Sony Bravia A8H/A8 OLED TV review

 

As well as introducing an improved Acoustic Surface Audio system, the A8H/A8 brings a number of features previously saved for its premium OLED models to a more affordable TV.

Gorgeous, refined picture Good sound quality Ultra-wide viewing angles Bold, industrial design

No HDR10+ support Sometimes fiddly operating system Android TV can frustrate Potential for screen burn

By combining Sony’s premium OLED picture performance with a powerful and direct sound system, the Sony A8H/A8 OLED TV manages to be a stunningly compelling TV option for serious home cinema fans.

Sony A8/A8H (KD-65A8) review: impeccable OLED TV pictures and great built-in sound

 

The Sony A8/A8H OLED TV matches LG's dominant CX for price, but adds the best image processing in the business and ingenious speaker tech

Sony KD-55A8 review

 

Sony's top 2020 OLED (so far) is one of its best TVs yet

Natural and authentic picture ; Superb motion handling ; Crisp, involving sound

High-contrast images lack punch ; Lacking next-gen HDMI features

The A8 is Sony’s best OLED yet, and that’s really saying something

Sony KD-65A8 Review

 

Sony has been banging out premium TVs for many years now and, in the age of OLED, the manufacturer continues to turn in quality offerings. With the Sony A8 series, you get detailed, accurate and rich colours combined with light touch design and...

– Stunning display performance, classy design and surprisingly strong audio capabilities

– Not the brightest, no HDR10+ or 4K/120Hz and hit-and-miss Android TV

The Sony KD-65A8 is one of the best TVs that the veteran manufacturer has made. Sony takes a measured approach to OLED and the results are accurate yet mystifyingly beautiful. The beauty extends to the design, equating to one of the best looking TVs...

Sony KD-65A8 review

 

“...there's a difference between ‘cinematic' and ‘dark'...”

Nuanced, lifelike 4K pictures ; Fine upscaling ; Impressive audio system and performance

No HDR10+ ; No support for some next-gen console features ; Not the brightest OLED TV around

An oddball in a few ways, but the KD-65A8 has it where it counts

Sony A8H 4K HDR OLED TV review: Superbly cinematic

 

The Sony A8H OLED isn't even the flagship model for 2020, but it certainly could be. This television is something very special, but it isn't for everyone.

Gorgeous design ; Exemplary picture quality ; Snappy UI ; Solid sound quality ; Excellent HDR performance

No HDMI 2.1 ; Expensive

Sony A8H OLED Review (XBR-55A8H, XBR-65A8H)

 

The Sony A8H OLED is an excellent TV that delivers incredible picture quality and manages to improve upon its predecessor, the Sony A8G OLED. Its OLED panel can ...

Wide viewing angles. Low input lag. Can remove judder from all sources. Decent HDR peak brightness. Decent SDR peak brightness. Near-instantaneous response time. Perfect black levels.

No VRR support. Risk of permanent burn-in. Stutters in lower frame rate content.

The Sony A8H is an excellent TV for most uses. Its picture quality is amazing thanks to an infinite contrast ratio and near-instantaneous response time. It upscales lower resolution content well, which is great for watching cable TV or sports. HDR...

Sony Bravia A8H OLED TV review

 

The Sony Bravia A8H OLED TV's beautiful 4K picture, impressive motion smoothing and abundant smart home compatibility make it a competitive sell, even for an Android TV of its price.

Competitive price by OLED standards ; Excellent blacks ; Accurate color reproduction ; Highly customizable UI ; Google Assistant built in, plus Alexa and HomeKit support ; Mic status light on the remote

Only two size options ; Ambient light sensor feels limited ; Remote isn’t backlit ; No HDMI 2.1

. But for those who care about watching movies at home through the perspective of the director’s chair, this is the ultimate premium option on the market.
