Ahead of its launch, people are already starting to ask; does the Samsung S95C suffer from burn in? We’re here to answer all your questions on this very subject!

Burn-in – the bane of TV enthusiasts everywhere! If you’re not familiar with the term, burn-in is a nuisance that many people fear, where static images or logos can get “burned” into the screen, leaving a faint but noticeable shadow or ghost image behind. It’s a common problem with OLED TVs in general, but is the Samsung S95C immune to this issue?

Here is the answer.

Is the Samsung S95C at risk of burn in?

First, OLED technology is more prone to burn-in than other display types, such as LED ones. This is because each pixel on an OLED panel emits its own light, so if an image remains the same for a long period of time, those pixels can, in theory, wear out unevenly, causing the burn-in effect.

With that being said, Samsung does not take the risk of burning in on its newest models lightly. Samsung S95C has the Pixel Shift function, which subtly changes the position of the pixels over time to prevent them from wearing out.

This is a common technique used by most OLED TV manufacturers these days, and it does help to minimalize the risk of burn-in to some degree.

Other ways the S95C is at risk

Another way Samsung makes getting the burn-in on the S95C much harder is through its QD-OLED technology, which incorporates a layer of quantum dots into the OLED panel. The idea is that the quantum dots will help to distribute the wear and tear on the pixels more evenly, reducing the risk considerably.

So, with all of these measures in place, does the Samsung S95C have burn-in issues? Well, the short answer is that we don’t know yet. The TV is still yet to start being shipped (at the end of February). So no one can say that it’s completely immune to the problem, of course – it’s always a possibility with OLED TV types – but it does seem that Samsung has taken steps to minimize the risk as much as possible.

That being said, you should take precautions to avoid burn-in on any TV, regardless of the technology. Don’t leave one image for far too long on the screen – logos are the worst causes of the burn-in, generally. If you have to, use the screensaver, or remember to turn off your Samsung S95C when you aren’t using it.
