    I'm not sure if the screen on the Droid is OLED or regular LCD. I know that leaving an LCD on for hours at a time can possibly shorten the life of the backlight... Anyone know what the case is here?

    Back when backlights were florescent tubes yes they wore out, but newer devices are LED backlit so they don't wear with use.
