Can't speak to the Philips brand, but I'm having a horrible experience with my TCL Android TV from this past Black Friday. Everything is just super laggy, Chromecast rarely works as expected, and commands given through Google Home are hit or miss. Android TV just seems half-baked compared to Roku.

Actually, Android TV is a decent TV OS "BUT" it requires a fairly decent processor.
Newer upper-tier TVs fare well with it.
It is best experienced thru something with a powerful processor. eg......the Nvidia Shield or any external Android box.

I don't know why anyone would use but in smart tv features. I've never seen one that worked well and you can buy an actual roku or chromecast for $12-50 and they're actually updated frequently and work great.

I had a bad experience with the 75" hisense too, maybe it's worth it to spend a bit more...or maybe we just got unlucky...

So is the best thing to do is not allow the tv to connect to WiFi and skip setup, then just use your hdmi inputs to stream off firestick and whatnot? What about updating software on the tv, is that not needed if you just use your streaming device?

Def trying this way next time!

I suspect you're right; I too have heard great things about the Shield. I can only compare my low-end Android TV to several low-end Roku TVs that I have (Hisense, onn, TCL, Westinghouse), and the Roku models are all snappy and virtually bug-free, while the Android model is just painful to use.

Roku requires certain specs across the board for all Roku TVs. Unfortunately, just like Android phones and tablets, Google allows a lot of tiered specs...

The equivalent Philips 75" Roku TV model is sold at Sam's Club for $729 with free shipping for Sam's Plus members.

https://www.samsclub.com/p/philip..._product_9

I have the Magnavox 65" Roku $429, now comes with 3 yr warranty included from Sam's since April and it's the best budget TV I've bought yet. My previous go to brand was Insignia non-smart TVs.

Both the Philips and Magnavox brands have been licensed to Funai since around 2008 in North American markets.

The shield is extremely snappy! I Wonder when TV's will have shield performance (or better) for Android TV (Or Google TV...its successor).

As others have pointed out, budget Android TV's are not the way to go. For example, the TCL Android set is riddled with complaints, compared to the Roku version, which is a top choice at its price point.

Also, these are not the same "Philips" branded TV's many may remember. The name is licensed by Funai and the sets are much cheaper and reviews generally aren't good.

Even if you're on a tight budget, spend a little more and get a Roku version or settle for something smaller than 75" with better specs and quality. It's not worth the compromise

I just returned a TCL tv the other day, the picture was too dark, even on the highest brightness setting.

I always buy cheap TVs. dumb ones, add a fire stick and a chromecast and a sound bar and now it's top notch. Don't give rats of 4k tv as all my services broadcast 1080p. What's The point. I buy two 75 TVs while my buddy buys one $3500 tv Sony only to burn the screen 2 years later. Replace screen is 1500! Lol I'm happy with lower end and replace them 3+ years for bigger till I get to 100"
