Folks, let me tell you that the 2019 panels are not much better with screen uniformity than 2018 best I can tell so far. If you purchase an OLED you still need to accept the fact that you will see some magenta tinting with content with certain colors near the edges if you start looking for it but you should be able to get a set with minimal banding which shouldn't be plainly visible with content. This is just the way OLED is right now. Banding is minimal enough that it will dissipate as you put time on the TV and the panel's pixels randomize. So far I've seen this on the Sony's and the LG's since they use the same panel and you can open and look at 10 sets, for example, and there is no "hidden" one that's perfect. The only observation is the 55's have less issues than the 65's but that's always been the case over the years.
At the end of the day, LCDs also have their own uniformity issues but with OLED you get an outstanding picture with near perfect blacks which will overshadow any technological screen uniformity issues. From my experience, once you understand this, you begin to focus on the center of the screen as you watch TV and you brain tends to compensate for these anomalies.
I expect screen uniformity to be an issue until LG Display makes more significant advancements in their panel technology.
