55inch TVs- help me decide

Hi all, I'm wanting a new tv for the bedroom.
I just purchased today a 55inch LG UP8000 but it has severe edge bleeding and upon further reading seams common so I'm going to take it back.

Was looking at the below, unless you have any other recommendations? Won't be gaming on it just movies

Sony 55-inch X95H
Sony 55-inch XR X90J
LG 55" BX

    Samsung QLED Neo. Same contrast as OLED with the colours and brightness as LCD.

    Any reason why you don't want to go bigger? 75's are hitting a nice price point nowadays.

    My experience having owned a 55" x9500g that had serious and ongoing quality issues (plus Sony Australia's lethargic, to the point of needing to chase them at every, single, step of the returns process, customer "service") and then changing to a LG C1.

    We use the TV predominantly for Broadcast content and for content that doesn't need the Big Screen Experience.
    We have a projector for Movies.

    The upscaling on the LG is SIGNIFICANTLY better than the Sony.
    Broadcast TV looks so much better it's like switching from SD to HD, except it's 1080i upscale to 4K done poorly versus done right.
    For example, News tickers on the Sony were grainy with specks of grey interspersed throughout the white background of the ticker, on the OLED they're sharp and free of noise.

    Motion handling is better on the OLED. players legs when they run was blurred on the Sony, but not a problem on the OLED.

    Sound quality is excellent from the C1 OLED. I have ours wall mounted on an arm so the TV cuts the corner of our room (not ideal for audio), but it's excellent and better than the Sony LCD.

    Blooming is a problem on the Sony. Anyone who says otherwise has Local Dimming turned off or sight issues. It was observable in a room with the lights on and stood out in a dark room.
    I honestly don't understand how people consider Local Dimming a feature, it's literally causing more problems than it solves unless you never watch anything that has darker scenes.
    Scoring an extra point of black level with one blocky grey square versus having a consistent (very dark grey) black level across the entire screen feels like a downgrade to me. Somebody from marketing came up with that idea, not an engineer.

    The plusses for the Sony/LCD are;
    Android/GoogleTV will always have better app support (especially as the TV ages and manufacturers drop support), you can always sideload "unsupported" apps to Android.
    Brightness, but this will really only be a problem for outdoors or if you don't have curtains/blinds. OLED brightness is not a problem in a room with the lights on or indirect daylight. If you have a window behind your seating position, and no blind/curtains, you're going to have reflection issues no matter what the screen technology. Maybe change the layout of your lounge room.
    Black Crush - OLED's major downfall. If you watch a lot of dark content, pick your poison, Black Crush, Blooming or Grey Blacks (in my opinion, it's only a choice between Black Crush or Grey blacks)
