There's no smart OS and no HDMI 2.1 – just the two standard HDMI ports. It comes in three sizes: 24-, 32- and 43-inches. The new generation of the P5 processor extends its AI-based content classification feature with a new Auto Film mode, and there’s also a new Ambient Intelligence features that applies sophisticated machine learning techniques to adjusting various aspects of the picture in response to ambient light conditions. Subtitles and audio description information displayed on electronic programme guide more info panel The 6707 only comes in one size: 39 inches. There's no Ambilight system and smarts are provided by Android TV 10 rather than Android TV 11. Still, this could be a good option for a guest room or an office... if the price is right.

The OLED807 retains Philips’ long-running reputation for sharpness, too. Its pictures look emphatically 4K with the set’s Ultra Resolution feature in play – and this feature now seems to cause no significant unwanted side effects, so we see no reason not to use it (we recommended avoiding it in the past). The OLED807’s extra brightness also brings out more shadow detail in dark areas than we got with the OLED806, and HD sources are upscaled with more sharpness and detail than you get from most rivals. The set’s mid-range is wide and dynamic enough to deliver even dense action scenes with authority and conviction, easily avoiding the thin, hemmed in feel you get with big movie moments on so many TVs. The power and dynamic range that delivers this impressive mid-range performance also contributes to excellent detailing; a nicely projected sound stage that seems to exist well beyond the edges of the screen; and convincing, clear vocals. Quite intuitive is not, in all fairness, the first phrase that springs to mind when considering the 807’s set-up menus. Not for the first time, and almost certainly not for the last, Philips has presented the end user with an awful lot of command and set-up options with this TV – and until you’ve investigated every single one of them, you won’t know if they’re essential (or even worthwhile) or not. Switching to some less friendly content doesn’t faze the 55OLED807, either. It’s a very adept upscaler of 1080p content, and even if you decide to put some properly vintage 720p stuff on it retains most of its composure. Detail levels fall away, of course, and there’s a mild-but-definite coarsening over every aspect of imaging-making – but edges stay commendably consistent and on-screen motion remains (mostly) believable.This helps the 55OLED807 maintain Philips reputation for fearsome sharpness and clarity with both 4K and upscaled HD sources. It seems too, though, that Philips' processing has got cleverer at enhancing sharpness without exaggerating source noise or looking forced. Its Pure Cinema or Movie motion settings also now provide great options for gently reducing judder with 24 frames a second sources without the picture starting to suffer with the over-smooth soap opera effect or distracting processing side effects.

The 6th Gen P5 AI also allows users to toggle between Eye Care, Dark Detail Optimization or Colour Temperature Optimization modes. The company's 2022 OLED TVs also get a new version of AI Auto Film Mode, which provides seven smart picture modes including Filmmaker Mode. The Philips OLED807 has a similar minimalist design to most of the other OLED TVs on the market, with an ultra-thin metal bezel and a panel that’s millimetres deep at the top, before widening out further down where the electronics, speakers and connections are housed. Since this is a Philips TV, this deeper rear section also includes LEDs for the Ambilight system – more on that later. The OLED807’s smart features are provided by Android TV - the 11th generation of Android TV to be precise. This version of Android TV is far superior to any previous version in its presentation, stability and features, displaying a much greater understanding of how to deliver an interface that’s suited to TVs rather than personal smart devices. It’s still a little dictatorial and low on customisation options, but at least it no longer feels like it was designed to actively put you off using it.The Philips OLED807 certainly has a lot of competition this year - but we’d say it has more than enough unique qualities to stand out from the crowd. First off, the TV's Eco mode features and new Ambient AI features - at least the Eye Care and Dark Scene Optimisation elements - are best turned off. Even though, tediously, this has to be done separately for each picture preset. The problem is that these features can lead to some heavy handed reduction in the subtle detailing you can see in dark parts of the picture, sometimes leaving such areas feeling unnaturally hollow and empty. Philips (like almost every TV brand, to be fair) understands what we consumers want from the design of their nice new television: screen, and plenty of it. So the OLED807 features four winningly narrow bezels, the brevity of which are only emphasised by the hefty, shiny T-bar stand the screen rests on. There’s a good amount of swivel available from the stand, too, so little changes of orientation no longer require lifting the whole device up.

The 24-inch 5537 is similar to the 6706 (above), except that it's not 'smart'. It does have a built-in digital tuner, though, plus a couple of standard HDMI ports.

OLED EX (anacronymof 'Evolution' and 'eXperience') uses deuterium gas and proprietary algorithm-based ‘EX Technology’ to boost brightness by predicting the usage amount of each individual diode based on your viewing habits. This apparently enables the screen to 'more accurately express the details and colours of the video content being played'. The biggest step up comes from its brightness. We measured a decently sustained peak light output of nearly 870 nits on a white HDR window covering 10% of the 55-inch OLED807’s screen, which is around 100 nits up on the peak light output of the OLED806. This amounts to an almost 15% increase that can be keenly felt in both small bright highlights and full-screen brightness when watching HDR sources. Inevitably the 55OLED907’s rear has to accommodate a more substantial section containing connections, processing, speakers and the Ambilight LEDs over the central portion of its bottom half, but you need to be looking at the TV from a pretty severe angle before this bulkier bit becomes visible past the ultra-skinny edges. The OLED807 is Philips' top dog for 2022 (so far). It features an OLED EX display that promises 30% more brightness compared to a standard OLED, not to mention the firm's top picture performance and gaming features. You can think of the 8507 as a 'lite' version of The One (above). It offers a similar spec but makes do with a 60Hz display, so it may not be the best choice for keen gamers. Elsewhere, picture processing drops to the Pixel Precise Ultra HD, which has 25% less power than the 5th Gen P5.
