I have unlocked my BL and to be honest I can't tell any difference with X-reality deactivated. But I mostly use QuickPic to view photos and MX Player for videos. I do not regret unlocking.

There is a difference but sadly is not always for the best from my previous experience.
Some things look very nice, almost HD like but very bad video quality for example just seems to look even worst lol

Totally agree, on the whole I have it disabled because of this. The benefits aren't good enough to warrant it IMHO.

Just making it clear, I unlocked my BL and rooted my XZU but I can still see X-Reality. Is it simply not working or it's supposed to be not there, even?

It'll still show the option - but it won't actually be in effect because of lost DRM keys.
