Total immersion with Ambilight 3-sided

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, with this extraordinary Philips 55 inch TV.

Delivering the ultimate picture quality, this Philips TV uses OLED technology. Unlike conventional LED TVs, OLED doesn't need a backlight. Each pixel makes its own colour and light. When they are turned off, they are completely black. With deeper blacks you get enhanced colours and astonishing contrast that allows you to enjoy the purest, most lifelike image.

Introducing artificial intelligence, with P5 AI Perfect Picture Engine
The P5 AI Perfect Picture engine is the ‘brain’ behind the picture and even ‘thinks’ in a similar way to us. The powerful processor uses deep-learning AI algorithms to get the most lifelike images possible. Maximising detail, colour realism and smooth motion, the P5 AI engine optimises OLED and Ambilight for a brilliant performance.

HDR to the max, with HDR10+ and WCG 99%
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. Combined with Wide Colour Gamut at 99%, this Philips OLED TV produces stunning image realism. The 55OLED805 also supports standard HDR10 and HLG formats.

Dolby Vision for dramatic imaging
As well as supporting HDR10+, this Philips 55” OLED 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 for enhanced sound
With a Dolby Atmos processor built-in, the Philips 55OLED805 decodes Atmos sound tracks - giving you the potential for an even more immersive sound. Featuring a built-in 2.1 speaker set-up with subwoofer and a 50 watt amp, it provides powerful, well-rounded 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.

Beautiful design – right down to the leather-backed remote
Featuring a low profile design with super-slim bezel, the 55OLED805 is a minimalist masterpiece. The quality of design extends to the remote control, which features a tactile, Muirhead leather-backed finish and backlit keys. Discreet feet are easily detachable for wall mounting the TV.

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. Throw in an optical connection for a soundbar/base plus headphone socket and you've everything you need from your new TV.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Value For Money. Coming from an old Led television which I thought the picture quality had been really good. How wrong I was this tv blows it away in quality. It makes you want to watch, and has so many features for the money. Ambilight is a game changer couldn't imagine watching without it now, definitely makes the screen appear bigger. Adds atmosphere to movies. Sound-wise very full sound plenty of bass I don't think you need a soundbar. Glad I went with the Philips now and didn't spend a lot more money for less features. First time with dealing with Richer Sounds and there Customer service is fantastic, good helpful advice, not pushy in any way. very smooth process and the two man delivery is peace of mind Knowing your tv is not going to be thrown around. All in all a great product from a great Company.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hard to fault it This was a slightly bigger upgrade from a Sony BRAVIA KD49XF9005BU1 and it almost beats in it every way. Sound is better menu and remote better, picture quality had to be better as it oled verses uhd but I will say when viewing non HD programmes or older films it does look nicer on the Sony. Last but not least Love the hue lights they really work great even though tv is in a fire place alcove on a table and even near the wall, can't imagine buying a TV without hue every again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just - WOW If you're a glasses-wearer, try and remember what it was like the first time you put your glasses on and went outside. Suddenly, the world was in focus, and you could see things you've never seen before. That's what this TV is like. I upgraded from a 50" 1080p Plasma, so not exactly a bad device, but the difference is night and day. "Reference" material such as Planet Earth II in HDR and 4K is jaw-dropping. Ambilight also adds an extra dimension. It's not a gimmick, it brings the room alive. Highly recommended, great service as ever from Richer Sounds, good delivery - do yourself a favour and buy one !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb picture quality and sound. I bought the Phillips 805 55 oled TV weeks ago, just finished decorating and setting it all up. It's easy to set up and worth scrolling through the settings. The picture quality is second to none (vivid) colour is amazing and the 4k really shows off the clarity of this model, well worth the money. Thanks Richer sounds

