Philips 32PF5520D review: Philips 32PF5520D/79 32-inch LCD television

Philips 32PF5520D is a decent performer with some notable pluses (such as its built-in digital tuner), but for a mid-range offering its price of AU3699 puts it perilously close to the high-end models of players like LG and Sony.

Philips 32PF5520D

The Bottom Line

Philips 32PF5520D is a decent performer with some notable pluses (such as its built-in digital tuner), but for a mid-range offering its price of AU3699 puts it perilously close to the high-end models of players like LG and Sony.

The Philips‘ 32PF5520D certainly isn’t breaking any new ground when it comes to design, sporting the simple yet functional black frame and silver trim many other flatscreen sets now seem to have. That’s not to say it doesn’t look good.- it does, with its neat design it will easily match any living room environment. Philips has also gone a step further down the minimalist track by not including any controls on the front of the unit, with only the company logo on the bottom to intrude on the clean design. The television‘s included silver stand is similarly minimal.

The 32PF5520D’s main controls can be found on the left side of the panel, including a power switch, volume and menu buttons. There’s also an AV input and digital audio out for ease of access. The bulk of the Philip’s connectors can be found at the back of the television, and are mounted facing down as opposed to facing out the back. This means that cables stick down vertically instead of horizontally.- obviously ideal if you plan to wall mount the set, but it’s initially tricky to deal with as your head needs to be below the set to see which connectors are which.

Philips has obviously heard’s constant pleas for new televisions to come pre-installed with high definition tuners, as the 32PF5520D is fitted with both an analog and digital tuner (as does its plasma equivalent, the 42PF7520D). The good news is tempered by some bad, however, as unlike the high definition LG range of flatscreen plasma and LCDs, the digital tuner in this Philips is only standard definition. Still, an SD tuner does get you into the digital domain, with its picture still a marked improvement over analog.

Specifications-wise, the Philips 32PF5520D has some decent if not outstanding features befitting its mid-range status. Panel resolution is a high 1366×768 pixels, which is good enough for 720p high definition should you choose to get a high def tuner. This Philips LCD has a brightness of 500 cd/m2 and a contrast ratio of 600:1, which is a little on the low side compared to what LG is claiming with its new 32-inch 32LX2D (600 cd/m2 brightness and 1200:1 contrast) and Sony’s mid-range Bravia KLV-S32A10 (480 cd/m2 brightness and 1000:1 contrast ratio). The 32PF5520D’s response time is rated at 18ms, which is once again a little on the unimpressive side compared to other similar models, such as the Sony Bravia which is rated at 8ms. Response time rates how fast an LCD screen can refresh the image it’s displaying, with quicker response times (the lower the number, the faster) resulting in smoother movement.

The 32PF5520D comes with an HDMI input, the all digital connector for both sound and vision. It’s an impressive inclusion, and is the standout offering in an otherwise basic set of connections. As well as HDMI, the set has one component, one PC-VGA and two S-Video/composite inputs. Another high definition connector like HDMI or component would have been welcome.

As for sound, this Philips television features 2x15W of power, as well as Virtual Dolby Surround audio technology and Dynamic Bass Enhancement. If you’re serious about your home theatre, you’ll obviously want to have a proper surround sound system in place. But the sound this Philips pumps out is more than adequate if it’s meant to be a second television in your home.

Philips has loaded the 32PF5520D with a host of picture enhancing add-ons including jagged line suppression, sharpness adjustment, digital noise reduction and its own Digital Crystal Clear technology. Sharpness seems to be the main benefactor from all this whiz-bangery, with the 32PF5520D producing an exceptionally detailed picture with crisp edges. We took the set through its paces using the AVI Video Essentials DVD as our reference, and when it came to sharpness the Philips set was outstanding, recreating arrow straight lines without any jagged edges.

Colours on the set appear natural, although the television‘s default settings could give the picture an oversaturated look at times. We played the first Papa Midnight scene from the recent film Constantine, which features plenty of deep blacks and reds, and found the Philips struggled somewhat to reproduce the picture. The reds in the scene had little gradient and could at times appear splotchy. And while the black levels of the 32PF5520D were acceptable, it still seemed a little bright for our liking. We tested the Philips side by side with a Hitachi plasma and found blacks much deeper on the plasma set. In the bug attack scene in Constantine, the Philips could only pick minimal detail on Keanu Reeves wet, black jacket.

