Default [Q] Screen burn in?

Anyone else have issues with screen burn in?

I am having some. On the right hand side the bottom bar has burned into the screen creating a permanent shadow of the bottom bar from when I was using the tablet vertically It is extremely noticeable on dark grey backgrounds.

Anyone else have this happen?

This is grounds for a return yes?

IMO this is unacceptable.

IPS displays can suffer from image persistance. It's quite well documented. You can either run a color strobe or display a white screen for a while to try to release the electric charge built up in and around those pixels.

So this is normal?

It's not burn-in in the traditional sense...it's usually solvable by the above methods...whereas old-school burn-in on crt tubes was permenant due to the technology.

Ill have to do some research on this. Any suggested articles on this particular topic?

Or advice on how to prevent it like optimal screen time usage etc?
