Sony KD-65S8505C

 

The KD-65S8505C is Sony's second-generation curved TV. It's a 65-inch model boasting a native 4K UHD resolution, Sony's latest X1 4K video-processing system, the company's Triluminos wide-colour gamut technology, and the new Android TV smart OS.

Frequently spectacular native 4K picture quality ; Beautiful colour handling ; Exceptionally powerful 4K upscaling

Messy dynamic backlight system ; Android TV feels clunky and lacks customisation options ; Expensive versus equivalent flat-screen TVs

Sony KD-65S8505C review

 

Sony boards the 4K curved screen bandwagon

Colour performance is spectacular ; Its curvature is subtle ; Excellent 4K detailing ; Fair value

Issues with dark scenes ; Reflective screen ; Android system is cumbersome ; Sluggish operating system

While a slightly average black level response and some clumsy dynamic contrast controls on the 65S8505C seem a little odd given Sony's previous prowess in such areas, the fact is that for much of the time the 65S8505C's pictures are actually...
