    The Pixel 2 XL may suffer from a screen burn-in problem
    Consternation surrounding the display in the Google Pixel 2 XL is well known at this point, and to be honest most of it has been pretty overblown. But we have something new to talk about now: screen burn-in.

    Like father, like son. The Pixel also has this problem.



    But then other OLED displays have this 'feature', too.

    I wonder if the LG pOLED is more susceptible...?

    It's hard to say on the basis of 1 case. With any OLED device you get examples with burn in very early, and examples which go for years without it. I tend to think that cases like this are defective in some way, the question is whether it's rare or not.

    This is making me so nervous. I'm wondering if I should cancel my pre-order.

    When is your expected shipping date? If it's a month away you can afford to wait a bit and see whether this is a one-off.
