In addition to the usual, adjustable Ambilight function that awaits you on three sides of the rear panel of “The One”, this model scores with a special Aurora feature that immerses your room in an individual ambience including background noise. To complement this setup, you have the option of using Philips Hue lights. You also get DTSMulti-channel-sound-system (Surround Sound) competing with Dolby Digital Play-Fi for wireless surround sound and multi-room.
Using the so-called Mimi Sound, you can adjust the tone to your hearing sensitivity. This is particularly handy for people with hearing impairments. On the other hand, Q-Symphony gives you the option to match the sound of the Q70B with a compatible soundbar. Unfortunately, the menu layout is a bit convoluted and therefore not as intuitive as in other operating systems.
The Tizen OS from the Q70B is quite tidy, easy to use and fluid to navigate through. An extensive app selection and the usual voice assistants from Amazon and Google are part of both devices. However, you will not see Apple Play on the Philips. This feature is only offered by the Samsung.
