Netflix and Amazon HDR dark on Samsung 4k TV

Have a Samsung ku6300 series 4k TV. It's HDR capable even though it doesn't have wide color gamut. Problem is, whenever I stream HDR content from Netflix or Amazon it looks dark; broad daylight looks like early morning for example. I'm afraid to buy a 4k BD player because I worry HDR discs will look the same way. Is there a fix? Thanks.

What is your Backlight for regular viewing?
HDR won't look great since it is a 400 Nit TV. But if you can watch regular tv at low Backlight like 6/20, you'll notice that HDR will be an improvement when it ramps up to 20/20.

With this tv, it's very under powered. You'll need to use dynamic contrast on medium or high and also bump up your gamma. Make sure smart. Led is on high if you have that also. If these don't work, you'll be stuck with dark hdr forever. You'll need a brighter TV unfortunately.
