So my current 4K TV has HDR and local dimming. The local dimming in this particular model is edge lit it still works but it's not really good. Anyway when ever I play a HDR game my TV automatically increases my back-light at a very high setting. Which basically makes the TV really bright. But I've read before where this is normal for HDR to work. Well I find it uncomfortable when the TV is this bright. So in the end I turned off the HDR setting and the weak local dimming.

So do all 4K TV's even the high-end ones with good HDR and good local dimming will turn up the back-light to a higher setting when playing HDR games ?

I'd hate to buy a really nice 4K TV and the back-light changes on me all the time and being too bright and in the end have to turn off those features.

By the way I have a PS4 and a Xbox one x.
