Sony X850F 4K Smart TV

Last Updated on October 1, 2021 by Daniel Osakwe

In this review, we will look at the features and performance of the Sony XBR75X850F. This device has the model number X850F. The model dates back to 2018. A television like this is high-end since its price can rise to $2,000 or more. Its vivid display is the result of Direct LED backlighting. As well as supporting 4K video, Triluminos Display, HDR10, and HLG provide brilliant colors and enhanced contrast.

Additionally, it features dynamic contrast. Due to Motionflow XR technology, the display provides a 120 Hz native refresh rate that eliminates any blurring during fast-paced, dynamic scenes. A powerful X1 processor ensures excellent performance and precise scaling of video content. The TV supports the voice control feature of Amazon Alexa.

Furthermore, it works with Google Assistant and Android TV as well as Sony’s Playstation Vue. Some customers have complained that the remote controller has too many buttons close together, even though it does have all the buttons they require. The Sony XBR75X850F specifications confirm the model’s high efficiency.

Style

My favorite aspect of the Sony X850F is its design. It shares many similarities with the X850F.

It comes with a wide stand that may be used to mount a soundbar in front of it.  It also allows cable management, as it passes the cables through the legs at the back.

The TV appears somewhat thick and runs relatively cool from the side. It should not cause any problems due to its build quality.

Stand

It does not make a difference whether you have a Sony XBR60X850F stand or a Sony XBR900F stand for the TV as long as the stand supports the TV. It needs a large table to be placed on since the stand is so wide.

Remote

It comes with the same remote as the X830F. Despite the device’s large size and a number of buttons, it is easy to operate. The TV’s buttons are located in an easy-to-find place, making it easy for you to reach its most basic functions.

A voice button on the remote lets you access Google Assistant, but it must be hooked up to the TV through Bluetooth to function. Google Assistant can perform most basic TV functions, such as changing inputs, opening apps, and searching Netflix.

It is not possible to change picture settings using your voice, even though you can navigate certain menus using your voice.

Pros Cons
Deep and uniform dark scenes Mediocre HDR peak brightness
Excellent motion handling Image degrades when viewed at an angle
Supports a wide color gamut  

Conclusion

Both the home and office can benefit from it. This product handles reflection well and achieves a brightness that is enough for rooms with normal lighting. Viewers from the side will be disappointed due to the poor viewing angles, but the deep blacks enhance the excellent picture quality.
