    But those usually have static images, on the display for 10+ hours a day, for months on end. A lot less likely to happen with normal usage

    No burn in on the newer panels ! That sounds promising but I would like to read an official statement stating that.
    Don't think they'd ever give a statement saying their older phones had burn in problems. But if you just search online the user reports aren't as frequent as on past models

    So they aren't as frequent which to me means it still happens.

    Still, not something I'd even be slightly worried about. No more than I would with any other phone

    I am not getting the emphasis on Android updates. Kitkat was probably the best overall update and that got trumped in a bad way by Lollipop with less battery life (opposite of what was touted) and the ART app system that takes at least 15% more storage space since the app cores are not compressed- this results in a minimal performance boost, but results in more RAM used and less storage space.

    Now we are being touted the "grace and wonder" of Marshmallow. Similar spin and hyperbole of Lollipop- that did not exactly pan out. The reality is the same hardware with an update, but the real key is firmware settings that the device maker creates. Firmware has more impact than anything else and even that has a quick point of diminished returns.

    The actual OS is not as prominent as iOS, since Apple has just a micro fraction of the devices to design for, so their updates are both firmware and software. Still prefer Android, but the point is not the same weight for updates and they too have a diminished return.

    Summary point is I am not sure if the Android OS update should be a main concern beyond 18 months. JMO.

    Thanks for the reply and the 6p is really the phone I want out of the two as I just think the bigger battery will be so much better than the one on the Style/Pure but it is the worry about getting burn in on that Amoled screen which is putting me off and I just don't know what to do One day I think right it is the 6p then I read on the 6p forum about possible burn in then I think no I will get the Style and then I read mixed user reports on battery life! And so it goes on and I am still no closer to a decision the Style would be kinder to my pocket at £360 for a 32gb as opposed to £499 for a 64gb 6P as I feel the 64gb on the 6p would be better due to no sd card even though at present I have an Xperia Z3 with only 16gb and an sd card and the card is almost empty so maybe a 32gb 6p would be ok I am not sure.

    I do like the thought of the phone getting software updates and I know the 6p will.

    It is amazing how difficult it is to decide on a new phone when I only have two to choose from
    No sd card is a no go
