My biggest hesitation in buying a television over a projector was the fact they all come with bloated apps, malware, and sell your data to companies. Some of the worst examples of this have manufacturers tracking everything you're watching and data going through your home network.
Sony gets an A+ here because in the install process they let you opt out. Sony has always been very good about privacy implications, which is the only reason I even bought this TV. Everyone else is sneaky about forcing you to agree to tracking.
USER INTERFACE - Performance
My second biggest concern with getting a TV was that I've always seen these user interfaces lag. I hate lag, no one likes lag, it makes you feel frustrated. The apps that I saw my friends use on their devices were slow, sometimes taking multiple seconds just to show basic information.
The processor in this TV is crazy. I've not only never seen lag, but the TV remembers what you were last doing in apps so you can easily swap between apps. Truly unbelievable they achieve this without lag, this television often feels more like a computer.
USER INTERFACE - User Experience
I've been developing user interfaces for 10 years now. I've seen a lot of horrible interfaces. This though.. this is one of the absolute best.
Your dashboard entirely customizable with apps you want to use. The dashboard is great at showing you content from each app that you want to see without having to dig for it. As an example, the news app shows latest news that's relevant. Or the music app shows your recently played playlists. Amazing.
The UI is great, but what is more amazing is that each app has its own well-designed interface. Truly the individual apps for Netflix, Google Music, and others are even better than the companies that made those apps have developed. I would take Sony's app interfaces over the others any day. So good.
It's hard to believe Sony made such a killer UI for its products and the products of other companies, and yet, they did.
I've always been an android guy. Naturally this TV integrates with my entire ecosystem of Android and Google products. You get deep integration with the Google Assistant, all the Google products, and if you have an android phone you can easily pair/cast it. And without hassle! I was very impressed with how simple everything I wanted to do was.
iPhone users also get Air Play and other goodies too.
If you care about sound quality you're going to always skip the tv speaker and use your own hardware. That's the truth here too, but the default sound quality is above average. Very good lows, highs, and hearing conversations in noisy moments is well done.
As another review said, the tv gravitates towards a darker picture. I had no trouble modifying this, and the settings to quickly do this from one moment to another is extremely simple. Otherwise, this has been my first 4k tv so I can't give a great comparison, but I'll say the opening sequence had my mouth dropped :)
This is just a notice that you can (and should!) install more apps for your tv. If you want to add apps in the Play store that Sony doesn't offer you can "sideload" them. I love that advanced users have this option!
The App store Sony gives access to by default is also extremely good, with plenty of apps for all uses cases, even techie users who might want to do crazy things like SSH into their device or run a file server.
This unit nailed every single thing I was weary of, and over-delivered everywhere else. I would buy this device again in a heartbeat. Keep it up Sony, you truly are a wonderful manufacturer.
UPDATE: Feb 25, 2020: We've been able to get it brighter by reducing the Black Level settings. Now we are having a 'picture jumping or stutter' problem with fast camera cut scenes, like on Food Network "Diner, Drive Ins, Dives". I've disabled both of the motion smoothing features and it still is happening. Not 100% sure we are keeping it.
UPDATE: March 7, 2020: I've been able to solve the majority of the problems with the picture being too dark. We were still having issues with picture 'jumping or stutter', so I reached out to a high-end a/v store in the area. He said it's a great tv and we should buy new HDMI 2.1 cables, so I bought an 8K HDMI 2.1 Ultra High Speed 48Gbps on Amazon ($19.99). It has helped but not solved the picture stuttering completely. I have turned off all the motion smoothing settings and it doesn't make it any different. The a/v store is now suggesting that it's the quality (or lack of) from our cable tv provider (Comcast Xfinity). 4K HDR10 content on Amazon Prime and Netflix does not seem to have the stutter issue.

Sound is OK too for a TV in this price range. But really, if you are serious about wanting "great sound" for any TV, then you need to hook it up to more serious audio equipment ..... always.
The built quality of this Sony appears to be superior to Samsung, LG and other competing TV's in the $500-$800 price range, but remember you are paying over $800++ for this 49" Sony.
