First of all: defects can always occur, even with brand new devices. I had to experience this first hand on my Philips Hue Lily last year. Now it is the Hue White Filament lamps that cause problems for some users. I have received several emails with the same content: the lamps are flickering in some places.
If you want to use individual Philips Hue LED bulbs, up to now they were best hidden behind a lampshade or other cover. Let’s be honest: the usual Philips Hue bulbs are not really stylish. This has changed with the Philips Hue White Filament lamps that were released last week. Available in three different versions, the vintage bulb looks really great – and easily shakes off the smart competition from Osram, Ikea or Innr.
Philips Hue White Filament Lamps have been rumored for a long time, but in the end the evidence was overwhelming. So, not surprisingly, Signify has today officially announced the three already well-known filament lamps. They can be pre-ordered now and will be delivered starting next week. I will tell you what to expect – and at the end of this article you will also find a small video with detailed impressions.
