Philips 55OLED936 Review: Perfect Philips Oled TV

The Philips 55OLED936 TV features an Ultra HD definition of 55-inch (approximately 140 cm) 10-bit 100Hz OLED EVO panel 3840 x 2160 px. This Oled Evo panel still covers 99% of the DCI-P3 color space, while still showing a higher maximum brightness than other classic Oled panels. It is seen on television LG Olet G1 And Sony A90J.

The Philips TV still has the original Amblylight ambient lighting system on all four sides and relies on Android TV. Above all this model has two 10 W speakers in its Powers & Wilkins 3.1.2 soundbar and a very sturdy 100 x 65mm membrane and base speaker (20 W), the most powerful magnet for the eye-shaped tweeter – on-top – manufacturer Powers & Wilkins Signature – 2.5 W, as well as two upward-facing 12.5 W speakers for the Dolby Atmos effect.

The Philips 55OLED936 currently sells for around 2,500. It is also available in the 65-inch version (Philips 65OLED936) for around 3,500. This model is also offered in a 48-inch (122 cm) version under the 48OLED936 Note, but it does not have the Olet Evo panel (the latter is not in the 48-inch version).

All luminosity and color measurements mentioned in this article were carried out by Spectro C6-HDR Analyzer and Software. Coleman Ultimate.

Sub-pixels of the OLED panel of Philips 55OLED936.

If the Philips 55OLED936 TV uses the Oled Evo panel, the layout of the sub-pixels will be the same. Philips 55OLED806 / 856 This year and onOLED805 Since last year. The Oled Evo LG G1 and Sony A90J TVs have different panels, but it also uses the same configuration already seen in previous years. So there are four white, blue, red and green sub-pixels. The blue and green sub-pixels are designed to look like very thin sticks, while the red sub-pixel is large, while maintaining a high peak in brightness while maintaining a color temperature close to 6500 K. Unlike other manufacturers, Philips 4 offers the same configuration. Years now. Oled technology still offers the best angles on the market, with a light loss of only 20% at 45. Apparently, there is no variation in black, the sub-pixels are turned off separately.


Filmmaker mode displays the correct image quality. With an average delta E 1.7 – below the 3 limit the eye can not distinguish color slides – the colors displayed are true to those sent by the source, especially if the delta does not exceed the delta of the E3. The temperature curve is constant over the entire spectrum and the average measured at 6370 K is very close to the video standard (6500 K). This also applies to the gamma curve with an average of 2.36, which is close to the reference 2.4, resulting in gray scales being fully reproduced. Oled technology is required, as each pixel can be turned off individually, so the variation is considered infinite, which ensures the unparalleled accuracy of blacks, very deeply.

Philips’ Perfect Picture Engine The scaling engine is even more accurate with the fifth generation Philips video processor, called the P5 AI Gen5. If cinema enthusiasts go their separate ways, image enhancement enthusiasts will succeed with the performance of this process, which converts an image from an HD or full HD source to an ultra HD image. In filmmaker mode, this process is disabled for very smooth measurements, thus avoiding artifacts. Movie enthusiasts, on the other hand, will be impressed by the performance of the P5 Perfect Natural Motion Compensation Motor. Philips is clearly at the forefront of this area and shows that it can create perfectly sharp images in motion, without forcing fluidity. The Perfect Clear Motion engine removes the blur behind moving objects and displays a picture of stunning clarity.

Old technology eliminates more glowing time, resulting in much less blur behind moving objects. The display delay is measured at 21.6 ms, which is higher than the 15 ms of OLED856. This causes more than one frame delay from the source (at 60Hz). In practice, it does not change greatly and the gap between the controller’s function and its impact on the screen remains invisible.

After some manual adjustments (color temperature on “warm” and “color enhancement off”), the Philips TV provides excellent rendering in cam mode. We see a delta E less than 3 in SDR and HDR.

The innovation in this 2021 model is obviously two HDMI 2.1 inputs (HDMI 1 and 2) compatible with 4K 120 Hz signals, ALLM (Auto Low Latency Mode) automatically reduces display delay and VRR (dynamic update rate). The Philips OLED936 is compatible with the FreeSync premium of the Xbox One S / X and Xbox Series S / X, but also compatible with the G-Sync from Nvidia for PC gaming enthusiasts.

If the frame of the Philips 55OLED956 had a more sober design, this would not be the case for the stand, which clearly distinguishes it from the competition. We particularly recognize the Powers & Wilkins signature, with the popular remote tweet in the shape of the eye.

Without the stand, the thickness of the TV is only 4.7 cm, but as always, the track in the TV stand is limited by the size of the stand. The latter requires a depth of 26.6 cm to accommodate, making it the most compact of the 55-inch TVs. The foot is 89 cm. This TV measures 160 x 40 cm and is very handy in our reference TV cabinet.

The link is distributed in two places. On the side, there are two USB ports, including two HDMI 2.0b inputs, a USB 3.0, PCMCIA (Common Interface CI +) port and a headphone output. On the back, there are two additional HDMI 2.1 inputs, optical digital audio output, Ethernet port, rack and satellite antenna connectors and a dedicated output for the speaker. The TV has DVB-T / T2 / T2-HD, DVB-S / S2 and DVB-C tuner. It also has 802.11ac Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 5.0 for connection to a wireless audio device (headphones or speaker).

Exclusive to Philips TVs, the Amplify system displays the colors of the image displayed on the screen on the back wall, but not only that. Over the years, Philips has improved by adding several methods to use it differently. The mood light can vary depending on the sound or can be integrated into the Philips Hue environment – bulbs connected from Philips – to participate in the atmosphere of the room.

The Android TV system is one of the most complete in the market and above all one that offers the most applications. The Chromecast functionality allows you to receive and display a video stream sent from a smartphone, tablet or computer.

Like all Android TVs, the first boot takes longer. Here it is 36 seconds as opposed to 10 seconds for the Tyson system provided by Samsung. Fortunately, the TV wakes up in just 7 seconds at a cost of less than a watt on the stand (if the hands-free function fails).

Philips 55OLED936 integrates a Bowers & Wilkins soundbar on foot. Philips offers two brackets for the latter: a table bracket and a wall mount, which allow the TV to be hung on the wall while keeping the sound bar down. This 3.1.2 audio system has two 10 W bandwidth speakers, one Twitter-on-top Eye-shaped – business card provided by manufacturer Powers & Wilkins – 2.5W, a 20W subwoofer and two 12.5W speakers facing upwards for the Dolby Atmos effect.

Audio rendering is excellent and clearly matches the best in the TV market. It is very efficient when listening to music with beautiful reproduction of low midrange at 60 Hz and full spectrum. Dolby Atmos rendering, on the other hand, is desirable and in this regard, Philips TV performs less than the Panasonic TX-65JZ2000, a true benchmark at this point. Despite the excellent performance – keep in mind that the audio system of these two TVs is behind the rendering provided by the exclusive soundbars. Sony HT-ZF9 Or The Samsung HW-Q900T.
