What is the Philips 934?
The Philips OLED+ 934 is a mid-range 4K TV with support for high dynamic range and Dolby Atmos. The TV has an attractive European design, with an excellent level of fit and finish. Philips has taken an agnostic approach to high dynamic range with support for HDR10, HLG, HDR10+ and Dolby Vision. The 934 includes the 3rd gen P5 picture processing engine, runs the latest version of the Android operating system and includes 3-sided Ambilight. The Bowers & Wilkins sound system is based around a separate speaker that uses a 2.1.2-channel layout with upward-firing drivers.

The 934 will be available in early October and comes in two screen sizes: the 55-inch 55OLED934 at £2,200, and the 65-inch 65OLED934 at £3,000.

The Philips 934 delivers great-looking images, although that's based on watching carefully chosen demo footage on a show floor, rather than based on any critical viewing under controlled circumstances. However, the 934 certainly demonstrated all the main attributes of an OLED TV, with lovely colours, inky blacks, and dynamic contrast. The 3rd gen P5 processing delivers excellent noise reduction, upscaling, and motion handling, while pulling more detail from SDR and, thanks to superior tone mapping, HDR content.

Philips has wisely decided to take an agnostic approach to high dynamic range, which means the 934 supports HDR10 (just like any other HDR TV), Hybrid Log-Gamma (HLG), HDR10+ and Dolby Vision. The inclusion of the latter two means users will be able to enjoy the benefits of both dynamic metadata formats. This approach will give the 934 an edge over much of the competition because most manufacturers (apart from Panasonic) support one format or the other.

The Philips OLED+ 934 is an excellent mid-range 4K TV that boasts an attractive design, an impressive array of features and a bespoke 2.1.2-channel sound solution that supports Dolby Atmos. The picture quality is exceptional thanks to the inclusion of the 3rd gen P5 processor, and this TV supports every version of high dynamic range including HDR10+ and Dolby Vision.

The 934 sports the latest version of the Android OS with built-in Google Assistant, although it also works with Amazon Alexa. You even get 3-sided Ambilight, Philips's nifty dual-sided remote control, and a B&W speaker, making this a TV that looks good and sounds better. The 934 has been priced to compete against the likes of LG's E9 and Panasonic's GZ1500, and it's more than capable of holding its own against both.
