Smart functionality is solid. While Philips uses the Android TV OS for its high-falutin’ OLEDs, screens lower down the ladder get Saphi, its own Linux-based operating system.

Streaming apps include YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Rakuten.TV and Chili.

The Netflix app supports Dolby Vision, while YouTube can play in 4K.”
