New Iphone X is Apple's first mobile with oled screen. Samsung started using the technology many years ago in the Galaxy S series, and many other Android manufacturers have also chosen Oled in their flagship models. Apple has hitherto been holding lcd.
According to tests by, among others, Displaymate, the wait has not been in vain. The screen on Iphone X is the best ever in a mobile, but how hard Apple has worked, it's impossible to think that oled not only implies deeper black and better colors.
One of the disadvantages of oled compared to lcd The technique is that it may suffer from burned images. Just like plasma tv, a still image can be "stuck" on screen for a long time and then looks like a spooky veil in other pictures. Unlike plasma TVs, the likelihood is significantly higher for displaying static images on an Iphone, such as text.
Here are some tips to reduce the risk of injury:
- Do not display static images long periods of flash – make sure the screen turns off automatically quite quickly ( Settings -> Display and Brightness -> Auto Lock ) and be careful with auto-locking devices.
- Turn down the brightness if you have to keep the display for a long while with unchanged content. The weaker the light, the lesser ghost images will be visible.
If you've still suffered, there are a few things you can try to try to recover the screen:
- Turn off the phone and leave it off for a while. Then try again.
- If that does not help you can try to have it turned off for a day or two and then use it intensively for a couple of hours, with a very varied image (play games or watch movies for example).
A final resort if you suffer from burned ghost images is to bring the case to Apple. While you have a guarantee, you should receive the proceeds.
