Wow. I didn't notice until today but the status bar icons and time are showing signs of screen burn-in. I didn't even know this was possible with LCD screens. I can clearly see them with a dark blue full screen wallpaper. This is absolutely horrible.

Check yours too, people!

I tested with a blue screen. Phone is 4 months old. I don't have any burn-in screen problem.

Not many believe so, but there's no problem getting burn-in on LCD. It's harder than OLED of course. Just look at the commercial LCD screens all over town and you'll see a lot of burn-in's...

The thing im baffeled over is that you managed to get burn-in on your phone. That means you have your screen on A LOT...

Yeah, it's been ten hours guys. My phone's screen has been off for 9.5+ hours during this whole time. I can still see it.
It's also easy to spot when I pull the notification shade down. That's just... Horrible. I bought mine online so sending it for a replacement is out of the question. I can't live without a smartphone for a couple of weeks (minimum time with such grievances).

AFAIK lcd's don't truly get burn in but they persistence which should eventually fade. I'd imagine a defective screen is something acompletely different though.

It's usually ghosting on LCD. It should be reversible. Maybe play some movies or something.
