Found 12th Jan
Was going to pick up the 6703 today but after putting the 6803 in my wishlist it notified me of a price drop of £50.

Not entirely sure which one is better as I cannot find many reviews on this model but guessing it's better as it is more expensive.

Will be collecting at 3pm if anyone can help me choose.

Any ideas?
Is it one of those TV's that gets made a slightly different colour for a particular retailer so they can call it exclusive to them?

I think the only difference with this one to the 6703 is the speaker under the screen. Was really hoping it would also have a 4th hdmi port as thats the killer for me with these tvs

I did get the 6803 on the logic that it was reduced. Seen lots of reviews on the 6703 but hardly any on this.

I am currently watching Luther on it and not really blown away but it's not 4k just HD.

I wasn't blown away by red dead redemption 2 either it appeared very dark compared to my previous Samsung 4k (which packed in after the warranty ran out) I guess I need to do some tweaking to the picture and sound.

Ambilight is awesome though.

Thanks for sharing this. I know from a number of reviews of the 703 model that out of the box the Philips looks pretty awful and is one of those sets that requires a lot of work in the settings, at which point it is supposedly a cut above the competition at the same price. I don't know if that's the same case with the 803 but if you find a settings tutorial and find that to be so, I'd appreciate hearing about it, thanks!

Funnily enough the demo mode looks amazing but vivid mode looks oversaturated. Movie mode looks too dark and the sound is really tinny considering it has a speaker underneath. As the demo mode looks so amazing I can only hope that one day I will master the settings

My sympathies. I appreciate it's a little off-topic as this refers to its predecessor but What Hi-Fi, after saying it's difficult to set up, said of the award winning 703 model:-

"You’ll have to turn off the default ‘Eco’ mode, undo all the noise-reduction settings and adjust the contrast and brightness. Then you’ll have to do it all again for HDR content, because the television treats this separately.

For non-HDR content we use the Movie preset, pushing up the colour a little while toning down sharpness, contrast, and brightness.

Colour Enhancement gets put on minimum, and Contrast Mode should be tuned so it’s “Optimized for Picture”. When the TV detects an HDR source, we prefer the “HDR Vivid” mode for top-notch performance."

I found a Youtube video on calibrating another model but, again, I'm not sure how helpful it is unless Philips have a generic calibration setting in their factory for a number of models. I'll keep looking and hopefully find something specific to this model.
