Samsung managed to get mountaineer Kenton Cool to bring a Samsung Galaxy S II with him on a journey up the slippery slope of Mt. Everest. Once at the peak, Cool took out the handset and started tweeting. We presume that Samsung's plan was to show us that if a device like this can make it up Mt. Everest, it can surely last through your daily commute.

Wow, and I thought Sony Ericsson's ways to promote their android handsets (Marija Sharapova etc.) were retarded. This is just LAME!

OLED display is really amazing thing, but Lifespan and Burn-in effect is essential disadvantages of it. And it is pretty serious disadvantages. Sad because SAMSUNG Galaxy S II is really good device. :(

Yea, lifespan is no problem cause even at 50k hrs with 24x30x12=8640 hrs a yr and that is with screen on all the time 24/7. So it would take pretty much 5 yrs to hit approx 50k, I don't think now days some one keeping their phones more then 5 yrs. As for burn-in, even lcd/crt have burn-in, we all should know by now how to deal/prevent burn-in if you don't then a person should not buy these $$$$$$ type of phones or tvs no matter who makes them.

LCD's exhibit a similar phenomenon called "Image Persistence", which is sometimes confused with "Burn-In" effect. Also "Image Persistence" effect is NOT PERMANENT unlike "Burn-In" effect. Talking about OLED's lifespan, degradation of current organic compounds doesn't happen instantly! The biggest technical problem for OLED's is the limited lifetime of the organic materials. Organic compounds degradate all the time and it is only question of the time when it will be noticed. Actually, if you make some Google searches, you will find many witnesses about OLED screens, and there are many witnesses saying that OLED screens lose brightness really quickly. And this brightness decrease seems to never stop. There is no communication that says that these problems have been solved for the future, and so it seems to be no reason to think it could be different in products to come in the near future.
