Part 1. Definition: What is Screen Burn-in

Let’s imagine this: If you keep showing the home page of your Android for a long time (For one hour or more), it is very likely that your Android screen will be harm and there’s still a shadow remain on the screen even if you have turned into other phone interface. That’s called screen burn-in. This will lead to a permanent discoloration which is caused by irregular pixel usage.  This happens a lot especially for those PDP TV and the smart phones which adopt Samsung AMOLED series such as Super AMOLED Plus HD, Super AMOLED Plus and Super AMOLED.

Part 3. Solution: How to Fix or Avoid Screen Burn-in

What to do if unfortunately your Android LCD display screen got burned in? How to repair dead pixel? Is there any way to fix AMOLED burn-in problem? Of course, there are several ways you can try to
1. Lock the screen when you don’t use your Android phone. And of course, don’t stay on the same interface for more than 20 minutes.
2. Adjust the screen contrast of AMOLED screen to 50 or lower. A high screen contrast will burn the chemical substance of the AMOLED screen fiercely and will accelerate the process of burn-in. So keep it in mind to lower the brightness and contrast of your Android.
3. In the first 200 hours of using your new Android smartphone, you will be suggested to full screen playback the interface rather than 4:3 format so as to protect the screen.
4. You can make it transparent of the status bar and the dynamic wallpaper.
