Sony’s powerful new heart – Cognitive Processor XR
Taking picture and sound processing to the next level, Sony’s Cognitive Processor XR marries AI to cognitive intelligence for a picture balance that’s best suited to humans rather than just algorithms. The processor analyses every element of the picture to give a sharper image with greater depth and realism. The processor also enhances lower resolution images, giving you smoother, more natural pictures from sources such as terrestrial TV.
Full array LED backlighting with XR Triluminos Pro and XR Contrast Booster 5
The Sony BRAVIA XR-50X90JU uses a full-array LED backlight for bright and even backlighting. XR Triluminos Pro combines with XR Colour to deliver the truest and most natural colour. For enhanced levels of contrast and detail, XR Contrast Booster 5 adjusts the brightness to give brighter peaks and more detail within darker areas.
The smoothest images with XR Motion Clarity and 4K XR Smoothing
XR Motion Clarity uses Sony’s XR advantage to its full benefit. By controlling the backlighting with greater precision this Sony 50 inch TV offers enhanced realism, especially with fast-moving sports and action movies. 4K XR Smoothing reduces picture banding, giving a more lifelike and natural flow to images.
Picture quality as the creator intended – NCM, IMAX Enhanced, Dolby Vision and Calman Ready
Compatible with a wide range of technologies, the XR-50X90JU reproduces visuals, just as the creator intended. Used with IMAX certified 4K HDR content, IMAX Enhanced uses their proprietary digital remastering technology (DMR) to deliver ultra-vivid images. If you’re a movie fan, you’ll love NCM (Netflix Calibrated Mode). NCM bypasses many of the TV’s processors, giving you a picture that’s much closer to how the filmmaker intended. Calman Ready, this TV is also ideal for those who wish to calibrate their TV to truly professional levels.
XR Sound Position with 3D Surround Upscaling for enveloping sound
Part of the Cognitive Processor XR, XR Sound Positioning works to sync the sound to the correct part of the image, as accurately as possible. XR Surround with 3D Surround Upscaling takes a regular audio signal and creates a virtual surround sound effect – making you feel more immersed in the action.
Acoustic Multi-Audio for dynamic sound
Sony’s unique Acoustic Multi-Audio speaker system enhances the sync between what you see and what you hear. Frame speakers pinpoint the sound to the action, heightening the sense of connection and realism. Front-facing subwoofers enhance the bass, giving you the powerful sound that action movies and big-scale soundtracks deserve.
New Google TV
Using Google’s world-class interface, Google TV makes accessing this Sony TV’s smart features a breeze. Customise your home screen with the apps you use the most, enjoy recommendations, curate your movie nights and even add to your watchlist via your smartphone – Google TV makes sense of Smart TV. You can also access the Sony’s picture, sound and other TV settings – keeping all you need under one ‘roof’.

Voice control your TV
Featuring Google Assistant built-in, this Sony TV effortlessly becomes part of your Google/Android home network. The Voice Remote lets you search in an easy, natural way. If you prefer to use a different platform, the Sony is 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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Waldimar21 from Great features but a bit disappointed I have returned a TCL 725k tv due to a bad colour enhanced. I was a sony lover due to their colour, but the brightnes and sharpness is at the same standard as the tcl one. So overall I am not extremely happy about the purchase as I thought the picture quality would be better..

Rated 4 out of 5 by Hsr2 from Android interface Love tv picture and ability to adapt. Few features missing though from using my Panasonic for years. Now sure I like youview. It’s only plays back via limited streaming apps on limited channels. Hard drive on Panasonic allowed you to pause all Love tv and then restart say if someone came to door or you get phone call. Panasonic has phone app that you can use Sony you have to purchase 3rd party . You could also on Panasonic media app program and record set up remotely over internet and access the hard drive over internet programs that you have recorded. Can’t find anything like that on Sony. So I all good tv good pictures youview responds slow like it’s using a really like slow processor.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Krog360 from Overall, a great TV. First off, this TV is excellent. The picture quality is amazing...... especially with 4K HDR content. Straight out of the box, it requires no adjustment or tweaking. The image quality is nothing short of amazing. The smart features of the TV are also very well implemented and slick to use. Sadly though, in my opinion, I've deducted one star from my review for the sound quality of the TV. It is just not up to the job and let's the overall package down. To be fair, the TV has the ability to tweak the sound output but nothing seems to make that much difference and watching a boombastic movie is somewhat diminished by the poor audio output. The good news is that adding a decent soundbar (with sub) makes a world of difference and allows you to enjoy the display AND sound together.
