Sony 55X8505 tilbyder mange gode funktioner til en overkommelig pris. Dets store styrke er den gode opskalering, der sikrer, at selv middelmådigt HD-materiale ser rigtig godt ud i stort format....

Outstanding 4K clarity, great HD upscaling, integrated YouView platform with rollback catchup TV on the way
Great contrast
Good colours
Super scaling of lower definition content, Android offers lots of choice
HDMI 2.0a coming
Average audio, Android Smart TV platform is a chore, no HDR support
Some poor UI design choices
Unusable dimming system
Occasional system crashes
Needs stronger contrast, Android TV needs work
