It wouldn’t be a pitch black room FWIW, there’d be some ambient lighting. Also, is there significant blooming with Local Dimming set to high and Shadow Detail reduced? I’m hoping not!
Well 10 feet away ur not gonna notice the slight screendoor that seems prominent on the 9 series ( since 2017 that I've noticed) not sure if its the direct LED mention or how the matrix/grid layout is. As far as darks they're still nice, though I read that due to the wide viewing angles it drops contrast a bit, but still has more than the 8. Granted if ur sitting that far back the minor things won't bother u at all since as I was saying earlier its sorta faded and only prominent at angles in a dark room ( no lights ), so should be fine w/ either.

Mainly for the reason mentioned above but Fake or not I still love the way it made things look (personally)
Since u mentioned 2018 and not 2019, I'm guessing it was removed last year then, since we own the 2017 and 2018 models in our house mainly, skipped on the 2019 when no hdmi 2.1 was mentioned. It made anime gorgeous as heck, and most netflix 4k types <3 I miss it.
As for what we watch, its mostly Kdramas, Anime, and games + occasional youtube, and mostly kids movies since I have 2, so punchy colors really looks nice on the stuff we bring in.
For me personally I play mostly MMO's on it that have vibrant colors that REALLY pop on these TV's, especially fashion related stuff, costumes, etc , I love it!
Now its just Dynamic or standard ( no movie or anything else ) and oddly dynamic has less of a range or feels limited in comparison to standard, so its basically up to proper white point calibration PER application source to dial it into what I want. It's always sad/annoying when options are removed, narrowing down the capabilities ( despite how some may feel / see them ) freedom of choice is nice.
