In the late 1980s and for the most of the 1990s, Onida was a well-known brand. Nevertheless, ever since televisions from manufacturers like Samsung and LG started to appear, the local brand has been on the back foot. Now that Onida and Amazon have joined to bring the 32-inch Onida Fire TV Edition TV to the Indian market, the rules of the game have changed. The Indian company, which is attempting to make a comeback in the already crowded TV industry, is releasing the first of its kind. This is our review of the new 32-inch Onida Fire TV Edition smart TV after getting our hands on it.
Onida Fire TV Edition 32-inch TV Design and Display
The 32-inch Onida Fire TV Edition TV initially appears to be no different from other flatscreens on the market. The 32-inch flat LED tube is mounted in black plastic bezels. The Onida logo is located at the bottom of the front as well. The wall mount and table feet are both inside the packaging. It is simple to put up, and with the included screws and an intuitive user manual, you can do it quickly. The TV weighs 4.5 kg, which is not at all too much to move around.
The 32-inch Onida Fire TV Edition TV includes two down-firing speakers with a 16W RMS output per. Also composed of plastic, the back has a lot going on it. The one-time joystick button on the right bottom can be used to adjust volume and change stations. There are two port locations towards the back. One is on the side and has a 3.5mm headphone jack, 1 USB connector, and 3 HDMI ports. A port panel with Ethernet, an antenna, a composite port, and a power port is located at the bottom. Since the TV is portable and easy to move, both are readily available.
The simple remote that comes with the 32-inch OnidaFire TVEdition offers quick buttons for services like Amazon Prime and Netflix in addition to all the necessary buttons. As the TV is a smart one, it also has a microphone on it. One need only speak to Alexa and press a button to get their most recent OTT programming. The remote is powered by 2 triple A batteries, which are also included in the box.
Let’s get one thing straight: the 32-inch Onida Fire TV Edition TV is only HD, not Full HD, and it can only display images with a resolution of 720P. Which kind of is a deal-breaker for many, but we want to emphasise that the vibrant colours, razor-sharp detail, and quick FireTV OS make up for it. In relation to that, the Fire TV OS setup takes roughly 10 minutes, after which you are ready to start watching all your favourite programmes.
The boot time is a little longer than average, but given that the TV only has 1GB of internal RAM, 20–25 seconds for it to start up is not too bad. The FireTV OS system launches the TV right away, and you immediately have access to all the available apps, including Amazon Prime, Netflix, Zee5, Alt Balaji, Hotstar, and more. There is also YouTube, and if more are needed, one can download them. There is 4GB of internal storage, which can accommodate some more programmes. You would need to connect them via the USB drive in order to watch videos and view pictures. From the USB disc, all common formats, including JPG, MP4, and MP3, are supported.
We watched a lot of YouTube videos and Netflix shows on the TV and were generally satisfied with the service. The sound drivers work well because this TV is designed for small to medium-sized rooms. If your space is longer than 20 feet and a half, you might wish to get more speakers. The TV’s seamless connection with Alexa is another another fantastic feature. It correctly displayed the findings nine out of ten times and recognised our accent ten out of ten times. The Onida Fire TV Edition 32-inch TV includes all of the Alexa skills, and users may utilise them just like they would on any other Alexa device.
With a price of Rs 13,999, Onida is now a player in the market. If the 32-inch Onida Fire TV Edition TV had Full HD rather than merely HD, we would have liked it. Deep blacks and nice, sharp colours do make up for it, though. The TV is being constructed close to Mumbai, and Onida guarantees excellent after-sales service. You can navigate the Fire TV OS with ease, making you feel at home. The 32-inch Onida Fire TV Edition TV is a great alternative if you need a smart TV on a tight budget and don’t mind its basic design.
