Ambilight 3-sided for unique vision
Unique to Philips, Ambilight technology expands the picture’s presence, giving a more immersive and engaging experience. With intelligent LEDs around the top and sides of the TV, colour from the picture is cast into the room – in real time. Colour, vibrancy and excitement move beyond the screen and into your living room to bring you a viewing experience beyond the ordinary.

Philips P5 Perfect Picture Engine delivers stunning image quality
With huge processing power, the Philips P5 Engine delivers the best picture possible – whatever the source. Enjoy the deepest blacks and the brightest whites, the most vivid, brilliant colours and natural, lifelike skin tones. You also get Philips’ most fluid, razor sharp pictures with incredible detail and depth, in sport, movie, or any other genres - every time and from any source.

HDR optimised, with HDR10+
For the highest quality picture, HDR10+ offers scene-by-scene HDR mastering for the truest, most accurate HDR picture technology to date. With HDR10+ each scene is optimised, meaning the maximum amount of detail is shown – even in the brightest or darkest moments. The 50PUS8555 also supports standard HDR10 and HLG formats.

Dolby Vision for dramatic imaging
As well as supporting HDR10+, this Philips 50” TV is also compatible with Dolby Vision - a leading format in Hollywood and cinemas around the world. Dolby Vision also adjusts the picture to take full advantage of each display's characteristics and presents an optimized picture for each scene in specially mastered content.

Dolby Atmos compatible sound
With Dolby Atmos decoding, this Philips 50 inch TV has the potential to deliver a more immersive sound with a truly cinematic feel. Other sound enhancements include Clear Dialogue for enhanced speech, Night mode for reduced dynamic volume and Bass Enhancement for a richer sound.

Android TV for smart TV
In a complicated world of catch-up TV, Android TV makes sense of it all. Using a clear, intuitive interface, Android lets you effortlessly switch between Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube and many other services. Android lets you pick up where you left off in the latest series or check out new movie releases – all without getting lost within complicated menus.

Voice control with built-in Google Assistant and works with Alexa
Working via the built-in Android system, Google Assistant helps you find content, apps and even controls compatible smart home devices, such as the Philips Hue lighting system. All this is available by simple voice command. Alternatively, connect your Amazon Echo or similar Alexa device and use voice commands via Alexa.

Sleek design – with swivel stand
With its metal finish bezel, the 50PUS8555 exudes quality. The swivel stand lets you get the perfect viewing angle – avoiding annoying reflections in the room.

Handy, QWERTY remote
Flip the remote over and you’ll find a very handy QWERTY keypad. Perfect for entering passwords or for entering text on search engines and websites, this thoughtful feature saves a huge amount of time compared with using a shared numeric keypad.

Fully connected
Four HDMI sockets make it easy to connect a Blu-ray player, games console, TV set-top box and other device. All sockets are HDMI 2.0 version with HDCP 2.3, making this TV compatible with UHD Blu-ray players and 4K HDR streaming services. Other connections include twin USB sockets, featuring recording to a compatible USB device.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not so good for premium line of Philips Before I bought it I've done some research. It is Philips only by name. Made by Chinese company TP vision to which Philips sold its display division back in 2012. Materials used are definitely not premium and got sort of cheap feel comparing to my Samsung 6 series from 2014. Android tv is a great feature. UHD looks good when watching YT sample videos (info pops up in the bottom right corner that it is uhd/hdr/dolby etc signal) so be aware because some videos have it only in the title but not actually HDR signal. Upgraded my Netflix to premium so I can watch 4k movies. Dolby vision in my opinion doesn't work good on this TV. Picture goes darker and brighter in some scenes which could be annoying. Maybe needs to be calibrated but as amateur I expected it to be ready out of the box on factory settings. I'm really missing pointer feature from samsung/LG remotes. That small keyboard on the back of this remote is OK but not easy for bigger fingers. Should be one more USB. You can plug in some old PC camera and it should work (works for me) so you can use Google duo communicator. If you a Google person it is great, not sure about apple. Tv froze on one occasion so far where I had to pull the plug out to reset it. Software was updated after first plugging in and singing on to Google account. Ambilight is a very nice feature but not a deal breaker for me. Overall I could have fork out bit more for a sony one however I'm still happy. Service and communication from richer sounds excellent.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ambilight is the best Really happy with our purchase. It’s a very good tv. Picture is nice and sharp, colours vivid and bright especially watching 4K content. There is slight motion blur and I do mean slight, and not off putting. The sound is good as others have mentioned although I do toggle between built in sound and 5.1 set up. Just depends what I’m watching. If it’s normal tv I just leave it coming from the tv. The remote is nice and simple with the added qwerty keyboard on the reverse. Buttons have a nice click. Definitely the best feature is Philips ambilight. It’s not a gimmick as some people think. It’s hard to explain but it’s fantastic. You can customise is too to find what works for you/room. It can also be turned off which I have found doing in the daytime as direct sunlight in the room goes against it. Or have a custom colour as a flat light. Overall it’s a well made simple to use tv. Did I mention the ambilight is quite good too?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice TV Along with Richer Sounds excellent customer service I'm now very happy with this TV. I found it easy to set-up and the picture quality is really good. Smart apps work well and the bonus of the ambilight gives this TV the edge, really does enhance your viewing. Very nice TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV and just love the Ambilights 50 inch TV a great size and the Ambilights that i thought would be distracting aren't they really add to the atmosphere

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous TV I am so pleased that I decided on this Philips! Everything about it is top notch. Picture superb, connectivity superb, ambilight brilliant, usability effortless. Ignore reviews who say that it tilts back - they have set up the stand incorrectly - and it is a very easy job! Great looking quality chrome stand that swivels - perfect. Highly recommended and I cannot imagine a better TV - I watch lots of football and golf and the picture is faultless.
