Good deal but this is one of those TVs that resembles the days of 2015 when one of the budget Panasonic TVs was NOT a Panasonic TV, this seems to be a similar situation, badged a Philips but not really a Philips, you can even tell by the design it does not resemble Philips design of TV Stand, also take a closer look at the Philips logo, its almost a badge-style logo, totally different from any Philips TVs of the logo which is usually a led built into the set itself, apparently these are made by Innolux which is why it is most likely absent of Ambilight, even the budget end of Philips TVs have at 2-sided Amblight, you will also notice the internet is extremely sparse of reviews for this TV. but HEAT for the price, As for the spec its almost identical to my 2016 Philips Mid-Range TV with 3-sided Ambilight with Android, in fact comparing the TV like for like, my 2016 set beats this set in relation to 4K HDR specs not by much, but its does beat it... so if it was me great size, great price, but I think I would invest in something a little better or buy an older set with Ambilight, you have to go back many years when Philips actually did not make any TV (excluding 32" and smaller" without Ambilight) this really does seem like your buying a piggy in a poke here, and should anything go wrong with it, you may find (as was the situation with the budget Panasonic TV made by an outsourced company) customer services say "sorry this was not actually made by us, even though it as got our badge on it and therefore cannot fix it" still even though its on the Philips website and thankfully as got some firmware updates, it may be worth it on a budget, its upto you.

Mine has Ambilight and runs Saphi like the above - it is fine. If you must have android get a fire stick or similar but frankly Saphi gives me everything I need.

ah didn't know some of the ambilights were saphi instead of android tv
Voted hot
Very cheap for the price. Very decent budget 4K screen!
I think it's the 7000 series which are Android
Looks like a decent tv for the price. Any opinions on picture quality?
Not bad at all that is a good deal!
Probably would have bought it, if it had ambilight.
Thank you!!

For some I can't add heat, so heat anyway.
yeah big poor screen for money, 60hz 10bit(8bit+FRC) only 800 PPI, perhaps hot

The Panel itself may be good, but its the electronics behind it that make the difference.
I have no idea with these, but still... bargain price for the size and supposed 'features'

Well I'm 25 so I'd say that is quite young.
Philips would appear to have licensed out tv production some time ago. Their tv's are actually really coming on now. I bought the 6703 with ambilight for my partner who has been delighted with it. We paid £369 from Richer Sounds for the 50 inch version. I guess the question is whether for a similar price the extra screen size is worth losing ambilight, which of course will be a personal choice. My partner tends to use ambilight for movies etc and not daily viewing. Either way this is a super deal in my opinion. Heat added.

There we go then. Philips have been out of the TV game (in a serous way) for most of your formative years.
So no wonder

This is made by TP Vision, the same as all Philips TVs are. Obviously it's one of their lowest-end models, which don't typically have Ambilight, but they don't outsource to the real dregs of the industry. Innolux make LCD panels, not TVs. I don't know what panel is actually in this TV, but it certainly could be from Innolux. However, that's also nothing unusual. There aren't many panel manufacturers out there, and you'll find that most TVs and monitors with similar specs at a given price point are using the same, or one of a handful of panels, no matter who actually made the display. Of course, it's possible to ruin a great panel with terrible picture processing, or somewhat elevate a mediocre one through great picture processing, but that's an area where Philips are pretty strong.

Philips do license out their name for use on these TVs, but they also completely sold their TV division wholesale to TP Vision. It was initially a partnership established in 2012, but Philips sold up entirely in 2014 to concentrate on other fields. TP Vision bought everything though, including the workforce and facilities that Philips already had in place, so essentially nothing really changed. They've also done great work in the wake of the sale, producing some really excellent TVs that match anything else on the market. It's a rather different situation to other well-known brands that have been picked up on the cheap and used to rebadge generic TVs from the likes of Vestel and UMC.

