Yesterday, while window shopping for a replacement to my ageing LCD TV, i went hopping to different appliance stores in all malls in Fairview. My last stop was SM Appliances. While looking at the display of a Toshiba 55" UHD Smart TV, a sales rep of Skyworth approached me and offered a Skyworth 55G6 UHD smart TV for only Php 22,995. I asked the sales rep why it is priced so low, he said that it's actually a thanksgiving sale of Skyworth for its 30th year anniversary. Accordingly, it looks and has same specs of the Toshiba UHD TV i was looking at that time. At first, i didn't bite but take a look first in the internet, and these are what i found:

https://www.toshiba.co.jp/about/press/2015_12/pr2102.htm

After reading the reviews, i went back to SM Appliance Store to buy one but the stocks were all gone in two hours. Fortunately, there will be 10 brandnew units arriving this week so i reserved one.

Palagay ko cash or CC straight purchase lang ito. If ever installment eh baka regular interest so more or less around 4K din siguro ang madagdag sa 12 month installment. I might be wrong though. Pero mura pa rin sa 27K payable in 12 months, just my opinion lang po. Makapunta rin nga sa SM Appliances mamaya.

Good find! Kahit maubusan ka, 25k lang naman listed price sa Abensons Online. So baka less pa kung cash sa Abensons branch.

It's also Php 25K now at SM Appliances. It's good that I already ordered when it was selling for Php 23K. Took home my new TV last night.

Will review later.



EDIT:

There are 20 units left (as of 2pm), 30 arrived at 1pm and 10 were snatched immediately. Call ahead if you're aiming to get one.

Here's my initial observation with my 55G6. The included manual out of the box is useless, no enough info on how to set the tv correctly. There's an on-screen/buil-in manual but just the same, not enough info. However, the menu is easy to navigate hence setting the TV is not a problem. After setting the date and time, the language, the audio, video (i initially set at sports), the hdmi, i logged in to google. Internet browsing is acceptable, medyo mabilis naman (dahil siguro naka converge ako). On Netflix, i tried HD program, the display is clear but i don't think it is upscaled enough to 4K level. However 4K program is great. I tried HDR program but unfortunately, it seems has no support for such, only sound is outputted but no video. As to the digital tuner, i think you need to have a very good antennae to get good program. The built-in sound bar is good (malakas naman at di tunog lata) but you need to have a subwoofer to mimic cinima listening. This is just my initial take, i will still have to calibrate the settings further.

Question po sa owners. Can the 55G6 TV hardware stream via Kodi and NBA apps without lags?

Yung Haier smart TV ko is useless with these 2 apps. YouTube and Netflix are streaming ok. Pero di kaya nang unit Kodi (playing movies from NAS) and NBA league pass ko. Lakas pa mag lag. Hardwired LAN na yun.

Had a really bad problem with some backlight bleeding. It was so bad that it looked more like the flashlight effect than backlight bleeding.

I tried loosening the screws at the back of the tv, thinking that the panel could be being warped somehow. And it fixed it. Blacks are much more even now. It's not as good as a  plasma, but I'm very satisfied with the results.

First photo is the before, second photo is post screw-loosening. Photos taken with an S8+.

Di na ako nakatiis, picked a unit up from SM Appliance Megamall.

NBA has occasional stuttering, but acceptable. Similar performance with a Mi Box 3.

Kodi 17.6 ran a test movie from my NAS without issues.

Will test Chromecast feature this week.

Overall, I'm very happy with what I'm seeing, so far.

Random stuff about Android TV on the 55 G6

  • As soon as you connect it to the internet, it will update to the latest version of Android TV (Android 8.0 Oreo)
  • The wifi card on the TV is of the older variety (802.11g), you won't be able to do 4k properly on YouTube or Netflix with it, so it's best to get something like the Xiaomi Mi Box.
  • Netflix network test on it at my house is about 10 Mbps.  I get nearly 100 Mbps on my Mi Box.
  • Netflix titles will show "HDR" and "Ultra HD 4K" but it will probably run in 1080p only.
  • The native YouTube app will run 1440p seamlessly (QHD). In fact, QHD looks good on it.
  • VLC is a better media player than the built-in one and supports .ts files no problem (Kodi seems to balk at running .mts and .ts files for some strange reason).
  • Use the Android remote for Android TV as it is far superior to the tv remote.
  • The USB port on the TV is USB 3.0 but you will need to run the files using the media player that came with it. I suggest using VLC instead.
  • You will need a bluetooth controller to play games on the tv.
  • The TV has about 12 GB of usable space so choose wisely on which games to install!
  • Chromecast works as advertised
  • Google Assistant is amazing!

Apps I've installed so far:

  • Haystack TV
  • Al-Jazeera
  • NBC News
  • Twitch
  • VLC
  • Kodi
  • ESPN
  • Steam
  • Netflix
  • ES File Explorer
  • RedBull TV
  • Spotify
  • Accuweather
  • Realm Defense

Hello everyone! This is my first time posting here.

Anyway, I've bought one for myself a week ago after seeing someone demoing the unit while I was window shopping 2 weeks ago. The unit I got was the demo unit in SM since that was the only stock they got when I was there. So far I am contented with everything except for one thing, the Wi-Fi connection. It seems at some times, the unit isn't able to scan our Wi-Fi connection even if it is already registered in the TV. I have to restart our router everytime this issue happens. Anyone else experiencing this problem? Or is this just normal? I need to know so I can have my unit replaced if this is a defect. TIA!

There are many reasons for intermittent wifi connections (literally dozens of possible issues).  I suggest you go to google and search out a good article on checking your wifi connection.

Actually, I've already tried multiple things just to diagnose the problem but I haven't found any answers.

Weird thing is all our devices at home can connect to the network with no issues except for the TV. Anyway, the issue has been minimal as of late but still there are instances where the TV would suddenly disconnect and can't find the network.

I've been using Vivid as the base setting then playing around with the individual components (brightness, saturation, etc).  I find the other pre-defined settings (Cinema, in particular) too dark for the living room (where the tv is at).  When viewing HDR content, I typically find the need to put the tv on high brightness mode.
