To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I was just upgrading from the 1st Gen Bridge to the 2nd Gen. The blubs that came with the new Bridge were the 3rd Gen and I really like that they are much brighter and more true to the color it suppose to be. Particularly the green is green now and the blue is actually blue. I have some other smart white and color ambient bulbs around the house but Philips Hue bulbs are by far the best in term of its quality. I mean my 1st Gen Bridge and Bulbs are still working without a single problem since I first bought it almost 8 years ago. Connectivity is a breeze and the app is just fantastic.
I just wish somehow that Philips would make their line of Hue products more affordable so that we could opt for Philips Hue entirely rather than mixing it all up.
I had also recently replace my old Philips HD TV to Philips 4K Smart TV with Ambilight running on Android. It had to be the best decision I had made yet. Could not be happier with Philips Products.
Quite pricey compared to other brands’ smart lighting although it comes with a few years warranty and guaranteed good product quality with Philips. I had lots of fun playing with the lights in our room and decided to buy more for the living room and dinning hall. Lighting really sets the mood and gives that certain feeling. You can also add into your Google Home however the voice commands are limited. I just started adding voice prompts to Siri and find it much better compared to Google Assistant coz you can ask for specific lighting scenes. Google is just on/off and dim. If you’re considering to upgrade your place to a smart home (IOT) you can consider starting with the lighting and choose Philips Hue.
