The much awaited iPhone X is out and has so far performed excellently. The phone which was released to mark Apple’s 10th year anniversary in the mobile world has made fans fall in love with it all over the globe.
Google has taken heat over burn-in on its Pixel 2 XL, and Apple has acknowledged that there might be some problems associated with the screen on its iPhone X. there were some concerns after Google’s new Pixel 2 XL phones suffered what experts call burn-in-trace as previous images were retained on its screen.
Google tackled this issue by doubling the length of the warranty of those phones, even though that still hasn’t solved the problem. It happens that Apple’s iPhone X also has an OLED screen, a screen that was modeled with Samsung’s AMOLED process, with Apple opting not to use Google 2 XL’s as it is known to draw on LG’s POLED system of functioning.
Mobile phone developers have been looking for ways to ensure that their gadgets stay ahead of their competitors, thus offering customers anything that will push them ahead. Brighter, shinier screens are one such perceptual jewel that is used to lure customers.
Earlier on Friday, Cupertino proceeded to update its display support page to make it clear to users that iPhone X might be affected by a little image retention, much similar to Google’s Pixel 2 XL. Apple has, however, come out to deny that as the company stated that iPhone X screen is “the best OLED display that has ever shipped in a smartphone.” The company further stated that the screen was specially designed to ensure that the display beats every other phone at reducing the effects of a burn-in.
The company further explained that “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.”
Apple was contacted to give additional information but no response was received from the company. The reviews for their latest phone had been very exciting.
