The UP header is burned into your screen :unsure:
What phone do you have?

I haven't had burn-in in a phone since I last had a Samsung Galaxy Nexus back in 2011-2013. AMOLED displays back then had major potential for burn-in and other display issues over time.

I haven't experienced any significant problems with the LCD displays on any iPhones I've had. I had a single iPhone 5S from 2013-2019!

Samsung 9+ now, before this I had S7. Last 3 phones were latest samsung and all had the same issue.

Could be worse. Imagine if you're watching porn and it gets burned in :eek: .

I'll never switch to iphone 😐🔫

When my kids say stuff I don't like, so I tell them I'm locking their thread.
Would work on me :cryin:
I quit gaming when I did something similar in the 90s.
Oh when playing ddr I can still see the arrows running across my eyes. It's crazy.

I started late with a 3GS and have been an iPhone guy ever since. Currently 11ProMax. It's almost too big. :smiles:
I actually started with a pretty similar device: the iPod touch 3rd generation. I loved it but I never got an iPhone until Google-compatible apps became available and the standard Apple apps got better.

I had an iPod touch before I ever got my first smartphone and data plan.

The MotionX GPS app was superior in many ways to both Google and Apple apps when Apple finally let google maps in. Unfortunately it was a paid service and once Google was in they threw in the towel since it's hard to compete with free.

It's almost hard to believe how mediocre Apple Maps was early on, even when it used Google Maps data. Google Maps took years to get better on iOS but it was pretty usable on Android from Android 2.3 onward if I remember correctly.

Apple Maps is actually pretty decent now and I use it a lot.

I'd go back to MotionX for sure if they came back today. Years later it's still better. But I changed the navigation voice to Cougar and she was lots of fun. :)

But the software seems more restrictive than Android
if one is supporting a family with many devices andriod is pure junk. Apple is much much better from a support point of view when there are a bunch of devices involved among a group.

In my very limited experience with Apple...
I've had good experience there, primarily with Envy and secondarily with Gala. :biggrin:
(but seriously, have you tried Envy?)

In my very limited experience with Apple, the hardware seemed top notch. But the software seems more restrictive than Android. Which is why I've always gone with the latter.
Yeah, it is definitely more restrictive, but way less so than it used to be.

I found that I used to prefer the cold convenience of Google, and now I accept the warm and restrictive embrace of Apple. My home screen on my iPhone no longer has any Google products on it besides YouTube - it's almost all Apple and plenty of iOS-focused independent developers (OmniFocus, Reeder, iA Writer, Weather Line, Soulver).

I basically now only use Google for Gmail, Maps and YouTube. Even for searching, I almost always use DuckDuckGo. For smaller software needs I use whatever I feel like, but usually not Google or Microsoft anymore. When Google killed Google Reader, I lost so much trust.

As far as hardware, since 2012, I've had a Mac, iPod or iPhone, as well as an iPad that is still going strong since 2014. The hardware is working very well for me over time, and I no longer have hardware regrets like I used to with other manufacturers. Everything I have lasts me for years and the only thing that degrades significantly is the battery (like with any device).
