What Is AMOLED Burn in?

If you see uneven or blotchy color on the screen, then your phone is ‘suffering’ from a burn in. Every pixel within the AMOLED consists of blue (sometimes white), green, and red sub pixels.

Whenever they produce light, they would decay. The burn in happens because the each of these sub pixels have lost brightness within different rates, depending on the color.

The most used sub pixels that emit light (like for status or navigation icon, would wear out first, which leads to the uneven light production.

Basically, the more often you use the phone, the more visible the burn in would be. The longer you display the (same) image, the more that outline would stay on the display.

In general, blue would decay the fastest. Red is considered the most durable, and then green. So, blue is the weakest. If you want to prevent such a thing, all of these methods are aimed to deal with the (failing) blue sub pixel.
