Anyone notice black pixels have a slight delay turning back on?

The feature of oled is that it turns off pixels when showing black. But on the xperia 1 I notice they turn back on a tad bit late compared to colored pixels that are already on. 

 

When scrolling for example and there's black elements they will visibility stretch from where they used to be to where you scrolled to. I never heard anyone about this and googling it brought up nothing too. Nobody noticed this?

Oled ghosting.

It's when the pixel turning back on is slightly slower than the refresh rate of the panel.

Very common and no fix exists for it yet.

All phones/devices suffer from it. It's more obvious in vr devices like PS VR, Samsung Gear VR, Google Daydream.

If you have Netflix app installed you can see it easily in app drawer if you scroll slowly the screen where this app icon is placed you will see that it is not smooth, black blur just behind this icon remains. So black color stays behind it like if it was turning off too late.

I can see this using the method you described.
