    Got a new phone recently and came back to watch this on HDR. It does look cool. I don't know if I'm blown away exactly but the difference is definitely obvious. Then again, I'm not sure how well my phone's screen compares to a high end TV.

    My 4K set is budget priced, so I just assumed that the display settings for my TV were basic. It didn't come with a user's manual. So I wasn't blown away with how it displayed a HDR picture. Today I was messing around with the settings and stumbled upon the settings to tweak the image. Finally, I see what all the fuss is about.

    HDR offer to cover 70% of colorimetric spectre of human visibility (1 billion colors) instead of 30% for SDR (65 millions colors), and i can see all newbies only focus and thinking than HDR is "light" effects and nits power…
    HDR add more colors shade (a lot) and so add more realistics colors. A HDR scene have more presence than SDR.
    Last but no least, forget HDR on LCD who is far from OLED and dont fall in samsung trap with QLED who is a old tech you using already (LCD).

    Resident Evil 2 has a horrible colour filter over everything for some reason. Makes dark areas look grey rather than black and colours have a weird green hue.

    Whilst Xbox One X and PS4 Pro users are unfortunately stuck with it, but there are PC mods that remove it giving much more natural looking colours and dark areas can actually be black in areas with no light, just as they should be rather than just being grey.
