    Hi. There is a faint image of my home screen icons visible in the background of every screen on my Note 8. It's not a huge problem but it is distracting. Does anyone know of a way to fix this?

    Thanks.

    That sounds like screen burn in and I don't think there is a way to repair that. :(

    yep sounds like screen burn as well. i had something like that on my note 8 as well......but that phone has been long gone.

    not much you can do at this point. it is not worth getting a new screen. your best options is to ignore it or upgrade to a new phone.

    Thanks for the replies. Maybe this'll be my excuse to finally breakdown and buy a new phone.
