    An upside down triangle has appeared on my phone screen. No matter which app I use, it is there.
    It's really faint, but noticeable.

    Has anyone else got/had this ?

    It almost looks like screen burn.

    Welcome to the forums. What phone do you have? What happens if you switch to landscape mode, does it stay in the same place? Also, take a screenshot, open it in the gallery and zoom in and out, does the icon change size?

    Ugh. Yeah, that sounds like burn-in.

    Thanks for the reply. I'm assuming that's not fixable in any way ?

    No. sorry. You had that "thing", whatever it is, on the screen for long periods (and probably at high screen brightness), and now it's there permanently.

    I'm not sure. There are some apps that claim to fix burn-in, but I've never tried or put much faith on them. Let me ask around.

    In the meantime I'll move your thread to the S8 forum for better visibility.
