Google lists many features sported by its larger Pixel 2 XL, from the slimmer bezels to the OLED display to the oleophobic "oil" coating, which is meant to stop fingerprints and smudges appearing on the device.

Those iPhone X trade-in savings aren't half bad, given how popular the "all-screen" device is expected to prove for the holidays, and new Verizon subscribers looking to discard an old handset can now get pretty hefty Pixel 2 and 2 XL markdowns as well. "It does not work when doing normal phone calls and in assistant, voice recognition or voice recording apps".

The issue with the screens of Google's LG, and HTC smartphones are so persistent that Girard Gibbs is investigating claims against the three manufacturers that made the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. A video of the smartphone with the problem has also been revealed. One user reported in Google's Pixel forum, "I'm not sure why, but the Pixel 2 XL screen flashes when unlocking (fingerprint and lock button), when the screen wakes up because of notifications, when the screen dims and the phone locks, and when manually locking". This time, the issue concerns the Google Pixel 2 XL's flashing screen, and the affected users are bothered by this. According to one user, blowing air in the speaker brings back the microphone. Blowing into the speaker like you would an old NES cartridge.

Paul Getty , the industrialist who was named by the the richest living American in1966 by the Guinness Book of World Records . Spacey's career has nosedived since the first allegation of sexual advances were made by actor Anthony Rapp on 30 October.


Pixel 2 XL users have reported the issue on Pixel User Community.

There seems to be no end to the long list of issues related to the new Pixel 2 devices.

The big problem appears to be the screen, which has been subject to reports of screen burn, usually a sign of a cheap display, a black smear on the screen, usually the sign of a cheap display and a bunch of other issues that are... usually the sign of a cheap display. Unfortunately, no software update can stop the degradation of screen coating.
