Do take into consideration your distance as well.
My sitting position is around 250cm from the TV.
With the 65" TV, watching Japanese anime and Korean variety/dramas are already on the edge of watchable due to the subtitle size and positioning not being easy for the eyes to look up and down with as compared to a smaller size TV. So something to consider when going for a bigger screen. I wanted to go bigger because I love the immersion but man... watching anime, and Korean shows like Running Man, I am glad I can modify the subtitle size for some shows depending on the website. (I watch my overseas shows on Viu or Netflix. So nothing illegal )

So take into consideration whether you have platforms that allow you to make it easier for you to watch and read subtitles without having you to move away from the video itself just to be able to read the subtitle from a huge screen. It's not fun at all and quite distracting since you'll miss the scenes as you are reading the subtitle from one end of the TV to the other if the subtitle is big or too small and low on the screen from the scene. It's some of the annoyances I experience ever since getting a bigger screen while still having that same distance.
Haha I see... I am thinking of 65 inch oled also or 82 inch...
Actually I am fluent in Japanese and I watch anime/Japanese movies/shows without subtitles.

I am learning Korean now as well.... but thanks for the advice!
Your advice applies to other shows from foreign countries as well.
In that case would you have gone smaller like 55?

Sure you can get an 8k TV, if money is no object and all your sources are UHD material..
The 8K tv can do upscaling one mah

If you search online you'll see that every panel is IPS except the 82". It's very interesting...
It may be the reason why the contrast is so good on the 82"..

It's not uncommon - my 75" Sony Z9D has a different source compared to the 65" and a superior screen.

Garbage in garbage out dude... you canít make silk purses out of pigs ears ..
Sending a 480p signal into a 8k tv can be very painful to watch..

thanks for the input guys.
think i will go for the LG over samsung because of the 100hz over 60hz.
i made a mistake. the samsung is actually 120hz. got quoted 3549 for it with free mounting and installation from gc.
however saw reviews saying the viewing angle is pretty bad. will try it out in store see how.

Yeah Samsung 82Ē viewing angle very bad.
Saw LG 82Ē viewing angle better. Saw both tv at GC amk.
Color wise LG win slightly better when playing the same YouTube video. Felt more contrast n less whitish.
Design wise I will say Samsung look better due to frameless design.

I watch it at best, very rough image and no details, display like 2D, no depth. Better buy sharp 70inch aquos led, for the picture quality and price.
