Features

It’s that time! It’s the part of the review where we get to look over all the features that make up this TV. Let’s begin so you can get a better idea of what’s waiting for you if you decide to purchase this model.

X-Reality Pro

This technology enhances the image and promises a very sharp picture. It is based on noise-canceling technology and the end result is a very clear and detailed picture.

Smart TV

This Sony product is a Smart TV, which means that it comes with more or less all the functionalities you would find on a tablet or smartphone. You can access the internet via the web browser, and you can use integrated and downloadable apps to smoothen your experience and tailor it to your needs. You can download more apps from the app store and round up your library.

Motionflow XR240

This feature ensures that movies or shows with fast action sequences won’t be blurry or out of focus, as it empowers the TV to easily keep up with the fast-paced motion.  In other words, you won’t be caught off guard and you’ll never react to a fast-paced scene with “wait, what just happened?”

Clear Phase

This is an audio feature that samples audio frequencies in order to match the sound that the content creators had in mind. Also, it makes up for any inaccuracies that might pop up with the speakers, so you’ll be able to enjoy accurate sounding audio.

Now you know what to expect from the TV, but there’s also a problem that needs to be addressed. Specifically, the ports are kind of wonkily placed on the TV. While it has plenty different ports for you to use, you must first be able to actually reach them. Plugging into both HDMI ports is a bit of a struggle, and for some it’s a major inconvenience having to spend more than 10 seconds to plug or unplug a cable, let alone reach the port.

Pros

  • Clear sound
  • Good picture
  • High connectivity

Cons

  • Inadequate port positioning