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great picture and colour quality I still have an old Philips 21:9 cinema tv which we love and really appreciate the Ambilight feature. Upgrading our other Samsung tv, I chose this Philips due to the reviews and we wanted the Ambilight too. Certainly the picture quality is great and the colour very accurate. It has the up to date apps for Netflix, Prime etc, but the user interface is not as slick and intuitive as with the Samsung tv. It was always an issue with our old Philips tv, but used as a cinema screen it was not a problem. As a main tv though, those shortcomings are more pronounced. We particularly find the process of recording a programme more involved, it does not allow for recordings of a series and most frustrating is the fact that you cannot watch any other channel while a recording is in progress. Not an issue if you only use catch up services, but we like recording programmes. So loss of a star for us.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great TV, but not if you want to use Sat tuner I really love the picture on this TV, the Android O/S is fast and pretty bug free so far. I really wanted to give this TV 5* it has been on my wishlist since the 804, no stock or not enough money has held me up till now. if you want to watch linear tv through an aerial then the Freeview play works really smooth. If you watch Linear TV through Satellite then either budget for a freesat/skybox or buy another brand. As per my complaints to philips if you dont have Freesat licence or similar channle management system dont sell TV with sat tuner as its useless, channels in crazy order and impssible to manage etc- makes TV no more than a monitor. My friend doesnt like the remote but I think it is class, I love it. The thing that makes this TV better than all the other OLEDs out there (as they all pretty similar) is this has Ambilight and this sets this TV off more than anything- Ambilight and only Ambilight is the reason I got engineer to swap my sat dish for aerial and not swap the TV with Richersounds for a Sony.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very very disappointed We had our new tv delivered on October 17th. Ever since we have had problems with out of sync voices, no sound when watching Sky or tv off of the aerial after turning over from Netflix, Disney or You Tube. This isn’t all the time, but it happens. We have contacted Customer service on numerous occasions and get sent an email telling us to reset to factory settings, check cables and all the usual things. We even bought new HDMI leads and changed the sky box. We have asked for an engineer but haven’t heard back from Phillips. We absolutely love the picture and ambilight and are truly gutted about the other problems. We have now reached the point of asking for a refund but, again haven’t heard back from Phillips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous OLED TV Wonderful, sharp picture and good range of features and apps. The sound is pretty good too for a TV, though I have bypassed it in preference to a Sonos Beam/One surround set-up instead (which works perfectly.) The Ambilight is stunning, especially when combined with Hue lights, which I would heartily recommend. I have 3 Hue Plays under the screen so the lighting is 4-sided, and further Hue lights to the rear. The synchronisation and atmosphere created is great, so much so that my other half, who previously said she didn't see the point, is an immediate convert and now has it on all the time You may have seen isolated reviews that the set regularly wants go offline for screen refreshing. I would disregard these as personally I have only had it happen twice so far, both times when the set was on all day and only for 10 minutes. I consider this an infrequent and very minor inconvenience well worth having to protect against possible screen damage from what is, after all, not regular viewing. Good ahead and choose this TV - you won't regret it! I had deliberated for ages whether to go for this or a Sony A8/LG CX and am very glad I went with the Philips. Usual excellent service and value from Richer Sounds too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from this tv blew my mind! After a long internet search, and with an ageing 10year old tv on the way out, I decided to purchase the Philips 55OLED805 just prior to Christmas 2020. Ordering on the Richer Sounds (RS) website was easy and I really appreciated being able to talk to a RS representative the following morning, as the confirmation email didn't immediately arrive (this was due to gmail being down at the time of order). Delivery was quick, communication with the driver was perfect and with no issues. Thanks RS. OK, now onto the actual TV. Setup was simple - took about 15mins to carefully remove the tv from the box and install the 2 stand / feet. Then initiation took roughly a further 15mins - connecting to my home network quickly and locating the Sky HD box HDMI. The advice is to have the tv 20cm away from the wall to get the full benefit from Ambilight. Picture. wise: WOW. Without any tweaks, the picture is sharp and blacks are black. There are a few settings to try out to suit your preference; I found that the vivid setting was too bright for films and opted for the natural setting or movie setting in the first instances. I have since tweaked the brightness on the custom setting. I would recommend playing around with standard HD content as well as 4K and adjust accordingly. Any Sky channels that are not HD don't look too bad, but there is an obvious dip in clarity with standard definition. Sound is decent. My living room isn't big and the sound fills it easily, though does lack bass. I have a soundbar which I use for films. The Ambilight feature is fantastic. I haven't turned it off and find it really builds atmosphere. The remote is also very good - sleek and well laid out. There is a backlight to the buttons, however, you need to press a button to enable the backlight each time. Not a massive issue, just something you get used to. The home screen is great - has the usual tv channel hubs and of course Netflix, Amazon Prime, YouTube and Disney plus. Being android based it doesn't have the apple tv app - again, to be expected. The android OS works fast and screencasting from my mobile to the TV (with YouTube) is quick. Upon arrival, the tv did need a software update but didn't take too long to install. In short, this TV is amazing. I am very happy that I went for the OLED vs. LED as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service. Courteous and professional. I bought this tv online and collected in-store just before Christmas. Unfortunately I haven’t had the opportunity to set it up as we had arranged to go away and won’t be in a position to set it up until mid- February. However I just wanted to congratulate the team at Richer Sounds for a first class service in the actual sale and arranging the collection.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality at a good price The difference in clarity and colour rendition moving to OLED is impressive. It's the same LG panel as all the others but it's cheaper than most and Philips have their own software which makes for really good rendering of fast moving scenes and different modes seem to work well. Ambilight does actually add something to the overall experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV, Great Price, Great Service After some research from HDTV test (thanks Vincent Teoh) and a major price discount decided to buy from Richer Sounds as 6 year warranty was offered and this was not available at the same price elsewhere. Sales staff were knowledgeable and helpful and delivery staff were great. Whole process was seamless and went without a hitch. Could not be happier. TV was as wonderful as expected. Great picture quality and features and ambilight is awesome!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive Great service from Chester branch, had the 65pus9435 for less than a week and couldn't get on with the size (too big, gave headaches) so upgraded to the smaller 55 oled, wow what a difference! For an extra £100 the 55oled805 picture is far superior, anything 4k is outstanding and standard HD is much better than the 65 LCD I originally went for. No hassle with the swap over and I'm now 100% happy with this Philips oled TV.
