That's sure, but your entire review and comparison are based on UHD HDR signals that are not the sources that we can use at moment, the most part of tv series, bluray movies, sat/dtt broadcast are in fullhd and often the bitrate is not enough to ensure picture quality, unfortunately this is the truth

so apart the bluray UHD HDR, it's your opinion that even in that cases the Oled LG is better than a samsung lcd?

what about football events?

leaving the perfect black is the LG's image processing on par with Samsung / Sony / Panasonic?

In terms of motion I would rate the OLED the same as KS8. True, if you engage Auto Motion on Samsung, you will get a lot more detail in moving objects than on the LG OLED, but then you get soap opera effect so it doesn't really count in my book. You might disagree and prefer this effect, but then we aren't discussing the matter on a common ground. On the preffered settings of motion systems both will provide about the same experience in e.g. sports broadcasts.

The Samsung doesn't turn low bitrate material into gold perceivably better than the LG does, and I would rate the signal handling to be good on both of them.

We aim for a 6500 Kelvin white point, optimal for a dark viewing environment. 6500 Kelvin is a little warm in the tone, yes.

Do you also have settings for viewing in daylight?

#7772 No sorry.

But a good guideline is to use a higher backlight setting and maybe aim for a slightly higher color temperature (depends on your environment). All the dynamic options should still be off.

#7865 When does this micro-stutter issue pop up? Is it also there when turning all the image enhancing features off (e.g. in Game mode)?

I find it a bit hard to believe that every Samsung TV produced in the past few years has unavoidable, intermittent stuttering, yet this is neither acknowledged by Samsung, mentioned in reviews (other than here) nor brought up by buyers. I'm not calling flatpanelshd liars, I just want to understand the situation a bit better.

#7871 Game mode should make the issue disappear.

Micro-stutter is something you have to pay attention to spot. It is random 1 frame freezes that pops up on some occations - predominantly when changes scenes in a movie. Poor signals tend to increase the frequency of the stutters. I can't tell you why others fail to spot them, but I can backtrack the issue all the way back to the ES-series (that my parents have).

#7883 I've had micro-stutter with my 2014 UK 55HU7500 - I use the Clear motion setting on sport/news/soaps (PAL 50Hz video sources) which is generally stutter-free, but stutters appear on these sources when I use the Standard or Smooth motion settings which are needed to smooth out film programmes or reduced-frame filmed inserts. I don't mind the soap-opera look, but I do object to stuttering. I've just ordered a 55KS8000 to see if any improvements have been made since 2014. If not then I'll send it back and try out another brand (but do Sony TVs allow audio-sync adjustment? I believe not).
