Sony - improve the input lag (+70ms) for 4k HDR gaming on 2015/2016 Bravia TVs

Sony Bravia TVs are really great for everthing else but games - I find it really awkward since Sony also sells one of the top selling video games in the market - the Playstation 4 Pro. (XBOX One S users will have the same problem).

The input lag for 4k HDR games is extremely high, ruining the experience of playing 4k HDR games on any Sony Bravia TV that supports 4k and HDR like the 2015 and 2016 models. 

According to independent sources the input lag for 4k HDR on Sony Bravia android TVs are roughly around 58ms-75ms. Just as a base number, 30ms is acceptable for casual gamers, bellow that we would have to get a computer monitor (1ms-10ms).

Our pledge is for Sony to make their TVs at least acceptable for causal gamers, by decreasing that input lag to at least something between 30-40ms so we can enjoy not only the TV from Sony but also the Playstation 4 pro or Xbox One S.

Example of NO improvement (actually it got worse) from previous Sony firmwares to the most current firmware released in 2017:
