What are the reviews like for it?
Saphi would avoid
The 804 is a fair bit better - newer panel, newer processor, android, this is pretty much last year's 803 set rehashed. Still decent for an oled.

Bear in mind Philips have released the hue sync box in the US $249 and will be over here early next year so don't count ambilight as a huge advantage of you were considering a b9 or sony set. Only drawback is no Dolby vision compatibility.

So that's going to be 249 quid plus the bridge and Hue bulbs? It sort of puts a huge premium on those other non-ambilight TVs compared to simply buying a Philips TV with built in Ambilight, certainly for those with no existing Hue stuff.

I wonder if this development is the pre-cursor to TPVision licensing Ambilight tech to other TV manufacturers? That patent is running out so I wouldn't blame them for maximising income from it in the meantime...

From what I’ve read, this set and the 804 both have Dolby vision compatibility.

I think the poster was referring to the Hue Sync Box there?
It's amazing TV to be honest pictures great better then Samsung q70r
I want this tv but I'm holding out till black Friday. This is Phillips budget/affordable OLED. It launched fairly recently at £1500rrp for the 55 inch so this is a decent price. Notably, this doesn't run android so no Google play store, its got some other OS which I forget the name of - its still got Netflix & what not. Apparently the remote on these doesn't have the keyboard on the back and the speakers aren't bowers and Wilkins which in addition to the processor has enabled them to shave the price down.

No user reviews more a mini company review of whats said about the TV, not from someone who has used it.
Looking for C9 or 804 to drop in price over the next few weeks. Any insider info?

Agreed - these are the 2 sets I’m considering too. Both look gorgeous and the same panels. Ambilight is a bonus and I really love it, but the menu system of the LG is probably much better and I believe it has the latest/best HDMI compatibility for the next gen consoles too.....hmmm

Difficult decision buddy. I am also drawn in by the ambilight. But HDMI 2.1 is seen as a future proof solution. Hope we see some good deals as I am itching to buy

Ha ha I know how you feel mate I’ve wanted and OLED for ages and was always set to get an LG based on all the top reviews and from what I’d seen in person, but the 804 looks very decent indeed. I’d potentially go for the LG with the hue sync box if it works just as well as the ambilight function built in on the Philips TVs, but not if the extra cost outlay is going to be huge. Then I could see it being the best of both worlds. I think Philips have missed a trick not incorporating the 2.1 and it also baffles me why they don’t have all the catch up tv apps built in and only allow bbc iPlayer (I know it’s not a massive deal at all, but it’s another small draw which surely is easy to incorporate - no doubt a cost/licensing thing).

Why? Is it bad?


It's not android. You can't have Kodi on it and sideload other apps of your choice.

Couldn't you use an Amazon fire for that? It seems like the android equivalent is ~£400 more expensive.
