DETAILED REVIEW OF THE REALME SMART 32-INCH FULL HD LED TV
The realme 32-inch TV is very impressive with what it had to offer. Today we have a 32-inch FHD TV from realme. Simply put, this TV has the same flaws that we saw in 2020 with the 43-inch Full HD TV with HDR performance and the inability to change picture settings when watching content from built-in streaming services.

REALME 32-INCH FHD HDR TV: PICTURE AND DISPLAY QUALITY
Let’s start with the most important aspect of the TV: the display panel and picture quality. The television supports Full HD resolution as well as HDR 10. We measured a peak brightness of about 300 nits and a sustained brightness of about 250 nits.
REALME 32-INCH FHD HDR TV: PERFORMANCE IN HDR
The TV can show HDR 10 content from both the TV’s native apps and an external device. It should be noted, however, that the TV only supports HDCP 1.4. The overall experience of the TV left us wanting more when it came to HDR performance.
SDR PERFORMANCE OF THE REALME 32-INCH FHD HDR TV
The TV’s SDR performance was far superior to its HDR performance. We watched movies in SDR such as Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation, Spider-Man: Homecoming, Young Sheldon, and others, and the experience was quite enjoyable. This worked perfectly for all of the SDR content we watched. When I plugged in an external device and changed the picture presets, the results were mixed. In Spider-Man, for example, the Standard preset, while slightly cool, provided an overall pleasant picture performance. Spidey’s suit is rich in reds and blues. When you switch to the Movie preset it shows the clear background.
BUILD AND DESIGN OF THE REALME 32-INCH FHD HDR TV
Given the TV’s price, we don’t expect it to have a fantastic design. The TV has a plastic shell, and while the front face of system that surround the display aren’t the thinnest we’ve seen, they’re thin enough not creating any problem with the viewing experience. The plastic feet that hold the TV in place are quite sturdy. We have three HDMI ports, two USB ports, a LAN port, an antenna, AV and digital audio out, and all of the ports are on one side. It also has Wi-Fi (2.4 GHz only) and Bluetooth 5.0 support.
BOTTOM LINE: REALME 32-INCH FHD HDR TV
The TV’s SDR performance is excellent, but its HDR performance is subpar. The inability to control picture settings when consuming content through built-in apps is reminiscent of flaws found in realme TVs in 2020. The TV’s audio output is good, and the smart capabilities work well.
