News Steam Deck OLED is vulnerable to burn-in — but only if you use it wrong


Mar 7, 2022
This is still a concerning timeframe. The switch's OLED lifespan is much more comfortable, though I too hate the idea of any burn-in at all.

While I'm sure some people prefer having the full OLED experience at the cost of longevity, I'd prefer if the brightness was capped at a lower value by the firmware to ensure longer life.

Perhaps valve could make a BIOS setting so that casual users would be unlikely to lower the life of their device while allowing advanced users to unlock the full potential of the screen.
