    I had the Galaxy Nexus before owning the Moto X. On my Galaxy Nexus, the notification bar, onscreen buttons, persistent search bar and even Instagram are burned into the screen. Is there anyway to stop that from happening to my Moto X?

    I'm not aware of the newest generations of displays having burn-in problems. Maybe someone else can chime in but I think you have nothing to worry about.

    I hope not. This display is gorgeous, and once something gets burned into the screen, it's not so appealing.

    I'm in agreement with FoxKat. Not much there to worry about with current gen displays.

    Thanks for the reassurance, I'll come back to this thread at a later date to let you guys know what's up, though you may already know lol.

    It's very slight, but still visible. Sucks for only having it for less than a month.

    This is what my GNEX looks like after 2 years. The only thing about the moto x is the search bar and keyboard aren't burning in.

    My Inc 1 is almost 4 years old and has no burn in on the AMOLED at all.

    In Frys defense, if the GNex taught me anything, it is that no two people have the same experience. So his display could be the one in a million that is having issues.
