Samsung Galaxy S8 burn-in issue is limited to a single phone so far
What makes this particularly problematic for Samsung and consumers, is that there aren't many options available to repair a screen with a burned-in image. Actually, there are two. You can replace the screen, or replace the phone. Considering that Samsung took a big hit with the recalled Samsung Galaxy Note 7, executives at the company must have their fingers crossed very tightly.
This isn't the first problem that Galaxy S8/Galaxy S8+ users have experienced. So far there was the issue with the screens that came out of the box with a red-tint. Samsung corrected that problem with a software update. Others have had connectivity problems with the Wi-Fi on their unit. Another update will be coming to the rescue.
To reiterate, it would appear that the burn-in issue has been isolated to just one handset. One faulty device should allow Samsung brass to breathe a sigh of relief. But they can't get too complacent. After all, the Galaxy Note 7 fiasco also started with a single unit.
