    I've definitely got burn in from using Waze. My commute is around 1h30m each way so the screen is on for a very long time. Here's a screen shot pointing out the three main areas that are usually always black using Waze.

    Edit: looks like I'll need to take a photo. I may realized a screen shot won't show it.

    Thanks for the heads up. Do you usually have it in landscape mode?

    Bummer news about the phone. What are you going to do?

    Gee that's no good Duke. I have read that OLED displays burn-in even more than plasma TV displays. All three of my TVs at home are plasma and you could play a video in an attempt to fix the burn-in problem, it's a series of alternating colours as shown on YouTube

    which looks a little bit like one of those Japanese cartoons that allegedly triggers a seizure.

    Naturally there's an app for that; dunno if it works but probably zero harm in giving it a try. Good luck!
