Apple admits iPhone X potential OLED problems
It seems that Apple is having the same problem as the Google Pixel 2 XL with the new iPhone X. Burn in and blue shifting problems yet again.
It’s not just the Google Pixel 2 XL that’s experiencing some display issues but Apple seems to be pre-empting the news by saying it first in their support article. It says that their uber expensive iPhone X that starts at USD$1000 will also have the same problems like the blue shifing and burn in. That’s just mind blowing. This means that the Google Pixel 2 which cost $200 less shares the same components and, sadly, the same problems.
In their support article Apple pointed out that their OLED displays can have future problems.
If you look at an OLED display off-angle, you might notice slight shifts in color and hue. This is a characteristic of OLED and is normal behavior. With extended long-term use, OLED displays can also show slight visual changes. This is also expected behavior and can include “image persistence” or “burn-in,” where the display shows a faint remnant of an image even after a new image appears on the screen. This can occur in more extreme cases such as when the same high contrast image is continuously displayed for prolonged periods of time. We’ve engineered the Super Retina display to be the best in the industry in reducing the effects of OLED “burn-in.”
Being the first of the iPhones to have the OLED displays, Apple seems to be in the beta testing phase. Only that the iPhone X is not the usual yearly iPhone release, and it’s not cheap either to have such flaws.
