Or a cheap £30 Android box. With Android box you'll hardly ever want to use any of TVs smart features.
Most people still use fire stick , android box , playstation , ect ect where all apps can be used . So it's no big deal . I have the slightly older 55 inch 7 series with the P5 chip and have to say it's a unreal tv , beats my dads 55 in Sony that Is the same year and cost £200 more . The Ambilight is great for movies and some sports .
Am I right in thinking Philips don’t make TV's anymore as they sold off the part of the business a few years ago ??

No. They make their own stuff. Some really excellent TVs. In the upper range, they do get their OLED panels from LG but then so does everybody else.

or go for a shield. no chance of missing smart TV features after that. I have an LG with fairly good smart TV functions but really never use any of them.
It isn't Oled tv ,is this NoneCell or Qled if not it is not midrange tv it is standard 4k tv,apart from ambilight nothing is special on this tv

But shield costs £150....
Yes better option if you can afford that price tag.

I use my TV as just a screen... Android box is where I run my apps... Plus I can change the new box for £30 when I want and as many times I want.

I got mine for a lot less than that but agree it isn't the cheapest option. Some do feel it is worth it for the speed, long term support and its gaming ability. Either way the point is there are a multitude of options if the TV's apps are below par.

Have both Nvidia shield and firestick 4k stick. For streaming there is no real difference.
I think the app layout is simpler on the firestick.
Some of the catch up apps like 4OD are missing on the shield.
Unless gaming is your thing I. would recommend the firestick.
It's leagues ahead of its non 4k version.

The older 7303 was highly regarded as a great midrange TV by most TV gurus.
This has just been released & was released on display next to the 7303.
Picture quality was better than the 7303.
You cant buy a 65 inch OLED TV for £900.

actually they sold off their European tv business to TP Vision (owned by TPV who also manufacture the popular AOC monitors) in 2012. Their TVs appear to be very good nonetheless

Review here.https://www.whathifi.com/reviews/philips-the-one-7304


That isn't a proper review. I looked at the 55" version when it was £730ish

7304 - 60hz panel, no FALD, poor brightness so wouldn't do HDR justice. The LG sk9500 was the same price and a much much better TV, just no ambilight which is awesome, and no HDR10+ which no one cares about anyway
adamderak21/08/2019 00:34

I wouldn't call that a review. Zero info on peak brightness etc.

I also wouldn't trust what hifi to review anything at all. Their integrity is straight out of the window once you realise they review speaker cables and HDMI cables.

Ha, then i want 5 sided. I have a 3 sided version which is fine for putting it on a TV stand, but wall mounting would be better 4 sided/5 sided.

Ha well i don't have a little one to worry about, i would just prefer an all in one solution though. I might just wait for ambilux before i upgrade again but i want something bigger after moving to a bigger house.
I am having a tough time with Philips technical support at the moment. I raised a ticket with them 10 days ago for a loud buzzing noise coming from my 1 month old set (65PUS7303/12), and they asked me to send a video of the issue. Since then I've have had no response. I've rang them 3 times and each time get a disinterested person tell me that I will receive an email notification when they've investigated.

Am I the only one who finds this to be expensive for a 60hz panel that only has around 300 nits and is 8bit + frc.
Anyone know if JL or RS will price match for the benefit of the extended warranty?

No. it's got DOLBY(TM) and ATMOS (TM) so that's another whack on top. It's also got AMBILIGHT(TM) so that's another wadge of cash again.

You can get 65" TV's for 5-600 quid.


Ambilight is good though. but they were selling 65" ambilights for a few hundred less a while ago, albeit a 6000 series rather than a 7000 series.

In saying that though, a grand is a lot when it's not *that* amazing of a TV. The old Ambilight OLED 55" was around this price recently you'd probably be better going for that.

Yes it may have Dolby vision but it's not bright enough to get any benefit from it

Actually it isn't an option, I have 1 65" Ambilight and have a Philips strip under the TV stand. The Hue Setup on the TV won't let you select anything as under the TV. I can only have near tv bottom left or right which sort of spoils it. Pretty naff considering how much the Hue strips cost.
CoeK21/08/2019 10:36

If you can wait a couple of months and obviously have the money, the range topping 65oled984, has 4 sided ambilight.
Lots of reasons. One, I like a single remote without having to change source all the time and waiting for something else to boot up (I have a regular Firestick and a 4K stick and both take 20+ seconds to boot).

Two, I don’t have to explain to my wife that iPlayer is on a separate source and she needs a separate remote but if she wants to watch a non bbc box set she needs to go back to HDMI1 to find it on the Sky box. It’s all just hassle.

My TV remote can be used for the firestick. The firestick is always on. The older non 4k was a bit slow but the 4k one is lightning fast. I can switch from all4 to BBC iPlayer in seconds.
Are you sure you don't have a faulty firestick?
