Screen Burn In on Oneplus 6

    I've had my Oneplus 6 for a little over three months and noticed there is some burn in up at the notch and also in the center of the display from using waze. I keep my notch disabled which might exaggerate the burn in. It's only significantly noticeable on a solid blue screen, although it is visible on the system menus. I was wondering if this was fairly normal for this device, since I'm not going to send it back to get it fixed if its just going to reoccur.

    That's one of the downsides of OLED. Burn-in is an unfortunate side effect.

    Wow that seemed to happen quite quickly and usually doesn't happen on my phones until after a year-and-a-half.

    It happened to my oneplus 6 within 1st month of use. tried everything. nothing worked. I am really disappointed with this burn in issue. I have used many Samsung devices with AMOLED display but never faced this burn in issue with them.
    anyone from OnePlus please help me resolve this issue

    You have to get the screen replaced. What were you doing with your phone that caused burn-in to set in within a month?

    Screen burn-in on AMOLED screens is a fact of life. You can lessen your chances of experiencing it by:
    1. Avoiding using apps for long periods of time when they have pixels that stay in the same place and never move, such as PUBG.
    2. Using the Screen Saver in Settings if you keep your screen on when charging or docked.

    PUBG game icons are stucked to my screen. I used to spend an hour, 2-3 days in a week on PUBG. I've never set my brightness manually. I always have my auto brightness on. more than PUBG i used to spend more time on social apps and my mailbox. During 1st month of use i noticed something on my display but i thought it were the stains on my screen guard. but later when i looked closely, i found the game icons are permanently stucked to the screen. this icons are now more visible. I tried to find this issue a solution but nothing really worked. I am very tensed. Because its been only 5 months from the date of purchase. apart from many of the other samsung's AMOLED display's i've used, It happened to me first time till now.
    If anyone have genuine suggestions please let me know.

    You have to take it in for service. Your screen will have to be replaced. It has been reported here that some have been replaced under warrenty. You will have to see if that will be the case with yours or if you will have to pay for the replacement.

    Screen burn-in is not just an issue with OnePlus phones. OLED screens are on approximately half of all devices manufactured and sold, including phones by Samsung, Moto, Asus, iPhone, LG, Huawei, Xiaomi and others. There are many advantages for this type of screen - Google it - but also the potential for screen burn-in.

    It is really the customers responsibility to know their phones capabilities and limitations before buying. I did a lot of research before I invested in my OnePlus 6. I'm guessing that maybe you didn't or you would have known to be mindful of the risk for screen burn-in. Hopefully you have learned valuable lesson from your mistake and will take more time to know what you are buying in the future.
