On my S3 that's almost going to be 2 years old now, the status bar has left a ghosted image. So when I'm watching NHL Game center or anything that is full screen its extremely noticeable.

Anyway, I'm going to try an app that flashes RGB in a cycle for the night at full brightness to see if anything changes.

I thought OLEDs weren't prone to burn in?

From Wikipedia :

Plasma displays were once highly susceptible to burn-in, while LCD-type displays are generally less so. Because of the more rapid luminance degradation of current organic compounds used in OLED-type displays, OLED is even more susceptible to burn-in than plasma

Well I ran a program called "Screen Burn-In Tool" that's on Google Play. Set the phone to full brightness, and ran it overnight for about 12 hours.

It's reduced the burn-in significantly. Now it's only really noticeable on a completely Blue screen. Other than that, on other colors it's virtually gone.
