Staus bar at the top and also a big brown-grayish ghost rectangle in the middle. You could only see it when the screen was white but man it was annoying. That's what really turns me off with amoled displays. I don't like that they're a bit on the blue side and not as bright as, say, True HD IPS on the OG, but I could live with that. Those two things combined, even though the burn-in does not appear to happen with every amoled display, was enough of a No for that phone.

Some SG3 reviewer on YouTube had the status bar burned in after a ridiculously short time - like a week or two weeks. That was obviously from a bad batch, but now that it's been out for half a year, I'm reading more people seeing it. Not a ton but enough, like I said, to not want to bother.
