The Best Small TV For Bedroom of 2022

There is still some demand for the best small TVs for bedroom of 2022 although it has fallen out of popularity in recent years. However, many popular manufacturers do not release models of this size and they become difficult to find. Usually, the picture quality or performance of these TVs is below average, as they tend to be low-cost models, so you can benefit significantly overall by increasing the size of the bigger TV.

If there's a small model you'd like us to buy and test, check out our recommendation engine.


Top Picks

  1. Samsung QN32Q60AAFXZA

The best small smart TV for a bedroom with 4k resolution is the Samsung QN32Q60AAFXZA. This is a good 4k TV, and one of the few models on the market that performs the same across all sizes, including the 32-inch model. Overall, it's a good TV, but a bit bland in terms of additions; even the smart interface is slightly simplified compared to Samsung's more advanced models. The smart platform is still great, with an easy-to-use layout and plenty of extra apps.

  1. Vizio D32f-J04

The best small smart TV for a bedroom with 1080p resolution is the Vizio D32f-J04 (Full HD - 32 inches). It has decent overall performance and those who are looking for a basic TV to watch their favorite shows or news will be pleased with it.

  1.  TCL 32S327

If you want something with better smart features, check out the TCL 32S327. Its contrast is not as good as the Vizio D3 Series 2021, so its blacks are not as deep. However, the Roku TV is packed with an easy-to-use interface with plenty of apps you can download through the app store, but the navigation menu doesn't feel the smoothest. It also has good reflection handling.

This TV doesn't support HDR and has limited extras, but that's to be expected from a basic small TV for a bedroom.

  1. Samsung UN32N5300

The Samsung UN32N5300 is the best small TV for bedrooms we've tested. This is an old TV, but you can still find it because Samsung hasn't released many 1080p TVs in the past few years.

  1. Toshiba 32LF221U19

If you're looking for the best small TV with Alexa, this Toshiba makes it a direct competitor to TCL's Roku system. All in all, we prefer the Roku to the Fire TV, thanks to its premium menu and search features, but this Toshiba has a great addition the TCL lacks: built-in Alexa, available by speaking into the remote. Note that the Echo Dot in the picture above is not included.

Buying Guide

Price: Prices vary between different brands, but even the best small TVs are cheaper than the most basic 4K TVs. Prices can also vary related to the feature you're looking for.

Ports and inputs: Devices like Nintendo Switch, PS4, and DVD/Blu-ray players will need a Nintendo Wii, HDMI input; or other older game consoles will need a component or even composite video input; Personal computers, if they don't use HDMI, will likely use DVI or VGA inputs; and Sky or set-top box will need extra HDMI.

The right kind of panel: There are basically two types of LCD panel technologies for small TVs for bedrooms, they are IPS and VA. While VA panels support much better contrast, IPS panels offer slightly wider viewing angles.

The best small TVs for bedrooms take advantage of the smaller scale. That said, a small smart TV makes a great secondary display for bedrooms or even kid's rooms where a larger screen size just doesn't make sense.
