To conclude on the Philips 32PHS4032/12

The overall feeling about the product is satisfactory, it is not the best on the market, but it still allows to have an efficient television set.
Negative point on this 32PHS4032/12 is the absence of smart tv. It’s surprising in this day and age. But since we’re in a low-end product, why not.
The HD resolution has been chosen on this TV. A sufficient choice and well adapted to everyday use. But this standard will certainly be outdated in a few years’ time. By then Ultra 8k prices will have dropped.

Finally, we will note all the positive points that are to be added to the credit of this television set. Here are 3 that I find interesting:
the sound power, the display frequency, the depth of the colours.
