TVs are getting incrementally better with each passing day. What you are buying today will probably be yesterday’s news in a year’s time with better options available at lower prices. So it is redundant to buy the costliest or cheapest TV, you need to buy as per your needs.
So, the next question is whether you should go for Full HD or UHD. Should you go for Smart or Non-Smart TV? Well, everything depends on your individual usage. If you go for a Smart TV, consider how many times you are going to use the Smart Features. You can always buy additional smart TV boxes for lower prices.
Same goes with the UHD 4K LED televisions; you need to consider the source of content. If you do not have a lot of 4K content, it makes sense to go for Full-HD TV instead. Viewing angles and connectivity options are also relevant.
