Default Samsung Galaxy S Screen Problem

Hi, does anyone else has a big C like a water mark on your phones?

The app is wifi Analyzer.

DONATE TO ME
that looks like a burned in

try running a pure white screen

then a pure black screen

see if you can still spot that C

Donation is appreciated but not required, a cup of Coffee would suffice

That is a burn in. No doubts, you should run some app that does what Allgamer said, and if possible even with RGB colors as well.

That looks suspiciously like the shape of the coloured print on the protective sheet that a brand new galaxy s was shipped with.

I see it only when there is a grey screen or brown screen...

Could it be that the phones have been in the sun with the protective film on?

I remember AMOLED screens being sensitive to light, that light being th ereason for wear. but external sunlight MIGHT also have that effect. When it is the sun with that cover for a few weeks...

possible?

Did you used Invisible Shield? Because those who watered the phone with Invisible Shield got onwed.

I hope you didn't.
