The 32A4GT is a 32 inch HD TV from Hisense, launched in the year 2021. It features a True 8-bit IPS panel. The maximum resolution it can achieve is 1366 x 768 @ 60 Hz with a pixel density of 49 ppi.
Now, the next important feature of a display that defines picture quality is its Color Gamut.
Hisense has not provided a color gamut rating for this TV. So we have to take a guess. This unit comes with an IPS panel and these panels are known to produce great colors by default. So we can assume the sRGB coverage (equivalent) on this TV to be 70% or above. This TV may not produce perfect colors, but for content viewing or gaming, it is surely more than enough.
What is Color gamut ?
Color gamut specification of a display indicates the range of colors that the display can display.
In layman terms, this specification tells the ability of a TV to produce accurate colors. A panel with low color gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), so the image produced will look "washed out" in colors.
It is specified in different units - sRGB(most popular), NTSC, DCI P3 to name a few.
But don't worry, here is a chart that you can use to choose a TV with good color accuracy.
Now, after color gamut, the static contrast of a TV similarly impacts its picture quality.
Understanding the static contrast ratio
A TV with low static contrast ratio will not produce deep enough blacks and possibly can bleed backlight as in the images below:The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
The static contrast ratio of above TV is rated 800:1. So make sure you get a TV with a static contrast of >= 1000:1. Ofcourse, More is better.
Static contrast ratio and resolution go hand in hand when it comes to details. To put it into perspective, a TV with low contrast ratio will show both dark gray and black as black, so lesser detail overall.
If given a choice, always prefer a FHD TV with high contrast ratio over a 4K TV with low contrast ratio.
There is no mention of this specification in this TV's official datasheet. Once again we have to make an assumption. In general, IPS panels come with a static contrast ratio between 700:1 - 1500:1. As for a TV launched in 2021, we can assume the ratio of Hisense 32A4GT to be >= 1200:1.
HDR is also supported on this TV in form of HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) and HDR.
Coming to brightness, the peak brightness the Hisense 32A4GT can achieve is 250 nits. The panel of this TV is powered by Direct LED backlight technology.
If you are not into gaming, you can safely ignore these specifications. But if you are also planning to use the TV for gaming or use it as a PC monitor, you would want to take a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.
Unfortunately, this TV isn't suitable for gaming as its rated input lag is 35 ms and response time is N/A.
What is Input lag ?
This lag is the amount of time at which key-presses/mouse movements changes the content of the screen. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.
But ideally, look for a TV that features an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.
Ergonomics and Dimensions
Speaking of ergonomics — VESA mount is supported on this TV with an interface size of 100 x 200 mm. The unit doesn't come with Swivel, Tilt or Pivot support.
The TV measures 32 inches vertically and 28.23 inches horizontally. It is just 3.39 inches thick.
In total this TV weighs approximately 3.9 kilograms (including stand). Without stand, it weighs 3.8 Kilograms.
