Hey buddy I found a temporary fix it's stupid but if you want good sleep I'd advise getting a secondary alarm not using your phone. Just turn your phone off and let it charge the screen won't show that annoying charging AOD anymore that's only thing I can say till samsung fixes it
I already have burn in due to this. I can see discoloration on a plain white screen where the indicator sits. I guess Samsung is going to be replacing a lot of brand new phones!
I agree, there needs to be a function to turn everything off while charging. All of my previous phones get screen burn-ins from stuff like this. My note 8 you can see where the weather and time displays were burning the screen, i would guarantee that the charging display while plugged in or qi charging will burn into the screen, even if it shifts pixels over time.
AOD is Always on Display.... Burn in is when an image stays on a screen in same spot, after awhile it burns that image into the screen. You will notice an outline of the image on your screen, even when that inage is no longer on screen. That is what some are worried about with an AOD.
How on earth is this a feature on a $1600 AUD AMOLED phone. I just switched from an apple after 10 years.. great phone samsung but if this isn't fixed ill be going straight back. Let me be the one to decide whether or not I want burn on my screen. Not you
Hi, I found how to disable it,
Settings -> Display -> go to the bottom and search "Show charging information"
Disable it and it will go away
hope it is helpful
