    I was looking at refurbished Galaxy Note 8's on eBay and all the sellers list this problem. They have multiple quantities available though so I'm wondering if they just list this to cover themselves in case it has it or do literally all of them have this issue? I have the S8 and I know it has the same type of screen, but I've never had an issue. Is LCD burn also a common problem for the S8 and S8+?

    Screen burn depends on 2 things - how bright the screen is turned up and how long the same thing is on. If someone leaves the home page on almost all day, and it's at 100% brightness, any LCD screen will eventually burn in. If you reduce the brightness to something comfortable (I find 20%-25% about right in a normal room or office), and you keep the screen blank unless you're using the phone (30 second timeout or Proximity Service running and you put the phone down face down, it should take years to get burn-in. (My over-5-year-old Note 3 has no burn-in.)

    If these phones were display phones it is very likely they all have burn in because the displays get abused leaving them max brightness and on all day.

    Normal usage it isn't very common.

    My Note 8 that I bought at launch has screen burn. Odd thing is, the icons that are on the home screen are burnt in. I keep my brightness on auto and the one screen I'm on the least, is the home screen. I mean, who sits there and stares at their home screen for any extended amount of time? And as soon as I'm done doing what I'm doing, I turn the screen off. I could understand if some fixed images from my text messaging app, Facebook or my web browser were burnt in, but they're not.

    It’s ridiculous. Within 5 months the screen burn in on my note was showing. I am fastidious about never being in the same place for long and i turn my phone off if I’ll be reading a page and have to get up to walk across the room and back. If I’m not using it, it’s not on. I don’t watch YouTube in portrait, only landscape..... so that there isn’t a chance of burn. I make efforts. Yet still in just under half a year i could see the discoloring. Considering these screens are $250 a piece, that’s flat out ridiculous. It’s my only real complaint about the phone other than occasional lagging and i prefer having a real home button, but that isn’t a real complaint since i bought it..... not like that was a surprise.

    Same here. All home screen burns on auto brightness.

    it's a random screen issue. I had one that got burn in in about a month, warrantied that one, my current one I've had over a year and no burn.
    since it is uncommon but happens enough I wonder if they don't have a problem with Monday screens

    Any screen will have burn in if it's on full brightness for a long period of time. I always have my phone on auto and I have never had the burn in issue whatsoever- my Note8 when I had it before trading it in for the Note9 was as perfect as I first bought it and my Note9 is still perfect. The first thing I did when I got the phone was make sure that it was on auto brightness. It's what works best for me and I have never had any burn in issues.
