I recently bought the new Zenbook OLED laptop and I noticed color banding all over the place. The issue is most noticeable on dark scenes basically ruining entire experience when watching movies or even youtube. I compared the screen at home to my OLED LG C1 and IPS screens on my desktop and the banding basically does not exist there and the gradation is smooth.

The details in the dark shades on the Zenbook are non existent. There is no smooth gradation. The blacks are completely crushed. Changing the brightness of the screen makes it look even worse completely unwatchable.

I bought the laptop for the OLED screen but it looks like it was completely wrong choice.

I wouldn't say this is normal in a laptop for 1100 euro.

I am not using HDR (it looks even worse) and my colors are set to 10bit.

Is there anything I can do here or should I just return the laptop?
