not be a budget model of a smart TV that will satisfy you on the screen.

Sound – Dolby Atmos and more

Oddly enough, but I will highlight the sound in this TV, as it is outstanding. Loud, clear and spacious – which is achieved by two paired speakers (2×2, tweeter and woofer). The total power is 24 watts, but you definitely won’t turn the volume up to the maximum, too loud.

For those who are accustomed to good sound, this model gives the usual comfort and this is a huge achievement, in budget models there is often an approach to fuck off when they put one speaker, which of course reproduces the sound, but nothing more. Sometimes it even plays it very loudly, but you don’t get pleasure from it. Everything is fine here.

Software, performance, voice control

There is no point in describing the standard features of Android TV, you can install your own applications, there are pre-installed ones, but they are not so important. Voice control works well, allowing you to quickly search for the shows or information you want. The initial setup will also not cause problems.

The processor used here is quite productive, visually there are no big brakes in the menu, calling applications. Everything works well, the TV is responsive.

A typical smart TV, I note that ChromeCast is separately supported, although this is a standard feature and there is nothing special about it. I note that WiFi here is single-band, but it works well, there are no complaints about it.

Impression

Somehow, quite imperceptibly, smart TVs have become inexpensive, and at the same time have improved their performance. For realme TV, we see a good price / quality ratio, the price of the model at 16,990 rubles looks justified. Pluses of the model in a wide number of connectors, a bright matrix, as well as excellent sound. And a typical Android TV inside. As a competitor, you can consider a model from Xiaomi with a similar diagonal – it has a worse, albeit slightly, matrix, as well as sound quality. If we take Russian models from different companies, then they are noticeably inferior in quality, albeit cheaper. In total, it turns out that this TV does not offer the lowest cost, but it is good in terms of price / quality ratio. You need an inexpensive and decent TV, you should pay attention to it.
