PHILIPS 50PUT8215: DISPLAY PANEL AND PICTURE QUALITY
Kicking things off with the foremost important – the Philips 50PUT8215 has an IPS panel. The display features a 4K resolution with support for HDR 10, Dolby Vision, and Dolby Atmos. The panel features a peak brightness of 400 nits, and therefore the TV runs on the Android TV UI. The panel’s performance is extremely good for consuming both HDR and SDR content, and therefore the content is clearly visible even during a brightly lit room. The TV covers 85% of the BT 2020 color space giving it good colors overall for all kinds of content, barring a couple of exceptions, which we’ll discuss intimately below.
PHILIPS 50PUT8215: FHD AND SDR PERFORMANCE
The SDR performance of this TV is extremely good. Spider-Man Homecoming on Netflix is in SDR and therefore the web slingers suit looks the proper quite lush blue and red. The sequence where he’s scaling the Washington Monument is during a well-lit environment and there are tons of primary colors at play here – Red, Green, and Blue. you furthermore may have some Yellow thrown into the combination and these colors look quite lush. once more, we left the TV in Vivid but if you’re turning the lights down for a theatre feel, you’ll also select the Movie preset for such content.
The same is that the case for Young Sheldon and mission on Prime Video and Netflix. In mission rogue state, the motorcycle chase sequence, we’ve seen the background desert look slightly muted on some TVs, but here it had been bright without getting burnt. Again, here the Vivid preset preserved the natural-looking skin tones ensuring only those colors that require to enter a given sequence.
Needless to mention, if your primary use case is consuming content from OTT services or a set-top box, this TV should do exactly fine.
PHILIPS 50PUT8215: GAMING PERFORMANCE
But when it involves gaming performance, the TV may be an assortment. For gaming, all the post-processing must be transitioned in order that the content is often displayed as intended by the console. that may not always the case on this TV. there’s an HDR Game Mode on this TV and it works for 4 out of 5 games we played. In Spider-Man Miles Morales, the sport had a rather cooler tone as compared to other TVs we’ve tested. Now granted, if you do not know what you’re trying to find you will not notice this. the remainder of the sport looks good with Spider-Man’s outfit looking crisp. Dirt 5 is another game that looked good overall after we bumped up the HDR brightness a touch from the in-game setting.
The one game which showed us slightly overexposed greens was God of War. the sport has some beautiful environments and a few very punchy colors. While Kratos and his armor looked fine then do the trees and other environmental aspects, the green foliage just looks too overexposed. It’s possible that this is often a drag only with God of War as once we booted Ghost of Tsushima, riding our horse and navigating the tall green grass was a pleasing experience, visually.
Overall, the Philips 50PUT8215 may be an excellent TV for consuming content from OTT and other platforms, except for gaming, you would like to manually jump into the settings to urge the specified output.
PHILIPS 50PUT8215: REMOTE CONTROL
We sleep in an age where the planning of remote controls is minimal. Devices just like the Fire TV Stick (review) and therefore the Mi TVs accompany minimal designed remote controls. The Philips 50PUT8215 features a traditional remote. While the remote features a simple design, its ergonomics aren’t to my liking. I even have a habit of holding the remote from rock bottom third and all-important buttons just like the Assistant, OTT hotkeys, directional buttons and settings are within the top third. This makes me move my hand around the remote quite a bit. The one remote that features a mixture of traditional and modern controls is that the LG Magic Remote and that I think they’ve nailed the button placement. On the Philips 50PUT8215 the quantity, playback, and residential are easily reachable, I wish the highest third was replaced with the amount pad making it easier on behalf of me to navigate the TV. the planning of the remote is some things personal, so this might be a design that’ll appeal to you more. The remote also houses the mic and a fanatical Google Assistant button.
