LG also uses PWM dimming in there (last 2 years) OLED smartphone screens!!
i just created a thread about my vision is deteriorating since last year which coincides with me started using iphone X.
I don't have a iPhone X, but when I got my first iPhone, it was a 6, which is 4.7 Inches, and I had it 3 days, had major headache issues, nauseated, just sick feeling, and it was weird, as I had one of the HTC 4.7 Inch Phones a few yrs before then with no issue, but before the 6 I had a Note 3(5.7 or something like that), so maybe thats why I had issues, eventually took it back and got as 6+, now have a 7+, can't go below a 5.5 Inch screen, plus I have motion sickness, which is sucks, and vertigo at times.
I bought the iPhone X the other day and have been having the same symptoms as those in this thread.
Is there any solution or must I simply trade it in?
Get your eyes checked? Maybe progressive reading glasses?
I am very migraine sensitive headaches and need prism lens. Thought the X was an issue but then so too with Samsung iris recognition Note 8 and s8+
No trouble after a month with iPhone X.
No solution at this time other than to return and buy an iPhone 8 which doesn’t have PWM.

It’s more complex than that but yes I’d personally advise the best option is to wait for the next generation models and see if they’re improved.

Im so relieved I have not gotten headaches from the screen. Beacause its a beautiful screen that makes the LCD on my old 7 Plus look washed out in comparison. It’s impossible to go back now.
It's the OLED screen. How long have you had the phone?
Do we really know that LG mobile displays haven't been/won't be used with PWM?
I've never had vision problems before the iPhone X.
Are you saying that all I have to do is wait a month and it'll stop causing me problems?
That's a real shame. I love the iPhone X.
Are you replying to me, sorry?
If so, I've had the phone for two days.
The thread starter is who I'm replying to.
But with you having the phone for two days, have your eyes been feeling strained from it? Just wondering so I'll know if I ever get an OLED phone.
They have. I've felt nauseous and had headaches as well.
This is slightly turning me off from using an OLED phone now. But with how quickly technology is progressing seems like I'll be forced to use it soon. :/
Yeah. But there a lot of people who seem to be fine using an OLED phone. Maybe you're one of them.
I think it also might be just using it over time. Like your eyes will adjust to it - similar to how they adjust to light and darkness.
Yeah. I'd love for my eyes to adjust because I adore the iPhone X but I don't want to risk damaging my eyes by waiting.
Trust me, you should be more concerned if your eyes adjust. I’m still recovering. It’s not a positive for your eyes to adjust to something it shouldn’t have to adjust to.
I'm sorry to hear that. Can I ask how long you've been recovering for?
I double checked and was surprised to see that I stopped using iPhone X almost three weeks ago yet my eyes still feel uncomfortable. Suffice to say I am growing genuinely concerned.
Has anyone actually taped over the IR emitters on the notch to see if Face ID and/or proximity sensor infrared radiation is harming their eyes?
I don't disagree that the OLED dimming is also a problem for some people. I honestly think both are causing different problems.
And apologies if the "tape over the IR" has been tested in this discussion, I kinda checked out for a while and wanted to see if this was resolved yet.
Damn. I hope you will be alright.
Some like me are having a much less painful experience with there X after switching true depth camera off .
Switch off for unlock is a pain so I’m using that again but have no problems , it’s the awareness future that’s causing the most pain .
Yeah, IR is really not harming your eyes.
