Good stuff Found this in the recommendation part of the play store and tried it out on my week old Nexus 6p. I keep the brightness pretty low and use Lux to control it dynamically, but to my surprise there was some slight navigation bar burn-in. I used this app for a few minutes and it removed the issue. Now, I'm not sure if it fixed it or if it just evened out the burn-in, but I can't see the nav in the test now.
It works. Just don't expect a miracle. Burn in on amoled is basically the pixels being worn in at different rates. So, in the nexus 6 case, every hour your navbar is being displayed, the black portion is not wearing and the white icons are. So if your navbar is on 1.5 hours a day that would equal about 45 hours a month. To offset this you would need to run the app for many hours depending on your brightness level.
Does nothing This app contains a link to your Android's accessibility options, where you are instructed to enable inverted colors. This done, you then touch "hide settings" & - wait for it - nothing. But hey, now I know how to make my phone look like the Tales From the Darkside intro, so that's cool.
I picked up a 3 month old used Note 4. Ex owner only used facebook on full brightness and burned in status bar. Meaning status bar area still had out of the box brightness. So I had to run the app for many many hours, to bring the status bar to the same wear level as the rest of the screen (makes sense). Ran it several hours a day, a total of more than 20 I think. And this is for a 4 month old phone. So don't expect it to work in several minutes.
Does what it says It 100% will fix or reduce the effects of a burnt in AMOLED display, used this on my Nexus 6 to reduce the effects and now using it on my pixel XL before I see the effects of unused pixels. Only recommendation to developer would be a setting to automatically run the app at the users chosen time so it can run for eg. 2 hours from 3am-5am without having to wake up and Manually turn this on.
Awesome Nice work man. And the app does work easy and simple. I used it on a 3 week old nexus 6 yeah only 3 weeks old bought it new so the panels are rubbish but this fixed it. From now on i will do it once a week for 10 mins and it should be like nothing ever happened.
- Automatically runs this app once invert colors is checked
- A fun new look
- Added a new burn-in tester
