What they didn't know that most of these display would only last for less than 3 years. Which is why battery are draining as fast as a speed of light in a long run!!!!!!!!
The bit in the article about "moving content by a few pixels" only applies to "always on displays", and anyway would not help with navigation buttons: if you were to move these by a few pixels most of the area they cover would remain illuminated, and so this would provide no protection whatsoever.
Is it too much to expect that people providing commentary and analysis for a living think a little bit about what they are writing?
No matter what the AMOLED/ OLED display will surely easily get burnt by heat from the sun or the fire!!!!!! They could have gone for optic AMOLED or Super LCD display which doesn't have that impact.
Gunslinger777, 23 Oct 2017G4 and G5 had LCD, LCDs do not suffer from burn in so your argument is BSNo the suffered from image retention. Learn what you are talking about before you attack people.
techperson211, 23 Oct 2017Wonder why only Sony phones doesnt encounter this?Sony don't use OLED. Likewise HTC (apart from a few odd models like the A9).
I know that years of marketing spend and puffing-up by reviewers has resulted in many people thinking that anything other than OLED is "inferior" or even "unacceptable", but different technologies have different pros and cons. Few longevity worries has always been a pro for LCD.
People need to watch out iPhone X which uses same P OLED panel for display which is famous for burn-in issue. Paying $1500 and getting such imperfect products may become new features of flagship mobiles. Battery swelling, battery bursting, display popping,now burn-in ! More expensive the products, more problems they seem to have that too with shelf-life of not more than 7-8 months of flagship nature!
Gunslinger777, 23 Oct 2017G4 and G5 had LCD, LCDs do not suffer from burn in so your argument is BSI've had an G4. And this happened on it. I had the phone almost 3 years. And in the end it was really really bad.
AnonD-690051, 23 Oct 2017who made the screen? i doubt it is samsung's screenLG. But the smaller Pixel 2 uses Samsung's panel.

Profit over quality am glad IÂ’ve skip this the first pixel is still great and is not worth upgrading to this crap
Emc91, 23 Oct 2017Nothing new - all LG phones suffer from this problem. (G4, G5, G6, - just search LG screen bur... moreIsn't the regular one a Samsung Oled? So what would HTC have to do with this specific issue.
And it's kind of ironic. Because the other LG phones were known for image retention but of LCDs.
I'm using first pixel and I have same shit with Google pixel
