Not the case in my c9. No black crush or raised blacksRaised blacks.
This sony demo below reproduces the raised black issue 100% on LG.
In LG CX, it is totally not black, looks like an LED tv at best. Starts ok but falls apart after 15 seconds and continues to be this way till almost the end. So there is ample time to demonstrate rather than to pause for a 2 second scene.
Also there is quite a bit of black crush
Pic capture around 1:00 minute mark. I have captured only the bottom left since the camera normalizes if I capture full image.

Please let me know if it is the same case with C7/C8/C9, else I will just wait for the firmware upgrade.
It is not present in every video that has blacks though.
I think it is important, for a fair comparison, to post the source (inbuilt app, firestick, etc.), settings on the source and the display.
Download the latest Dolby vision demo disk. There is a demo video for deep black. If that’s over exposed then there is an issue. Not all contents are meant to be deep black. Some we may think it should be black but the creators meant for it to be grey.Btw how are u able to capture deep blacks in your camera? For me it’s impossible. For example this is the image from the DV demo disc. Except the ring the image is pitch black even the centre of the ring. But at the brightest portion the camera adds blooming and halo effect. Similarly for al images that has deep blacks and a bright object combined. Some how managed to get the black details in the other image. It doesn’t have raised black levels as in your cx.
The image I shared is from you tube only. The Ring picture is through usb.Running the video through youtube has same results?
Even if it appears like this on the youtube video, it is a bug and can come up in any number of videos in any of the apps.
I have mentioned the way to capture black above.
Should focus on the black area rather than a bright area and edges shows better because any light in the area shows the tv outline.
In real life, you should just not be able to see any tv edges. That's easy to see.
As requested taken a snap of the left bottom edge. This scene in person is not the deepest of blacks but not bad as seen in ur cxIf u have time later, post the edges the same way. Also try in pitch black.
Anyone has a CX please post. Now I want to see if it is only my tv.

I think comparing c7 with A8H is not really a good comparison for LG vs Sony Oled battle. There are a lot of improvements with the latest models. Atleast mention c7 as people shouldn’t confuse it with cx.Watched The Outpost using Apple TV 4K as source.
The image looks gorgeous on both LG and Sony. The Sony has more details in the dark opening scenes. The blues in the night are stronger too. In day light scenes, Sony has more 3D like feel to the picture without feeling processed. On LG, no amount of increase in sharpness can replicate the same look. I think the Reality Creation on Sony is doing all the magic. Default is 20 and I keep at 4 for high quality sources (thanks @BLASTO for mentioning this). Even at 50 there is hardly any side effects which is good for low quality sources.
Smooth Gradation on Sony is good to hide banding. It is a tiny bit more visible on LG.
HDR (during day time) on both are good but I feel LG offers more light output and, therefore, more pleasing and acceptable.
Without side-by-side comparison the differences are not material.
Oh yes, I am comparing C7 with A8H.I think comparing c7 with A8H is not really a good comparison for LG vs Sony Oled battle. There are a lot of improvements with the latest models. Atleast mention c7 as people shouldn’t confuse it with cx.
