My previous TVs were Panasonic UT50 and ST60 plasmas and I think the OLED is big improvement. Here are some things to consider with the Philips OLEDs:
they do not support Dolby Vision. They do have HDR10+ which came with a recent software update. The POS9002 did not get updated. I thought I would get the update because 65OLED873 did, and it is the same TV, only bigger.
no HBO GO app available
Amazon Prime Video is available, but it does not have UHD and HDR.
Android TV can be laggy and unresponsive. It happens rarely and generally the interface is very fast, but people who have also used LG's web OS prefer it over Android TV
Ambilight seems like a cool feature and some people claim there are benefits to bias lightning. I still haven't played around with it much and usually leave it off.
Some reviewers state that the motion on the Philips is better than on the LG, but I am not sure if this is only when using motion "enhancements". I personally keep these disabled.
Philips (like Sony) do not offer as much controls on picture settings as LG or other brands. This does not seem to be an issue because you can get very accurate image with the provided options.
The input lag on the 9002 and maybe the other Philips models is higher than LG's. Although I do not notice any lag when playing on PS4 Pro.
And some overall positive impressions: Blu Rays, both SD and UHD HDR look amazing. Streaming is also very very nice. I am impressed with HDR shows on Netflix, I did not expect streaming to look this good. HDR gaming is also great. Cable and SD look good, I do not notice any major difference between the OLED and my old plasma. Maybe if I had them side by side, but I don't have the plasma anymore so I cannot do a direct comparison.
Also you should search on EU sites and forums for more info on the Philips OLEDs. They are not sold in the US, and most of avsforum users are based in the US.
Let me know if you have any questions on the 9002.
thanks for the great summary!
Yes the HDR situation right now seems to be you either get one or another.. You should have gotten the update, I think I read somewhere that the POS9002 got that, maybe it's just distributed slowly through each different region or something. Anyway just getting regular HDR10 will already provide a great experience, and then if the royalty-free HDR10+ gets more adoption, great!
The Amazon prime video does not show any HDR logos from what I understood (even on the LGs for example) but it might be streaming in HDR. Hopefully they improve the app sooner than later to be able to distinguish all of that. And HBO Go I don't use, so that is not a problem for me for now at least
Regarding the Androind TV performance, it seems to be the recurring topic on the Philips/Sonys that use it, and they even use the same hardware.. laggy but I hope it works well enough. I do want to ask, can you play 4k videos from the YouTube app?
I read somewhere that it was not supported due to the youtube codec or something :s Anyway I have an Nvidia Shield that handles that very well, so I could always use it for youtube xD
Also the input lag does not worry me at all because I rarely (strong rarely) game on my tv, and even if I would start to do it more (big display + hdr + ambilight? wow effect) it would not be any kind of competitive gaming... I don't know how people focus on that so much, I am sure 80% or more would not notice any difference between 35ms or 50ms of input lag while into the game. As you say you do not notice any problem!
The image quality that you mention is all thanks to Philips P5 processing chip, it got great reviews and seems to be really good for streaming content and motion
I don't know if you knew about this, but a friend website made a "blind" test last year and your POS9002 was the winner https://www.avforums.com/news/philip...shootout.14195
