Pros:

  • Compatible with Apple HomeKit, Amazon Alexa, and Google Assistant
  • Adjustable tilt function
  • The brightness of the lamp can be adjusted to suit the surroundings
  • Decorative accent lamp that can be placed anywhere on a flat surface
  • Features a simple on/off switch

Cons:

  • Can be a little difficult to set up but once you get it, it’s seamless
  • The app can be a little difficult to use as you need to type in your Wi-Fi password
  • The bulb can get really hot if run for a long time

I find it's best to start with the biggest and then get smaller. You can't go backwards! The Hue Bloom is the biggest of the lamps, but allows for the most simultaneous colors and shades of white light to be displayed.

This lamp is able to sync to any music you're playing and can also be used for gaming thanks to the ability to adjust the lighting effects to match the on-screen action. Needless to say, there are probably more uses, but this is the lamp for them. You can also change the colors based on a particular hue, saturation level, and brightness, so you can set the mood you desire.

The speaker-shaped bulb offers ambient lighting for most areas, including living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms, sofas, and more. While we're on the subject of music, this lamp can also be used to sync to video playback, which is amazing.

This lamp includes 3 interchangeable base options: the flat, circular, or square base. The circular and square bases allow you to place it on any flat surface, such as a table, desk, or countertop.

There is a section of basic instructions on the lamp that will help you when you start using it, but you'll probably spend as much time looking at the manual on Phillips' site as you do actually using it. The manual is well worth checking out because there's a lot to this lamp.
