Would you swap a Hisense ROKU TV for a Philips 48OLED806?

I currently have a 50" Hisense ROKU R50B7120U which has been fine as a temporary TV and now looking at upgrading to the Philips 48OLED806.

Content is Netflix, Amazon Prime, Freeview HD & SD, catch up services (iPlayer, 4OD etc) and 4K Blue Ray movies.

Appreciate the screen goes to 48" from the Hisense 50" but to be honest i would prefer the smaller size in the corner of the room.

The Philips seems to get some good reviews.

What do you think is it a worthy upgrade?

I am biased, because I own a LG-CX, so I would comment YES.
and yes I did loads of research comparing the two, but the final nail was seeing the LG OLED in person

Is the LG OLED48C14LB worth it over the Phillips (£100 more)?
They are TVs for people with different priorities really. The C1 would be a better choice if you do some gaming too.

Decision made. Visited Richer Sounds and compared both.
I don't do gaming.
Both cracking TV's.
Preferred the Philips OS over LG's.
Found the buttons on the LG remote too small and didnt like the layout or feel.
Aesthetically i preferred the Philips feet over LG's curved base.
The Philips Ambilight was a nice feature, not at all a gimmick.

So collecting the Philips tomorrow 👍
