Honourable Mention

The Philips 50PUT6604 is a 50-inch smart UHD LED TV launched last year in the Indian market and now priced under Rs. 34,000.

Design and Build Quality

The Philips 50PUT6604 has a premium European style design where minimalism and practicality go hand in hand.

The whole body plastic construction is nothing much to brag about but the build quality feels durable enough.

The narrow side bezels and the slightly thicker chin which houses the Philips brand name gives this TV a unique aesthetic appeal, to be honest.

The two plastic stands that come with this TV have a close to ground stance, which adds further to the premium appeal.

One thing we didn’t like about this TV is the rear-mounted I/O ports that will be a little hard to access when needed the most.

The Philips 50PUT6604 has the following I/O ports onboard:

3 x HDMI ports
2 x USB ports
1 x headphone jack
1 x RJ45 LAN port

1 x RF antenna port

The colours look vibrant and the dynamic range is impressive enough to deliver a true cinematic visual experience right inside your living room.

The visuals appear very sharp and clean, thanks to the abundance of pixels on the screen.

The brightness of this panel is adequate to watch in well-lit rooms without any issues.
