Whew! Another new Hue bulb. Philips refreshed almost the entire Hue lineup heading into the holiday season and their standard Hue bulb is no different.

This is their standard color bulb that comes with the starter kit or all by its lonesome. The new version is a bit brighter, lighter, and has more accurate color representation, though some still look a bit washed out.


  • 30% brighter
  • Better colors
  • 10% lighter


  • Still expensive
