    Hi, i v been trying to understand what are those 3 icons on the left top corner of my screen for a while. If I take a screenshot from my phone they don't show, I had to take a picture with another phone. They are always on, on any app or game running. Pls help me they are so annoying

    Welcome to Android Central! Looks like they are a sort of "edge" widgets or icons - one looks like a Settings gear.

    One looks like a pause, could it be a music player? I have players that allow for controls on the screen when the app is down- could that be it? Have you tried tapping the settings?

    Just me, but I actually think it looks kinda cool, sort of a "screen burn" effect.

    The fact that the icons don't show up on screenshots makes me think that it could be burn-in.

    are you sure it's not a thin sticker that is placed on the screen? if not then i agree it's probably burn in.

    Just one question, have those icons been there since day one or they showed up all of a sudden?

    Yep, definitely burn in, those white icons did it. There are some apps that claim to fix it, but I've never used any and I'm a bit sceptical about them.
