  1. This is an issue with all OLED/AMOLED displays. There is NO fix unless you burn all the other pixels around the affected area so you can't see it anymore. Why Apple sticks with IPS LCD – LCD's are immune. HTC is using a S-LCD which is also immune.

    Wonder if you have burn in? Google Image Search 'grey' so you can get a nice solid grey image and open it up so its full screen corner-to-corner. Like all the squares and text you see lol.. My Nexus 6 has so much burn in right now. I'm sick of OLED – don't care about overall contrast/power efficiency if I see other crap over everything. The industry is trying to switch to OLED because their cheaper to make – plain and simple.
