    New for 2019, the X950G can summon Google Assistant hands-free by saying, "OK, Google" The TV lets you use your phone to cast apps via its built-in Google Cast functionality. Apple's AirPlay 2 and HomeKit compatibility is coming later this year.
    Pros
    • Full-array local dimming (FALD)
    • Improved black levels and contrast
    Cons
    • No HDR10 support

    X950G runs Android TV better than Sony TVs produced even as recently as last year. X950G is an especially good upscaler, so no matter what signal you feed the TV, the image looks better by the time you see it. Motion handling is the best out there, so you won't have to deal with judder or blur.
    Pros
    • Beautiful, cinematic image
    • Excellent HDR performance
    • Excellent motion handling
    Cons
    • No HDMI 2.1
    • No HDR10+ support

    Reviewers from rtings have found:
    The Sony X950G is a great TV for mixed usage. It has deep blacks that make movies look great, and fast response time so sports action looks crisp. It's not the best TV for watching a big game with a big group of people, as the viewing angles are rather poor, causing the image to look washed out.
    Pros
    • Outstanding peak brightness
    • Excellent reflection handling
    • High native contrast ratio
    • Great black uniformity
    Cons
    • Poor viewing angles
    • No FreeSync variable refresh rate

    Reviewers from techradar have found:
    The X950G is a fantastic screen for 4K/HDR content thanks to its bright, accurate images and neat Netflix Calibrated Mode. It's one of the worst-sounding TVs of the year - on par with some of the cheapest models. While the TV doesn't produce accurate - or sometimes even audible - dialogue, it does support a number of ways to pass audio onto a more capable system. The main problem is that it has a big bass boost from the down-firing speakers and very little power in the mid-range.
    Pros
    • Bright, accurate 4K/HDR images
    • Netflix Calibrated Mode
    Cons
    • Poor black levels
    • No Dolby Vision

    The Sony X950G Android TV is one of the best smart TVs we've ever reviewed. The remote has a slimmer design, a metal faceplate and smaller, round buttons. Android TV 8.0 gets a simpler interface, with accessible icons for changing inputs and accessing settings at the top of the screen.
    Pros
    • Great audio performance
    • Android TV 8.0 is a major upgrade over Sony smart TVs
    • Google Chromecast integrated into the TV
    Cons
    • No Dolby Vision support
    • No Atmos support
