Unfortunately I don't have a UHD player. (I'm too cheap to invest in a player and discs, but maybe later? I'm more of a a streamer)
Regarding the tilting, maybe it's normal ?
Its noticeably brighter than the B6. I've used the HDR effect on medium setting for SDR content, and find it enjoyable. It makes the content pop a lot more, it's visually stimulating that once turned off makes the prior SDR content appear dull. It's really bright to use in a dark room though because the OLED light is maxed out, and it does introduce dithering/noise to black scenes.
I'm hoping the tilt isn't normal, as it's irritating and noticeable from my seated position. Time will tell once other owners get their set. I'm not sure whether I should call LG to ask about the tilt..

So far, I think I actually prefer the 5% uniformity of your B6. Pretty mild right side 'zipper' vignetting compared to some of the examples posted here.
Nope. Not running it yet. I didn't have any dead pixels on my B6 to begin, but after running multiple compensation cycles, I noticed a dead pixel. I read somewhere that if you run too many compensation cycles. it can result in dead pixels ? Not proven though. I do know that the streaking effect got better with compensation cycles though. The right side "zipper" effect hasn't been noticed in normal content. It's hard to tell which is better in terms of screen uniformity, but the overall better picture quality (brightness and shadow detail) makes the screen uniformity a non-issue for me
I can now have shadow detail without having to raise the black level, so the screen looks like it's floating when watching in the dark with true black borders. (at least for now..

Actually compared to my B6, the borders are a matte black, and there's not much contrast between the borders which is AWESOME. I didn't really like the silver tone on the edge of borders of the B6. The screen is also thinner, as it's display bonded on metal. Similar to display on glass of the E and G series. The B6 appears thicker due to the glass being encased rather than bonded.
