I wish someone can convince me otherwise because I love those TVs
As someone that has gotten burn-in on his LG OLED from the HUD of a game, I can say that I never had any issue with BI in terms of sports. I watch a ton of Football, Basketball, Baseball, and Tennis. Never had an issue with logos on channels either.
Not saying it's not possible, though. The main thing to look out for is if the logo in question is either Red, Yellow, or some combination (Orange), fully saturated, and if we're talking SDR or HDR. This is generally what OLEDs have issues with. LGD has made physical changes in the panels to have much larger Red subpixels to (hopefully) avoid this issue. In theory, it should, but the panels with these changes haven't been available long enough to test their lifespans.
Erring on the side of caution, if you know you'll be watching a lot of CNN, which has a fully saturated, always on, Red logo, I'm not saying you will have an issue, but I would never feel comfortable recommending an OLED for that use case, personally. The same if you know that any of the channels you will watch for long periods of time have Yellow logos that are fully saturated, and always on. If you play games that have HUD elements that are Red/Yellow, and you can't change their opacity in settings, and especially if you play in HDR. This is the scenario that caused BI on my OLED. Admittedly, my OLED is a 2016 E6, and doesn't have the benefit of the new panel improvements or the new software improvements (the TV detects static images and will dim the area that contains said image), so that may have made a huge difference. Don't know.
White and the other colors don't seem to be near as much a problem (though I have seen people with BI that looks to have been caused by subtitles, but not as common an issue, I don't think), so sports broadcasts and all the cable channels I watch (I rarely watch CNN) have never been an issue for me.
Nothing looks better, IMO, which makes it much harder to decide. Even after being bitten, I'm still 99% sure my next TV that I purchase next year, will be an OLED. Take what I've said, apply it to your viewing habits and hopefully it helps in the decision making.
