With unique, 4-sided Ambilight, the Philips 55OLED856 draws you into the heart of the action.

Expanded vision with Ambilight 4-sided
Although this is a smaller OLED TV, 4-sided Ambilight makes it appear much more immersive. This unique Philips technology enjoys its ultimate incarnation, with 4-sided Ambilight. Using intelligent LEDs all around 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.

The ultimate picture technology - OLED
Delivering the ultimate picture quality, this Philips 55 inch 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+
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 55OLED856 also supports standard HDR10 and HLG formats.

Gaming made better
With HDMI 2.1 connectivity at its heart, the Philips 55OLED856 has many features that makes it the ideal choice for gaming. Once connected to one of the HDMI 2.1 sockets, ultra-low-latency mode is automatically selected when begining game play. VRR (Variable Refresh Rate) and FreeSync are supported, giving you the fastest and smoothest response possible. Unique to Philips, Ambilight’s gaming mode brings another dimension of immersion.

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 55OLED856 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, Disney+ 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 (Works with Amazon Alexa).

Stylish design, with T-bar stand
Featuring a T-bar stand in dark chrome finish, the 55OLED856 stands out from the crowd. The quality of design extends to the remote control, which features a tactile, Muirhead leather-backed finish and backlit keys.

Whether you’re watching a movie, TV or gaming, do it in style, with the Philips 55OLED856.

Please note, this Smart TV features third party Apps. These Apps may be modified or withdrawn at any time. There may also be a delay in launching some of the featured Apps.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice picture, not perfect though The guy in Richer Sounds was great and explained all the available options well and let us experience various content on the TVs and sound bars before we chose what we wanted. They found a few options that fit right within our budget, which was great. Regarding the TV overall, we're very happy. The picture is great with black really being black and much detail being visible in the shadows, etc. The picture is very crisp (sometimes too crisp, if that's possible) and motion does seem a little strange sometimes, but I wonder whether that's because I'm not used to 4K yet as all the TVs we looked at seemed strange when a panning shot was shown. Hard to explain what I mean, but it looks artificially clear, if that makes sense. The remote isn't great and the TV often seems to think I've pressed a different button to the one I have pressed, which is frustrating. Ambilight is a fun gimmick, but I wouldn't base my choice of TV on that alone. I tend to have it on for TV and off for film. It's cool that you can turn the ambilight on while the screen is off. The Android interface is good for the most part, but does misbehave sometimes. I've had to turn it off at the wall once because it wouldn't turn on and often the google assistant won't work at all, or won't leave the bottom of the screen after performing an action. I'm also a little annoyed that the top banner on the home screen is pushing content from streaming services that I don't subscribe to (e.g. Disney+). It feels like an advert and I don't think I should have adverts on a product that I paid full price for!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Philips 55 Oled856 Purchased this TV purely for the Ambient light feature which is a joy to behold and adds a whole new level to watching TV. Look out for Ambient settings where you can add existing Hue lighting to sync with the TV. My only criticism is the settings menu it just doesn't seem to flow or have I just been spoilt having used LG's excellent smart TV menu for the last 4 yes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You won’t regret spending the money on this….! Bought from the Eton store with James advice - fantastic TV especially when combined with the current Philips Soundbar offer. Useful info which I couldn’t find on google - we know the main difference between the 806 and 856 is the stand, but the 856 stand swivels left and right. Well worth choosing this model if you have a tight space.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent TV for a all round entertainment Had the set for a couple of weeks and very happy so far. Brilliant picture and easy set up, once out of the box. Ambilight on 4 sides works very well to add to the cinematic experience. Sound is good for a flat screen, but still recommend plugging into an amp' or sound bar/base. Remote is classy and backlit. Swivelling stand is also extremely well made, classy and level adjustable. Only grumble would be the thickness of the screen on the upper half of the set - just too thin. Just because it can be made that slim doesn't mean it should, especially as the bottom half has to bulk out to house the processors, connnections and speakers etc. Had a couple of squeaky bum moments getting it out of the box!! In summary an extremely good, classy and well made TV. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TV I brought this TV 2 weeks ago, and it is fabulous! No need for a sound-bar! The sound ended up being better than I thought it would. So far so good!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from stunning picture have always purchased panasonic televisions before but saw this philips oled and after reading the reviews decided to purchase. I certainly wasnt disappointed as this is a superb tv. picture quality is amazing and the ambilight feature makes such a difference to the viewing experience, even the wife commented on it !!I paired it with a denon soundbar and subwoofer and the sound is just wonderful. was very pleased with the excellent next day delivery service from richer sounds and when i had a slight problem setting the tv up was very impressed with the instant help i received when i called the helpline, which was quickly diagnosed as a faulty hdmi lead. Great service and a brilliant tv, buy this and you wont be disappointed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent picture and great sound This TV is awesome... The picture is crisp, the sound is really good, which unusual on regular in-built TV speakers and the Ambilight effect gives it the "cool factor"!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great ambilight, great sound, great image I brought the 55 inch and what a great purchase. The TV looks great with the ambilight effects. The sound on this TV is really good too. I compared this OLED to the QLED from Samsung and this wins hands down. Well done Philips
