As for the chassis, the main difference is in the feet. The LG 48C1 opts for a wide central stand with a cable management system at the back, while the Philips 48OLED806 is content with two smaller, ultra-slim and reversible stands without a cable management system. Connectivity is the same on both models, with a slight advantage to the Philips hosting a USB 3.0 port (only USB 2.0 on the LG).
The other big difference is in the operating system: webOS for the LG C1 and Android TV for the Philips OLED806. On paper, webOS is very responsive, but in practice, the new content-view homepage is very slow to display. webOS maintains a quicker first boot (12 seconds vs. 42 seconds for Philips), but wake-up time is much closer on both systems (5s for webOS and 7 seconds for Android). The list of apps — at least for streaming — is pretty similar on both platforms, with a slight advantage for Android, which is always more complete.
With its integrated gyroscope, the LG C1 remote control is more pleasant to use on a day-to-day basis, but the Philips is much better finished and has a more appreciable key backlight system. Finally, the Ambilight system is a big original of Philips TV and clearly contributes to the “wow” effect in this model. Those who have tasted it cannot A pioneer More without it.
The Philips narrowly wins with its USB 3.0 port, a slightly more versatile Android TV, and its backlit remote control.
