I've been looking to upgrade TVs recently and have really gotten wrapped around the axle. I could use some opinions/guidance.
I currently have a 55" Samsung H6350 from 2014. My living room is normally of average brightness I would guess. Several windows perpendicular with blinds/plantation shutters to give a diffuse light. I spend my time with a solid mix of gaming(PS5, Switch), streaming content(Hulu, Netflix, Prime and HBO).
The primary contenders are a Samsung QN90A, LG C1, or Sony A80j -- 65" preferred.
I have not seen the Sony screen in person but it gets great reviews for picture quality -- lacks in gaming features for some reason.
The LG C1 and QN90A I have compared in person and watched a great deal of reviews for. Best Buy would not, however, allow me to change the demo content. What was displayed looked outstanding on both. The brightness of the QN90A made it stand out more, but I understand this comes at the cost of potentially losing detail due to the dimming zones. It is difficult to track down numbers for my 2014 TV, but it looks like the C1 has brightness levels comparable to or greater than my current Samsung(~212cd/m2 for the Samsung and SDR ranging from 130-412cd/m2 depending on the window size for the C1).
I have some concerns over OLED burn in but understand it is probably not a realistic concern on the C1 with normal use.
I can get the QN90A for $1600 and the OLEDs are currently ~$2100.
Sorry this post has rambled, but I've been stuck on this for a few weeks. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Thank for the input. Went with the LG c1. Have only had it a few hours and am happy so far. The setup was unpleasant-- the TV is heavy(~90 lbs) and feels so fragile. The base is also not the greatest(old stand had clearance for my soundbar and swiveled).
The size and resolution upgrade are astounding.