That said, for normal television viewing (particularly through the in-built digital tuner) the Philips excelled, producing an impressive picture that was pleasing to the eye.

The 32-inch space is a hotly contested one in LCD televisions at the moment, with plenty of offerings from all of the major manufacturers. Philips 32PF5520D is a decent performer with some notable pluses (such as its built-in digital tuner), but for a mid-range offering its price of AU3699 puts it perilously close to the high-end models of players like LG and Sony. For only AU300 more, LG is offering higher specs and a built-in digital tuner with its 32LX2D, while the top of the line Sony Bravia KLV-V32A10 is similarly priced at AU3999.

The Best 32-Inch TV

We’ve added information on TCL’s new S2 and S3 HDTVs.

“Bigger is better” may be the TV industry’s current motto, but some people simply don’t need a big-screen TV. If you’re searching for a television to fit in a small living room, dorm room, or bedroom—or if you just don’t want to spend very much money on a casual-use TV—we recommend the TCL 32S334. None of the 32-inch TVs we tested deliver the higher-level performance found in our favorite premium and budget 4K TVs, but the 32S334 looks better than the competition, is easy to use, and has the best assortment of helpful features.

How we picked and tested

These TVs offer acceptable performance, but they aren’t as bright as our other TV picks and lack many advanced technologies of larger TVs.

We measured each TV’s brightness, contrast, and color accuracy using Calman software from Portrait Displays and light/color meters.

We looked for a TV that delivers a reliable Smart-TV experience, but you will get better, faster performance if you use an external media player.

We preferred TVs with helpful features like voice remotes, Bluetooth audio output, and wired Ethernet connections.

Buying Options

The TCL 32S334 is a great small, Smart TV that you can quickly and easily set up and use in most any space. It has good picture and sound quality, and the built-in Android TV Smart-TV platform supports all the major streaming video and music services—so you don’t need to attach any external source devices if you don’t want to (but there are two HDMI inputs if you do). We like Android TV’s customizable interface that shows recommended and recently viewed content, and the remote is simple without being too simplistic, with helpful buttons and a microphone for voice search. Bluetooth audio output is available to send the TV’s audio wirelessly to headphones or speakers, and you can choose a wired or wireless network connection for streaming. But the 720p resolution is not ideal for up-close uses, like desktop work or gaming, and really dark scenes can look too blue at times. TCL also sells a 40-inch version of this TV, the 40S334.

For close-up uses and Roku fans

The TCL 32S327’s higher 1080p resolution makes it a good choice for up-close uses, and it features the clean, simple Roku TV interface that many people like. But some features require the use of a mobile app.

If you plan to sit very close to your TV, the TCL 32S327 is the best 1080p 32-inch TV we tested. It’s also the best Roku TV we tested, so if you strongly prefer the integrated Roku TV interface over Android TV, this is a better choice than the 32S334. The 32S327 had the highest brightness of all the TVs we measured, and its image quality is almost as good as that of our top pick. However, the dark-room performance with movies isn’t as good, this TV lacks integrated voice search and Bluetooth (you have to use the Roku mobile app to get these features), and the viewing angle is limited. TCL recently introduced a new 1080p Roku TV, the 32S359, which we don’t like as much.

Why you should trust us

I have over a decade of experience reviewing TVs, projectors, and other video devices. I was formerly the video editor and primary TV tester for, and previously contributed TV coverage to Home Theater Magazine, Electronic House, and other publications. I am an Imaging Science Foundation level II certified video calibrator, and I have the full complement of objective testing gear to measure and evaluate the performance of these TVs.

Who this is for

Smaller TVs, with screen sizes of 32 inches or below, are great for apartment, condo, and dorm-room dwellers with smaller living rooms, as well as for bedrooms, workout rooms, and other secondary spaces. They’re also good for budget-conscious shoppers and people who don’t spend a lot of time watching TV but still want one around, since most of them are priced below 200.

You can also pair a 32-inch TV with a computer, but unless you need the built-in over-the-air TV tuner (which is technically what makes a TV a TV, as opposed to a monitor), you are generally better off going with a dedicated computer monitor. These TVs’ viewing angles are not always well suited for sitting very close, and most small TVs lack computer-friendly features like a variety of USB ports, a built-in camera, and a tiltable stand. Computers and TVs are simply designed for different uses, and as such prioritize different performance aspects. But if you’re looking for an affordable display to pull double-duty TV/computer use, these will work with HDMI-equipped computers and laptops.

