    S8 AMOLED screen burn in navigation buttons?-gsmarena_001-01.jpeg

    Okay so this topic might have been brought up before. Worried that the white navigation buttons which is constantly being displayed at the bottom will burn in quickly. Once AMOLED screens burn in, it's over and non-fixable. If you're owning this phone for over a year, it might burn in eventually. I've never experienced burn in on any of my Galaxy phones in the past because I'm careful not to leave the screen on too long (turn off the screen when using Google maps). But now that the navigation buttons are displayed on screen, there's a chance.

    Any long time Nexus 6 or 6P owners can comment? (Owned for at least a year)

    Example of screen burn in:

    I've been using nothing but AMOLED since 2011, never had burn in. The buttons aren't always on the display, a lot of games and video apps, photos, etc hide the buttons.

    What about web browsing? I'm always on the web browser... Like 24/7!

    By the way knock on wood my S7 so far doesn't have any burn in but I try to play the word game on my Note 2 to avoid that issue so that the only burn in it might get would be from the status bar

    Since the home button is constantly being displayed even when the device is in standby mode I bet it will have burn in!

    Maybe Samsung is aware and implemented some kind of shifting for the button, so that it will move slightly to prevent it from burn in.

    I had burn-in from the Notification Panel on my S2, Note 2 and now my Note 4. So hmmm, do you not have your display set to very bright or do you hide the Notification Bar with Nova Launcher?

    Is there no way to hide the on-screen Home Button?

    As far as I know, judging from several in depth reviews, the home button is always visible when in standby. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    I'm not sure either but I think it's always visible with the always on feature but I'm not 100% certain

    At least the always on graphic moves slightly to prevent burn in.

    Nova Prime is so awesome I still think Samsung should buy the company and use that as their launcher. I would never use an Android phone these days without Nova Prime and Tesla unread

    I always used it on my Note 3 and Moto but don't need it in my V20. It turns screens 360 back to start and has pull down arrow and double tap screen off. That's what I used to use Nova for.

    My S6 which will be 2 years old next week has had the keyboard burned in severely for the last 4 months. Although I pre-ordered the S8 + this really is a concern for me.

    Tesla unread won't be necessary soon. They're making it part of Nova so you don't need two apps.

    Badges are also going to be baked into Android O.

    That I did not know. I won't see O on my current phone though. I'll have to upgrade for that.

    Damn, I thought it was only me, got my S8 last friday, then when I removed the screen protector that comes with it coz I got my screen protector from Amazon, I notice a dot on the upper right corner on the status bar, thinking its just a dust, tried wiping it and tried using a tape coz i thought it got stack, then it never came off. is it really this bad with amoled screen? or it just samsung, had a NEXUS 6 before but never had this and currently my oneplus 3t.

    I'm sure it will burn-in. I had a Nokia Lumia 920 with the best LCD screen, bar none. Even though it was more energy intensive I liked it because of the lack of burn-in and it's speed (60Hz refresh rate IIRC). I picked up the Microsoft Lumia 950XL when it came out and while the screens are superb, there is burn-in of the soft buttons. I can see it on both my wife's phone and mine though it isn't too noticeable. Still disappointing for not that old of a phone. I don't know who made the screens for the 950s but am hoping that Samsung has some way to minimize burn-in, I'm not holding my breath, though. My S8+ is supposed to show up this week sometime.

    In settings , display you can choose in AOD part and choose Clock and Information not to have the home button lit up and it'll still work ok.
