Yeh its android, last years model though. But it is a nice tv for price
I have the Sony 55in 5005c fantastic TV but it's quite sluggish. Have they improved the processor in the new models.
Its IPS panel btw, great for wide viewing angles however a downside is colours

Better TV's at this price point and size?


No, I'm saying that if you are not bothered about size, then there are better TVs.

This TV doesn't have Triluminous display, for example.

Definitely, smaller tvs usually mean either less price or better picture quality at same price.
With picking TVs if you have a budget in mind its about balancing getting a bigger tv but neglecting on picture quality or a smaller tv but better picture, and i think its a personal choice.

Absolutely. That's all I'm saying.

Heat for the price, for sure.

Review on Google



Beware of the Specifications of the 55" & the 65" TV, this are 2 different models with only the 55" capable of some HDR content
ByBruno C.on 17 November 2016
Was going to purchase this TV, either the 55" or the 65", but since no model number of either TV is listed in the description, and looking at the reviews, decided to do some digging about this 2 models and explain some concepts that are misleading for the consumer in all the TV brands nowadays, that requires research to fully understand some concepts, putting it somewhat resumed;

Main thing people need to be aware nowadays is the wrong publicity of what is HDR and if the TV accurately reproduces its content, just so you know, for a TV to display HDR content correctly, the minimum requirement that a TV needs to have are:

1. Peak brightness above 500 nits for an Ok to good HDR experience or Peak brightness around 1000 nits for a FULL HDR content;
2. Colour gamut of at least a 8 bit colour display with FRC (FRC is a technology that allows a 8 bit colour display to emulate a 10 bit colour display), or even better a real 10 bit or 12 bit colour display (but lets ignore those because their prices are for someone who have a really good wallet, and are the ones that should give you FULL HDR content);
Note: 8 bit colour: 16,777,216 colours (24 bits: 8 red, 8 green, 8 blue).
Note: 8 bit + FRC and 10 bit colours: 1,073,741,824 colours (30 bits: 10 red, 10 green, 10 blue).

I'm just explaining this because most of the cheapest TV brands say they have HDR, just really don't have it, which I believe its false advertising for the consumer and a really set back when you think you are really buying a good TV with all the goodies for a good price. Putting this way, you think you bought a Ferrari, but you were given a Fiat with the looks of a Ferrari.

So basically, if you buy a 8 bit TV that says it reproduces HDR, this is a lie and you don't even need to care about brightness in that TV, simple because it doesn't have a display that can reproduce all the HDR colours. Example: 55" Samsung UE55KU6400 or any 6000 Samsung (2016 TV series).

Now lets go to the brightness, although to have a FULL HDR experience, the TV display needs at least 1000 nits of peak brightness, you can still enjoy a good HDR experience if the TV display reaches half that value, 500 nits, off course you wont have the full HDR experience, but the price difference between the models are something to take in consideration. Bellow 450 nits of peak brightness in a TV, the HDR experience isn't going to be noticeable at all and will come blurred and with fake colours in the display.

Since I put this away and I hope you understood this about all 4K HDR TV'S, here are the main Pros and Cons of this 2 different size and TV models:

64.5" Sony KD-65XD7505
Pros: £1300 is a Good price for a TV of this size, it has an IPS 8 bit + FRC display, a refresh rate of 120Hz which usually is only seen in high end models, the backlight is Direct Led, the Motionflow XR is at 800Hz.
Cons: The max peak brightness is only 350 nits, which means it wont be able to reproduce an ok level of HDR content and the pixel density is at 68 ppi.

54.5" Sony KD-55XD7005
Pros: It has an IPS 8 bit + FRC display, the backlight is Direct Led, The max peak brightness is the minimum 500 nits, which means it will give you a good level of HDR content and the pixel density is 81 ppi.
Cons: The Motionflow XR is the lowest at 200Hz and the max refresh rate is 60Hz.

Conclusion:
While this are 2 very good models, what one lacks, the other one possesses, while the 65" TV lacks the HDR content, the 55" TV is capable of it with the problem of a low refresh rate that shouldn't be noticeable unless there are really fast images.

I Hope this review between the 2 models let you choose better between this 2 TV's for 2016 Black Friday, but also gives you some enlightenment for all the options in all TV brands and if it actually supports HDR content, which is a main factor when investing in a good TV for the Future.
For people that are unsure about 4k and HDR. They are always linked together but are not the same thing. 4k represents the pixels of the TV. So, you'll need a 4k TV to display 4k content at its native resolution.

HDR means high dynamic range. In layman's terms the range of tones the colour can show.

Whilst this TV will show HDR content it will not give you the true HDR of the source.

For true HDR you require a LCD panel that is 10bit or above. (Or OLED). This Sony TV is only 8bit.

Review: https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/sony/x750d



from that review it looks like it is a 10bit panel
I'd be wary of the image retention on this model, something completely unacceptable for an LCD imo.
excellent!! cheers!!

Display specifications site shows its not a true 10 bit panel. Its 8 bit + FRC
Only 1 year warranty though 🙄
Can it be wall mounted
