4.7 VOTES: 31 TECHWEEK

Years go by and big brands surprise us with more powerful televisions that offer things that were previously unthinkable. Proof of this is the model that Sony presents us , which seems wonderful to us for all the possibilities it offers us. We refer specifically to the  Sony XR-55A84J  perfect for everything you need.

And we are not lying when it is said that it can meet even the greatest requirement, therefore, it has a fairly high cost that easily exceeds 1,700 euros, so, before thinking about buying this TV, we must know everything in depth. reality can offer us. And we are going to achieve that through this article created for the Sony Bravia XR-55A84J .

We are going to find an aesthetic of good presence and elegance

Something that we almost always highlight about this firm is that it usually offers quite good designs regardless of the category, obviously the  Sony XR55A84JAEP would not be the exception and we are going to find a television with a modern and minimalist appearance. Another detail to consider is that we are talking about a 55-inch device for medium-sized rooms or rooms.

What we like the most is that it fits perfectly with any environment, and that makes it end up being one more decoration for the place where it is placed. We are fascinated by the fact that it has a fairly narrow front that integrates slim bezels , which will allow us to enjoy a unique elegance that is maintained regardless of the viewing angle.

Having this not only generates a greater presence, but also ends up benefiting us when it comes to viewing content. We say this because the useful space of the screen will have better dimensions along the edge , thus we avoid that what is seen is in the way. There is no doubt that we are facing an almost perfect aesthetic of a beautiful exhibition.

Connectivity

This topic is also perfectly covered by the essential connectors for a great experience. First, we must know that there are four HDMI inputs , however, the most important thing is that two of those are version 2.1 , ideal for connecting consoles and receiving great benefits. On the other hand, we have three USB ports   where in the same way one comes in version  3.0  for a fairly fast data transmission when recording.

We enjoy other extra physical connections that also give a lot of value to the functioning of the television at the connective level. Here we find an Ethernet port, two satellite inputs, an AV composite, an audio output and an RF type antenna. Let’s talk about the wireless that presents the expected options, for example, its  Wi-Fi for remote internet use, we will also have options such as Bluetooth 4.2  and  DLNA .

Image quality and general functions of the Sony XR-55A84J

It is obvious that the greatest power of the  Sony XR-55A84J  we are going to find in its image quality, and it is not for less if we take into account all that it can offer us. In the first place, we are talking about a model with a 4K resolution four times more powerful than Full HD , therefore, from the beginning we receive details with much more real touches.

All the power that is achieved with this television is partly thanks to its OLED panel that for years has already let us see all the potential it gives to image quality. Its backlighting allows us to enjoy totally pure  and  more precise blacks . This is perfect if the location of the TV is in dark or bright areas.

Another detail that gives a much greater value to the image we see is the large number of technologies that are integrated, which cannot be mentioned in their entirety because it would be a huge article and many functions do a similar job. Here the only thing you should know is that the parameters such as  color ,  contrast  and  brightness  are improved too much.

So we are going to receive an incredible image quality that you must see for yourself, since mentioning this is not the same as living the experience. Likewise, it includes Dolby Vision ,  HDR10  and  HLG  that give us a much more extensive contribution for content that allows compatibility with these formats. Without a doubt,  we are facing one of the best images .

Sound

It could be considered the point of least value, however, it does not mean that the audio quality is bad, on the contrary, it can give us perfectly acceptable results. The only problem so to speak is that the power of its speakers only offers 20W , yes, two subwoofers are integrated that give us an extra 10W that add a lot of value.

So we have a sound outlet that better covers the entire room. In this case, what is truly valuable is the amount of technologies that this model offers us. We even invite you to know all of them in the specifications table above . They all do an excellent job and give us a cleaner and more immersive experience.

We have the latest version of Android that will deliver great benefits

The  Sony Bravia XR-55A84J  implements the latest version of Android TV or as it is known elsewhere Google TV, but it is exactly the same. This new update offers optimization  and  security , likewise, it is an intuitive system. We will have an application catalog of more than 5,000 applications thanks to its Play Store.

This same one will also allow us to download movies, music and games as if it were a smartphone. To enjoy a more precise and simple control of the TV we have  Google Assistant  and  Alexa  that allow us to perform certain actions using only our voice. With this we get a better handling of certain functions.

Normally it is a bit difficult to transmit content from an iPhone, iPad or Mac, however, that changes with the Sony XR55A84JAEP , since it includes the  Apple AirPlay 2  and  Apple Homekit applications  that allow us this option without disconnections, so we can enjoy photos, music and videos on the TV. It also features  Chromecast Built-in .
