Agree. "Burn in" isn't a thing on phones anymore. Honestly it never really was a big thing on phones. It might happen occasionally but it was never anywhere near a common thing. Tu burn something in an image must remain static on the screen for a long time. That alone is hard to do.

Doh! You're right. So the XR is .03 inches thinner the the XS.That's still a pretty thin backlight.

"Burn-in" is really a holdover from the plasma TV era. In normal usage, modern smartphones do not "burn-in."

Burn in mainly only happens on display models nowadays. They are in much different conditions that a person would normally use a phone.
