I tested the Exodus and Life of Pi HDR demos.
On my old JS9500 I found the Life of Pi HDR demo much more impressive - The Colors popped like crazy and the Exodus demo seemed good, but rather subdued.
On this set, it seems quite the opposite. The Exodus demo looked superb, whereas the Life of Pi demo didn't seem quite as... I don't know, bursting and in your face as it did from my memory on the JS9500. I was certainly seeing more detail in the dark portions of that demo on the OLED compared to the JS9500, which probably had something to do with it.
Nevertheless, I'm pleased especially with the Exodus material - As I feel it better represents what's going to be typical live action 4K HDR content.
I may splurge and get Amazon Prime tomorrow to check out Casanova and the others (my trial period ended after I got rid of the JS9500). We'll see. I'm about to roll out for the night so probably not much more to test out today.
Hope I've been of some help to you all. I know how anxious I was to hear any nugget of info I could on this TV up until the moment I bought it, so I felt obligated to share as much (no matter how insignificant) as I could.
Just wondering why you returned the JS9500 and why the LG is so much better. I also had the JS9500 and returned it because my set had really bad blooming which was worse then what others were reporting and I assumed that maybe my set was defectiive but I never bought another to test out.
Overall I really liked the Samsung. I found the colors to be great and much better then the EC9300/ I really liked the motion on it, and with the clear setting it was really judder free with no SOE.
Also, kinda got addicted to the brightness, even though I watch in a dark room. LOL. That brightness, especially with good HDR like Casanova on Amazon really wowed me and the tonal range of the colors was greatly expanded. To me Casanova is probably the best picture I've ever seen and makes me excited for future HDR, especially UHD Bluray.
The viewing angles on the Samsung were atrocious however, and I could easily see that as a deal breaker for many.
However, I prefered the picture on the JS9500. The blacks were OK, and there was the blooming (which may have been a defect) but everything else was better on the JS9500 (motion, color, brightness, ETC)