This mid-range 49" Sony Bravia X800H is proving its value above all when you need a smart TV that is easy to operate. Here the on-board Android System and its general interface really SHINE! It beats any of the other four TV sets we have in the house when it comes to speed, flexibility, ease of operation and characteristics of a smart TV. SUPERB! So easy, so smooth and simple to operate and so fast in switching back and forth between whatever you would like to watch (with all imaginable sources such as Fibe cable box, digital antenna, YouTube, IPTV from and Android app, Amazon Prime, Netflix and even from a big external hard drive on USB cable. Yet, the Android system on this "Bravia" is more limited than a full fledged Microsoft 10 system on your PC or laptop: Not ALL web cameras and Blue Tooth accessories are compatible with this TV. But of course you can easily connect your laptop to the TV. It shines!
You should really consider this baby if you look for a truly smart TV. You can save $150 to $200 if you need a plain vanilla television set with a reasonable picture just to play from you cable provider or DVD. A lower end brand will do in that case. But if this is your main tv or you need versatility, then this 49" is a great choice.
Yet, if you really need super top notch video, then you need to spend another $200 to $300 for higher-end Sony's etc. But it is doubtful if you clearly can see the difference, because picture quality improvement is not so huge if you spend yet more money! So, the Sony Bravia X800H is as good as it gets for a 49" in the $800 to $850 price bracket but it ain't for people who first and foremost are interested in budget pricing. Pricing is the only reason why I gave this unit 4 stars.... I would give it a totally perfect 5 stars if pricing would be $100 - $150 lower (and not $849).
CONCLUSION: This TV delivers a great bang for the $849 I paid. It is a smart performer with a great picture and lots of smooth running applications such as Netflix, YouTube (etc., etc). It has a solid build-quality and it is easy to use. If you look for all of that too, then by all means... spend the money. You will not be disappointed. But if you are on a budget, you can save a few $100 by looking at other brands.
I found the picture quality very good and did not encounter some of the display problems others have had.
It's a SONY.. (That used to mean something.)
I'm a bit of a privacy concerned individual. Having said that, this TV was TOO smart. The option to opt out of the TERMS of SERVICE was no longer an option. The monitoring of everything you do and selling it to third parties is a given.
Had I agreed to allow it to connect to my smart phone, I would have been up & running quickly. My problem with that is all data, contacts, e-mails etc... would have become accessible to Sony and third parties. Many people have no problem with that, so, it's due to my valuing of privacy.
My router only allows phone wireless connections. I use a LAN cable for my laptop and Win 10 for increased security.
CONS: (A small part of a long list).
I tried to connect to my Internet provider as my input source, however, the cable company I'm with was not listed on the menu. I could not complete the setup. :(
Now my HDTV is connected via an HDMI cable to my laptop which had to run Windows 10.
So, due to these problems, it's primary use is as a display screen/monitor. My eyes needed the relief.
However, this means that I am limited to a 1980 x 1024 display and no HDTV. A Blue Ray DVD player will be my best option to fully experience the true Hi res HDR quality of the TV.
All the literature including guarantee certificate were in Spanish. (The user manual was built in and available from the TV itself only.) It was impossible to deal with and after every avenue I tried was exhausted I finally got a phone number for Canada Support. They never returned my call. After a full month, still not registered.
As mentioned by others, the power cord is so short that the large, heavy power adapter is pulling on the small connector on the back of the TV. (Should I mention the unbelievably inaccessible connections on the back of the TV?)
I found this TV overpriced with many of the screws for attaching to a wall mentioned, (but, NOT INCLUDED!) No Blue ray support except for remotes. The audio connector for headphones was a small, traditional audio connection and it's limited quality.
When I tried the SONY support sites I was shown the same pictures we see on Amazon and all about upgrading to a better model. All about selling!
OK here is what makes my bias comes through regarding to the internet or even antenna. I face south in a high rise building, so signal quality is horrible due to it's cement balcony etc... this is not a viable option due to distance etc...
The only thing that doesn't work well is the Bluetooth. It appears it only supports Sony wireless products or devices that support A2DP Bluetooth profile but no guarantees there. I have a set of very high end Bluetooth headphones and a stereo speaker unit that the unit will not recognize. Shame on you Sony!
Other than that, for over picture quality and streaming capabilities, I recommend it as a good buy.
I contacted Sony and to say customer service was the poor is an understatement. Truly disappointed to say the least and was told these spots were not considered a deficiency.
I contacted amazon and described the situation and was told “No problem” we will refund money. I said I just wanted a replacement, no problem. New tv sent next day.
Sony can sure learn a few things on customer service from Amazon.
