Question Help: Mid-range big screen choice between Philips c vs LG 75UN85006LA


Novice Member
Hi everyone, I am looking for help on my next TV choice: my current budget lands below 1000€ and for me initially Bigger is Better. So in my price range I'm having doubts between the Philips 70PUS8555 and the LG 75UN85006LA. I mostly consume streaming content at night (Netflix, HBO, Amazon Prime, Disney + but also IPTV for sports events) and my child has a PS4 (though a PS5 may come some time soon, so HDMI 2.1 could be worth?). I know the issues with HDR on the Philips and the lack of contrast on the LG. As I said, 75" for the extra 100€ (they are currently priced at 899 -Ph- and 999€ -LG-) sounds reasonable but I wonder if adding ambilight to the whole experience will fill that 5" gap... I'm also open to any alternative under 1000€?

Thanks a lot in advance for your help.
