Alright, so I got a quick question for you guys! I bought a Lenovo Legion Y520 in January 2019 and around June, I started seeing image retention. Or screen ghosting. Like, after staying a few minutes on a web page or literally anything that has white areas, after changing the image to gray (for example google.com page, because I'm using a dark theme), I can still see the white areas from before. It's not burn in, because it's not permanent. After normal usage or after turning off the display for a few minutes, it goes away. I can only see it on gray apparently, so it's not that big of a deal when doing other stuff on my laptop, because it's not visible. But my question is, should I be worried about this? Does it get worse over time? I still have warranty, should I use it?

I think it's IPS Glow you are talking about.

As specs sheet says it has Full HD LED Backlit Anti-glare IPS Slim Display screen there something that said as IPS Glow you will Notice on the corners when the screen is Full Black in the Dim Room

Try playing a dark video on the full screen mode from and check does it seems like what i am talking about?

If you mean backlighting, yeah, it has some, but not noticeable. I think it has around the corners, but it is not what I meant. What I am talking about is like burn in, but it is not permanent. For example I have a web page with some white accents opened for a few minutes. If I go to google.com (as I said, I have a dark theme, so the background color is gray), I can still see the white areas from before. Similar to brun in, but it goes away after normal usage or turning off the screen for a few moments. I'm sorry if I'm not being clear.
