Menu circle burned into screen


I enjoy playing ingress, so the game is open often on my phone. I noticed that the static parts in the screen, especially the round button are now burned into my screen and in other apps I still see a light red shadow of the button. Would it be an option to give the possibility to give the button a less bright colour so the burn in would not happen?

    Yeah I have a faint circle but you should have seen my old phone with a COMM and OPS permanently burnt in. Happened to a lot of people, I think. You could almost read my agent name on it.

    If your phone has an accessibility aid which inverts the colours, one way to combat this is to sometimes play with the colours inverted.

    It is problem with the display technology used.

    Any game or app that is used frequently, with older screen technologies will see "screen burn"

    Samsung themselves have fixed the issue with their more modern devices.

    You should see the screen burn I had on my S3 back in the day 😅
