I didn't say it was. I said in terms of good HDR it's what's more important. To you, better picture quality may be more important than better HDR.

For me LCD look like a fake picture... I mean when I am in the dark and watching a movie on an LCD, I don't feel amazed at all, for me it is the same old sh*t
But when I am watching a movie on an OLED, especially in the dark.. I can truly enjoy the amazing picture, and with perfect blacks, I feel like I am getting immersed in movies.. yeah Oled have few flaws, but it is way too easy to overlook them, because you are stunned by the amazing picture.. you get like the real life looking like picture.. but with LCD you get the fake life, or rather flawed life with glitches looking like picture...
So no, for me higher nits doesn't justify going back to crap LCD...
A lot of people say this, but it is true... Once you go Oled you can never go back to anything inferior like LCD!
I have a plasma right now (still waiting to buy my OLED), which is nearly as good as OLED in terms of black levels, so I know what you mean. I can easily tell the difference, but my 930d still gets nearly perfect blacks with SDR content in most situations when calibrated properly including good local dimming. In HDR obviously raised blacks are more noticeable as the backlight increases to display those bright highlights, so the negatives of the tech are definitely noticeable there, but in terms of delivering what I want from HDR, the LED set does a fantastic job. 1000 nit highlights really is something to be in awe of, just like perfect blacks are. It's just a matter of pros and cons. Both techs have positives and negatives. With OLED you get perfect blacks and better color, but you're limited in how bright the highlights can go, especially when those highlights take up a larger portion of the screen, so HDR is limited. On LED while blacks can get really dark, they're still not perfect, but you are able to get much brighter highlights, which really shows off what HDR has to offer.
OLED can do better HDR in really dark scenes with small bright highlights, such as exterior night shots although they're still limited in terms of peak brightness, so you're not going to get 1000-2000 nit neon signs in the background or anything, but it will still look pretty good.
LED can do better HDR in scenes that have larger highlights, and a higher overall median brightness to the scene, such as daytime shots, such as the bridge fight in deadpool, some interior shots such as the ones from Iron Fist I mentioned above, where bright outdoor light shines in, or night shots where the highlights are larger on screen, such as scenes with a large bright fire, or something like times square or the las vegas strip where there is a lot of bright lighting everywhere.
But ultimately, it's about what's more important to you. For a lot of people here I would assume good PQ is more important at the expense of what could have been better HDR. However, it is important to recognize what you may be missing out on. HDR was designed for highlights in the 1000-10,000 nit range, and OLEDs just can't do that yet. Those bright highlights are, by definition, what that extended dynamic range is all about, so you are missing out despite getting better PQ because of it.
But if ABL was done away with, OLEDs would have every advantage.
