The Nintendo Switch OLED, a new and better version of the standard model with a better screen, was one of the reasons it kept going strong. Many people liked the new system, but some were worried about the possibility of burn-in affecting the quality of the images. So, a tech fan decided to find out how long this new screen could last.
In a video from March 7, a well-known YouTuber called WULFF DEN talked about an interesting experiment he had done with a Nintendo Switch OLED. Burn-in was the goal.
He put a screenshot from Zelda: Breath of the Wild on the screen for the test. Interestingly, he chose an image that had a lot of colours, like blue, to see if there was any burn-in.

Before he could charge it, he put it on a charging stand. He then waited for a long time.
When WULFF DEN played the Nintendo Switch OLED for about 3,600 hours, he said that the screen had started to get a dark spot on it.
To show how the problem began, he went to the home screen. Once he was there, he noticed that the screen still had a blue tint. Even though he had moved away from the previous screenshot. However, the YouTuber said that the burn-in was still very low even after many hours of use.

Which is likely one of the reasons why Nintendo Switch sales keep going strong. We’ll interested to see if WULFF DEN decides to try out other parts of the system as time goes on.
