I've had my GS3 for about a year now and I'm seeing some unfortunate burn-in on the lower row of icons (the ones that don't move from screen-to-screen), and the main clock/weather widget, particularly when the screen is all white (as in bringing up a web page in my browser).

I was very surprised to see this, especially since I do NOT leave the screen on just at the home menu screen, my timeout is set to 1 min, but I'll hit the button to kill the screen most times.

I was under the impression that the newer screens, like on the GS3 and other phones were not supposed to even get burn-in like this? How many others are seeing this?

I've had burn in on mine for a while. The top status bar is burned in a little and a Reddit icon from the Reddit Is Fun app. Not too easy too see unless you go to a bright screen and look for it, but it's there. It's been like that for about 6 months and I got the phone last September.

Wife had the same issue, Sprint replaced the screen under insurance. Didn't have to ship it off or pay anything.

Crazy didn't even know that was still an issue with today's display tech. I have yet to see it happen on any of my Samsung phones.

I've got a little bit of burn in. In the right light and a white background you can just make out Poweramp controls.

Well what about this app called "burn in tool"? I'm reading good user reviews about it... Is it just a placebo effect?
