Well. If you have navigation buttons on then switch them off and use gestures instead, the nav buttons are a big burn in risk, next, don't use youtube in portait mode as this burns in.

You can't fix burn in, the screen needs to be replaced.

The main contributors to burn in, are temperature, screen brightness, and lack of pixel refresh.
So, don't let the device get too hot, such as using it in the sun, as a common occurrence is burn in of the keyboard from texting on a hot day in the sun. This goes hand in hand with screen brightness.
And finally pixel refresh, if the pixel has been on for a long time, it may cause burn in. Examples are things like the clock at the top of the screen, which is generally always there, and if you use on screen navigation buttons, then those too.
With the Always On Display, i know there is a work around to this, where it actually shifts the clock around by a few pixels every now and then to avoid using the same ones excessively.

Just something to think about.

Have a word with Samsung Customer services or wait until the Samsung Service Centres / Samsung Experience Stores open so they can take a look and advise @ryderrr

It's not common, I've only had it happen once, on my S3, I was texting whilst it was on charge and brightness was high, and that entire text conversation and the keyboard was burned onto the screen permanently. Its still there to this day.
But i haven't had it happen to any of my other devices, other Galaxy S and Note models. I learned my lesson.

hmm, maybe that is the reason even in dark mode, the google maps is brighter on my other phones compare to S20Ultra, but at the same time, the camera app at night or low light conditions, boosts screen brightness to some 50% blinding me;
this makes no sense, also making the screen unreadable when sun shines on 🤨👎
yea, the adaptive brightness gets stuck once a while, and won't readjust until i restart the phone;
and that part of the brightness setting on the bar that is red, hmm, does that kill the screen? i have never seen anything like that before

I don't use the adaptive, i adjust it manually, i never need it higher than 50-60% unless there's glare on screen, or watching something in HDR.
It takes some getting used to, as i used to always have max brightness on my S3, then sticking to 50% feels dim for a while until you get used to it.
