from what i see, in the top right corner it looks like you have a big flashlight light bleed issue.
also indicate what settings you are using....turning off things like local dimming will make it worse. ...increasing backlight will also make it worse.
make sure you have energy saving turned off...try backlight at 50, local dimming, medium or high.
but if you cant get a decent picture without the bleed bothering you then take it back before your refund policy wears out.....ive seen way better panels out of the box...they do exist, and returning again and again is not uncommon to get a great one, keep trying as a great one is worth it.
if you take it back to get another, look at serial on box and try to get one with the first 3 numbers being 210, 211 or 212...these would be oct, nov, dec build dates respectively.
