Screen burn-in is not a new problem for the smartphone users around the world. The pink pixel fades out is one of the common scenarios for those who use Samsung smartphones. This problem occurs after one or two years of usage. But, it’s not acceptable when Google Pixel 2 XL gets gray dead pixels in just one week!
