Galaxy S8 Screen Burn In

Explorer

Has anyone else noticed some screen burn on their galaxy S8/S8+? I noticed that on my lock screen, I can faintly see a bar at the bottom where the on screen navigation buttons are, and having checked it against some flat coloured backgrounds I can faintly see the nav buttons. I've only been using it for 12 days and this seems strange. I don't have my brightness unusually high and I don't leave my display on for long periods anyway...

Not at all on mine there is pixel movement on the nav bar so should not happen and tbh screen burn normally will only show after 6 months + with a fixed pixel at 5 hours use per day. Try running the colour test to see if you have it still *#0*# in the dialer and look at the RGB there.

Yes, I have done the colour test and it is faintly visible on there also - along the bottom of the display. Is the pixel movement in the navigation bar or only for the home button on the always on Display?

Pixel shift is on the AOD as for the nav bar it should not be a issue as its a area that changes around a lot im not 100% sure the on screen buttons on the nav bar are still or not lol as I don't have them up for long.

I've seen a few threads elsewhere which explains the Home Button moves to stop screen burn.

At the moment I have my home button showing with AOD.

 

Goid question on the others. 

 

Are you able to somehow get a picture of this and upload it here ?
