    I've noticed the bottom control bar and the notification bar have burned into the screen. Are there any fixes for this, or do I need to do a warranty exchange?

    I've used Amoled burn in fixer app for slight burn in on Nexus 6 and 6P. Now I hide status bar and nav bar to prevent burn in.

    No. It doesn't work that way.

    Would only work by taking a pic of the screen with another camera

    I use this to keep it from happening. Dunno if it would help at this point.

    Are you sure it's actually burnt in hardware-wise?

    Not necessarily. If you can get images of different colors (red, blue, lime green, etc) and view them in an app that doesn't show the status or notification bar when viewing, you should be able to see it in certain colors.

    I had permanent burn in on my old Galaxy S3, and tried some of those burn in fixer apps (which flashed different colors on the screens to try and fix the issue) and in some colors it was more visible. So if you can do the same with different color images and the right gallery app, then take a screenshot, you should be able to see it.

    I know that I've taken screen shots after zooming and aligning an image just right rather than editing and cropping to get the same result, so I don't see why this wouldn't work here as well.

    I've decided that I'm going to use inverted colors mode to try and even out the pixel wear over time. When it comes time to upgrade to the next Google phone, I'll do a warranty exchange so I have a fresh model to sell.
