Philips 50PUS8505 Review • Excellent and affordable TV

Philips The One

When choosing a new television, you cannot always count on a very high budget. But you don’t want to give up the main features and modern technologies for that. That’s where Philips 50PUS8505 comes in, a smart and attractive proposition from the Dutch company . Starting with a very wide range of formats from 43 inches to 70 inches in its largest model, all of them with 4K resolution, compatible with Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos and with several strengths, such as the use of its P5 engine to process the image, a remote control with speaker to take advantage of the Google assistant or its Ambilight lighting system. A proposal with a price range between 550 and 1,200 euros. These are the characteristics that make Philips 50PUS8505 one of the most interesting proposals you can find if you have a tighter budget.

4K IMAGE QUALITY COMPATIBLE WITH HDR10 + AND DOLBY VISION

Philips 50PUS8505 TV achieves its own image quality of higher ranges, thanks to its compatibility with the main advanced picture formats. Thus, its LED panels with 4K resolution are compatible with HDR10 + and Dolby Vision . A guarantee that we can see the image of modern series and movies with more vibrant and defined colors. In addition, with the P5 Perfect Motion engine, a smoother , more defined image with a more marked contrast is achieved to enjoy the television experience in all the content you watch.

The Philips The One series is designed to fit into your living room or bedroom, whether you want a secondary TV for a smaller room or a large TV to fill the entire wall of your living room. Thus, we have an input format of 43 inches, medium formats of 50 and 58 inches and large formats of 65 and 70 inches.

Philips 50PUS8505: THE AMBILIGHT EXPERIENCE

If you already know the Philips universe, it will not surprise you that one of its most recognizable hallmarks is light. Specifically, the LED light strips that their televisions have on the back of the equipment to create a unique experience. The magic of these lights is that they are able to follow the action that occurs on the television in real time and spread the colors towards the wall or the furniture where we have the television. By looking for a simile, the result is a feeling of warmth similar to what you can experience in front of a fireplace.

In addition, the lights do not remain in their ability to follow the action of the TV. You can also configure them to follow the sound (and liven up your living room with a light-filled party) or create a lounge atmosphere in your most intimate gatherings. TVs in the 8505 The One range feature Ambilight on three sides (top and sides).

SURROUND SOUND WITH DOLBY ATMOS

Despite being a television that lives between the input range and the mid-range, the Dutch company has not wanted to forget about the sound section. Philips 50PUS8505 televisions incorporate a double speaker system with 10W power . Although it is a step below the performance that your Philips 805 Oled can have, this system is compatible with Dolby Atmos , which means that we will enjoy a more immersive experience with the feeling that the sound really moves through space with objects in the scene.

ANDROID TV EXPERIENCE WITH THE GOOGLE ASSISTANT

Philips 50PUS8505 televisions rely on the Android TV operating system. If you regularly use Android phones, this platform will be very comfortable for you to connect the contents of your mobile and have your preferences saved directly on the TV. In addition, with the advantage that you will find a large number of applications to maximize the use of television. YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, HBO, Rakuten TV and a long etcetera to have everything you need at your fingertips.

Along with the capabilities of Android TV, the Philips 50PUS8505 remote allows you to go one step further thanks to the inclusion of a microphone. Through it, you can connect with the Google voice assistant and perform all kinds of functions with just a voice command. From changing channels to carrying out a direct search in an application like YouTube. Or even control through your TV the smart devices that you have connected to Google Home (smart lights, robot vacuum cleaners, thermostats …). And if you are more of Alexa, you can also control this assistant directly from the remote.

Conclusion

The Philips 50PUS8505e series is now available in stores . Their prices start at 550 euros for the 43-inch format. If you opt for 50 inches, the cost goes up to 700 euros, while the 55-inch model will cost you 900 euros. The larger 65-inch and 70-inch models are priced at € 1,000 and € 2,000 respectively.
