Samsung Caves in Over Galaxy S3 Screen Defects

Samsung Electronics on Wednesday caved in to customer complaints and pledged to provide free repairs for the new Galaxy S3 smartphone in case of image retention or burn-in problems on the screen.

The company also decided to delete a sentence from the user's manual saying it is not responsible for these problems, claiming it only included the sentence to help customers understand features of the AMOLED screen.

OLED-type displays tend to be susceptible to burn-in problems.
