ABOUT THIS TV

Nokia 5500D 400x400 Image Nokia 5500D

Launched in the year 2022, the 5500D is a 43" 4K TV from Nokia. It features a 10-bit IPS panel. The max. resolution it can achieve is 3840 x 2160 with a refresh rate of 60 Hz and a pixel density of 103 ppi.

Picture Quality

After screen size and resolution, the next important specification of a display that will impact your viewing experience is its Color Gamut.

Nokia has not provided a color gamut rating for this TV. So we have to take a guess.

As this TV comes with a 10bit IPS panel, we can safely assume its equivalent sRGB coverage to be 100% or above. Undoubtedly The color accuracy on this TV will be Lifelike!

What is Color gamut ?

Color gamut specification of a display is the measurement of the range of colors that the display can produce.

Meaning, it determines the ability of a display to produce accurate colors. A TV with low color gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), the result would be a "washed out" picture quality.

Different manufacturers use different measurement standards to specify color gamut. Viz — sRGB (most popular), NTSC, DCI P3 etc.

But don't worry, here is a chart that you can use to choose a TV with good color accuracy.

Color Gamut Chart

Now, after color gamut, you should look at the static contrast specification as it influences the picture quality substantially.

Understanding the static contrast ratio of a TV

A TV with high enough static contrast ratio will produce deep blacks while a TV with low contrast ratio (<1000:1) will produce images that might look muddy as shown in below image.

Example of a display with low contrast ratio

As you can see, this will impact your experience considerably.

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, I will prefer a FHD TV with high contrast ratio over a 4K TV with low contrast ratio.

We were not able to find a static contrast ratio specification for this TV. So once again we have to make an assumption based on the TV's other specs. Most IPS panels come with a static contrast ratio between 700:1 - 1500:1. Considering its a 4K TV, we can assume the ratio of Nokia 5500D would be 1200:1 or above.

As for brightness, it can go as bright as 250 nits. The backlight of this TV is powered by LED technology.

Gaming Performance

If you are planning to use your TV just for content consumption, you can safely ignore these specifications. But if you are also going to use the TV for playing games or use it as a PC monitor, make sure to take a TV with the lowest input lag and response time.

Sadly, there is no specification for input lag on this TV. But as this is not a cheap TV from Nokia, we can expect an input lag of less than 20ms.

What is Input lag ?

This lag is the amount of time at which device inputs changes the content of the TV. For casual Non-FPS games, input lag doesn't matter much.

For best of both worlds, get a TV that features an input lag and response time of < 20ms.

Ergonomics and Dimensions

Coming to ergonomics — a VESA mount with interface size of 100 x 100 mm is provided for wall-mounting. The TV comes with Swivel feature, but there is no support for Tilt or Pivot.

The width of this TV is 37.95 inches while its height is 24 inches. Speaking of thickness, it is 2.83 inches thick.

It weighs approximately 6.82 KGs, another 1.8 kgs if you include stand.

Hardware and Audio

The internals of Nokia 5500D is powered by a 1.2 Ghz 4-Core (ARM Cortex-A55) CPU and a Tri Core (ARM Mali-470 MP3) GPU. The total available RAM on this TV is 1.5 GB.

To power its UI, the TV runs Android 10 Operating System.

For display connectivity, Nokia has provided three HDMI 2.0 (ARC; CEC) ports on this TV.

To connect USB devices, you will have two USB 2.0 ports. Other connectivity ports include — 1x Satellite In (F-type female), 1x CI+ 1.4, 1x Antenna (RF) and 1x Ethernet RJ45.

Regarding wireless connections on this TV, the manufacturer has provided Wi-Fi (5Ghz + 2.5Ghz), Wifi-Direct and Bluetooth.

The Audio unit of this TV is powered by 2 x 10W built-in speakers. It also comes with a built-in subwoofer. So you may not have to invest on any external sound system.

Speaking of power consumption, this TV consumes 72W on average and 0.5W on standby.

Both 110V and 220V outlets are supported on this unit.
