    What are people doing with the AOD? I like it, even though it probably burns thru the battery quicker. However I noticed the ability to activate a screen saver, with my choices being colors, flipboard, photo table, photo frame, or photos. I really don't want my photos flashing across the screen, or flipboard stories (sometimes some weird stuff shows up on FB). I even find the psychedelic color display to be a bit distracting.

    I assume this feature is to prevent burn-in of the standard AOD date/time stuff? Is this a problem with Samsung displays? I would rather just turn off AOD then have one of these screen savers (or burn-in).

    The AOD display slowly moves across your screen, there will be no issue with burn in.

    I have had an S7 edge for almost a year. I have had the AOD on since purchase and have no burn-in.

    But I did hear that the little home button on AOD display does not move. Not sure if this is true. Make sure to at least disable home button being visible while on AOD display if you are really worried about screen burn in. There is an option in the settings.

    I've used AOD on my s7 edge with no issues.

    Top tip Regarding the Home Button being always lit and that a person can go into settings and choose AOD and Notifications so the Home Button isn't lit up.

    This isn't the first device with AOD. Screen burn in is a non issue.

    I think owners were concerned that the time / date wasn't moving around quick enough previously.

    The possibility of burn in on the home button is real, I mean, those pixels are turned on for hours and it's not moving, that on an AMOLED screen is a real concern, so, first thing I did when I decided to use AOD this time was to change the setting so it doesn't show the home button anymore, I mean it's still there and you can press it and it works, so I really don't need to see it all the time.

    Thanks everyone, leaving AOD on without the home button!

    In AOD settings, in Content to Show, select Clock or Information. This will prevent the Onscreen Home button from being displayed. The rest of the AOD should behave as expected. I normally keep smartphones about a year to a year and a half. Burn in has never been an issue. Obviously, results vary according to individual set ups and habits.

    The Home button doesn't need to move (location). The pixels only need to alternate. The Home button will still look exactly as is but the pixels that light it turn off and ones that were off light up instead. It all happens without being noticeable. I know I'm not explaining it very well but it's been used for years and has the same effect on preventing screen burn in as moving things around the screen.

    I keep mine on permanently and I like using the virtual home button for Double Tap To Wake the screen

    Do you have a source for this? I like having the home button on too and would like the reassurance. Thanks!

    yes, do you remember where you saw that? I'd love to turn it back on, but won't do it until I'm sure it won't burn in.

    You can schedule the AOD to turn off/on. So I have mine off between 12am-8am.

    I think the chances of burn-in on these devices are minimal. Don't worry!

    I leave mine on all day. It's a necessity for long meetings.

    I've read it already, thanks but my question was not about how to turn it off, is simply that it's a real possibility of burn in on ALL AMOLED screen if those pixels are on all the time for hours like the AOD will certainly do during long periods of time without any interaction.

    I (we) just wanted confirmation that indeed they at least alternate pixels while showing the Home button all the time, once I'm sure that is the case then I can feel safer to turn that option back on.

    Thanks, that's basically what I needed, I think I'll just turn it back on now.

    Even with the home button not lit up you can still press there. So just leave it off if you're worried.

    Also, if you put an image on the AOD, is there a chance of burn in with that?

    No as it's still moving around but as more pixels are lit up due to the picture then battery drain maybe slightly higher.
