Initially this was the biggest problem.

Seems to be solved, but in an article for an expensive product like this, I'd still like to read some numbers.

Doesn't look solved to me. Rather, looks like it's solved good enough for devices that are seen as more or less disposable, like cellphones and tablets.

62,000 hrs for blue OLEDs. Means 7 years 24/7 running. Means solved for my use cases. My TVs don't come even close to 24/7 runtime. If the OLEDs don't degrade when switched off, I expect a lifespan of at least 20-30 years for my devices. I never had a TV that long.
