- You won't see any burn in for awhile unless you have your brightness max and screen on for 8+ hours a day. Amoled is so advanced now, you don't even have to worry about it. I've had my s3 for a year now and i still don't have any burn in, and that's with an older version of the display.

- Blue was on the Corners of my white p phone when dragged the touch screen? I doubt that at a color can impact it, who knows.

From wiki:The organic materials used in AMOLED displays are prone to degradation over a period of time, resulting in color shifts as one color fades faster than another, image persistence or burn-in.07-03-2013 12:27 PM
- Yes, it's a known problem with samsung AMOLED screens. Happened on s2 and s3 too. It's one reason why some manufactures don't use AMOLED anymore. For example, it's why HTC switched to using Super LCD screens. Remember all the burn-in problems with the Nexus 1 screen? It's one reason why I dumped my s4 and will not buy a phone with AMOLED screens. The colors aren't accurate anyway. There are much better technologies.
Burn-in happens faster with static images displaying on the screen over periods of time, which is often why the status bar is the first thing that appears, but generally with "normal" use most users won't ever even notice any effects of burn-in, especially if you tend to keep your phone no longer than the standard 18-24 months that seems to be the norm nowadays.
To the OP -- I wouldn't worry too much about how "blue" your wallpapers are, but if you are worried about burn-in effects, perhaps have a few wallpapers on rotation and change them from time to time...heck I tend to do that anyway just so I don't get bored looking at the same thing all the time.07-03-2013 03:08 PM

- I use my phone as a alarm clock at night which displays the time. I use gentle alarm which has a burn in protection deal which basically moves the digits on the screen every minute. Is that enough to prevent burn in on the screen.

- Different screens burn in differently. For example; plasma burns in differently than AMOLED. Most screens need a static image but AMOLED does not. It is organic and therefore will naturally degrade over a period of time. What happens to AMOLED is technically not a burn-in, all though it's commonly called that. It's more of a shifting in colors. The end result is the same thing (you'll need to replace the screen) but the way it occurs is usually different. Here is a picture of what it will look like. Hope that helps.07-04-2013 12:04 AM
- Depends on how the phone is used. The OP asked if it was an real issue and it is, even you have agreed to that. Again, this is why some manufactures have moved away from AMOLED.
How is it that you know how everyone is going to use their phone? You cannot say that it won't happen, because it does happen, and AMOLED is known for this issue. Will every single person experience it? Of course not, but that's not the question at hand. AMOLED screens are organic, and therefore degrade over a period of time, resulting in color shifts. Thats all the OP was asking.
I don't know how everyone is going to use their phone, that's why I stated examples of where burn in is noticed... it doesn't change the fact that only rare owners of AMOLED screen phones actually experience it, or at least report it.

- while I was fondling the demo unit, I notice that there was a ghost image just under the surface of the display. Regardless of app or orientation it was there. The letters read S Beam with two back to back phones featured just below that. At first, I thought it was some sort of in-store watermark, but then it hit me. The S3′s Super Amoled screen was suffering from screen burn in. After hours of running in-store demo software that continually promoted the S Beam feature, the image was permanently burned into the screen. Not good. link
I really hope that samsung wises up like the other companies already have and moves away from AMOLED screens. There really is no reason to use them anymore, and many reasons not to since there are much better screen technologies around today.07-04-2013 01:08 AM
Unfortunately, it sounds like the Moto X phone will use a AMOLED panel too.07-04-2013 03:45 AM
- My galaxy nexus started to get burn in from under a year of use and with just using auto brightness. It was quite noticeable when watching a full screen video when there was a lot of white on the screen. You could make out the entire section where the on screen buttons would normally be. So this want a case of a static image but that those particular pixels were rarely used compared to the rest of the screen.

- Anything is possible, but highly unlikely. Use whatever wallpaper you want and enjoy your device. Think about it, if Super Amoled screens are that prone to burn in you wouldn't have to ask this question because would already have heard the answer from millions upon millions of people screaming bloody murder at the tops of their lungs about this.07-04-2013 09:42 AM
- Samsung makes AMOLED, so they have a pretty strong interest in keeping it alive.SLCD/IPSLCD is far superior to AMOLED regarding clarity, color temperature, whites, brightness etc. It doesn't have the crazy contrast of AMOLED, but you give up so much (aforementioned features) its not worth it.07-04-2013 12:13 PM

- Angel is really hopped up about the problems with Amoled screens, but he really doesn't provide any evidence that this is a widespread problem. Samsung sold what, 40 million S3s? Where are the millions of owners complaining about burn-in? Nowhere, is the answer, because it's not a major issue.07-04-2013 10:46 PMLike 2
