Especially with TV logo's they are almost always on the same corners. Also remember that your own experience most of the time doesn't represent the overall experience of people.
Please don't spread misinformation. You need to watch thousands of cumulative hours of specific content with static elements such as CNN os MSNBC logos of individual video game HUDs to develop burn-in on LGs WOLED TVs.
LG has now sold a total of close to 10 Million WOLED TVs and the total number of customers whose viewing habits have resulted in burn-in is probably not much over 1000 (certainly far less than 10,000).
The excellent work done by rtings.com has proven that increased light output increases the aging rate, so burn-in at 380cd/m2 peak will occur after 2800 hours of cumulative CNN viewing but with light output decreased to 200cd/m2 peak will extend the cumulative hours of CNN to develope equivalent levels of burn-in to 4740 hours: https://www.rtings.com/tv/learn/real...d-burn-in-test
In addition, the rtings.com 2016 burn-in test has proven that typical/random content results in no signs of burn-in after 10,580 cumulative hours (and counting): https://www.rtings.com/tv/learn/perm...rn-in-lcd-oled
Only people whose viewing habits are exceedingly non-random and include thousands of hours of static element viewing need to be cocerned about burn-in on WOLED (especially if they view with light output cranked up to max).
If you are not a heavy gamer, a cable-news junkie, or stream all of your content with subtitles enabled, you have little reason to be concerned about burn-in on WOLED.
WOLEDs age very randomly from random content and you really need to view a great deal on non-random content (especially static logos and HUDs) before you will cause differential aging.
As far as overall aging and lifetime, the 2016 WOLED is now past 10,000 hours without any signs of brightness degradation or color gamut degredation, compared to the IPS LED/LCD which started losing brightness at 4000 hours and started losing color gamut at 7000 hours.
There are some use cases / viewing habits that are better suited to burn-in-immune viewing on LED/LCD, but the 99.9% of us that primarily use our TVs to view random content really have nothing to worry about (especially if streaming and bluray movies dominates your viewing time).
