Oh man, sorry for such response to your very first forum post, but I'm nominating you for a master of sane arguments :roll: Ever heard of anything burned into phone LCD screen?

I have been using a Samsung S6 edge since April 2015. I have just started to notice the time and the Waze arrow have burned into my screen. Like many, I use Waze daily for 2+ hrs per day. It sits on a mountek and would have sunlight hitting it. I used an HTC One M7 for over a year with Waze and had no burn. This is very disappointing. I think Samsung and Waze are mutually responsible.

Agreed that this is not Waze's fault, but knowing that there are issues with this screen type and knowing the typical use case (App stays on screen for long periods), waze should offer additional solutions, like periodically moving, hiding, or changing the colors used on persistent images.
At a minimum, there should be a warning, if not already there.

I have a Nokia Lumia 1020 and use my Waze 30 min each way to work and home. I now have screen burn-in from using waze :(

They should hide anything consistently showing on the screen.

I remain unimpressed by AMOLED tech (for now). In the earlier days even the standard Android status bar (being a static element) would lead to burn-in in this area. As I recall Samsung changed the colours used in the status bar to lessen this affect in later iterations of their phones. All a bit "tail wagging the dog" - trying to find work-arounds because the technology can't quite cope with delivering the standard Android design approach - if you see what I mean...

And as I recall the AMOLED colours degrade over time at different rates Blue, Green, and then Red too - so the software in the phones has to drive the fading colours proportionately harder over time to maintain overall colours correctly.

But Samsung have the lion's share of the Android market and have produced millions of AMOLED screens, so it can't all be bad. ;-)
