    I have a weird slight burn in, right in the middle of my screen, it's about the size of AOD. I've had at least 10 Samsung phones with Amoled panels over the years and never had burn in until the note 8. I havn't changed my usage patterns so I'm wondering if it's AOD, is that possible?

    Wow, now I see how lucky I am, have had several Samsung phones, never an issue with screen burn-in. Phew...

    I use SWIFT keyboard with a grey-white-ish theme.

    Never really gave it much thought. But I found out I do have it. Very slight at top and bottom but it's there. Does not bother me, but just wanted to let you know it does happen.

    Anyone asking for a "Screenshot" shouldn't be commenting on this topic.

    Warranty your device. @themusicmonkey is 100% correct on telling these "support agents" asking to hard reset to try to fix it that it's already been done.

    I've got burn in again, on my second screen (warranty replacement due to the first burn in). This time I had the brightness at about 63%. Amazing how little it takes to damage a screen, utterly ridiculous.

    I'd be interested in seeing an actual picture of your screen, most people I talk to about it haven't noticed it (no idea how) but when I point it out it's blatenly obvious and then can't unsee it. AMOLED screens from 5 yrs ago are pretty much guaranteed to have screen burn in regardless of how it was used.
    Oddly, I never had a burn in issue before the Note 8...and have had nothing but notes since the original was released.

    I've had the Note 8 practically since launch, so about 1.5 years now. I'm on my 2nd phone though because I needed to have warranty replacement on my first one due to burn in, which I think was right around the 9 mo mark.

    I'd definitely say that I'm largely at fault for that. Even though I had my screen timeout set to 1 minute, I generally kept my screen brightness at or near it's max with most of my usage. I have a bad habit of starting to type of an email or reply to a text and then set my phone down before finishing. This results in my on screen keyboard staying up until the screen times out. Then I'd pick the phone back up, type some more and then set it down again. All told, if I have to take a guess I'd say this happened at least 20x a day...maybe more. So that's 20 total minutes of time throughout the day that my keyboard was pulled up, but the phone was not actually in use. What was my burn in issue? The keyboard. It almost looked as if I actually had it pulled up even when I didn't.

    So I dimmed the screen to around 65% with my new phone and I've done a decent job of getting into the habit of tapping the power button to power down the screen whenever I set my phone down. I've now had the replacement phone about the same amount of time as the original and I have 0 burn in to report.

    Moral of the story is that while there will always be a handful of defective units out there, something like burn in is generally the result of poor ownership and bad habits.