For those who want exceptional picture quality in a smaller form, the vast majority of 32-inch TVs will leave you wanting, since they generally lack the higher-performance technologies that we look for in our guides to the Best LCD/LED TV and Best 4K TV on a Budget (we discuss some specifics in the next section). To get these technologies, you may have to move up to at least a 43-inch screen size.

All of the TVs we tested offered acceptable picture quality. Some were a bit better than others, but none were exceptional, and none were terrible. What really distinguished them was their user experience and the convenient features they offered.

How we picked the best 32-inch TV

In today’s TV market, manufacturers prioritize larger screen sizes, likely because that’s what people are buying. Lots of new TV lines aren’t available in screen sizes smaller than 55 or 50 inches, and many of the 32-inch TVs you’ll find for sale—from major brands like Samsung, Sony, and LG—are several years old. Manufacturers like TCL, Hisense, and Vizio are more consistent in releasing new options at smaller screen sizes, but those options are limited to the companies’ most budget-oriented lines.

Because the options are limited in this category, we didn’t set a formal criteria to eliminate any potential candidates, beyond trying to get the newest models available. As we researched what to call in and test, we noticed some predictable patterns in features and pricing that you might find helpful to know before you shop:

  • Resolution: The majority of 32-inch TVs have a 720p (1366×768) HD resolution, but we’re seeing more models that offer a 1080p (1920×1080) resolution for a slightly higher price. (As we write this, there is only one 32-inch TV we know of with a 4K resolution, from Samsung, and it costs more than twice as much as the TVs we tested.) If you’re sitting more than five feet away from your TV, we don’t think the lower 720p resolution is a major hindrance. In our tests, the loss of detail between 720p and 1080p was evident at this screen size, but not significant. However, for close-up viewing—such as for desktop, gaming, or kitchen use—the step up to 1080p provides a meaningful improvement, especially in text clarity.
  • Smart-TV platform: As with TVs of all screen sizes, it has become impossible to find a new 32-inch TV that lacks a built-in streaming platform. Companies like Samsung, LG, and Vizio utilize their own proprietary Smart-TV platforms, while brands like TCL, Hisense, and Toshiba rely on Roku TV, Android TV, or Fire TV. If you have a strong preference for (or against) a certain Smart-TV platform, that may factor heavily into your choice of 32-inch TVs. But manufacturers seldom use their best system processors and Wi-Fi tech in these small, cheap TVs, so the Smart-TV experience is usually slower and less robust than what you’ll get from a good external streaming media player.
  • Number of HDMI inputs: Many 32-inch TVs have just two HDMI inputs, but some offer three. Your choice of TVs may come down to how many external sources you need to attach. The built-in streaming can eliminate the need to attach an external media streamer, but if you have a cable box, gaming console, and disc player, you should look for a TV with three HDMI inputs. These inputs are usually HDMI 2.0, not HDMI 2.1, which means you don’t get all the latest advanced gaming features or higher-quality eARC audio output that you’ll find on more expensive TVs. (You can read more about HDMI 2.1 in this blog post.)
  • Other features that may influence your buying decision: Do you want Bluetooth audio output to wirelessly connect headphones or a Bluetooth speaker? Some 32-inch TVs lack this feature altogether, and some implement it more conveniently than others. Do you need a wired Ethernet port? Many of the TVs we tested only support Wi-Fi to stream media, but some add a LAN port, which can be helpful if your Wi-Fi network is unreliable. Do you want voice search built into the remote? How about AirPlay or Chromecast support? Some of these features are tied to the Smart-TV platform you choose, which is again why that feature may heavily influence your buying decision.

There are also some predictable omissions in TVs at this size. As we mentioned above, most of these TVs are part of manufacturers’ budget lines, which means they don’t include the advanced performance technologies that produce the best-looking picture. Most of them lack support for 4K high dynamic range (HDR) video—and even if they do support it, they lack the brightness, black level (no local dimming), and contrast to do anything meaningful with it. They can’t get anywhere near as bright as the top picks in our other TV guides, and they seldom use the highest-quality screens that are designed to reject ambient light and improve image contrast in bright rooms. Virtually no one offers a true 120 Hz panel in this screen size, to help improve motion detail and cut down on the judder (or jerky movement) in films. But then again, motion blur may be harder for most people to see with this small screen size.

