Head-to-head comparison: LG 48C1 vs Philips 48OLED806

Regarding the structure, the main difference lies in the feet. The LG 48C1 opts for a fairly wide center stand with a cable management system at the rear, while the Philips 48OLED806 pleases with two ultra-thin, reversible mini stands without a cable management system. Connectivity is identical on both models with a small feature for Philips hosting a USB 3.0 port (only USB 2.0 on LG).

The other big difference lies in the operating system: webOS for the LG C1 and Android TV for the Philips OLED806. On paper, webOS is more responsive, but in practice, the new homepage for displaying content is too slow to display. webOS maintains a fast start (12 seconds vs 42 seconds for Philips), but the wake is fairly close on both systems (5 seconds for webOS and 7 seconds for Android). The catalog of apps – at least for streaming – is very similar on both platforms, with the slight advantage of Android, which is always more comprehensive.

Thanks to the built-in gyroscope, the LG C1 remote control is always more pleasant to use on a daily basis, but the Philips is very well finished and has a very touchable main backlight system. Finally, the Ambilight system is the great originality of Philips TV and clearly contributes to the “cool” effect on this model. People who have tasted it can’t probably More without it.

Philips wins by a short margin thanks to its USB 3.0 port, slightly more versatile Android TV and backlit remote control.
