The hype was certainly never about the smart TV features. It's probably the weakest element of Sony TVs thanks to the ancient, budget Mediatek MT5891 SoC they use to power it (which they've reused yet again this year, annoyingly). All their Android models use it, right up to the A1 OLED. You can potentially speed it up a bit however:


In terms of picture quality the XE90 isn't far off the best you can possibly get from an LCD though. If you really want your mind blown, you're going to have to cough up for an OLED.

I've got this. It's a belter. Tvs have come on a lot since I bought my last one! Have a look at it in store if you can. The one remote is good too.

It's a pretty standard LED. It's not as decent as all the other current QLED sets, doesn't have local dimming like the Sonys etc.

This would have to be a 65 inch to make moderately interested at this price.

Actually it's still an LCD TV.

And it isn't a real QLED TV anyway, at least not in the way it should be. 2020 are when the true QLED sets, souped up OLED if you like, will appear. As it is, it's the same old suhd tech from last year marketed differently. It's an LCD screen with a fancy pants filter in front, it isn't self emitting like OLED. It looks good, don't get me wrong, but isn't a patch on OLED yet.

Give it a few years and it'll be awesome. And worthy of the name QLED when the tech becomes self emmisive.
Dont fall for the samsung gimmick.... Your basically buying an led tv with new casing... Itd not a oled competition

Does the OS actually matter though if I was to simply use a sky Q box or media player with it?
The Android would be irrelevant then wouldn't it?

Very true.Tried a Sony TV and returned itmAndroid interface is the worst I've used on a TV slow and laggy.As for Sony TV's their not what they used to be.Great deal this for a qled TV .If I didn't have my KS9500 series I would be going for this deal as I'm impressed with qled.

Your right i actually meant to put lcd, thanks for highlighting my error as it is important.
Great price for this TV, had one from Christmas and the picture is stunning, especially on the Blue Planet 2 HDR UHD Bluray.

I find the picture quality much better on the built in apps, like Netflix and Media Player, than on my Sony UBPX700B UHD Bluray player.

Then you need to look at your settings as a dedicated uhd player should produce better images than a compressed stream such as netflix...

I was talking about the built in apps, that was on 1080p HD upscaled media like standard bluray, tried all the settings but the Sony just looks soft and out of focus.
On UHD material the Sony is stunning, it just doesn't seem good at up-scaling.

Saw this in PC world the other week, display looked decent enough but absolutely abhor the stand and general build material of the TV. Looks very cheap. Would advise anyone interested to pop and have a look first.

Well it's actually an LCD with an Led Backlight.
Might be gimmicky but they look great in person. Try and see one in pc world
Micro LED is meant to be the next leap forward, as good as OLED and no screen burn

Heat! So tempted to upgrade my old LG tv from 2012. One on the list to consider.
Is this a newer replacement for the K8000?
I got this 2 weeks ago from JL for £979. Went in for a price match refund when curry’s had it for £929 the other day. Will be going back to claim the difference again to £895. I love their price match policy. You can do this for up to 28 days later I think.

As for the tv, it is awesome for the price. Especially this price. To see what it’s capable of you need to watch some 4K hdr content. I played a few samples from YouTube and they are amazing. The only problem is when you switch back to standard definition sources you realise how rubbish the standard channels are. Why is the uk behind so much in this matter. It should be illegal to broadcast anything less than Hd!
Saw one in local Currys and wasn't impressed by the build quality...its never easy to compare screen images either as they often share signals via splitters and the screen is often set at maximum levels too...i just hope that something decent turns up soon in the grand price bracket that's 55inch or more...

Totally agree with ya, I can get this for £785 which is about the right sort of money for a bedroom telly and we got 150 quid in JL vouchers too but I just don't like this Q6.

I also went to have a butcher's at it in Currys on my way in to work earlier, it does look cheap in the flesh and then there's them feet which are minging too

Will probably end up ordering the Q7 tonight because that's dropped to under 1200 quid now and with it being double points weekend on the plastic it will work out about £1033 for us I think, or about 15 quid more if we use the vouchers I suppose.

*well actually just £1.50 more before a maths genius pulls me on it final edit I swear

I bought the 49" Q7F (49" Q7F QLED Certified Ultra HD Premium HDR 1500 Smart 4K TV ) from John Lewis a few months back. It had an awfully fragile One-Connect cable (£200 to replace if it snaps by the way), and the TV had the worst color-banding I've ever seen. Just try to look at anything with a gradient-scale like blue sky. Also, the viewing angle is surprisingly terrible. Anything more than 20 degrees off seemed to lose a lot of the picture "shine".

I got a full refund. My advice - avoid QLED like the plague.

Considering an OLED but scared of screen-burn.

Hmmm not sure about the 200 quid figure but thank you for the food for thought there as I have looked at the lead and wondered about the performance yet never considered the prospect of it breaking doh

It's so thin it really is a wire rather than a cable, must admit that as much as I like the One Connect box concept that skinny little lead has come in to my thoughts loads of times, but only as in how is it able to do the job properly

Once the TV is wall mounted does the build quality really matter?

If you like the picture then buy, forget the hype of new technology, every year something new is introduced. Super Quantum Ultra Dot True VR is the next technology (made up) who cares????

At this rate you will be waiting for ever.

I'd put it out there that the build quality does matter and point out not everyone has their tellies wall mounted either, build quality is far more important than the OS as far as I'm concerned.

I really can't disagree with what @Copperface says about Android as on our XE9005 it's slower than a dead sloth with rigamortis fully set in but then again we don't need to use it with Sky Q, the various consoles and all the other devices we have in the house.

I don't think that many people base their purchases on the next new technology coming either, more like if anything they use that as an excuse not to buy a current set, probably because they ain't got the dough.

We buy a new main telly about every three or four years, sometimes at model launch and sometimes when it's a bit older and the price drops.

The only reason we're in the market for a new bedroom telly is because we want it to be 4K and the only other 4K set in the house is that 65“ Sony we got around this time last year. So we not had that nowhere near long enough to justify moving it upstairs and spending stupid money on a bigger n better TV for the front room.

"...does the build quality really matter?" if your car was 33% lighter in weight would you think "Whoopee better cornerning and fuel-economy"?? An Hotpoint is a perfectly good washing machine, a Bosch performs exactly the same task but is inexplicably higher in price..!??
The Dacia Sandero has "Won" What Car Best Buy under £12k for FIVE Years straight, do you know anyone who owns one or considering to do so...?? When inside a Dacia the driver is unable to see the exterior, similarly when parked in a garage no-one sees it at all.... why should the owner care..???
