Noticed this white spot on my 4k Samsung TV. Time to buy a new TV or just live with it?

n1gga posting pics of a white spot on a bright background. Put on a scary movie that's mostly dark and take a pic. I can't even see what he's talking about unless he circles it

It’s hard to see on camera especially with a dark background. Its very subtle but it’s definitely noticeable in person though.

Looks like a flashlight. Bothers the sh1t out of me.

If you know, you know.

You end up getting another Samsung?

I am torn. Some people say Sony has the best TVs and Samsung is trash, but others say the complete opposite.
Yeah re upped to the updated version of the TV from Costco got 5yr warranty so that's the only reason really. Plus the picture was the best outta my options.

Most the dudes in this thread with "bad quality" Samsung sets most likely have their TV still the default picture settings or have a cheap Samsung, or both.

Not surprised though. Most people don't get their TVs calibrated. These are also the same people who think sound bars are a worthy purchase.

No problem.

Let me know if you find a good deal. Eyeing a 65” as well.

Question is: OLED worth the extra money?

Well I've had Samsung for years and realized that it depends on the model, I will say Sony are die hards tho they stand the test of time out of four Samsung's I've had two problems and the extended warranty got me thru nice....I like Samsung cause it's easy to stream from my phone cause I have Samsung phones....but I think Sony has the better picture overall

You can get a 65 “ for $400-$500
Back n the days 50” $2200
That's true but it you're a gamer then I think having that 2.1 hdmi is a must. So you might have to pay a little bit more

2 episodes in and I’m liking it.

Good to hear because I been hearing a lot of people disappointed. I think they are making the mistake of comparing it with Season 1.
yeah its not fair comparing that at all bro. season 1 is goated!! but season 4 kept me very interested even tho the last episode was a little meh but I really do not understand the hate its getting to be honest.

Samsung is known for bright vivid colors while Sony is known for more natural looking colors. Sony all day for me.

I bought a Hisense h9g a few years ago from Best Buy and I never get warranties but something told me to get the geek squad bs. Fast forward a year later and I have vertical dots on my screen where I guess a row of backlight went out, not bad, I have to point it out to people and only noticeable on a blank canvas.

Call geek squad, buddy comes out, I’m straight up with him and tell him I’m just looking to get my money back and get a better TV. He hooks me up and says the panel isn’t repairable and the tv needed to be thrown out. Best Buy reimbursed me and I bought a Sony x90j. I love the Sony 4k120. Hisense is now the bedroom tv. I’ll be buying TVs through Best Buy going forward.

Just dropped 2 stacks on the Sony A80CL OLED 65”

So happy right now. The colors look absolutely amazing.

Sony is the way to go they use better processing but you gotta also compare models that go against each other vs the other brands. I would go with Sony 90 series and higher.

Tizen is slow and meh now compared to Google TV

Samsung tvs do get really bright but I don’t like how they use the backlighting system compared to Sony on the LCD TVs.

From what I hear it's never worth trying to repair a TV. If you don't like it just buy a new one
Nahhhhh bro. This chick TV just blew out out of nowhere. I looked the model up online and hella ppl had the same problem. It was a little piece. I'm calling around trying to find it and these mfers automatically saying 100 bucks. I'm like, for the piece? They like, we don't sell the piece, 100 to fix it... ended up getting the piece off Amazon. 3 in the pack for 20 bucks. Used one. Asked her super for a soldering iron and did it myself. Took no time once I had the piece. No idea what's wrong with bro sh1t here but I would at least look to see if it could be fixed. I'm just like that though. You might be right, might not be worth the effort to bro

Worth every penny. Trust me.

Before upgrading, I never really watched TV like that except for sports and shows here and there. I'm more of a YouTube and podcast guy.

This OLED TV is so amazing that it revived my interest to watch shows and movies again. I'm excited now everyday to watch it.

OLED is a game changer.

As someone who had a Samsung TV for over a decade, the Sony interface is so much better. Hella smooth.

I understand why Sony is priced at a mark up compared to the other companies. It's been #1 for a reason.

No regrets switching.

I wouldn't be surprised. Most of these bigger companies practice planned obsolescence. I don't think most people are comfortable soldering.
