If I can get ONE person to not waste their money on a monitor that isn't up to par, i'm fine with that. The Samsung has a 240Hz refresh rate, a much quicker response time, and it supports HDR. This new gen VA is a great improvement no doubt, but to say it generally beats similar IPS isnt true. Very good for multimedia consumption. When it comes to flicker, i really didn't notice it in rocket league and in doom, i saw it in the menus. On the other hand, the AOC has better out-of-the-box color accuracy and it has fairly wide viewing angles, especially for a VA panel monitor. so basically, MYSELF and hardware unboxed confirm black level smearing at 240hz.

Its picture quality is very good as it has a great contrast ratio, good out-of-the-box color accuracy, and an outstanding color gamut.
However, the Dell has better ergonomics, it has wider viewing angles, and its response time at its max refresh rate is better too. You can see the backlight bleed in this high-exposure photo. I also like the deep blacks. For entertainment, i agree it's a fun monitor to use. It did the same thing without VRR enabled, and when the image was at any other size than 100% scaling, the brightness went back up. The curve is a niche market, I personally like it but others do not. Please make sure that you are posting in the form of a question. And when i talk about performance, it's more so to do with input lag. .
Say for example you use a 240hz panel on a fixed 60hz refresh, the input lag at 60hz refresh will be horrendous due to the different scan times velocity and fast frame movements. The 10-bit HDR input lag was measured over HDMI, which is limited to 144Hz because we can't measure HDR input lag over a DisplayPort connection. There are only a handful of vertical dimming zones and the zone transitions are very visible when each zone lights up. so that you can compare the results easily.
G-sync is USELESS if the FPS is constantly at 240hz, and even then i still wouldn't use it because it adds too much input lag. The Samsung Odyssey G7 is great for media creation.

The Samsung Odyssey G7 has fairly thin borders which aren't distracting. As all of these tests are consistent, we're confident in our measurements. The input lag at 60Hz increases a bit with VRR enabled, but this shouldn't be a problem for most people. over all this thing is fantastic. But what i don't like the most is the black level smearing and input lag.
Although it doesn't have wide viewing angles like some of the 240Hz monitors with an IPS panel we've seen, like the ASUS VG279QM, most people should be happy with this monitor.

I don't have that ISSUE with any of my IPS monitors that i've owned. Given that other reviews have found much lower contrast, there seems to be a significant variance in contrast between different units. Here's my opinion. Why you so desperate to bash this monitor? Note that this contrast ratio is much higher than Samsung's advertised 2500:1 contrast, and there appears to be significant variance in contrast between units.
