I stand by my post from yesterday.
1. OLEDs have had incremental improvements over the years. Most people would agree that the 2019 OLEDs (such as the A9G and C9) and the 2020 OLEDs (such as the CX and A8H) are better than the 2017 OLEDs such as the E7. I'm not saying everyone needs to upgrade their display every 2-3 years (I upgrade mine every 8 years) since the improvements are more incremental than revolutionary. And yes, we are all entitled to our opinions. But I don't think you will find many people arguing that the 2017s are better than the current lineup.
2. The main point of my post was that OLEDs need many hours to break in. That's why we should never calibrate them until after at least 100 hrs. The E7 owner was sending the A8H back the day after getting it. Barring a defective panel, that is not giving the new display sufficient time to see what it is capable of. That is a fact, not an opinion.