Sorry I am just not convinced, the Panel is made by Innolux, who do make panels yes, but this just does not feel or look like a fully pledged Philips TV, you can tell by looking at it, the design, the logo, the bezel, and it does appear than no one is buying this TV in any country, over in Europe its the around same price, not one review, but if you look deeper on the internet you will find quite a few online stores both in Europe & UK are selling Grade A & Grade B versions of this set, which means they have been returned by customers or simply refurbished also digging deeper into the set I compared this to my 2015/16 Philips TV 4K HDR Set and even though my Philips is now essentially 5 years old it still does beat this set in comparison for example this TV as a Interpolation Level of 800, the Interpolation level in my Philips is 1800, plus a few other little side-side comparison makes my TV a better set, so clearly for a 2018/2019 set this is not good, However I do love my TV the picture quality is astonishing but it does lack HDR quality, for example... my TV as a maximum peak brightness of 400nits, I think this TV here will likely have the same or even less Peak Brightness, so this means when you are watching a Pure 4K HDR movie it all seems to dark, you have to use the setting HDR VIVID to make it look decent, but then the tech tries way to hard to process the HDR range of colors & brightness, so I personally find watching blu-rays is better than watching a pure 4K HDR movie plus the internel tech can handle a blu-ray far better than it can handle a Pure 4K HDR movie, this is the problem with lower end HDR sets and why you see so many people argue that sometimes blu-rays is better than 4K, the truth is, 4K HDR is much better but you do need the tech to handle it and lower-end sets from whatever year clearly cannot handle it, simple as... its just a selling technique to get people to buy a budget TV thinking they are getting 4K HDR, but are often sadly disappointed when it comes to HDR picture quality. Now this is a 58" TV so it will look even worse on a larger TV than a smaller one, I have a 49" set, personally If I was in the market for a TV at a budget I think I would invest the the next model up and sacrifice 3" and buy the 55PUS6703 with 3-sided Ambilight at £450 which as got some fantastic reviews online both here in the UK and over the shore in Europe. I think for the Extra £90 the jump up would be worth it, but the choice is always the buyers and Im just sharing my views & opinions.

800ppi in what's scale? What's max a min PPI?


Well put it this way, my Philips TV 2015/16 TV as a PPI Index of 1800, so even though my TV is essentially 5 years old, comparing like for like my older TV beats this 2018/19 set for 4K HDR & Specs, so this TV is clearly budget and will suffer HDR quality, may be OK for Full HD, but I think people who go and buy this are going to be very disappointed by the 4K & HDR quality, if you read my previous comment you will understand why.
No ambilight? Cold!.... Jokes Hot op thanks!
Don't buy these cheap Phillips, they are very shoddy quality. You will regret it.

Okay, but that doesn't change reality. This TV is manufactured by TP Vision. That's reality. If you wish to ramble on about unrelated nonsense, more power to you.
They rebadged it you fool!
Cold. The software on this is awful. The sound isnt much better either. Sounds very tinny.
I like my 2018 Philips but if it's not got Ambilight I would rather get a LG at this price point than this rebadge

I often wonder why people get so aggressive when sharing opinions, what I'm rambling on about is NOT nonsense I am highlighting that my 2015/16 Philips 4K HDR Set is far better spec wise when compared like for like, also can you PROVE its manufactured by TP Vision and NOT Innolux, no you cannot, the proof is in the design, the bexel, the look, even the logo on the set itself, also when you look at the majority of Philips TVs on DisplaySpecs you will notice there is a section entitled "Panel Manufacturer" majority of which read "TP Vision" when looking at mid-range & higher end models, but when you look at this TV on DisplaySpecs, that section is non-existent, actually if you use VPN and check websites in Europe proof can be found that this is made by Innolux, NOT TP Vision, which is quite common for budget sets, not saying that Innolux make bad panels, but when you compare this TV to even 2015/16 Philips Sets with Ambilight, these older sets still win, this means this TV may be fine for Full HD but very poor for 4K HDR, I have a 2015/2016 set which is 4K HDR like I mentioned and specs wise mine beats this, and I also highlighted on my TV, due to the lower-end specs, I find its better to watch blu-rays than Pure 4K HDR films, because they are just to dark and if I put into HDR VIVID Mode, the internel tech is to old to process the HDR range correctly, so its looks washed out and saturated, its not bad, but its not brilliant either, and this TV in this deal is even worse than mine for specs and mine is 5 years older. So to conclude I am saying this will not process HDR & 4K very well, its even got the 2nd lowest PPI index in any Philips Model, you only tend to see this PPI Index of 800 in 32" or 40" budget TVs let alone a 58" which makes it even worse, I gave this TV HEAT for the price, but for an extra £80 you can buy an actual Philips with 3-sided Ambilight which as got some glowing reviews around the UK and Europe. So what I am talking about is NOT nonsense I am making a very valid and factual point, and look at it another way, the supposed RRP of this TV is around £600 but thats not true either, in europe this is around 400-500 euros without a discount applied and neither France or Germany have any reviews of this TV, but numerous Grade A & Grace B sets are been sold in Europe and the UK and even Poland to, which suggests this as been purchased and sent back or refurbished, its not often you cannot find any reviews anywhere in the world, but you can find more info on this TV if you use VPN and change your country to Russia & Poland if you can be bothered to use translate, this really is a budget set and all I am saying is I would steer well clear of this set if it was me and one final note, even the tech is this is way outdated apart from the Saphi OS.
