    Hi, I just bought a Note 8 from someone on OfferUp and in the bottom right corner I have a semi transparent "Watch on HBO" overlay that won't go away. It doesn't appear in screenshots or anything like that but it's always present otherwise and I'm wondering what the deal is? Did this guy sell me some kind of HBO promotional phone or something? Can I get rid of it with a different ROM? Thanks for reading.

    Thanks for the reply, and sorry, I thought I was logged in already I don't see any HBO related apps at all in the list, including the one that shows system apps. Here's a shot of what it looks like, if that'll help.

    What's with this HBO overlay in the corner?-uyf0cvx.jpg

    Overlay is kind of the best word I could think of to describe it, watermark might be a better one though? It's present everywhere. Bottom right corner.

    Welcome to Android Central! I'd guess it's screen burn-in. There's not much you can do about that, I'm afraid.

    Use a darker theme or wallpaper if you can.

    That way you won't see it as much

    I bought my note 8 used with burn in like that and I use dark wallpaper and dark theme

    No problem, thanks for registering and sharing the screenshot. Sorry you got the phone like this but like other members suggest a dark wallpaper can help. Welcome here to the forums
