    AMOLED screens have always been susceptible to burn-in, so I'm gonna say 'no', but also, what did you leave on your screen for hours for that to happen? I've had every single AMOLED Samsung phone since the S2 and never have I ever had a burn-in issue with them.

    Screen burn in is possible, but after a week or two? That's practically impossible. If you had a white circle against a black background and forced the screen 24/7 for a couple of weeks straight it could happen, but definitely not for normal use in that small a tune frame.

    A week or two? That's only possible if the screen was on Max on a stagnant screen 24/7... Maybe.

    I had screen burn in with my note 2. It was the notification bar.

    I've mentioned on another thread... everytime I have gone Best Buy and see a S7 series or even when the Note 7 were on sale, they run through their demo over and over and I ALWAYS see the title screen saying Samsung Galaxy Note 7 deeply burned into all their phones. I am wondering how their buttons at the bottom are going to do.

    Not to start an argument but I have seen many many Samsung OLED phones with burn in including one of mine. My one-year-old S7 so far is free of Berne in

    First, the title of the thread is misleading. You're saying there is a burn in problem with the S8. You may want to add a question mark at the end.
    Also, there is no issues reported with screen burn in on the S7. Of course, some people might get them. But, that's with every amoled screen.
    As others have stated there's no issues that needed to be fixed. It's user experience based on their usage.
    I would expect that with every newer iteration of the Samsung screens, there's less and less of a chance of any burn in.

    No argument from me. If it were a widespread issue, I think you'd see articles about it. I've been using amoled devices for years and never seen it. Haven't seen it in any of my friends phones who use Samsung devices either. Guess we've just had different experiences.

    Right. If it was an issue it would be all over the forums.

    Lol...every AMOLED screen I've ever had eventually gets burn in....but I've never complained about it in a forum.

    I know exactly what others are sayings with regard to the demo units at places like Best Buy - but those devices don't have normal use. The retail demos they run often sit with the screen locked to "on" for hours at a time, every single day, displaying the same static images at full brightness.

    The burn in I *always* see on my AMOLED screens is the notification bar area. Without exception every single Note I've owned (which is every model) as well as my S-series (3, 5, and 6) phones have had burn in. It's not particularly noticeable most of the time, but it definitely happens. And it's not something I was concerned enough about to mention in a forum because I already know that this is an issue with AMOLED screens.

    dont the screens have to be on a constant image for a LONG time for the screen to burn in? The reason the demo units almost always have screen burn in is because they are left on for the most part so the image burns in.

    Yup. And that's why I always tend to see the burn in on my devices in the status bar / notification area. The AT&T logo, Wifi strength and LTE symbols are almost always in the same place on the screen. I don't play a lot of games so when my phone is on, the status bar is usually visible...and those icons eventually burn in.

    Small price to to pay, IMO, for such a gorgeous display.

    That's interesting because I am a heavy user and have never had this happen before. I am not implying that your experience is fiction because it definitely isn't. I guess I've been lucky because I've used a ton of phones from several manufacturers with no burn in issues. Maybe the fact that I use auto brightness works in my favor since the intensity isn't as much on a daily basis.

    Modern OLED panels are less-susceptible to burn-in than earlier counterparts.

    Even so, the organic components used means that they are indeed more sensitive to static elements and will degrade faster than an LCD panel, causing you to see that "burn-in" effect.

    This is especially evident in store units, where the devices are run at 100% brightness and display either the same demonstration video over and over or stuck on the home screen for a long period of time. For normal use, however, it will degrade much more gradually.

    Do you have the screen timeout time set to minutes? i Usually have it set to 30 sec or 1 minute at most. I feel like that may be the issue with those who do eventually get the screen burn in. I've had every major samsung phone over the years and have never had a screen burn in issue. I would say im a heavy user too but I don't leave my screen on when I am not using it.

    The only thing that I am a bit worried about now though is basically the on screen buttons. I guess the status bar would be a similar situation but, that hasn't been an issue for me personally before. But with the on screen buttons being a new thing for samsung on phones, I hope it doesn't go bad.

    My last AMOLED device was from 2010 and never suffered burn-in. However, after 3 years the colour balance had definitely shifted, with a green tint to whites and greys. I'm sure LED longevity is still better (and so have no interest in AMOLED TV sets), but I'd personally classify it as a reservation rather than a concern.

    I normally hide my status bar on my homescreens anyway (no way I will use the manufacturer's launcher), so am less concerned about that.

    That's why we have TWO Samsungs here with burn-in. To make up for you not having any burn-in.

    I've had a samsung s2, s4 and the s6 edge. I use them for work and more specifically as a sat nav. Both the s4 and the s6 have suffered badly from screen burn or pixel fade due to the static images associated with the map icons. Disappointing for flagship phones.
