    Hello. I am writing a topic out of curiosity, or maybe someone from the Users has met the phenomenon called "burnout" of the screen type Amoled, Super Amoled? Often somewhere on YouTube you hear yourself not to use high screen brightness, set a dark type of interface or a dark keyboard theme. Honestly, I had a Samsung Galaxy S3 Mini, S3, S4, S5, S5 Neo, Note 4, S6 Edge, S7 Edge and now Note8, and I have never seen visually what this phenomenon would rely on. I will say more, recently I needed a phone to work, I bought a used Galaxy S3 which screen was in perfect, sharp state, without any discoloration, copy, shadow and similar phenomena and yet the phone is x on the back of the neck, and thousands of hours worked on the illuminated screen. The same applies to the Galaxy S4 which I have in my family from novelties, S5 which is also about 3 years old, Note 4 and S6 Edge (about two years old). Has any of you really encountered the "burnt" amoled screen? I have extended the contract on Note8, the smartphone will cost me a little so I would like to know what is the real risk of this type of phenomenon, because from what I know the warranty does not include this (ie if burns occur during the warranty period, then repair / exchange lcd I will be able to make on the site only for a fee).
    Half of smartphones that I exchanged since the news was mine, only the relatives of the family took over, and during my use I often worked, for example, two navigations 6-8h a day (google maps and yanosik) and completely no discolorations, breakthroughs, etc. what is the real risk of this phenomenon, because as you already know S8 / S8 + / Note8 had quite strong problems with pink whites so maybe they are more susceptible to so-called burnout?

    Thank you in advance for all your opinions :)

    This problem has occurred with cathode-ray tubes, now rather no one pays attention to this aspect.

    I will say yes, a little on the Internet is written about this firing. I own two Nokia N8 at home. I use it "sharp" and I do not see any damage to the screen or other damage. I only have them because they have a great camera, and a great AMOLED. Probably these Chinese trips, they behave like that after some time.

    Once I met with such a case, on the Samsung S4 display, which was mounted on a phone-demo (i.e. it probably shone 24/7, or a minimum of 10h a day non-stop). On a white background burned some text and graphics, I did not find a way to remove it.

    I've got two such phones. The first one was the Galaxy Note 4 and the second Galaxy A5 2015. Most often, the exhibition phones have this problem. Such a phone is included in the exhibition, displays all the time and at maximum brightness, for example, some graphics or an advertising message. After removing from the exhibition and launching the white background, you can see this burned inscription. A little depends also on luck because sometimes a display appears, which burns out faster. The burned display works normally but these burned pixels are fainter than others. Sometimes, however, it annoys.

    A very frequent complaint in Samsung was in the live demo I had such s5 and s6 appears when I have one graphic display for a long time, although I also had s6 Edge + with burned icons from facebook.

    Well, thank you for all the answers. It seems that the problem is serious, mainly in heavily exploited screens (exhibitions, demos) although I had a time where after a minimum of 6 hours a day I had navi and I did not touch it.
    Anyway, I think that there is nothing to fall into variations, because reading all these reviews on the internet I began to fall into some paranoia, the screen darkened to the readability, the hidden navigation bar at the bottom, the keyboard pulled in a black theme, wallpaper with dark colors, etc. If this is not enough, use the Note8 Guard, because it would be a bit weak to use the device in 30% so that sometimes it does not burn out, all the more so since each previous smartphone cost me a maximum of 3,500, so you have to pay 4300, so knock on I will not let it go if I have problems :)

    Thank you again for all your opinions, best regards.

    Hello ... I have Samsung A5 (2015) from the news and in my case this screen is a bit burned ... especially on the bar of powiemom and I also watch a lot of YouTube and I notice that I have a discoloration in the place where the film is separated (vertical). I can see it best on my screen ... somehow I'm used to it but it looks strange ... I will say
