Philips 55OLED855: cinema experience with image and sound

  • Realistic and high-contrast images
  • Good sound with deep bass
  • Image reflects in shiny foot

When I watch movies, I think it's important that the images look realistic. The OLED screen does not disappoint, of course, and the contrast is superb. Black is really black on the screen. Especially when I view HDR images, I find that everything looks really detailed and colorful. The TV is also fairly bright for an OLED. As a result, I can still see everything well in a lit room and the contrast does not really deteriorate. I do have a bit of trouble with reflections on the screen in the bright room. Ambilight I notice that the lighting behind the TV reacts quickly and accurately to what is happening in the image. This is especially useful if the room is darkened. The colors of the picture shine on the wall behind the TV. The Ambilight is a bit too bright for me in normal mode, but luckily I can adjust that in the settings. Swivel shiny base What immediately stands out about the design is the shiny metal base that is attached in the middle under the TV. Its installation is quite easy, and the TV stands firmly on the furniture. I think it's an advantage that the TV can rotate on the foot. Unfortunately, the beautiful and sleek design of the foot has a disadvantage: the image reflects on the shiny foot. This is especially noticeable when you watch a movie in the dark. Clear bass thanks to subwoofer In terms of sound, the OLED855 has a big advantage. There is a subwoofer on the back of the TV, so deep bass sounds can be heard clearly. Because of this, I think the TV also sounds good when I listen to music or watch an action movie. Thanks to that deeper bass, you get closer to a real cinema experience. Pleasant and extensive smart menu The Android smart platform offers many possibilities. The apps I use the most are right at the top of the menu, such as Netflix, YouTube, and Disney+. The menu is also easy to navigate. I really like that the remote has a QWERTY keyboard on the back. Normally I cast videos on YouTube with my smartphone, but the keyboard makes it just as easy to search for videos via the TV. This is really a plus for me.

Definitely recommended

  • TV is easy to install
  • Colors are great. Am I used to Phillips

The delivery of the TV was exactly on the time stated. There was a dent in the packaging. The delivery person had taken a picture of this and also reported it. If the TV is damaged, we will exchange it without any problems. There was nothing wrong with it. Installing the TV was very simple. In half an hour the TV was up and doing what it had to do. Colors and possibilities are more than good

Nice TV highly recommended

  • nice picture
  • Ambilight
  • For optimal ambi it should be standing/hanging against the wall

Delivery was fast, as is well known from CB. Slightly more expensive than the price fighters but no parallel import, neatly delivered and with the well-known return options. The TV is very good, the image is sharp, the blacks are beautifully detailed. Ambi was new to me and I was a bit dubious about it, but I never want to say without some that improves the picture. I find the remote control a bit less, it takes a lot of getting used to the many options, luckily there are many ways that lead to a good result. There are a number of buttons on it, which I never use and which cannot be programmed for another function. The lighting as described by others is (much) too short. It's not a cheap TV, but you do have a home cinema at home. The sound was a bit disappointing, there is a small woofer on the back, but a soundbar was necessary for me. Bluetooth works fine and very fast, the headphone connection can be adjusted separately, which is handy because of wireless connection with hearing aids. HDMI connections (3) are excellent, the TV adjusts the maximum resolution itself. Sometimes a restart is necessary. The chromecast (not mentioned in the specs!) works flawlessly and a connection to google home is made in a blink and a sigh. A real downside is the extra cover on the back to neatly hide the wiring, if you plug in quite a few connections, you can't possibly get that nice anymore.

Based on the reviews I expected a lot more from the TV

  • sharp image
  • Ambilight
  • menu structure

Bad remote control layout that causes you to regularly press the wrong button. Connecting Bose external speaker via optical cable does not work. Sound from the TV is sometimes no longer present after switching on from standby mode, you really have to pull the plug, wait a while and start all over again to get your sound back. After switching on, also from standby, you always first have to choose the correct source of the ziggo cabinet. The most commonly used menus for image and sound are hidden far away in the menu structure, which should of course be located under a button on the remote control. The built-in chrome cabinet does not work stable, so I placed the old external chrome cabinet in the HDMI connection again. You can remove the cover plate of the cables behind the TV because that does not fit at all if you have connected a few cables, then that cover plate will never go on again. Watch it for a few more days but if my confidence/feeling with this expensive TV doesn't improve, it will go back to the store. All in all, the whole TV so far is quite disappointing, very unfortunate.

Top device, premium class.

  • image quality unimaginably clear
  • the convenience of you tube directly accessible
  • not used all the buttons on the remote yet

We have thought long and hard. We are both 70+ and what do you have to do with a new TV? After all, our old TV still played fine, was about 8 years old, also Philips ambilight, 40 inches. So why? Thinking "too" long afterwards. Now we know why. A larger image (55 inches), incredibly clear and sharp and the many possibilities enrich our daily existence.
