I know it has been a while, but having had my S8 for almost 2 years now, the screen burn in has faded to almost nothing. On a grey screen you can just about make out the status bar and nav bar, but to be honest, it has held up well. How is everyone else's doing? Did it get worse for anyone?
T-Mobile asked me to reinstall the app... lol. As if it would make a difference (it was Candy Crush's screen I could see).
I was on T-Mobile Jump for insurance so they replaced my phone for $8 or something, after making comments about why I would bother replace my phone for that...
I've read a couple of threads about this screen burn-in, and I have it. I have a Galaxy S8 that I've been using for approximately a year. I have a screen print of it, which I'm going to try to include in this email. It's disturbing, looking at photographs that I've taken, and not knowing where the extra images and colors are coming from. This is a screen print of my flashlight screen. You can see the faint red icon images in it.
That is the exact thing I had in my phone I can see my keyboard.. go to your provider or call them.. they made me factory reset it first to see if it went away but it didn't si then they replaced my phone free of charge..its a defect with their phone don't let them charge you..I have Verizon.. hope this helps
