Philips 55POS9002

 

Philips 55POS9002 review: Philips' second OLED offers up irresistible subtlety, detail and naturalism. It's not the most dynamic OLED, however.

Excellent value ; Impressively detailed, natural pictures ; Attractive, space-saving design

Not the brightest OLED around ; Black levels not as deep as some OLEDs ; Android TV can frustrate

For a substantial corner of the serious AV world, the 55POS9002’s focus on subtlety, detail and naturalism will prove hard to resist – especially when they clock it’s price.

Philips 55POS9002 review

 

Adding Ambilight to OLED is brilliant, but this Philips has much more to offer.

Stunning HDR performance ; Ambilight is as lovely as ever ; Decent sound ; Nicely balanced delivery of non-4K content

Glaring app omissions ; Some rivals offer greater nuance ; Motion processing isn’t quite perfect

A real return to form for Philips and one of the finest TVs currently available, particularly for HDR

Philips 55POS9002 review

 

Ambilight meets OLED, but this Philips is so much more than a one-trick pony

Truly glorious HDR ; Ambilight is as awesome as ever ; Sounds pretty good ; Standard dynamic range (SDR) content is nicely balanced

A poor selection of apps ; Can be beaten for subtlety and motion processing

The Ambilight is awesome, but even if you took it away this would be one of the finest tellies that money can buy

Philips 55POS9002 4K HDR OLED TV review

 

While the 55POS9002 isn’t the showiest OLED TV in town, it’s unexpectedly natural and refined pictures, plus affordable price, will win it many AV fans.

Philips 55POS9002 OLED TV review

 

Philips returns to OLED with stunning results

Ambilight works a treat ; Excellent all-round picture quality ; Good value ; Attractive design

Android TV can annoy ; Slightly weak sound ; Complicated to use ; More dynamic images elsewhere

The way Philips’ new P5 picture processing partners with OLED screen technology in the 55POS9002 is a revelation, leading to some of the most natural and immersive pictures around. Add Philips’ lovely Ambilight technology to the mix, and at £2,000 the...

Philips 55POS9002 review: Yet another OLED marvel from Philips

 

Philips improves on its already brilliant first-generation OLED TV to create an Ambilight-equipped 4K HDR stunner

True blacks, vibrant colours and wide viewing angles ; Impressive motion handling and video processing ; Ambilight reduces eye fatigue if set correctly

Very bright detail in HDR movies can be missing ; Android TV could be easier to use ; No Dolby Vision or HDR10+ dynamic metadata support

The Philips 55POS9002 is a stunning TV. For this level of performance, the asking price is eminently reasonable, and with great motion handling, video processing and Ambilight/ Philips Hue integration, it definitely deserves a place on your wish list.
