Varied content is key, in fact, if you watch a variety of normal TV, movies, fullscreen games etc., you have no reason to worry. Even pausing a movie or game, and even forgetting it and falling asleep is still not the problem for OLED.It does matter though, as varied content will excercise the pixels more evenly and the wear will be less noticable.
But the key aspect of the varied content is that the overall brightness evens out, not how long each picture is shown on the screen.
If you watch a variety of content where one section of the screen is significantly brighter, you will get some extra unevenness over time. Whether the user watches this content in long sessions or in 5 second sessions is irrelevant.
But if you choose to show a slideshow of static pictures which overall balances out, even if you show each one for hours at the time, it will be no problem.
So care about the overall brightness of the content to be viewed, not whether pictures are static or not, get it?
For most buyers, this will not be a concern at all. OLED is much more tolerant to uneven wear than plasma ever was (even the last gen Panasonics), to the point that it's really just the extreme edge cases where OLED is a poor choice.
- TVs showing mostly a single news/sports channel with a "fixed" layout.
- PC users with the majority of screen time with a bright web browser covering only parts of the screen.
