Oh, I wouldn't mind it much if it weren't for the HDR issue. When playing Gears of War 4 I have these four gray clouds floating in the middle of my screen and visible most of the time. Very annoying.
The test is crude, but gives a good comparison. The screen with the Amazon logo in Amazon Video series has a moment where the logo is relatively small and surrounded by a black screen. Pause it at the right time.
I've done this on the following:
- Amazon Video running on the TV, non HDR
- Amazon Video running on the TV, HDR
- Amazon Video running on Xbox One S, non HDR
- Amazon Video running on Xbox One S, HDR
For when running on the TV, did this on both my old set without Marshmallow and the new set with Marshmallow.
Non-HDR sources showed no clouding at all other than a bit immediately surrounding the logo. You can clearly see most of the zones are off.
On non-Marshmallow, all HDR sources show all the clouds clearly, including the ones at the corner. The black is mostly gray and the zones are clearly not off.
On Marshmallow, HDR from the app on the TV shows no clouding and solid blacks. Screen is black. Zones are clearly off. HDR from the Xbox, though, looks the same as on non-Marshmallow.
The setting is locked at medium in the settings, but that seems to be a bug. Also, the picture mode for the Xbox is HDR Video.
