Philips televisions have always been known for offering good performance regardless of the range. This time we want to focus on the average, since we have found the Philips 55PUS7906 / 12 an option that seems well equipped, in addition, it offers a cost that in our point of view is acceptable compared to the features it integrates. Without further ado , we are going to know in detail everything that the Philips 55PUS7906 offers us.
Exterior design of the Philips 55PUS7906 / 12
Its design does not convince us too much, since it shows parts with a more exposed thickness
Normally this firm does not usually work much on the appearance of its most basic models, and that can be a small problem for those users who pay more attention to these details. However, in our opinion, an aesthetic is added according to the rest of the aspects that this model offers . For starters, it is an acceptable size.
Which will be well received by rooms or medium-sized rooms where it will fit much better. Something that we must highlight is that its front has relatively thin bezels that will give it a more elegant appearance, therefore, we think it is an excellent recommendation to place this TV directly on the wall so that it looks more .
This small detail also favors the reproduction of content, since the useful space will be much better and what we see should not present obstacles. What we liked the least was the back, since it has a fairly exposed thickness that detracts from the beauty of the TV , in addition, we can say that its construction materials are weak.
We are going to receive good connectivity that adds the essential connectors, for example, we receive four HDMI 2.0 inputs to connect external devices, likewise, we have two USB 2.0 with its dual function of playing and recording content. Extra options that we find are its satellite input, its audio output and its antenna. Let’s move on to the wireless where we will be quite equipped with its Wi-Fi Direct , Bluetooth 5.0 and DLNA .
Image quality and general functions of the Philips 55PUS7906
The Philips 55PUS7906 / 12 does not present the best image quality, however, it will be acceptable for almost any content, and that is because we have a 4K resolution that gives us four times more power than Full HD, therefore we must receive better details, which in theory should be shown in a more realistic and deeper state .
In this case we are going to receive an Edge LED backlight that will not be the best experience we are going to have, especially if we place the TV in a very dark or bright area, therefore, the placement will be something that can become more relevant . Although we should not worry too much about this issue, since enhancement technologies are added.
They will not be too many as we have seen in more advanced televisions, however, the ones that are integrated do a good job and they will allow us to enjoy a much better experience. In this case we have Pixel Precise Ultra HD that greatly improves color reproduction, since it can be seen in a more natural and vivid way.
Likewise, we will see an interesting improvement in parameters such as contrast and brightness thanks to the Light Sensor that seeks to regulate the exposure of both so that we receive greater sharpness and depth. Thanks to Ultra Resolution , the highest possible quality will be maintained even in content with a lower definition. It also works with HDR .
We cannot expect great things from audio, in fact, we consider it to be one of its weakest points, since its power is not enough when listening to more demanding content. In this case we only have two speakers that offer 20W of total power, so it is best to purchase an external sound bar for higher quality, although we have important enhancement technologies for more immersive audio such as AI Sound , Clear Dialogue , Dolby Atmos and DTS HD .
Smart TV / software review and more highlights
Enjoy a large catalog of applications thanks to the Android system
The most interesting thing about the Philips 55PUS7906 is that it offers Android as its system, which is always a positive thing, since it offers us a large number of functions. First of all, we must accept that it is a fluid platform with good optimization , likewise, it offers the largest catalog of applications with more than 5,000 options to install.
Obviously not all of them will be functional and that is why we must be careful not to have garbage on the TV. Another thing to note is that it will have compatibility for Google Assistant and Alexa, two really useful assistants that will allow us to control certain functions using only the voice, so we enjoy a better order.
By including this system, we are offered Chromecast which is a really incredible option, since it allows us to transmit content such as movies, music and videos in general from different devices. Finally, we must know that the Ambilight technology is equipped that offers us LED lights around the TV for a better experience.
