DYLECT 32IPS20S

DYLECT is an Indian electronics brand that deals in Televisions and mobile accessories. The company has some affordable smart TV models in the market. I got a chance to use DYLECT 32IPS20S 32-inch HD TV and test. Based on my experience, here’s the review.

DYLECT 32IPS20S smart TV box has a big “Made in India” label on the box. Inside the box, you get LED TV, Table Top Stand, Wall-mount kit, Remote control with battery, and a user manual with a warranty card.

In terms of design and build, this smart TV is good. The TV has all-plastic construction and is light in weight. It comes with table stands and wall-mount both. So, You also don’t need to buy a wall mount separately. You can use it the way you like. You also don’t need any installation service. You can do it yourself easily. In case you need, DYLECT also offers installation service.

There are multiple connectivity ports. At the backside of the panel, it has 2x HDMI ports, headphone jack, LAN port, RF port, and Coax Port. On the left, it has 2x USB ports and 2x AV Input Slot ports. So, you can give inputs from multiple old and modern sources. From the TV home screen, you can also quickly switch to any video source whenever you want. On the right side of the TV, it has physical buttons for controlling video sources, channels, settings, and audio. In case you are unable to find the remote, use these buttons.

 

It has an LED display panel offering 1366 x 768 pixels resolution and 250 nits of brightness.  Now let’s talk about the display quality.  The display panel looks fine offering good brightness and fine colors. Colors are a bit over-saturated and you will notice it in some scenes showing blue sky and green grass. But overall, everything looks fine in terms of picture quality. Viewing angles of the display panel are also good. It natively supports most of the popular video formats.

If I talk about specs, it has a dual-core processor, 512 MB of RAM, and 4GB internal storage. That’s fine for a budget TV. This smart TV runs on Android Tv 5.1.1 that is outdated. Now, most of the smart TVs come with Android 9. The UI is clean and responsive. You can quickly switch from one video source to another, open apps, or access the App Store. The Settings window only offers options to change the language. input method and System Recovery. The Miracast feature lets you mirror your phone to the TV to watch the phone’s content on the big screen. I also missed a few key features like Google Assistant. There’s no option to change the Brightness or contrast of the display and no picture modes.

I also feel that software optimization could have been better. I faced occasional lag on some apps like Prime Video. Apps like Hotstar, Netflix, and YouTube were smooth. There’s also a TV Assistant app that lets you optimize the TV to boost the performance. It lets you optimize RAM, perform a network speed test, and uninstall apps.

It has dual speakers rated to offer 24 Watts Output. Speakers are placed at the bottom side. I liked the sound output. Speakers are also loud enough to enjoy content without needing external speakers.

This smart TV comes with a full-size IR remote with several keys to control the TV operation. There’s a dedicated search key that opens Google search. Use the home key from any screen to come to the Home screen at once. There’s a mouse key to enable the mouse pointer. You can also add Wireless Keyboard & Mouse. It helps while browsing the web on any web browser. There are dedicated media playback control keys to play pause, forward, backward, or stop the content playing on the screen.Dylect 32IPS20S 32-inch Review

Neither the TV nor the remote has a microphone. So, you cannot use voice search even if many Android apps support. You will have to use the onscreen keyboard for all the input options.

I also found that the WiFi antennas used on the device are not efficient. I installed the TV in the bedroom while the router was in the hall. The distance of TV from the router was around 7-8 meters. TV’s network test hardly touched 1.5MBps. Mostly it remained under 1 MBps. So, I always faced trouble in streaming HD content. When I kept the TV next to the router, I saw a better speed as it could touch 3MBps. It was still slower than my internet speed, but now it could stream HD content properly. It also doesn’t support dual-band WiFi, so you cannot use high speed 5GHz wifi band.

If you do not want wifi latency issues, you can connect the smart TV using an ethernet cable for improved speed. If you have a set-top box, you already have input options. You can also connect the soundbar easily.

Wrap Up

DYLECT 32IPS20S seems a good smart TV in the budget of Rs. 10000. This smart HD TV offers a satisfactory Android TV experience. Picture quality is fine, sound quality is good and the App Store lets you download more apps. TV is not a product you will change frequently. So, I recommend you increase the budget up to Rs. 15000 and get a better model offering Full HD resolution and better software. If your budget is strictly up to Rs. 10000, then you are left with a few choices and can consider DYLECT 32IPS20S. This is also a made in India product.
