Super AMOLED is not so super

Postby nedooo » Tue Dec 14, 2010 6:15 am

Well, some of this was known before, but it was thought tat it's not permanent.
Samsung's highly advertised SUPER AMOLED suffers from burn-in effect.
At first I thought that it was not a big problem since it should disappear after few moments. But this hardware fault is permanent.
You see, since top status bar is almost always on screen it is embedded permanently after a month or two phone usage. Everybody can see this, when you type *#0*# yo'll enter test menu. On the upper part there is red, green and blue square which will turn all screen to respective color when taped on.
Tap on blue since it's most noticeable and look at the upper part of the screen where status bar is, and you can clearly see network status burned in, memory card indicator burned in, time burned in, battery status burned in...
So this effect or fault is here to stay, as I tried some of burn-in screen removal videos and java apps for couple of days and it's the same it doesn't pale off.

that could be true... it is funny that you say that it is most visible on the blue screen, because the blue diodes are in fact the ones that do age the fastest. so i guess the blue diodes at the spot of the screen have worn off and lost light emitting ability to an extent it is visible.

It is visible on green and on red too, but blue is the less brighter so it's easier to see. I would change my SAMOLED for SLCD anytime :wink

thats quite normal as it is a technology that hasnt perfected yet..... plasmas have this effect too......its called pixel burning in plasma...... lcds have this effect when screen is pressurised (had to change my blackberry lcd twice)..... but leds have longer life when kept at medium brightness.. and the color is changed randomly like watching movies because that gives each led a different color rapidly... so no burn in will be observed that fast... i mean after an year obviously u will start seeing it.... so keep that brightness slider to say 5 or 6 for good viewing and good screen life....
