Android OS looks like a bonus.

Could load Kodi and make it a really smart TV.

Or maybe not looking at the listing.

ITV, All 4 and 50D catch-up apps are not available.

I'm guessing then that this is not the full Play Store experience.

User guide here.

​exactly what I thought. most of the tvs posted dont have android or half the features so I thought the price seemed really good considering

Its not that its not the full experience, but rather that BBC, ITV, 4 and Five don't make their apps work on Android TV. If you put the standard apps from the Play Store on there by force, they're unusable as they were designed for touch, not a remote control, and so its almost impossible to do anything. Wouldn't take them long to fix this, but they have other priorities.

On the Shield TV (standalone Android TV device) they have BBC iPlayer, but this was made by the makers of the device, so its only on their device. On Sony TVs the apps exist, but they're part of the YouView platform, and without that the apps won't work. Sky, BT, Virgin Media etc have just ignored everything and stuck with Chromecast.

TV networks here are ignoring Android TV and going with Fire TV or Chromecast. American networks have been much better for this, sadly.

I love my Shield TV, works great for what I wanted. I'd be fine with the built in version for Kodi as well (since there's iPlayer/ITV etc plugins for it), but the built in versions won't be updated very often (this is running Android 5.1, whereas standalone devices have been running 6.0 for months now and will be getting 7.0 soon), which means when apps start cutting off older versions of Android for support the TV will start to lose functionality.

Yes, reading through the comprehensive user guide it does look as though you can use the full Play Store.

Bluetooth as well, WiFi ac, 4:4:4 chroma

Anybody that reads the user guide will see that this TV is packed to the rafters with features, so it's a scorcher from me OP.

There will still be support for apps on Lollipop for a good while yet though because there will be many Android devices that either won't get Nougat or will take eons to get there.

If there is one possible downside it is the HDCP only being supported on one port.

How do Philips comparer with Samsung TV's? I haven't seen a Philips 4k 'in the flesh', but I've always thought their standard res looked a little dull against the same screen sized Samsungs. . .

​thats because they dont buy their tv's, they get them through pay weekly stores. Whats wrong with Phillips anyway? Better than most of the brands offering tvs of this size like digihome, blaupunkt, polaroid etc to name a few. im sorry we dont all have a mansion and rich heritage like you but some of us work our asses off for buttons to get by so have to make do with what we can afford.

I was at a TV & Video trade show many years ago (When Philips launched the Video 2000 video recorder..........you all know the one...recorded for 8 hours on one tape,but you had to take it out and turn it over!........Didn't come with a remote control.....the Philips guy said not everybody wanted one,but sold the remote for £50 more.................such forward thinking from Philips, all downhill from then.

I've owned this TV since last November and it's brilliant. Very good picture when you tweak the settings and you also get regular firmware and Android updates. Kodi works perfectly too. Comes with a 2 yr warranty from Argos. I had a Panasonic Viera Plasma previously and I've been very impressed with the Philips. Sound not the best but coupled up with an LG soundbar and all is good, lipsync has also become very accurate following the last few updates.

Has Android been updated to Marshmallow yet?

Pretty sure Philips TV's are assembled in Europe, they might use boards manufactured in China but most of the other big brands like LG, Samsung and Panasonic (higher end) also do this. Pretty much the norm now.

What's it like at playback of SD video off USB (does it process the image so it looks good)?

So you spend £20 on an external box and fix the problem? There's a Beelink on here today for 16 quid!

700hz.....arbitrary number
wonder what the native refresh rate is? probably 60hz

Superb spec for the price. Hate built in android sets as you know its built in obsolescence but can't argue for the money.

Kodi is excellent unless you have shares in sky or Netflix.
#25
so I just reserved one. any views on how this compares to the 40" hisense at the same price? I already have a decent android box so the built in isn't so Important to me.

This might be ok as a 4k monitor. Especially with 4:4:4 chroma. Tempted.

​Because Kodi is ubiquitous and synonymous as n00b software, it's for people that don't know what else exists or can't figure out how to use the alternatives. My opinion of Kodi is that it's trashware. Urghh it's just horrible software, excruciatingly bad.

Kodi is superb as it is without all the piracy that it brings. Been using it since the first XBMC release on the original Xbox.
That being said, it's awful on my SONY Android TV. Nothing is in sync, every file format is out by a slightly different amount as well.

The Windows and Linux versions work perfectly.

Kodi works as a media centre OK. It's all the piracy and addons that make it n00b software, they work so poorly it's a wonder anyone uses it.

​What sort of alternatives?

I agree largely about KODI. Its ok for a few things but absolutely useless for most things!

Handy to have but don't rely on it if you want your mates over for a sporting event!

That's not Kodi though.

That is some of the addons.

Many of the legal ones work very well.

I have this TV. Android is a plus but a little disappointed with the picture. Anyone know the settings to make it look more brighter and less dull. When watching the demo video it looks great but I've tried going through the settings but can't seem to get the picture to the same quality :/
#36
I had the 55" of this TV.
Took it back to Argos. Android was bug ridden, onboard freeview was shocking on SD channel. Truly abysmal picture quality, kept turning off, resetting, going blank, or changing channels.
After spending a few days talking to Phillips help desk they admitted it was a known fault and I could wait for a 'potential fix' or return to my retailer. So back to Argos it went
If you could drive it solely on HD or UHD sources, the picture is superb. If you watch much of the currently broadcast SD content i'd definitely look elsewhere.
#37
They work on my Sony android TV. Should work on this too
#38
I use Kodi on my HTPC as a front end for all my films and tv shows that are ripped to my server. It's a superb piece of software that can be tweaked in numerous ways. I've only used a few addon - movie trailers, youtube etc and they work perfectly well, but that's not my main focus. It's certainly not what I would class as noob software.

Hi, it's still on Android 5.1 but it has run really well following the last update and the picture seems even clearer. I have read that Marshmallow is in the pipeline too. It also plays MKV etc off a USB 3.0 stick in the USB 3.0 port perfectly with the inbuilt media player. Thanks.
