Anyone know the difference between the XG to the XF models?
Back up to £999 again.

I'd almost decided to go for it as well.

The XG is the updated model with the latest Ultimate Processor. The XF has the slightly older Extreme Processor.
Apparently the processor has amazing upscaling capabilities. A pity they didn't have many in stock at this price.

Maybe it'll come back down to this price again soon
Yeah XF buyers will get shafted with no android updates at all

Aside from the upgraded image processing (which you'd never notice unless they were side by side, given the X1 Extreme was already amazing) and it being very slightly brighter, the most important things that people would notice are that it has four full bandwidth HDMI ports capable of 4K/60 (the XF9005 only has two), and the SoC for the Android TV portion has also been upgraded, meaning it runs a lot smoother. The XF90 uses the ancient Mediatek MT5891, which had been plaguing Sony TVs for years, whereas the XG95 uses the MT5893, which has stronger CPU cores also running at a higher clock speed, a much better GPU and they also paired it with an extra gigabyte of RAM (3GB vs 2GB).
Can you get the now tv app on these TVs.

The best TV for the money that I've seen for my needs... just hoping for a little cheaper soon
I'd love one of these for watching dinner date and coach trip!
How would this compare with LG 55SM9010PLA?

Considering them both and didn't know if anyone thought that one is the obvious choice. Or are they about the same in terms of viewing quality etc

Has the XF9005 upgrade to the XG9005 benefited from the same enhancements as the XG95 update?

No, the XG9005 retains the same specs as the XF9005 across the board.

Thank You.

That’s disappointing, I was leaning towards the 49XG9005 but now I feel I’m purchasing old technology. So I may now go back to considering the LG SM8600.

Well don't get me wrong, I'm not saying the XF/XG9005 is a bad TV or anything. In fact, I'd take it over that LG any day. From a basic picture quality standpoint it thrashes the LG, given it has full-array local dimming (the LG is edge-lit) and uses a VA panel compared to the IPS one in the LG (resulting in much better black levels even before counting the FALD). Sony's picture processing is also superior to LG's, especially in terms of motion handling.

Whilst you do get a smoother smart TV system and (I beleve) four full-bandwidth HDMI ports with the LG, you do sacrifice a lot of picture quality in exchange. The only situation it'd be worth buying the LG for is if you need really wide viewing angles and also mainly watch very bright content (sports etc). Though even then the Sony gets much, much brighter.
