    I know the AOD makes it convenient to see the time and date as well as what kind of notifications we received. My concern is since it's constantly on in the same spot, will it cause burn in. Do we have the option so it shifts around periodically to avoid burn in? I have a Gear S3 so I don't really need to look at my phone to find out the current date, time and notifications. Just wondering about burn in.

    It moves around so shouldn't be any issue.

    I believe it shifts around imperceptibly by default. I don't have a Samsung with AOD, but if I did, I would turn the AOD off for burn-in concerns and because I read somewhere in a Note 8 review that the AOD does use up some battery.

    I read somewhere about months ago its less than 1% per hour and will not cause burn in, especially on the this screen since there's so much room for it to move around.

    You can turn it off in the settings but it does move around to prevent burn in. The virtual home button is a whole different matter. You can also turn it off on the lock screen. (It may actually be turned of by default now. It wasn’t when the S8s first came out)

    The virtual home button also moves to prevent burn in. If people are worried about it then simply turn AOD off but I've had around 13 or 14 phones with Always On Display now and not one of them have suffered burn in or significant battery drain from using it 24/7. For me it's way too valuable and useful to turn off

    Were all those 13 phones Samsung? Because AOD on Samsung first came out with the S7. On Samsung phones with AOD type screens have no need to worry about burn ins because they're LCDs. Only OLED type screens have burn in issues, and Samsung and the v30 so far are the only OLED type phones AFAIK.

    Only thing I've ever seen burn in on(other than the old arcade games) is my MOTO 360, and it has an LCD screen. Can only see against the grey of the settings screen.

    Ever since Samsung added AOD there's always this question for every one of their phones. And the answer is the same: whatever is on the AOD moves ever so slightly to prevent burn in.

    It moves around and it's usually kind of dim, plus it deactivates in a pocket.

    Might be a concern over a few years, but not likely to cause a problem.

    A little off topic, but don't the navigation buttons move around too? Just wanted double check

    Yes the home button specifically moves around to prevent burn in and you don't really notice it moved.

    Been using AOD since they've introduced it and no burn in issues.

    You probably didn't own and use any of them long enough to cause a burn in.

    My S7E has no burn in. Got it April last year. My old Note 2 never had a burn in after more than 3yrs of use. My mom still uses my brother's old S3. No burn in. To be honest I've only seen burn in once in my life, and that's 8 years ago on a friend's Galaxy S. My own Galaxy S never had a burn in though.

    I worked Verizon for 4 years, saw a few phones with burn in that were owned by customers. Our store displays would develope it anywhere from a few months to a year, almost every display. Thing is, the displays were at max brightness and powered on 24/7 connected to chargers/security alarms. Batteries ballooned up and split some of the phones open before a year old. It's why I won't charge my phones over night.

    My S7E has burn in, but not from the AOD, but from the information displayed at the top of the screen.

    Like anything else that is subject to burn in, any static images can cause issue. Be mindful of it and vary your usage and you will be fine. For example, rotating the phone to play games, or watch video. I wish we had better control over the top notification bar so that we could hide it like the navigation bar. That would help curb the image retention and burn in from the clock, wifi, etc.

    I've seen a friends with burn in. But he had his brightness cranked up. I don't have burn in on mine at all but I always keep my brightness below half.

    There is so much in life to be concerned about. Don't be concerned about things which is not your job to be concerned of. It's Samsung job, and you paid a premium price for it. So the least you except is that they won't let a screen burn this time, considering the phone was literally on fire last year. lol Now, let's worry about how to help hundreds of people dying of hunger, and the people who are just hit by Hurricane Harvey and Irma.

    ??? Samsung has been using AMOLED screens in all of their Galaxy phones (Note and S) since inception.

    Did I say they didn't? I had them since the first Galaxy S. I only said Samsung only had AOD recently, on the S7. You can't have AOD burn in on a Note 2 if the Note doesn't have AOD in the first place.
