X1 Processor at its heart for powerful realism
With Sony’s X1 processor at its heart, this Sony 49 inch TV delivers the very best from 4K HDR images. The processor enhances all aspects of the image, including colour, contrast and clarity, to give optimised depth and realism. Working with the TRILUMINOS display, colours are natural and authentic, giving you a feeling of ‘being there’.
The smoothest images with Motionflow XR800 (100Hz)
Using a true 100Hz panel gives this Sony a faster refresh rate for smoother, more natural motion. Sony’s Motionflow XR800Hz tech enhances the natural ability of the 100Hz panel to give the smoothest, blur-free motion in its class.
HDR support, including Dolby Vision
HDR maximises picture quality, bringing detail to the darkest areas of the picture as well as making the overall image look more life-like than ever. As well as HDR10 and HLG formats, this Sony is also compatible with Dolby Vision. Dolby Vision optimises the HDR format to give quite simply the sharpest, most accurate images possible. Very much an industry standard, Dolby Vision continually adjusts the picture for the most remarkable realism.
Smart Android TV
Bringing together photos, music, movies, Internet and apps, the Sony Android system makes accessing a huge range of entertainment easy. The Android platform brings more apps than any other smart TV platform, meaning you’ve got the widest choice of smart TV possible.
Voice control your TV
Featuring Google Assistant built-in, this Sony TV effortlessly becomes part of your Google/Android home network. If you prefer to use a different platform, the Sony’s compatible, too. Apple AirPlay and Homekit compatibility makes it possible to integrate with your Apple system. Support for Amazon Alexa devices also means you can voice control via your existing Alexa device.
Sleek, Sony style
With its slim, aluminium bezel, this Sony TV looks every bit as sleek and timeless as you’d expect from a BRAVIA design. The matching legs not only provide a stable support but also compliment the design with their striking metal blade design and handy cable management built-in.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gazza6 from very pleased Didn't know where to start when looking for an upgrade on our old but still perfectly good LG LCD tv. So sought some impartial advice from Tony at the Nottingham branch and came home with a new Sony tv, which we are both very pleased with and impressed by.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HBKOZ from Back for good My LG 49" 4k tv failed after 5 years. I was used to the picture quality over time, but not completely satisfied after previously owning a Sony. I spent loads of time looking and reading specs for a new TV which in the end confused me with all the jargon. What steered me to buy this Sony TV was it is the perfect size for my room, has a 100 htz refresh rate (recommended by Andy) and a 6 year guarantee combined with Sony,s guarantee and at a reasonable price. Best thing though for me is it simply has the best picture quality straight out of the box, fabulous detail whilst viewing coupled with my Panasonic theatre sound system. Love it. Thanyou

Rated 3 out of 5 by Northern Old Bloke from Getting connected The picture is good and we now have the connections to some of the services we use, but we have a sound bar from a previous TV which we have been using with this TV, BUT sometimes there are problems getting the optical connection to work and also it would be also be good not have to use another remote to control the sound output when using a much needed sound bar.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Fraggle Rock from Why to dependant on Google I bought this a couple of months ago, the quality of picture and sound is as expected. However, the internet operations are heavily dependant on Google, tedious to use and having to open a Google account and constantly sign in to fully enjoy the TV

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sue76 from Good all rounder Really pleased with this TV. I updated from an old set and haven't regretted my decision. I now have access to everything I need all in one place. The sound quality is an improvement and screen clarity is good. I just love the apps. I can now catch up on programmes I have missed instead of having to record. Plus, I can enjoy extra apps I never had before. I chose a 49" screen which compliments my lounge and enhances my viewing. I would recommend Sony Bravia.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Nikon man from I am liking the TV more each day It is not a straight out of the box switch it on and all will be great. You have to work on all the settings to achieve the picture quality this TV is capable off. The sound is the same and to get the best one needs a sound bar

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mellifluence from Excellent TV First time purchase of a Smart TV. Has all the features (DVB-T, Freesat, Streaming etc.). Very happy so far - only downside is the lack of a centre stand, which was easily remedied.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Kennethy88 from Excellent smart tv features, good video quality I bought this 49” XH85 TV two weeks already. It has complete features, 4 HDMI inputs, support both digital TV and satellite TV (either main or main + sub). Built-in up-scaler which can offer acceptable display even playing low resolution source. The only weak point is about its speaker output, you may need a sound bar with subwoofer if bass is needed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LesBrad from Excellent picture & sound would recommend An excellent picture and straightforward to set up. Like all modern TVs a dizzying array of options particularly when setting up external devices like soundbars. Cannot listen to headphones and still have TV sound, which was available on my last TV and can be a useful option. Printed instructions are minimal with a reliance on exploring the settings & trial & error. Availability of a comprehensive manual would be useful even if this is online. Overall excellent picture and sound, although like all flat screen TVs sound is much improved with a soundbar. Despite these minor points overall I'm happy with the TV and would recommend it to others.

Rated 2 out of 5 by alexb123 from Great hardware, software is insanely poor. Netflix/apps will randomly crash. You’ll be watching a movie on Netflix and YouTube will pop open. After running the tv for a few hours is becomes slow. Software updates are few and far between. Do not buy a Song Android TV

Rated 5 out of 5 by Golden Brown from Super quality pictures! We looked at two 49" Sony TVs and decided to buy the XH85 as it was 100Hz as against 50Hz. Set up was really easy (although disappointed that UKTV Play is not available as an app). The sharpness of the picture is amazing compared to our last Sony Bravia 43" TV, bought in 2016. I used a Sony soundbar previously, but I find that the XH85 doesn't need it. Watching Wimbledon is incredible - the colour is incredible and the motion of the ball is perfect. I watched a match on my mum's LG and it wasn't a patch on the Sony. My only slight criticism is the stand (2 legs!) which is not as nice looking as the oval shaped one on our previous TV. And finally, why do all TV surrounds now have to be black? I prefer silver but Sony don't make those any more.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Willh88 from Great picture but lacks features Got this on a great deal as it was the last one in stock. Easy to set up, and the picture uality picture is far better than our previous, not smart, TV. However, we were able to set the time on our last TV, which we can't do on this one, and we miss this feature. Once you have set up i-player etc they are accessed instantly, with no delays. I would have preferred a stand instead of the feet supplied with the unit, as these get in the way of our existing sound bar.
