The Sony Bravia KD-43XE8004 overall is a great TV if you plan to watch HDR content. It doesn’t have local dimming but instead, it has a frame dimming so the viewing experience will be divisive but for us, it’s a downer. The audio has a good loudness and clarity but it can be content dependent. The design is good overall because of the narrow frame and the hidden cables which makes this TV feel premium.

This TV features Android OS so it offers a wide support for Android apps that you can download via Google Play Store.
