Having found a chink in the TV’s picture armour, I also need to discuss a couple more. The biggest issue (considering this TV’s premium status) is the appearance of faint backlight blooming and blocking around objects during extremely high-contrast HDR scenes. This can extend over quite large parts of the image at times, as you’d expect from the relatively limited number of dimming zones the TV deploys. In fact, it’s probably a testament to Samsung’s outstanding dimming system management that the backlight blooming isn’t more pronounced.
That said, its impact occasionally distracts during high-contrast scenes that contain a lot of motion. And if you’re watching a wider than 1.85:1 aspect ratio film, the blooming effect can momentarily creep into the black bars above and below the picture”
