Dodgy screens from Samsung
Dodgy screens from Samsung. Looks like the people on Reddit are being given replacements and Apple will bill Samsung for that given these are defective panels.Apple needs to improve quality control at Foxconn though, as these shouldn't be leaving the factory.
This is a known issue with OLED technology (and plasmas and CRT...). There are ways around it and I am sure Apple has used these techniques (pixel shifting etc) but you cant fix a broken display.
If you look on the Internet you will find similar stories with Samsung / LG phones with burn in issues.
