Since the Samsung Galaxy S8 has no physical home button anymore and instead this is displayed on the screen, some of you may think about whether this can permanently burn into the display.
Basically, this can of course be possible, because at this point the pixels are constantly "loaded". Especially on the Always On Display, this could lead to problems and a lasting damage.
However, Samsung is also aware of this issue and has taken this into account.
The Home Button on the Samsung Galaxy S8 moves minimally in its position. This is not recognizable for the naked eye, but the Home Button is always a little staggered. Thus, not always the same pixels are used, which prevents the display from burning.
If you still think that the Home Button on your Samsung Galaxy S8 has burned into the screen, then please try the following test:
