HDR content support only, there's very little in the way of HDR display ability - it doesn't even have a wide gamut backlight.

It's a decent TV for the price though.

Mate, this TV is a bit more money than I wanted to spend, by about £100/130 my original budget being £350. You seem to know your onions, could you recommend a 48/49/50" decent set for around the £450/550 mark, as I'm chasing my tail. I've got a couple of cheap Nexbox a95x 2g 16g that work perfectly around the house, so I don't necessarily need an android TV.
Thanks for any advice.

Don't buy Sony Android TV, they're poorly supported. I've got one and never again.

All sets at that price are good, but some are excel in one area, others in another. It really depends on how you're going to use it as to which the best set is.

This XD70 is a good all-rounder. It particularly excels in viewing angles and is weak in contrast (and HDR, but so is everything else at this price). I wouldn't buy it as a dedicated home threatre or movie watching TV but for other uses it's a good choice.

Something like the Panasonic DX700 would be a good choice if you didn't need the wide viewing angles.

I ain't convinced about the Android TVs either. Better to get all the other bells and whistles sorted and then buy a separate android TV box. But what bells and whistles you get for around 500 quid on a 49"/50" screen is the question.

Cheers mate, the panny looks like a decent set, and it can be had from argos for just under 500 quid, using the TVS10 code.
I just want it for the bedroom mainly for watching football and the odd film that I stream through the Android Nexbox.

Every TV smart platform is poorly supported, you just have to buy them for what they have now rather than expecting any future updates or additions.

Pretty much, but Sony is especially bad. They break features and then don't bother fixing them for over a year, and counting. The last update was a fiasco with bricked TVs around the world and they had to pull the update for a month.

It's easy to see it that way when you've got one.

For comparison, Samsung took a year to get the All4 app onto it's 2016 models - despite it working fine on the 2015 ones with the same OS version.
