    Has anyone else noticed some fairly major screen burn on their device?
    Noticed last night when i loaded up the browser and switched to landscape mode, faded yellow line along the left/top where the top bar usually sits!
    Didn't realise OLED screens were susceptible to screen burn!

    Personally I don't have burn-in problems, but I read somewhere that OLED screens are quite susceptible to something like that, yes. (they appear to wear out faster than LCD or something like that)

    Got it on mine too. Nothing too bad yet, so I use black notification bars to extend its life. (I hope)

    Didnt know that!
    If I'd known I wouldn't have it set so that the screen stays on while its plugged in! I've been using it as a nightlight for the bedroom to stop me walking into things!

    that explains a lot :) I guess most people don't leave their screen on for too long... so they don't see this problem
