My Note 8 had it's one year birthday last month. Just today, I became aware of very noticeable image retention from Google maps. The crazy thing is I told my wife that switching from Apple was such a great choice because the display is so fantastic. Then this happens.
What are the chances that screen burn in will be fixed by Samsung repair without it monetarily justifying a switch back to an iPhone?
Will all Samsung phones have screen burn in after a year? Is my screen issue just normal?

Hi there @NOHCHO and @usertvIszHsb8G, with screen burn-in issues you are going to want to have a technician look at the device so they can diagnose the problem. You can visit a uBreakiFix location if one is local to you or you can send the device into our service center. If you are unsure about your warranty status you can private message us here with your full model code and IMEI number so we can check that for you.
I can't make any guarantees, but I can see what I can do. Mind shooting me a message here with the model code and IMEI of the phone?
The image fromone of my previous wallpapers is burned into my screen. I did not notice it until i selected a lighter wallpaper. I have read that there were software pushes to fix this. Is that the only option out there? Aside from buyting a new phone?
Burn in after 1 year is pretty out of the norm. My note 8 is just as old (i think older) and I've got no burn in at all. Try calling your carrier and seeing if they will swap it out and within the 1 year warranty. If not then I'd call Samsung cause 1 year is just... not normal. And a few note 8s did have abnormal burn in issues so I'd see what they say
Could I get your IMEI number and Full model code in a private message?
