Exterior design of the Sony KD-65X82J

We have an interesting design, especially for the good construction that is offered to us

The Sony KD-65X82J delivers a nice appearance that looks good in any environment. First, we have a 65-inch television, a large size that seems ideal for rooms or large rooms. We also recommend the VESA mount for better installation .

The best thing is to adapt it directly to the wall so we can make the most of its aesthetics. Especially since the front has thin bezels that offer 93.24% of the screen area , therefore, we will have a more beneficial space to play content.

This is accompanied by a black chassis that seeks to deliver a more elegant TV with a better presence. If we turn the television over, we will realize that it has a cleaner construction with a finer style. Another strong point is that the construction is quite resistant .


Now let’s talk about the connector box that seems complete for a model with these characteristics. We have four HDMIs to connect external devices. We also have two USB to play and record content. Its Ethernet port is ideal for connecting to the internet.

Other physical connections that are great for us are its satellite input , its digital audio output , its AV composite and its antenna . Likewise, this equipment offers an interesting variety of tuners for the channel trail. To know them we leave you the table of specifications above.

Wireless connectivity

We find the most popular options to get the most out of this TV, for example, its Wi-Fi connection that allows us to use the internet remotely. Likewise, we have Bluetooth 4.2 to connect different devices. To transmit we have DLNA .

Image quality and general functions of the Sony 65X82J

The most important section of the Sony 65X82J is its image quality, which seems quite acceptable if we consider several points and the good optimization that is offered. To begin with, we have a 4K resolution that has four times more power than Full HD, therefore, we will be able to enjoy more realistic details .

This definition is accompanied by a Direct LED panel   that we could consider as the weakest point, since its backlight does not reach the necessary power if we are in very dark or bright environments, so  the placement of the TV ends up being something important , this way we can avoid quality losses that are very noticeable.

We must mention that this television has different improvement technologies that will be of great contribution to receive a much better final experience. In this case we have  Live Color  that is responsible for giving us more vivid colors. For the contrast we received the contribution of  Pixel Contrast Booster  for a sharper experience.

There will be other features that also provide a considerable improvement, for example,  Triluminos Pro Display ,  XR Super Resolution  and  4K X-Reality Pro . Another noteworthy point is that this model has dynamic formats that will offer us an incredible response when it comes to watching movies and games. We have  Dolby Vision ,  HDR10  and  HLG .


Another weak point, so to speak, of this television is its audio quality, since it only offers us a total of 20W, which is not enough when listening to more demanding content. Luckily, improvement technologies such as Dolby Atmos ,  DTS Digital Surround  and  X-Balanced speaker have been integrated  that will give us a more immersive and clean experience, however, to hear everything with greater clarity it is necessary to acquire an external sound bar.

Smart TV / software review and more highlights

This model integrates Android TV, a system that we think is quite good due to the different functions that it allows us to use.

The most outstanding thing about the Sony KD-65X82J  is that it has a recent version of the Android system that includes better optimization and security,  although we should not rely much on this either . Navigation feels fluid and the most interesting thing is that it is a very intuitive platform that anyone can use.

Likewise, it has the most extensive catalog of applications that currently exists, and we are not lying when we say that you can install more than 5,000 applications, where we will find the most popular options such as Netflix ,  Prime Video ,  Disney + ,  Movistar ,  HBO  and  YouTube . Likewise, we will have the possibility to download games, movies and music.

This television has compatibility for  Google Assistant  and  Amazon Alexa , which allows us to control certain functions of the television using only our voice, thus facilitating the use we give it. They include  Apple AirPlay  and  Apple Homekit  that allow us to transmit all types of content from an iPhone, iPad or Mac.
