I bought a 55C8 this black friday, it was finally time to retire my 10 year old Sharp Aquos LC46DH77. The picture the OLED produces is nothing short of outstanding, love HDR content showing a clear sky with stars. Incredible. But i have noticed some inconsistency's in the brightness/contrast on the left side compared to the right side of the screen. So I googled and found this forum and read about the uniformity issues regarding OLEDs and downloaded the grey slides in one of your threads and discovered that the screen is not even.
I wanted to ask you guys how bad you think it is since Im new to OLEDs. Also I found a dead pixel located at, or near, one of the dark "blops". As far as I'm aware it wasn't there when i received the tv. Since it is located at one of the problem areas, is this just a coincidence? Could it be sign on more pixels dying in the future?
I will attach some pictures taken from my brothers P20 PRO, they are not the best thanks to the ridiculous beautify filter built into the camera software.
I used the recommended settings: isf Dark Room OLED light at 35, contrast 85 and brightness at 50.
I apologize for the bad quality, the pics are very bright on the right side on the 5% grey slides. In real life the screen is not that white, but they still demonstrate the problem. I took a couple pics of Marco Polo and Mindhunters, notice the left side how there seem to be more contrast and where the right side almost looks washed out.
