I do watch a lot of movies in the dark and play horror games also in the dark.
How is the Dolby Vision performance? It's one of the things that appeal me of the Sony.
Also, has anyone played any games in a dark room to see how is the blooming in games?

The TV is excellent for gaming, I played witcher 3 and don't notice blooming in dark cave scenes with bright torches, the picture is a joy to look at. I'm using it as a PC monitor in my mancave and streaming shows/ movies. The time I have noticed objectionable blooming is if you are watching from off axis, but when sitting right in front whatever blooming that is present I don't find it least bit objectionable. At 1080p @60Hz, the TV has like 19ms input lag which is very good (in gaming mode), it it also supports [email protected]
(older Sony 900, 850 etc you had to force the resolution, but for this TV it offers native support.) [email protected]
would have even less input lag. I didn't play Witcher 3 at 120Hz because the game engine caps at 60fps, but my son did play Fortnite at 120Hz and it looked silky smooth on this TV. (RTX2060 card) (but that's probably also true of the Samsung as well)
As for Dolby Vision, HDR stuff on Netflix and Amazon I think looks superior to what I get with my Roku for Dolby Vision content, and I prefer the internal App , picture in my mind looks stunning on this TV with Dolby Vision. I haven't watched anything in full, but have sample several dolby vision stuff on shows I have already watched and it looks very nice. For about 4 to 5 days last week the Netflix app had some server side problem at Netflix and didn't work, but they have fixed that problem now. Hopefully its a onetime problem!
I can't compare the Samsung, but the Samsung is more expensive . When I was choosing I was picking between the 55q8fn and this sony 55x950g , I ended up going with the Sony since I prefer the natural colors on Sony (also for q8fn read it couldn't do black and white well, it had some weird magenta shading gradient across the screen) Android was a minus in my book for the Sony since I owned 65x850d and 65x850f and I thought android was too buggy and laggy, but they have made huge improvements for the x950g android performance, its now a joy to use. Unfortunately I still do see dropped frames for YouTubeTV (prefer Roku) But for Netflix and Amazon performance seems very great with Dolby Vision content looking stunning to me.
