    Yep. That's what amoled does. No matter how good it is, sooner or later it will burn in. You shuttle just look at the OG Moto X, 2nd gen and Nexus 6 - atrocious burn within months of use.
    That's why you should try and change things around in custom launchers. All areas with white fixed symbols and icons are more prone than others. Samsung's panels evolved a lot so they last much longer now. Still, if you pay close attention you'll always be able to see it. Keeping your phone at higher brightness and using 5+ SOT daily will accelerate the burn.
    To me it's not really a big deal anymore. Even 2 yr old Note 4 was OK. My only issue is the color accuracy - I want to see the pics as they are while taking them.

    I'm using immersive mode as much as possible- more screen space is a nice bonus. I am worried about burn-in, my 2013 Moto X had it bad.

    Try using an app called GMD Immersive from the play store. It slides the top/bottom bar off the screen.
    Screen shot showing what it look like. The phone is a G4 Plus but works the same on my Z Play.

    this is what you can use with Nova launcher
    -hide your notification bar and say when you swipe up, you get to see it only then.
    -have your notification bar in black

    as you can see I combined them both
