Some models also include black-frame insertion for a blur-free and truly cinematic look.

My old Phillips 42" TV died at the beginning of sept 2016. I ordered this in a hurry and it came next day (prime). Great start! Set up was easy enough but then the problems started showing straight away. Once the YouView set up was done, I could see it was lagging quite a bit. This I thought might be due to it still setting up something in the background. Also when the image is dark there is a blueish blotch in the upper right portion of the screen. Never mind I thought, it only shows up when it's dark. I can live with that.
Tried casting my phone to this TV and it fails every time. EVERY TIME! Tried a few phones. I've had three phones since I got this TV, all Android and nothing!
The most annoying thing about this TV is the lag. Oh my god does it lag. To the point that it's unusable. If your watching a movie say on Amazon Prime Video or Netflix and try to turn the volume up or down (usually up due to the bad speakers) the picture starts to freeze, the volume counter doesn't show up and the actual volume may or may not actually go up (or down). About 30 seconds or so later the counter will pop up on the screen.
Trying to change channels on YouView is terrible. You may wait a minute or more for it to respond. But most of the time, when I switch the TV on and then try and turn channels it will freeze and then a message pope up saying YouView has stopped, then it gives you the option to 'wait' or 'stop' (or something to that effect). Absolutely appalling performance from a £650 TV. I'm sure the processor inside this unit just isn't up to the spec needed to run it. Basically everything you do with this TV you must wait for up to a minute for a response.
I still have it :( I don't want it but I think I've left it too late to do much about it. The only reason it hasn't been prioritized by myself to get it sorted or replaced is because I only use it when my son is down on the weekends. Because I don't use it in the week much I kept forgetting.
I will get round to doing a video showing the problems with this TV so keep an eye out on my Youtube channel if your interested.
(my YT channel name is Red Un-Box, but if you can't find it you will have to type in swanseajackinthebox and you will find it).
Anyway, don't buy this TV :p
RECOMMENDED? -- NOT A CHANCE!!
Of course the sound from TV's like this isn't exactly rich or powerful, but it isn't the worst sound I've heard from a TV of this size, and more than adequate for normal TV/movie watching. Those requiring an immersive experience should look to add a sound bar or similar.
Main thing people need to be aware nowadays is the wrong publicity of what is HDR and if the TV accurately reproduces its content, just so you know, for a TV to display HDR content correctly, the minimum requirement that a TV needs to have are:
1. Peak brightness above 500 nits for an Ok to good HDR experience or Peak brightness around 1000 nits for a FULL HDR content;
2. Colour gamut of at least a 8 bit colour display with FRC (FRC is a technology that allows a 8 bit colour display to emulate a 10 bit colour display), or even better a real 10 bit or 12 bit colour display (but lets ignore those because their prices are for someone who have a really good wallet, and are the ones that should give you FULL HDR content);
Note: 8 bit colour: 16,777,216 colours (24 bits: 8 red, 8 green, 8 blue).
Note: 8 bit + FRC and 10 bit colours: 1,073,741,824 colours (30 bits: 10 red, 10 green, 10 blue).
I'm just explaining this because most of the cheapest models of the TV brands say they have HDR, just really don't have it, which I believe its false advertising for the consumer and a really set back when you think you are really buying a good TV with all the goodies for a good price. Putting this way, you think you bought a Ferrari, but you were given a Fiat with the looks of a Ferrari.
So basically, if you buy a 8 bit TV that says it reproduces HDR, this is a lie and you don't even need to care about brightness in that TV, simple because it doesn't have a display that can reproduce all the HDR colours. Example: 55" Samsung UE55KU6400 or any 6000 Samsung (2016 TV series).
Now lets go to the brightness, although to have a FULL HDR experience, the TV display needs at least 1000 nits of peak brightness, you can still enjoy a good HDR experience if the TV display reaches half that value, 500 nits, off course you wont have the full HDR experience, but the price difference between the models are something to take in consideration. Bellow 450 nits of peak brightness in a TV, the HDR experience isn't going to be noticeable at all and will come blurred and with fake colours in the display.
Since I put this away and I hope you understood this about all 4K HDR TV'S, here are the main Pros and Cons of this 2 different size and TV models:
64.5" Sony KD-65XD7505
Pros: £1300 is a Good price for a TV of this size, it has an IPS 8 bit + FRC display, a refresh rate of 120Hz which usually is only seen in high end models, the backlight is Direct Led, the Motionflow XR is at 800Hz.
Cons: The max peak brightness is only 350 nits, which means it wont be able to reproduce an ok level of HDR content and the pixel density is at 68 ppi.
54.5" Sony KD-55XD7005
Pros: It has an IPS 8 bit + FRC display, the backlight is Direct Led, The max peak brightness is the minimum 500 nits, which means it will give you a good level of HDR content and the pixel density is 81 ppi.
Cons: The Motionflow XR is the lowest at 200Hz and the max refresh rate is 60Hz.
While this are 2 very good models, what one lacks, the other one possesses, while the 65" TV lacks the HDR content, the 55" TV is capable of it with the problem of a low refresh rate that shouldn't be noticeable unless there are really fast images.
I Hope this review between the 2 models let you choose better between this 2 TV's, but also gives you some enlightenment for all the options in all TV brands and if it actually supports HDR content, which is a main factor when investing in a good TV for the Future.
