Sony 65X8500F has a very good picture
quality thanks to the 4k resolution. The HDR (High Dynamic Range)
provides colorful images which is very important when playing games or
watching colorful content. However, we have bad news for the movie
lovers because this TV doesn’t have local dimming. The lack of local
dimming means that the black color depth and uniformity are not so good
and that makes the movie watching experience less enjoyable. But at
least has frame dimming technology which somehow compensates a little
the lack of local dimming tech. The colors look good too thanks to the
live color technology and triluminos display. So if you planning to
watch mostly HDR content and sacrifice the lack of deep black colors
this TV might be the right TV for you. We will give 4.2/5 points for the
Sony 65X8500F review part of the picture quality.
KD-65X8500F is a smart TV so you can connect it to the internet and
browse online content. The connection can be established through the
integrated wireless module or through the Ethernet port. The Opera
browser is light which makes it a reasonable choice for TV
implementation. Also this TV has the Android OS which had always been a
strong part of Sony TVs. Android OS has more features than any other OS,
plus it has the Google play store where you can find many useful apps.
The 16GB on-board storage is sufficient unless you plan to store many
movies in it. Anyway, you can share your smartphone’s screen easily with
the TV through the Miracast technology or Chromecast . We will give 5/5
points for the Sony 65X8500F review part of the features.
KD-65X8500E has two built-in speakers with 10W power each. The total
output power of 20W is usually enough, unless you are standing too far
from the TV. If this is the case you should consider buying external
speakers that will turn your room into a home theater. If you are
planning to buy external speakers you can also take advantage of the
surround sound mode.The sound is clear thanks to the Audio Clear+
technology, but that depends on the content quality. We will give 4/5
points for the Sony 65X8500F review part of the sound.
Sony 65X8500F has a very good design. The color looks very good and will
adapt to whatever color your room has. It has a narrow frame, which is a
very desirable design feature nowadays. Also the stander looks good and
it is not exaggerated. One other good design feature is the cable
management so there will be no more ugly cables around the TV. We will
give 4.5/5 points for the Sony 65X8500F review part of the design.
