KServico Tips: What makes Smart TVs and Android TVs different.
When you walk into a retail appliance store and see a wide array of the latest models of flatscreen TVs, you will notice something immediately.
Signs and stickers posted on the front panels of the various TV brands will say that one particular model is a Smart TV, while others say it’s an Android TV.
While the two TV categories are similar, they are not created to be equal.
So let KServico share some interesting facts about these two types of TVs.
Connectivity Makes A TV Smart.
A Smart TV is a TV that can connect to the internet, just like a computer, and allows you to enjoy streaming content using a user-friendly operating system.
Popular apps like Netflix, Youtube, Facebook, and others apps are already pre-installed, but Smart TVs are not upgradeable.
This makes Smart TVs simple and easy to use even for a non-techie. All you need to do is set it up where you want it and you are good to go.
These Are The ‘Droids You Are Looking For.
Android TVs, on the other hand, are also Smart TVs and offer all the same features, connectivity, and apps. What sets it apart from Smart TVs is this fact – Android TVs are upgradeable.
Using an Android TV, you can connect to Google Play Store just like Android phones and download and install the apps you want.
Cool, right? Wait, there’s more.
Android TVs also have remotes with built-in microphones that connect to Google Assistant. You can change the channel or platform, search for streaming content, manipulate the volume, and control all TV functions, hands-free.
Because of these features, you might think immediately that Android TVs are better, right?
It’s Not That Simple.
While offering a vast app library, Android TVs have limited storage space, so you can’t install everything. It also requires constant firmware and app updates – errors can be a possibility if you install a bad app.
And if you are not familiar with Android OS, you might need to learn how to operate it properly before you can fully enjoy the experience.
Which Is The Better Choice
It boils down to you as the end-user and how you want to enjoy your TV entertainment.
Some would prefer the Smart TV because it is plug-and-play. No learning curve is needed, power on and enjoy Netflix and chill on demand.
Others would prefer the slight complexity of the Android TV, with the ability to freely customize some apps and regularly update the software to ensure their unit is not obsolete. This sort of freedom can appeal more to techie-minded individuals.
