And my screen is very hot!. Will it hurt/damage anything?
No...unless it bursts into flames and incinerates you in a vigorous fashion. But, if that does happen to you, just file an insurance claim
I had screens suffer heat death, so I'd definitely let it cool down, pronto.
Heat and fancy cell phones do not mix too well.
Id let it cool down just to be safe..never know
it appears to have hurt your english skills.
English is a capital E
Having any screen on for a long time is bad for it.
Why do you think so?
PS - Maybe the aight letters got too hot to type on. See? Nobuddy thinks of the obvious....
That was my first thought when I saw it.... I don't know what's the big deal about the grammar in a place like this, this isn't really a school. As for the question, you might wanna leave it off for a while, i am not sure if it affects the screen, but better safe than sorry. Hell if it was me, i would even take out the battery for a while.
My longest is when watching the World Cup, about 2 hours. Not sure how hot it should be, but I did feel the phone being warm.
I have mine set to stay on while charging, and some days, I'll leave it plugged in all day so that I don't get screen-blanking issues during any critical calls.
On most of those days of 6~8 on time - the screen can stay mildly warm.
When my screen has gotten hot, it's because I've been doing stuff that pushes the processor to top speed for those hours.
The LCD panel itself should have a mean time between failure rating on the order of 10s of thousands of hours - the backlight should be good for some thousands of hours or even in 10s as well. These sort of displays are typically rated for much longer, but I've de-rated them here for conservatism and mobile use.[*]
However, when those components begin thermal conduction and in effect become heat sinks for the processor or the battery - THAT IS A PROBLEM.
I'd gladly elaborate - but only as requested. Basically - you can kill a panel with excess heat.
And - because you're interesting in other technologies such as SAMOLED, I thought I'd share this, somehow I wasn't paying attention to it.
Color e-ink is here. No backlight, very high power efficiency, the brighter the sunlight, the better it looks - the whole bit. Here's some links if you're interested.
It's very cool - just uses a form of light interference to achieve color, and 300+ dpi resolutions are possible. Right now, it seems that color saturation is a little low - but - give it time.

Thanks for the advice guys.
Oh, and u should always begin your sentences with a captial letter.
you not u
You know. You're right.
So, I called Qualcomm and mentioned this to them - turns out they hired Nigel as a design consultant.

I thought the point of English class was to teach one how to speak and write correctly ALL the time, not just in English class.
I might suggest that some of you read the rules of the forum.
Anyone have anything remotely on-topic to add? Nope, didn't think so.....
