Sonu4678, 23 Oct 2017FYI Both LCD & OLED screens are susceptible of burn-in. It's just OLEDs are more common. I... moreIncorrect. LCD screens do not get burn in. They get image retention which can go away through moving images (video) or flashing different colours on the screen to sort of massage the liquid crystals back into position. LED screens burn in because the actual pixels themselves degrade or die. So, LCD screens can suffer from image retention and LED screens suffer from burn in.
Okay, I guess it'll be a waiting game until Sony finally goes to OLED race with supplies from JDI (also where Samsung and LG get their panels from, back then) with no problems as such.
Today, the more I hear news like this, the more that I worry about getting an AMOLED screen smartphone.

I've used a few till i changed to OnePlus which is really good phone and also doesn't suffer from burn-in since they... well had enough sense to have a black theme on an amoled panel...unlike google...who should've been way more aware of this issue.
Emc91, 23 Oct 2017That's exactly why this is weird! Why only LG phones have this problem, no matter what panels ... moreTheir G2 and G3 didn't face such issues.
The G4 with the new Quantum IPS screen has been the start of this for LG, until the V20, and I do think that even the G6 also uses it.
Gunslinger777, 23 Oct 2017G4 and G5 had LCD, LCDs do not suffer from burn in so your argument is BSThat's exactly why this is weird! Why only LG phones have this problem, no matter what panels they use?

I know that ye... moreIt's not about being OLED or IPS LCD, but rather how each manufacturer manufactures that specific screen technology.
For example, IPS LCD isn't a technology known for burn ins, but LG's had it, though it's called "image retention" or "image persistence" instead in order to differentiate it from OLEDs. Now their latest V30 with their P-OLED screen also suffers many problems.
OLEDs, on the other hand, is a technology known for infinite contrast ratio, but yet again, LG's V30's P-OLED display still has a very very minimal light glow with blacks. Not really very significant, but if we talk about it scientifically, it's a big shame.
Apparently only Sony and Apple can be trusted for display quality, and Huawei, Oppo, & Asus's IPS LCDs are worth of mention, if you don't care about inferior overall display quality (sharpness, color accuracy/reproduction, contrast, brightness, etc.)
ZloiYuri, 23 Oct 2017Made by LG. That's all what you need to know about this phone. Garbage.Yes. The Pixel 2 XL can't show a uniform grey image or grey icons without making them look like a rainbow. LG V30 also has an OLED and a plain grey image looks like it has shades on it.
My ancient Nokia N8 doesn't have burn-in just like my Galaxy S5. It's LG's fault.
techperson211, 23 Oct 2017Wonder why only Sony phones doesnt encounter this?Because Sony knows how to make high quality products. Here in retail stores, many of Samsung Galaxy S8/S8+ devices here are already having burn in problems, while the XZ Premium retains a fantastically great display like no other.
LG also doesn't, but it takes longer for IPS LCD screens to happen, and apparently it also happened on my sister's LG G4, but I don't really know about the G6, but knowing there are also some issues about the V20 with this problem, I doubt they could easily fix burn in in just 6 months.
Huawei also has great IPS LCD screen, but is nowhere near to Sony in regards to overall display quality (brightness, color reproduction/accuracy, contrast, sharpness, etc.)
Literally Apple is the only one that's close to Sony in terms of display quality, but knowing how my iPad Air 2 got a major image retention issue for under 3 years, I do believe that this could also happen to any iPhones, given that these panels seem to be made by the same supplier to them, which is LG.
When we talk about display quality, it's a pointless talk without including Sony.
[deleted post]FYI Both LCD & OLED screens are susceptible of burn-in. It's just OLEDs are more common. It's a myth that only OLED gets burn-in.
Made by LG. That's all what you need to know about this phone. Garbage.
Interesting. OLED is not new. Samsung, LG, etc don't seem to have burn-in issues on their units anymore. Yet Google with their premium pricing cannot even figure this out? Feel sorry for those forking $$$ to Google, and the only response is "we are looking into it." Such "premium" experience. :D
This is a quite considerable issue & because when the display is "burn-in" you will notice it all the time (generally speaking), and so you just can't forget it.
Ouch. Is there a black theme option in the Pixel 2? Otherwise, this is also Google's fault. I really have to wonder how many people work for Google's Pixel products.

They're brighter, less power-hungry and much more durable. Unfortunately, people are stuck in their first impressions (like the people that hate "Lag"Wiz but haven't tried Experience 8.1/8.5, I have it on my tablet and it's very smooth)

And I've never seen a SuperLCD display for a while. Last time was 2014 I think.
