I've got a 55" LG oled & I have to say that 4k is the least impressive feature on it. If you put a gun to my head I can maybe tell the difference when netflix is displaying in 4k over 1080p but imo it's more marketing than material difference at this point. To really feel a tangible benefit you really need to be sitting close by & go for 65" plus.
The fact that you need a GPU 4x the power to play the same game at 4k over full HD, which for most people will result in a subtle improvement, if any at all, makes the whole thing a bit of a false dawn!
That extra power could be used for so much - it's a shame that Sony & Microsoft's hubris is finding it's target...
First of all, either your eyes are awful (perfectly possible), you got too small of a TV (the purpose of 4K is larger images at closer distances, so if you're watching a 55" from 10 feet away you're doing it wrong), or you're just lying to push an agenda.
Second, please tell me you're not gaming on that.

To have any noticeable benefit from a 55" you need to be sitting within 2m of the set, closer to 1m to see real, worthwhile gains...
For most people that's way too close. That's why I mentioned only 65+ sets starting to make sense for 4k.
I'm a graphic designer so I'm sure I'd know by now if my eyesight was on the fritz!
The original poster has a 49" so to see the dramatic gains he claims, he must be sitting with the thing in his lap...
I don't have an agenda, I just see a technology being pushed on to the mainstream which is really only meaningfully beneficial to a tiny percentage of the market...
