Burn-ins on your AMOLED screen are the worst. They are just absolutely terrible. There is nothing worse than seeing a ghost on your phone for all eternity. The good news is that you don’t have to site idly by while your OCD goes crazy.
One Brendon Sled has taken it upon himself to fix your devices unfortunate screen. AMOLED Burn-in Fixer is an app designed to be effective and easy to use.
The basic idea behind the app is to invert the colors of your status bar and/or navigation bar (depending on which location is showing signs of burn-in) to reverse the eye sore.
There are three easy steps to fixing these burn-ins. Install, Test and Fix. It is that simple.
Step one, install the app from the Google Play Store for free. You can either search “AMOLED Burn-in Fixer” or make use of the widget at the bottom of this post.
Step two, test your screen for signs of burn in. You just follow the yellow brick road on this one. Tap the “Test Burn-in” tab, then select “Hide UI”. You will be presented with a solid gray background that will reveal any burn-ins to you. This will most likely be around the status bar and navigation bar areas as previously stated.
Step three, fix all the things! Once you determine the areas that require doctoring, go back to the “Fix Burn-in” tab and select the locations you require. Then, follow the instructions on screen. Enable inverted colors in your system settings and hide the app settings.
Everything is simple and painless. You just have to leave the inverted screen up until the signs of any burn-in are reduced to your satisfaction.
Unfortunately, the app only installs on Lollipop devices.
