Luckily, I don't notice any of these artifacts!

How hard do you need to look to see this? I almost don't want to try looking for them... it might scar my impression of it. Kidding, kidding.

Although, I have my screen set to shut off after 30s of inactivity and I've never left the screen on, unless watching a movie, with a still image for longer than maybe 4-5mins (reading articles, showing people stuff, etc.).

I've had the phone since December 8th (was so excited!) and I'm absolutely in love with the display. I thought I could handle iOS but... I moved from an iPhone 4S to the Nexus and I don't regret it, I hate that operating system.

Handed the iPhone off to my girlfriend and we're both the better for it.

that's the thing, you have to look so incredibly hard and close up at certain brightness levels to see it. Like insanely hard to see. That's why I don't really care much about it. I'll just try to minimize it as best I can with my new nexus.

Sucks to hear that.

I always get afraid of things like this happening.

I tried. I really did. Used both white and gray backrounds on different brightness levels and i still couldn't see this burn in you guys are talking about. Maybe it has something to do with the inconsistencies in amoled screens i've been reading about but my screen isn't showing any of this yet. And neither did my amoled desire which i had for almost 2 years.

burned
I am exchanging my gn tomorrow because of burn-in of status bar, unlock icon and clock. I believe my mistake was always plugging it in and setting it on my desk face up. I turned the phone off for a couple of hours and the images are still clearly visible immediately after turning back on. There should be some kind of automatic motion to the charging / unlock screen to prevent this.

Use a launcher the hides the notification bar. This is a problem with all the amoleds. Not sure about the Plus but all the previous Nexus's had it as well as the Galaxy S.

I just hide the bar when not in use.
