    Clock display when in charging POD, prolonged bad for screen ?

    Advertisement



    Hi all,

    Not sure if this is a stupid question , but if I charge the Bold in the pod and the clock display goes on , does it cause any damage to the screen ( in the long run ) when in bedside mode?

    I heard stories about LCD's and still images ...

    i think that the LCD's these days are pretty safe for NOT burning in... would you all agree?

    I am worried about another thing instead, i have a still glare image in my eyes, a rectangular screen of bold after a couple of minutes of usage, believe it or not, i could even see the image of wallpaper sometimes....the brightness is 50 already. Maybe the screen is too good for me.

    Another question when charging the Bold in the pod... is it bad for the battery if we leave it in the charging pod even after it's fully charged?

    The bold charges really quickly like in 1 hour

    All chargers are voltage regulating such that you can't overcharge... No worries, charge all you want. Similarly, whenever your car is running, you are charging it's battery.
