My Samsung S3 is only 6 months old and it has terrible screen burn, thanks to the tunein radio app.. Last year Samsung originally said it wasn't a fault, but have now backed down and said they will repair it for free.

Has anyone been onto their provider to get this sorted? I want mine fixed, but am stressing at the thought of being without my phone for a couple of weeks.

This is one of the hidden problems with OLED.

The Blue Cells also age much faster. a S2 OLED is very now green in comparison to a new S4 OLED due to age.

My n8 is nearly 3 years old. Has no burn in and white balance issues.

My understanding is that whilst it is true the blue led's do have a shorter time to half brightness. You are talking 1000s of hours before you have even a 1% difference.

If the Samsung screen has burn in it's just faulty.

My screen goes off when using tunein like it does on any app if left alone.

In bed I have a Philips Dock for my S3, and unless you physically turn the screen off, it stays on whilst in the dock. You can then see at a glance what is playing now, and what is next. . . On a light screen I have the TuneIn logo top left, and the controls at the bottom.
