Default Status bar burn In

Thanks to this powerful beast my phone almost replaced my laptop lol.. i had my phone for almost four months now and i use it heavily for media, texts, chat and heavy internet browsing..

now i noticed i have status bar screen burn.. i noticed it when checking using *#0#*.. its not visible in the red and green screen check but it is noticeable in blue.. the status bar has "lighter" blue than the rest of the screen..

This can't be a serious question? How can we see "Screen Burn" on an internal image screenshot

I had this issue due to using waze 3-4 hours a day.

Only way to fix was to get screen replaced under warranty. I'm still weary in using waze again though.

Lol why are you providing a screenshot? screenshots won't show screen issues, they're internal images.. ._.
On that note, no "tool" is going to fix this, since you had to open *#0#* to even notice this, it's not a problem - if it becomes a problem and you have warranty they'll change it.

How the hell are we going to see a hardware issue on a software screenshot?

That said, mine appears to have it too in the test menu.. Looks more like something intentional if you ask me. I have had the notification bar set to transparent since day 1. (As such there is no possible means by which it could have burned in.)

The simplest solutions are often the cleverest. They are also usually wrong.
