You need a calibration meter such as an Xrite Colormunki and and Windows PC to calibrate a TV. I would suggest trying the SDR and HDR settings in my signature, and see how those work, if still not pleased, then it would be time to buy a meter and free a week or so to learn and try to calibrate. The link in my signature is from the X900F owners settings thread BTW

Is that the firmware upgrade that I've seen mentioned, or is that something different?
8.0 is the new firmware, otherwise known as "Oreo" in Android terms. You can ask the TV to upgrade or you can download the firmware from the Sony X900F support page and install from a USB drive formatted as FAT. If you have issues with the USB, try restarting the TV with the firmware file USB already plugged in, TV should start the upgrade on it 's own that way.

can you guys give me any tip on how to reduce it ?
Do you by chance have Xtended Dynamic Range turned on? Brightnes of 1 is very very dim, but when you turn Xtended DR on, it produces fake HDR and really overdrives the highlights, like white text, which could explain the excessive blooming. You could always turn off Local Dimming, but that hurts black levels a lot.
