    I dont seem to notice a difference with HDR on my TV, in fact it looks less saturated, I tend to prefer saturation for movies.

    Is OLED more of a punch for watching movies etc than HDR?

    HDR is for taking pictures, it doesn't do anything once the video's been made. (It increases the detail in dark areas and decreases the exposure in bright areas. You can't do that after the picture's been recorded - there are no details in dark areas to increase, and flare from a bright light is still going to be flare.)

    OLED is just the technology of the screen - many other screen types are also good for viewing videos. Any kind of LED screen will give you black, backlighted screens (like LCD) won't, jet blacks will be really dark grey, but not black. But for watching a movie, you're not really paying attention to the screen quality. Watching a terrible movie on an OLED screen is worse than watching a great movie on an LCD screen.

    I almost commented something similar yesterday but I got to looking around and then I wondered if the OP was asking if having a good OLED display was better than having an OLED display that plays HDR. They are kind of connected but not comparable. I also wanted to say that AMOLED was better for colors the way the OP was describing the color they wanted but then realized that this is the TV section and I don't know if they make an AMOLED TV display. LOL.

    Ha no it was meant to be in the phone section.

    Yep I know what HDR is, Im a photographer, mostly underwater with an A7R3 body.

    Ok what I mean is, clearly LCD panels look more washed out than OLEDs on PHONES, also HDR on Netflix offers something, as to how good it is I dont know and if an LCD with HDR will look better than an OLED without HDR on a PHONE panel?

    Because of the blacker blacks on LEDs. LCD brightness has to be kept lower, or blacks will start looking light grey.

    Since HDR is being done when the picture is being taken - and film has a much higher dynamic ratio than CCDs - you really have no control over that. If they shoot in film, and light-paint the shadows, the dynamic range shoots way up. All you see - on either type of screen - is that rather than just a black shadow, you see a darker area, but with easily seen details in it.

    As far as moving your thread, we don't have a "screen type" forum.
