Sony KD-49XF9005 review


Only slight improvements on its predecessor, but they make this a belter of a TV.

Good handling of detail ; Nuanced yet punchy colours ; Impressive contrast ; Full range of apps

Android TV is a bit clunky

A small step forward, but a step forward all the same – the KD-49XF9005 is now the 49in TV to beat
