LG C9 or Sony A8G for PQ

Hello Everyone,

I am looking for advice on which OLED to choose. I just picked up the C9 and I already have the C6, but I am wondering if I should return the C9 for the Sony A8G. They are both the same price right now. My issue with the C9 is that it is just like my C6 with motion handling.
Most times it is OK, but then other time the Jutter can be really disturbing, especially with 24 or 30 fps content. I usually turn of there "User" motion controls because I can't stand the SOE. I also dislike their True Cinema option On as I think that causes motion trails and try to turn it off whenever possible. Unfortunately, they grey it out as 'On' on a lot of their HDR picture modes, which drive me crazy. I have learned to deal with the occasional bad judder as a compromise.
My question is, are the A8G picture and motion handling much better than the C9 that it would be worth returning it for. I do realize that I would be giving up the future support like HDMI 2.1, eARC, Variable Refresh, and Low Latency gaming. I just don't want to do it if the motion handling is not that much better. Does anyone feel that the Sony would greatly improve my viewing experience?
