    Hi guys,

    2 weeks ago I noticed a band on my OnePlus, a small burn in. I was okay with this. Yesterday, I noticed that the icons from battery got burned into the screen. I barely use my phone at 100% brightness, usually 50-55%.

    I contacted OnePlus about it and they said that they'll replace the screen at no cost. I included a picture of the burn in. As you see, you see the circle battery icon. [​IMG]

    My other phone isnt capable of creating a better picture, but its definitely there. I can see the icons from the clock on the other side and the battery icons on the right side. If you look at the picture from a certain distance, you'll see the line of the notification bar.

    Really can't see any thing though but however it's good that OP will fix it at no cost. Do let us know how you get on ;)

    Its hard to picture the burn in because of how bright the phone is. Anyways, its visible for me on a blue static color. When I look close I see the battery and data connection icons. It might not look bad, but it wasnt there last week.

    This is the best picture I could take of it. The circle I drew is the burn in of the battery icon.

    Yup, thats the burn in. It is the circle icon of the battery. Possibly its when it was arround 50% battery left so the entire icon wasnt burned in.

    What is the point of this thread if you get the screen replaced for free?

    I started using since early July. Mine has very mild burn in already. I could see how terrible it will look after 2 years... First Amoled phone I used for more than a month.

    I hide the notch and when I unhide it. I can see the boundary that separates the notch from screen. Yes its very mild burn in, but visie to the eye of mid 20s.

    Edit:

    Non existent on red and green (of course) and noticeable on blue (notch line) and very mild on white. Its noticeable enough that if I were to buy this phone as used phone, i wouldnt buy it.

    One thing is wierd though that the notch area's blue appears slightly washed out grey compared to rest of screen.. With burn in, you would think otherwise?

    If I had a OP6 I would control my phone if there is a burn in, too. It's a bad damage after a few months. How will it be after years?

    Yes I know that very well my last phone (before my op 6) had a burn on the screen and I never took it for a repair cause I thought that it is not that big of a deal. But I think there are multiple threads about this? That was my point on my first post in this thread.

    My spare phone is a oneplus 5t, it is on its way back from the service center, it had terrible burn in on the screen.

    My 6t currently no burn in.
