    I've used my new Pixel 3 XL for about 4-5 hours and I'm noticing in burn in already. It's on the top next to the notch. I've been watching videos on in full screen though. Not blacking out the notch area or anything. Anyone else seeing this? I just turned on the option to hide to the notch maybe 10 minutes max yesterday... Didn't like it. I'm trying to get a picture of it.

    Happening that quickly would be temporary image retention and not burn in.

    I don't think messing with the notch in deveolper setting is a good choice , should wait until Google puts it In the settings by default . Samsung phones use to have the navigation bar option in black but soon took it off because of screen burn in even 3rd party I'd wait until Google brings it . just my opinion

    They really need to ditch OLED. It is an inherently defective technology.

    Too bad they can't fit a plasma display in this form factor. And get rid of the heat. And the extra power requirement. And...

    I can't see any. Where exactly are you seeing it? In the notification area? What do you see? Ghost images of notifications?

    Yeah, I thought plasma was big on burn in

    It's next to the notch area. Basically where the notifications are. That whole area in both sides are always just a different shade that the rest of the screen.

    There's no such thing as defective technology.

    Are you sure that's by design of the app you are using?

    Just checked mine with both dark and light wallpaper. Absolutely no burn in anywhere

    AMOLED screens can get a permanent burn in, and has been their biggest drawback since their inception. LCD doesn't, but may get temporary image retention.

    Yes, they can. But that doesn't mean that they automatically will. When used properly and in properly designed systems this won't be an issue.

    The fact that this is possible doesn't make this technology "inherently defective", and it doesn't mean anyone should ditch it.

    I use my phone quite a bit, which withhold make me more susceptible to it. Not to mention I generally don't like the color calibration on them. So it's not so much me ditching that's technology, but more refusing to adopt it in the first place.

    All the OLED screens are bound to have lcd burn no matter what. But they also display a much vibrant image than any other type of screen.

    OLED = Organic Light Emitting Diode
    LCD = Liquid Crystal Display

    These are totally different technologies and do not work the same way. So your statement that "All of the OLED screens are bound to have lcd burn no matter what." makes no sense.

    Used my 2XL all day long for 1 year with no burn in....ironically my V20 with it's LCD screen had to be sent to LG for permanent image retention.

    The V20 does suffer from temporary retention, but I haven't heard of a permanent burn in. You can't judge all LCD's by that either, as this seems a bad design on that particular LCD. None of the other LCD phones had that issue, at least not wide spread.

    I was thinking it was that. I know Instagram the top is a little different shade, but that's by design. On seeing it in Chrome, when the upper part is all white.
