Samsung 65KS9502 keep or return?


Novice Member

I bought a week ago a Samsung KS9502 and first impressions were quite good.
But a few days ago i discovered that if i set the option SMART LED OFF, some clouding or patches of light are quite visible on black backgrounds. In all reviews that i read is mentioned that SMART LED should be LOW for SDR and HIGH for HDR. And with these settings (low or high) i dont have this issues at all.
My question is:

Is this a general issue because of LED tehnology and local dimming (Smart LED option) is a must or i have a faulty TV and those patches of light should not be visible even if Smart LED is off?
Should i return the TV and ask for a replacement?

First 2 pictures are almost the same image but with Smart LED on low and then off.
