All the specs in the world won't be any good if you can't QC.
Blaming a technology for the fault of a manufacturer is absurd.
Back in 2018, LG screwed up their batch of displays for the Mate 20 Pro. Did it affect other phones? No.
This year, Samsung is screwing up their displays (both the S20 Ultra & the OnePlus 8 Pro are getting similar green tint issues). Does this problem affect other phones? No.
The people blaming OLED technology or High-Refresh displays are speaking nonsense.
Berserker, 24 Apr 2020Lcd says hello :D These days buying a phone with oled display is like a gamble. Then try to buy an LCD monitor, they all have defective sub pixels and they expect you to live with them. They cost 470-580 euros.
This prove OLED is not that superior compared to LCD which is more reliable and offers high refresh rate at low cost, by adding more leds behind LCD panel(miniled), it can become highly comparable to oled tech.
I had to go through four iPhone 11 Pro Max before I was happy with the screen!
i feel the OnePlus phones were better when they are known as flagship killer but now being a proper flagship they are being killed by not only other but by also themselves

The worst part is that people would pay $999 for a phone with this issue.
But oh well, perhaps the display doesn't matter anyway, so long as there's OxygenOS inside.
While image retention is permanent and can happen any time
image retention isnt permanent - many displays have a panel refresh function that gets rid of image retention
And people still brag about half baked phones like these. OnePlus is a small company who think their product which was built using outsourced components is as fit to be priced along high end Apple and Samsung phones

I wouldn't compare niche products with more popular, mainstream models where low yields become much more apparent, and that thus any issue they have gets publicized.
This is what happens when you streamline the production of a technology with low life to begin with. No more quality assurance.
P-CHM, 24 Apr 2020I think you meant "those with a High Defect Rate display".These problems may appear to all oled displays not only the ones with high refresh rate. Huawei mate 20 pro didn't have high refresh rate but it had this issue
You'd want some sort of compensation if your £1000 phone is doing this.
Would you mind if it cost £600? Probably, but making flagship phones at flagship prices come with expectations, and I think OnePlus might have taken one step too far with these phones.
To charge this much you must have no room for error. I reckon they rushed this out without doing due diligence - remember normally their phones release in May.
Very poor, and has discouraged me from getting this. This, and the fact you can't get every colour over here in the UK, and only certain colours for certain memories. And I'm sure the top spec pro model has never even been in stock!
Happy with my OP6 for now.
P-CHM, 24 Apr 2020I think you meant "those with a High Defect Rate display".Those issues were on Samsung and OnePlus devices. Wasnt a thing on gaming phones if I recall correctly. Its a problem for a few not every user either.

It doesnt have this issue. Why? Phones with this problem appear to be those with a high refresh rate. Probably the "prototype" part is 120Hz displays
