It can apparently upscale games to 4K.
I've seen many people comment that it indeed looks better than 1080p but one or two games there is some sort of blur.

Only the cinematic parts are upscaled to 4K not the actual gameplay

Everything's upscaled. If it wasn't it would just fill a quarter of the screen in the middle with black borders all round. The TV will do it if the console won't.

That Philips model uses Android TV as well though, and he said he wanted to avoid that for his next machine.

@ImagineS: The cheapest TV for a full HDR implementation, and the only one available at 43", is generally considered to be the Samsung KU7500 at £800.

Anything less than that and you're looking at little or no local dimming, leaving your High Dynamic Range not as dynamic as it could be. If you're going to splash the cash on a project scorpio it's worth considering.

Or you could buy a SmartTV box for your current TV so you don't need to deal with Android TV apps and wait a couple of years for prices on HDR TVs to drop.

Samsung's Tizen SmartTV platform is missing All4 and Demand5 at the moment (I'm not sure about UKTV Play).

Nothing wrong with Sony's current offerings with Android TV long as you are running the latest firmware. Issues where all with prior to April 2016 Firmware and never presume what you buy will come already with the latest firmware package.

​I have the 55 version and it works wonderfully with my one s, many will go on about how it's an 8 bit panel and you won't get full effect (and they're right) but this TV is still very impressive.

I even looked it up at John Lewis, on the display stands, I fiddled with the settings a bit and got it looking better than the Sony next to it (which was double the price!) sales assistant wasn't very happy with me, lol

​don't expect PlayStation now to work either unless you want controller plugged via USB, it's the 6400 and up that has Bluetooth for controller.

Got one of these too! Has a dedicated pc/game picture mode, but it does need a few settings tweaked mind. Even better with the recent firmware update. Cracking TV for the price.

The game play is not in 4K!!! Other wise it would be worth more than £230 PS4 pro is £390 and the upscales games but that's not even to 4K. The only console that will be trying to play games at 4K is the Xbox Scorpio and that's rumoured to be £650. The up side to a Xbox one s is the 4K blu ray drive in it but the games DO NOT PLAY IN 4K and for the people who are saying it does need to do some research go on to Microsoft website and read the description lol

4K upscaling

When you set your console resolution to 4K UHD, everything on the console—Home, games, and apps—will display at 4K. 4K content is displayed in its native 4K resolution, and other content (like 1080p content) is upscaled to 4K

Upscaling to 4K does not mean the content will become native 4K quality. Upscaling simply means that the resolution is scaled to a higher resolution. Here's an article about PS4 Pro about delivering 4K which says:
"The consumer 4K standard (technically it’s 3840×2160) refers to the number of pixels being drawn on-screen. It’s not an intrinsic image quality metric and it doesn’t say anything about the level of detail in a given title."

You're mistaking upscaling to be similar to increasing native resolutions on a PC game, which it's not. Take AC: Black Flag for example. It will look better on PS4 than PS3 because PS4 is native 1080p whereas PS3 is native 720p upscaled to 1080p. Saying that the Xbox One S upscales to 4K does not mean anything about graphics quality increasing to native 4K. If the console wasn't upscaling, then the TV would do it so that the picture displayed would fill the whole screen, otherwise you'd only be using a fraction of the screen if connecting anything to a 4K TV that wasn't native 4K.
