Is anyone having any problems with amoled burn in? I can't decide between the S4 and HTC One but the burn in problem makes me hesitant to get the S4.
I f you answer, thank you! :D

It'll happen that is a problem with amoled screens. When I hide my status bar and navigation bar in my nexus its there. S4 no different just still pretty new.

I've owned a Galaxy SII, Note 2, Galaxy S3, and Galaxy S4...all AMOLED, never an issue with burn-in. There ARE some blotches of deep, black pixels when the screen is showing an all-black and the dimming is right, but that's visible only with a very low light and it's not really an issue, just how these screens work.

That's great. But it seems a lot of people have started boycotting all amoled devices because they claim they had burn in issues.

I've never had any issues with screens on my Galaxy phones (s2, s3, Note 2, s4). I've never really been too concerned about them though. I generally don't keep a phone long enough to encounter any issues with that though. I guess we will see how well my s4 does! I've had it for a few weeks now and no problems yet and I do plan on keeping my s4 until I upgrade in March. I love this phone! If I do encounter any burn-in issues, I will take it up with Sprint haha.

Any sources? It's the first time I've heard about it, actually... Not trying to be antagonistic, just really curious about this as, again, I've never heard about issues with burn-in, let alone a boycott movement on these devices.

I don't think there are any specific sources. Just on some threads and forums. Sometimes in comments of articles or reviews.
