this is my concern. That the stripping out off features from the bigger sets will make the 49inch a hobbled TV that wouldn’t score as highly.
also a bit dubious about Android TV9. Hate the way it takes up the entire screen, and have heard issues with laggy performance and reboots. Android tv10 seems to be way off
I dont experience any lag on android 9 on my xg9505, it shares the same processor as the xh 9505 which makes a huge difference to performance.
My other tv an xe9005 which has a lower processor has no lag and is running android 8, i have no issues with its performance. Android 8 was a big improvement over android 7.
Just restart the tv once a week , which you should do with any computer not fully shutdown and you will have no issues. I dont experience random restarts on my tv, but if you dont do a weekly restart which takes about 30 seconds to 60 seconds then tv will eventually restart to clear memory registers if it needs to free up memory.