How we tested

Our TV reviews consist of a combination of objective and subjective testing. For our objective tests, we used Calman measurement software from Portrait Displays, in conjunction with a Portrait Displays C6 HDR2000 colorimeter and Murideo Six-G test-pattern generator, to measure each TV’s brightness, contrast, and color accuracy (based on the Rec. 709 HDTV color standard). We took quick measurements of all the available picture modes, then did more precise measurements of the most accurate choices.

Our subjective testing consisted of direct side-by-side comparisons of the different TVs, to see how they looked with real-world content in both bright and dark rooms, when viewed up close and at a distance of about five feet. We fed content from an Apple TV media streamer, an Xbox One X gaming console, and an Oppo Blu-ray player through an HDFury Integral HDMI splitter to two TVs at a time.

Here is the performance criteria we set for determining the best 32-inch TV:

Picture quality: A TV’s contrast ratio is the best indication of its overall performance, and that number is determined by how bright the brightest white is versus how dark the deepest black is. We gave preference to TVs that combine a good contrast ratio with the best color accuracy and the highest maximum brightness. None of these TVs can match the maximum brightness of the higher-end TVs we test for our other guides; in our tests, they were less than half as bright as even our favorite budget 4K TVs, which means none of them are ideal for use in a really bright room with lots of light reflections. We also considered how clean, natural, and detailed the picture looked, and we used a combination of TV shows, sports, movies, and games to get a good sense of all-around performance.

Ultimately, most of the TVs we tested offered acceptable picture quality. Some were a bit better than others, but none were exceptional, and none were terrible. What really distinguished them was their user experience and the convenient features they offered.

User experience: The TV’s user-friendliness was as important to us as the picture quality, and the built-in Smart-TV platform greatly influenced our decision here. These days all of the Smart-TV platforms have the major apps and many of the minor ones, so it really comes down to how intuitive it is to find the content you want and control the TV. This includes how fast the TV gets you to your desired shows, the remote’s design and implementation of voice search, how easy it is to change settings or adjust inputs, how the system works with a TV antenna, and whether or not you can connect to headphones via Bluetooth.

Network stability: If you’re relying on streaming apps for your content, then you’re probably also relying on Wi-Fi to deliver it. We tested each TV’s Wi-Fi by adding it to the same network and moving to different locations around our home. This included streaming video over Wi-Fi in the bedroom located the farthest from our Wi-Fi router.

Sound quality: In talking with people who own or plan to buy smaller TVs, we found that most of them did not intend to connect an external sound system, like a soundbar or surround-sound system, to a TV this small. That means the speaker quality matters, so we evaluated how loud the speakers could play, how evenly balanced the sound was, and especially how clear voices and dialogue sounded.

Our pick: TCL 32S334 Android TV

The best 32-inch TV

The 32S334 offers better picture quality than the competition and has helpful built-in features like voice search and Bluetooth audio output.

Buying Options

At the time of publishing, the price was 150.

The TCL 32S334 is our favorite 32-inch TV because it has everything you need built in. It combines good video performance, respectable sound quality, and a comprehensive set of integrated features. This was one of the brightest TVs we measured and had the best black level and color accuracy, so the picture looked good whether we watched TV shows, sports, or movies—though the lower 720p resolution isn’t ideal for desktop or other close-up uses. The Android TV Smart-TV platform supports all the major streaming services, with a customizable interface that makes it faster and easier to find the shows you want to watch. And we appreciate that features like Bluetooth audio output and voice search are directly integrated into the TV, instead of requiring that you pair the TV with a mobile device to enjoy these perks. TCL also sells a 40-inch version of this TV, the 40S334.

Most of the TVs we tested did a decent job with brighter TV and sports content, but the 32S334 distinguished itself from the pack with movies. It had one of the highest measured contrast ratios in our testing, plus surprisingly good color accuracy and a solid black level—so films and darker, more atmospheric TV shows looked richer and more natural in a dark room. It was also one of the brightest TVs we measured (with a maximum light output of 90 fL, or 308 nits), so it added a little more pop to bright content during the day. Whereas some TVs we tested had only one picture mode that we found watchable, the 32S334 had a couple good options: The Movie picture mode was the most accurate and best for nighttime viewing, but the brighter Game mode also had a nicely neutral color temperature (or color of white, meaning the overall image wasn’t too blue or red). Colors weren’t quite as accurate, but they did look more vibrant, which many people may prefer for daytime viewing. But Game mode is meant for external sources (like game consoles) connected via HDMI and won’t work with the TV’s built-in streaming services.

