There are two things in play here.

White uniformity and Edge enhancement.

White Uniformity:
Not a lot you can do about it. It's a lottery. Each display can be different.
Fortunately for me, mine its freaking near perfect. Or good enough for me.
If you don't have a good example there are things you can do to hide the issue.
Don't over blow brightness or contrast. Lower brightness settings. I'm a strong believer that you shouldn't run displays at their peak. Just a little less.
I have mine on mid-peak brightness and set on 40 out of 50 on the brightness setting.
When the display ages and loses a bit of brightness it then gives you options to raise the brightness.
You do need a test disc that displays full field white to see what is going on.

Edge enhancement:
Yuck! Turn those edgy things off. Use reality creation at lower settings. Turn sharpness down. I do see a lot of edgys in your image.
Test disc will help to set sharpness.

I hope I'm not too blunt. I'm in a weird mood.

No worries. Be blunt.

Edit: I had this calibrated at Value Electronics. After speaking to Robert this morning I have faith that this issue has developed post calibration/QC. Per Robert's request I am filing a claim with Sony.

I will double check to make sure edge enhancement settings weren't accidentally engaged somehow. Is it possible the Kino Lorber disc menu itself has those artifacts built in? Also, is it maybe the compression encode of my cellphone camera causing that piece?

The white balance is definitely out of whack. Thanks for giving me the terminology.

It's very frustrating. All black & white content has that same gradient towards blue on the left side of the panel.

Thanks for taking a look btw. Truly appreciated.
You're not crazy my friend...looking at the very bottom of the display it appears the right side of the display is brighter. Then as you move to the left it gradually loses some luminance and picks up a blue hue. Unless there is other light in the room that is responsible for this then I see what you mean.

You could try a manual pixel refresh but I'm not sure that would really help.
Uniformity issues suck because once you see it you can't unsee it. If you are really sensitive to uniformity I'd say go with one of Samsungs QD OLED panels (Samsung S95B, S90C, S95C or Sony A95K, A95L) because are reportedly more uniform with hardly any tinting.

Personally, and this may not be true I don't know. But my theory is that you need to buy flagships when they launch or shortly thereafter. The most amount of QC from the factory is put in at that time.

Is there a setting to adjust the low-batt warning for the remote? Mine always pops up after approximately a month, but then the batteries last much much longer than that before I actually have to change them.
