    I've definitely got burn in from using Waze. My commute is around 1h30m each way so the screen is on for a very long time. Here's a screen shot pointing out the three main areas that are usually always black using Waze.

    Edit: looks like I'll need to take a photo. I may realized a screen shot won't show it.

    Thanks for the heads up. Do you usually have it in landscape mode?

    Gee that's no good Duke. I have read that OLED displays burn-in even more than plasma TV displays. All three of my TVs at home are plasma and you could play a video in an attempt to fix the burn-in problem, it's a series of alternating colours as shown on YouTube

    which looks a little bit like one of those Japanese cartoons that allegedly triggers a seizure.

    Naturally there's an app for that; dunno if it works but probably zero harm in giving it a try. Good luck!
