Guess I can always load up apps on both to compare or go to the XBOX Forums and ask around for that.
Glad to hear it's mid-30ms for HDR gaming too. Was afraid "regular gaming" would be mid-30s and if you enabled HDR it'd jump up to over 50ms. I'm a big gamer so you just gave me a big exhale.
I probably would've waited for 2017 models if one of them had 3D. Granted I never use 3D now but just having the option sounds great. Especially if tv manufacturers stop making them. It'll be like holding onto a piece of expired tech.
For 3D can you only watch 3D movies in 3D or can you hit a button and convert whatever you're watching into 3D? Sorry for all the questions...you know that nervous/excited feeling about spending a good chunk of change on a "new toy." Any HDR or 3D blu rays you recommend that will be good to show off what the tv can do?
Yeah, definitely fiddle around with the Xbox One S and the internal TV apps to see which one suits your needs. I actually don't use the magic remote for the TV app, so the motion aspect isn't relevant for me. I use a Logitech Harmony remote, so I still have to click through the menus like normal. Still works great, though!
As for Gaming, I am a gamer too. I have a Wii-U that hardly gets played much, but I also have a PS4 Pro that I use for gaming most of the time. I'm really satisfied with the gaming response time, even including for FPS, specifically for Overwatch (which isn't in HDR).
For 3D, that was the biggest reason for me to jump on the 2016 model. I only have had mine for 3+ weeks now and it is absolutely fantastic. I've been going through my collection of 3D movies and watching them again, so pretty much every night I'm using the 3D capabilities of the set.
As for your question for 3D, yes it does upconversion from 2D sources, too. While I don't really use that aspect, it's nice to have that option, for sure. I've used it a couple times while playing games and it adds a bit of depth to them, which is nice.
For HDR content, I have been watching things on Netflix and Vudu. I don't have a UHD player just yet, still waiting for Oppo to work out their kinks more on their player. I have bought a few UHDs though, some of which also include UHD digital code redemptions, as well. So if you are looking for some good content, Sully looks razor sharp and really nice in Dolby Vision. Pacific Rim and Lucy look phenomenal in 4K/DV, as well.
For 3D movies, so far I've not gone through my collection of 3D, so this is based off what I've seen so far: I think I was most impressed with Avatar, Gravity, The Walk, How to Train Your Dragon 1 & 2. I've also been pretty impressed by Ant Man and Avengers Age of Ultron in 3D and pretty much any of the animated movies, like Finding Dory, Monster's Inc, etc.
I have still yet to watch all of my 3D movies, though, so that list of really impressive movies will increase, I'm sure.
