Very concerned about Screen Burn in...

- With the OLED screen comes burn in for every phone that has had it. And I've seen reports from XDA about Europe owners who have already seen it on the S3. Namely keyboard, status bar (and what's in it), and if you use your phone as a desk clock.
The screen is the most used feature on a Smartphone, Just about everytime you use the phone you have to look at the screen, and I do a lot of internet surfing/ video watching.
People freak out over a dead pixel or dust under the screen so how people cope with burn in on a 600$ device?
Any ideas? Concerns unfounded?06-17-2012 03:41 PM

I wonder why there is so much discrepancy when people claiming burn in vs no burn in? Is there that much variance in hardware or is it down to some people have better/acute eyes?
For your people with no burn in issues- Do you typically always have the screen on higher or lower brightness?

- davidncModerator CaptainI haven't had any screen burn in's on any of my phones with amoled screens, those being the original incredible, and the GN.
I never had liked to have my screen brightness turned up really bright.
My screen brightness is 1/4 brightness I don't need it any brighter. I guess it all depends on your preference tho.

- Just doing a quick search in the Galaxy Nexus section shows many threads and many people complaining about burn in. And I heard the Galaxy Nexus had just about the same screen as the S3 (except for side of course). Is this right?
Why can they just use a nice SLED2
My plan is to have this phone for my entire contract so Im scared to get a dud. Stupid Verizon is forcing my cards to take advantage of a subsidized phone and retaining unlimited data

- I keep the brightness on my Gnex at the highest level, still no burn in or burn out. Not seeing this burned issue. By the way everyone who ever seen my gnex screen says it is gorgeous. Especially when I show them a HD movie from Netflix!!!!

- For any one who hasn't seen burn in themselves.
Lots of discussion in these threads. I just can't fathom how this is acceptable to manufacturers and users. -Having to tip toe around not having a image displayed for more than 5 minutes or needing to hide the status bar when surfing the net. Even check out YouTube, I saw a video where the. 9 or so dots from the "password/drawing protected " lockscreen were burnt in.
Does anyone have a guess or explanation as to why some phones exhibit burn in and some don't. Thanks for the input from you guys that have no issues with your phones, it gives me hope.
Boooo on Samsung for pentile (assuming I can see it like on other pentile phoned), and booooo on them for OLED. I really want a new phoneand the S3 is the best out there right now, I'm just a stickler for the most important part in interacting with my precious.

- Cyber WarriorRobots Will KillI have burn in on my GNex.. I can almost make out what looks like clock numbers going across the middle of the screen.. brownish color only really visible when I'm viewing a white background.. example, a web page. From this thread I actually just figured out what it's from... I use my phone as an alarm clock at night and use the app Bedside which displays a digital clock across the screen.. it runs 8-10 hours a night.06-17-2012 09:40 PM

So the S3's screen is that bad huh?...And Gnex for that matter...Sad in our day and age! It really is.06-17-2012 09:47 PM
- I've had a SGS Fascinate since the day they shipped on VZW - my phones haven't been afflicted by burn in, but possibly because I often change screens, and always use auto-rotate and use landscape mode often, even if it's in the dock, it uses the ICS alarm clock with a moving time.
However - I know it can happen. I received as an insurance replacement a refurbished unit that had the Samsung dock image burned into the display - it was like pulling teeth to get Asurion to understand what I meant.
So it seems it's all about how you use it. If you're one to leave the screen on high brightness and left on all day, you may want to reconsider those habits. But for those complaining why not use a SLCD.... once you spend time with the infinite contrast & deep blacks that AMOLED can give you, it's hard to go back to an LCD display.06-17-2012 09:53 PM
