Reviewers from techradar have found the following[***]:
The Sony X950H Series is part of the Sony 2020 TV lineup. It's not the most premium LCD-LED TV in the lineup, but it's within arm's reach of the regular TV buyer. Like previous years, Sony TVs still use Android TV as their primary smart platform. We like the Sony a bit more than the LG Nano Series due to its more natural colors, superb motion handling and excellent upscaling.

Pros[**]
  • Excellent picture quality
  • Android TV is a huge improvement over last year's model
  • Dolby Atmos passthrough and wall-mounting
Cons[**]
  • Lack of HDMI 2.1 ports

Sentiment Score[*] 87%
Reviewers from trustedreviews have found the following[***]:
The XH95 replaces the XG95 from 2019, bridging the gap between Sony's 4K LED TV and OLED range. The spec sheet implies it's a TV for home cinema fans rather than gamers looking to match it with their brand new PS5. In the UK, the price has dropped even further to around £1200 ahead of the incoming 2021 Sony TV range.

Pros[**]

The KD-49XH9505 is the latest in a series of high-end 49in sets from Sony. It features the X1 Ultimate chip, an X-Wide Angle panel and more advanced sound system. Android TV is far more pleasant than before, with the set responding instantly to button presses.
