    I have phone charger just about everywhere I go, so I keep my screen on most of the time. Is this bad for the phone or the screen itself? I use a live wallpaper so nothing gets burned in, just don't want the screen to fade or anything.

    Yes...OLED's have a limited operational lifespan. keeping it running 24/7, you'll see a significant dimming and other problems (color will shift, burn in, etc) within a year.
