Launched in the year 2022, the 55OLED807/12 is a 55" 4K TV from Philips. It comes with a True 10-bit OLED-EX panel. The max. resolution it can display is 3840 x 2160 @ 120 Hz with a pixel density of 80 ppi.
After screen size and resolution, the next important spec to look for in a display is its Color Reproduction (defined by its color gamut specification).
This TV features 99% DCI P3 color gamut coverage. FYI, this is equivalent to 135.0% sRGB coverage. The color quality on this TV should be Lifelike!
What is Color gamut ?
Color gamut specification of a TV indicates the range of colors that the display can produce.
Put Simply, this specification tells the ability of a display to produce accurate colors. A TV with low gamut coverage will miss out on some colors (such as deep red), the result would be a "washed out" picture quality.
Different manufacturers use different measurement standards to define color gamut. Such as — sRGB (most popular), NTSC 1953, DCI P3 etc.
For example, the color gamut of this TV is specified using DCI P3.
But don't worry, below is a chart that will help you choosing a TV with good color accuracy.
Now, after color gamut, the static contrast specification of a TV holds almost equal role in picture quality.
The importance of static contrast ratio
Static contrast ratio of a TV corresponds to its Black levels. A Display with low static contrast ratio (<1000:1) will not produce deep blacks. Moreover, such displays may suffer from backlight bleeds such as this:The image is an example of another display, it is not this one
Clearly this will affect your viewing experience considerably, especially in a dark room.
Also note, static contrast ratio and resolution go hand in hand when it comes to details. To put it into perspective, a TV with low contrast ratio will produce less shades of colors, so lesser detail overall.
If given a choice, always prefer a FHD TV with high contrast ratio over a 4K TV with low contrast ratio.
This TV comes with a static contrast ratio of Infinity:1. That's a plus for OLED TVs. So no need to worry about this at all.
HDR is also supported on this TV in form of HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma), HDR10, HDR10+, Dolby Vision, HDR and HDR10+ Adaptive.
Coming to brightness, the peak brightness it can achieve is 250 nits.
Now if you are planning to use your TV other than using it as a TV — say as a PC monitor or for gaming purposes, you would want to get a TV with lowest input lag. For gaming however, both input lag and response time affects the performance.
The input lag on the Philips 55OLED807/12 is 5 ms and its minimum response time is 1 ms. Gamers gonna love this TV.
What is Input lag ?
This lag is the latency at which your key-presses or mouse movements changes the content of the screen. Though, this won't matter much if you aren't into competitive/FPS games like call of duty.
Although for better experience, get a TV that comes with an input lag and response time of less than 20ms.
Dimensions and Ergonomics
The TV measures 55 inches vertically and 49 inches horizontally. It weighs approximately 17.5 kgs. So plan your space accordingly.
Now, coming to ergonomics — a VESA mount with interface size of 300 x 300 mm is provided for wall-mounting. However, there is no Tilt or Pivot support on this unit except Swivel support.
