A smart TV that embodies elegance, refinement, efficiency and cutting-edge technologies. Philips’ PUS8505 / 12 is everything you could ever want in your living room, at a very competitive price . The enthusiasm of those who have already had the opportunity to try it confirms this: Philips has been able to hit the mark, developing a truly noteworthy smart TV.

The design is not only slim, linear and sophisticated, with an ultra-thin panel with virtually invisible bezels, but it allows you to install and rotate the screen as you please. In fact, the central base is rotating, and this also allows you to tilt the television panel , which has silver finishes.
In addition, like most Philips smart TVs, this 2020 model also features Ambilight technology . The latter reflects the colors and shades of the contents transmitted on the screen on the rear wall, through LEDs positioned along the frames. In this way, the vision of the images is as if it were amplified, in a completely natural and pleasant way.
In addition, the Ambilight function can also be activated during games or, if desired, be used to promote sleep and create a more pleasant awakening. The picture quality is one of the characteristics to have been most appreciated by users, and the reasons are more than understandable:
- Maximum Resolution (UHD 4K)
- HDR with compatibility to different formats
- 2100 PPI (Picture Performance Index)
- Dolby Vision to watch the contents as they were designed and created by the directors
In addition, the Philips PUS8505 / 12 is also equipped with the Philips P5 processor , which optimizes every parameter of the image: color, contrast, sharpness and visual depth. In short, Philips has really given its best about the visual quality, but the same can be said for the sound sector. The smart TV benefits from two full-range speakers with a total power of 20 watts output, and numerous acoustic enhancements:
- Dolby Atmos
- Clear and crisp dialogue
- Sound with AI (Artificial Intelligence)
- 5-band equalizer
- Automatic volume leveler
- Bass enhancement
- Night mode
In addition, thanks to DTS Play-Fi , you can connect your Philips smart TV to any speaker or sound speaker in your home, so that you can follow the program you are watching even if you have to be away from the television for a while. However, we are only talking about devices with a wireless connection.
As for the operating system, even if it is Android , we believe that Philips could have done something more. There are few apps available, and many are incompatible. In addition, the function of voice control via Alexa is quite limited, as it performs just the basic functions. The positive aspect lies in the interface, which appears to be easy to navigate.
In conclusion, we believe that this Philips smart TV is a complete, innovative and quality product, but 90% . Our opinion is that the Dutch multinational should have invested more in the smart section, making it a little more interesting.