The 32S334 has a lower 720p resolution. When comparing it directly to the 1080p TVs in our tests, we could tell from a viewing distance of five feet that the picture looked a little bit softer, but it was not a significant difference. The most meaningful difference came when looking at text in menu systems and news/sports crawls. All the 720p TVs produced very jagged text compared with the 1080p TVs, so if you’re looking for a TV for close-up uses—like a desktop or a kitchen, where you might be reading recipes—you should look at our runner-up pick instead.

The Android TV interface is similar to our favorite media-streaming interface, Google TV: The home page is highly customizable and makes it easy to jump directly to previously viewed shows, movies, or channels. It doesn’t have the more robust live-TV integration of Google TV, and it’s not as simple as the Roku interface that just shows you a grid of all your desired apps, but we find it to be an intuitive way to find stuff to watch. All the major apps—including Netflix, Disney, Prime Video, YouTube and YouTube TV, Hulu, Apple TV, and HBO Max—are supported, and Chromecast is also built in, to receive streamed content from a mobile device.

The remote is Bluetooth based, so you don’t need direct line-of-sight with the TV, and it has almost all the buttons we wanted, including a Settings button to pull up the picture/sound/live-TV adjustments and source button to quickly switch inputs. It lacks a number pad and a mute button, but we especially like that it has voice search built in. Some competitors lacked voice search altogether, and others—like Roku TVs—required that you use a mobile app for voice search, which works fine but is less user-friendly than having it built directly into the remote.

Likewise, this Android TV has integrated Bluetooth audio output, to wirelessly connect headphones for private listening. Roku makes you do this through the app, too.

The TV’s built-in speakers can play very loudly, and they sounded fuller and more balanced than some of the others we tested. Dialogue had a broader and less “beaming” quality to it, and there are seven sound modes to choose from, plus a volume-leveling function to cut down on the extreme jumps in sound level.

While the 32S334 is a little slow to fully power up when you first plug it in, it powers up very quickly after that, and it will automatically go back to the last input you used. So, if you wish to bypass the Android TV interface completely and power up to some other source device connected via HDMI—say, a cable box or different media streamer—it’s easy to do so.

The connection panel includes two HDMI 2.0 inputs, which should be enough for most people, especially if you intend to use the Android TV streaming. It has a composite AV input to attach older analog sources and an RF antenna input. We attached a Mohu mini antenna and pulled in all the usual channels we expect in our area, and we found the user experience to be intuitive. Even though the remote lacks a number pad to directly punch in channel numbers, the keyboard button launches an onscreen number pad, and it’s easy to pull up and customize the channel grid.

The connection panel also includes a powered USB port, a headphone jack, and an optical digital audio output. Unlike several of the TVs we tested, this one also has an Ethernet port if you prefer a wired network connection.

How the 32S334 has held up

We’ve used the 32S334 on an almost daily basis since we first recommended it in 2021, and we’ve been mostly satisfied with the performance and user experience. We have received some feedback from readers about the mediocre speed and stability of the built-in Wi-Fi and Android TV platform, and we agree that it could be better—but it’s on par with the competition in this category. Unfortunately, TV manufacturers generally don’t use their best system processors and Wi-Fi tech in these small, cheap TVs. We often connected a Google Chromecast via HDMI to get faster and more reliable streaming, and Google now sells a cheaper 30 Chromecast HD model that would be a logical fit with this HDTV.

Flaws but not dealbreakers

The one notable picture-quality issue with the 32S334 is that its color temperature (or color of white) veers blue in really dark scenes. This was a common problem with many of the 32-inch TVs we tested; in dark scenes from Stranger Things and Gravity, the deepest blacks took on a bluish or purplish hue.

None of the TVs we tested for this guide excel in the brightness department. While the 32S334 was one of the brighter models, its maximum measured brightness is still almost 50% less than what you’ll get if you move up to a larger budget 4K TV. And its LCD panel doesn’t incorporate any light-rejecting technology to help improve image contrast in a bright room. So we don’t think you’ll be satisfied with this TV (or any of the others we tested) in a really bright room with lots of direct sunlight.

As we mentioned above, the 720p resolution is not ideal for text, so we recommend the 1080p 32S327 below for close-up and text-heavy uses.
