    I have the newer Galaxy SII. It has a slightly bigger Super AMOLED screen.
    Unfortunately, I got a nasty burn-in in the notification menu on the top as
    well. I've only had it for a couple of months. I don't notice it during normal
    use. However, if I play a video, which uses the whole screen, I can see a
    faint image of the notification bar. (especially if the video is display a white
    image, like clouds...)

    Of course, I always knew that LCDs, even the newer ones suffer from this
    type of problems. One of my LCD TVs at home(a Samsung 32") is used
    to play 4:3 DVDs 99% of the time. Guess what? After just half a year, the
    left and right sides(unused except in 16:9 videos) are much brighter than
    the middle(4:3) section. Like I said, I knew this was going to happen.

    Ill have to keep an eye on my new Galaxy SII Skyrocket. I honestly didn't know AMOLED could get burn in. Never thought about it.

    It's technically not a burn-in, but I'm not sure the correct term is.

    My Galaxy SII is always on maximum brightness because it is connected to a fixed
    charging dock in my truck 90% of the time. (which means the screen is on all the
    time) Since I discovered the "burn-in" image on the top menu bar, I have set it
    to turn off the screen after a few minutes and also play a lot of videos... hoping to
    reverse the problem... or at least make it less noticeble.

    All this back and forth is driving me crazy! Just take a pic and that will answer everyone's questions. Our TouchPads have a built in screen shot, just hold the home button down for a second then press the power button. The screen shots will be in your pictures.

    Uhm, just so you know...

    You can't take a screenshot of burn-in or image retention. It's a hardware problem. You know, as in a problem with the LCD itself, not the picture being displayed to it. As in, the image remains on the screen even when the power is turned off.

    Would you take a screenshot after taking a hammer to the LCD and expect it to reflect the damage?
