I have a 4K TV without HDR. I got it for free(semi long story) , and I noticed a massive improvement.

My new tv does hdr 10 and I can't stand it. Any part of the screen with light in it is so bright that it's like looking at the sun. The rest of the screen is so dark that you literally can't see anything. Even turning the contrast down to 30 and the black level up to 70 does nothing. When you watch a movie, all the people look like sillouettes against a blooming blinding mess of light. My picture isn't much better with hdr off. I guess I'll try turning off all the black and contrast settings. I can't even tell any difference between 4k and 1080p. I can't understand the appeal of these pitch dark black levels where you can't see anything or any detail. What a waste of $1000.

Yes, sounds like you probably have it way off. I'd reset that Tvs settings to default and do the setup fom scratch.

No it isn't mandatory.
But if you're buying a 4k set make sure it can do HDR.

of course it's not mandatory but it's a waste of money to buy a 4k tv without it
