My post is to determine if I should send the TV back and get a replacement. This post is not to talk bad about this TV. Cable, Blu Ray, Video Games, and 4K HDR Blu Ray movies look amazing on this TV. I am just seeing a little banding "dirty screen" on some material, mostly soccer. I also have a "hot spot" in the upper left side of the TV and is noticeable in some material (not all).
The TV is in my living room, the pictures and video's were shot on my iPhone 6S Plus, and there is some ambient light coming from the kitchen.
Note: the black dot on the screen is my mouse pointer.
This picture is a front view with a light grey background. I have no idea if you can see it but I have a "hot spot" in the top left corner. It's circled in red.
This picture is the side view going into the kitchen. Yes, I understand this is an "extreme" angle but you can see the "hot spot" better and some banding.
This picture is a front view with a green screen. I have circled where I see the most "dirty screen" when viewing soccer. But you really can't tell on this picture, more for reference.
This picture is the blue input screen. Not sure if you can tell but I have circled the "hot spot".
Here is a front view video of a banding test off YouTube. You can see the "hot spot" in the upper left hand corner when the clouds go by. You can't really see the banding in the grass like I could on soccer. You can also hear my dog taking a drink of water in the background
Here is a side view banding test. I understand that viewing from this angle shows more banding. So not sure if this video is valid.
