Built-in obsolescence

One thing to note with the recent Samsung and Apple phones is that these devices are really, really fragile and are made of slippery shiny glass with minimal amounts of alloy. So, the people who are likely to see screen burn problems are also the people using these phones outdoors, without a case, in sunlight.

In other words, the people most likely to see problems are also the people most likely to accidentally drop their phones, shatter the glass and screen and get both replaced under warranty or insurance, thus rendering the screen burn issue moot.
