Sony XH8096PBAEP belonging to the Bravia series , is a very interesting product, made in 2020 by the Japanese multinational. These are five smart TVs that share the same technologies and functions, except for the panel size . This last factor, as you well know, greatly affects the final price of the television. That’s why the 75-inch Sony costs almost € 2,000, while the 43-inch € 620.
Here are the main features of the Sony XH8096 smart TV:
- Screen technology: LED
- Screen Resolution: UHD 4K
- HDR: Yes
- Operating system: Android
- Internet and Wifi: Yes
- USB ports: 2
- HDMI ports: 4
Before going into the details we would like to say a few words about the Narrow Bezel design , characterized by a very thin panel and ultra-slim bezels. The viewing space, in other words, turns out to be very large regardless of the size of the screen. And this, given the high visual quality , is a very important aspect.
The UHD 4K resolution is combined with Dolby Vision technology , an HDR solution capable of optimizing the contrast and sharpness levels of each content. Blacks appear dark and deep, while whites, as well as the color range, lively and bright. In this regard, it is worth mentioning the Triluminos function , which, by exploiting the power of the X1 Processor , is able to expand the chromatic spectrum making it more realistic and precise.
The Motionflow XR function , on the other hand, takes care of making scenes rich in motion extremely fluid and natural, eliminating any sort of delay, wake or blur. The Sony Bravia, in fact, are very popular with gaming lovers, who often buy them to entertain themselves with PlayStation and other consoles.
As for the audio we say that we are satisfied on average. The Dolby Atmos sound system certainly gives great emotions, but Sony could have bet on a few more watts of power, especially for larger panels. Instead, the 75-inch has the same sound power as the 43-inch, which is 10 watts of output from two full-range speakers .
On the other hand, we really liked the Clear Phase technology , which analyzes and compensates for the inaccuracies of the speakers. In this way, the audio output is really very clear, pure and crystal clear, regardless of the content being broadcast. However, the aspect that excited us most of this Sony XH8096PBAEP is certainly the smart section.
The Android operating system is complete and intuitive, with a simple navigation interface. At the Google Play Store you can download all the apps you want: these smart TVs guarantee coverage of up to 5,000 applications , the maximum available on the market today. When it comes to controlling your TV you have multiple options to choose from:
- Google Assistant (integrated)
- Google Home (to be purchased separately)
- Alexa (to be purchased separately)
In short, the remote control almost looks like an accessory for these Sony smart TVs. However, its convenience lies in the ability to control any other device connected to the television , so that you do not have to have additional remote controls. As for the transmission of content from the smartphone to the TV, just use Chromecast .
What if your devices are signed by Apple? No problem. Thanks to the Apple AirPlay function you can share your files from your smartphone, tablet or PC to your home screen in a few moments. In conclusion? For us it is a product of excellence .
