In a recent development, Reddit users have raised concerns about potential screen burn-in issues with devices running Samsung's One UI 6.
Samsung, known for its efforts to prevent OLED screen burn-in, had incorporated pixel shifting as a feature in One UI 5.
However, it appears that this crucial feature might have been overlooked in the One UI 6 update, which is based on Android 14.
Users on Reddit have begun reporting that the status bar icons no longer shift positions after updating to One UI 6.
The comparison between One UI 5 and One UI 6 screenshots, posted by reddit users (dragosslash).
Note20 Ultra Running One UI 5
S23 Ultra Running One UI 6
Note20 Ultra (One UI 5): Status bar elements moving, indicates OLED burn in protection is working. S23 Ultra (One UI 6): Status bar elements static, no movement.
To test for pixel drifting, Reddit user suggests to take a screenshot with the status bar, rotate the screen between landscape and portrait modes five times, and open screenshot in Samsung Gallery.
The concern is particularly significant for OLED screens, where burn-in can result in permanent discoloration, affecting the overall display quality.
As reported by Reddit users, if burn-in protection is indeed not working in One UI 6, hopefully, Samsung will provide a quick fix soon.
