Google Puts A Band-Aid On Pixel 2 Faults, Is It Enough?

Google Pixel 2 XL Faces Problem with Slow Charging on a Fast Charging Device

Users of Google's Pixel 2 XL smartphone are complaining, once again, this time that its anti-fingerprint coating is peeling off. Google is yet to acknowledge the issue but we can expect some sort of software patch to fix the issue. Previously, the company released a batch of "pure" Pixel 2 XL without Android. However, a few Pixel 2 XL users on Google's Product Forums and Reddit are claiming that the coating on their phones has already started wearing out. One of the users wrote,"I have the new Pixel 2 (not XL) and the mic stopped working for me".

Some users have pointed that the screen flashing on the Pixel 2 XL doesn't happen every time but does occur frequently. Google has always passed production tasks to an OEM and for the Pixel 2, the production duty is passed to LG.

It's safe to say that the Pixel 2 launch has been a complete disaster, with the two flagship models both subject to an excess of issues.

Multiple users responded to the comment noting that the fix worked for them as well.

Some Pixel 2 owners have reported unresponsive microphones during calls or while using voice assistant.

Popular YouTuber, JerryRigEverything has exposed the poor quality of Google Pixel 2 devices.

And for the latest issue, some of you may have probably experienced it: screen flashing when locking or unlocking the phone.

It doesn't happen on the Pixel 2 but only on the bigger variant. Earlier on several Pixel 2 XL devices were reported to be suffering from screen burn-in issues and now it looks like another issue has cropped up regarding the microphone of the Pixel 2 XL device.

A number of users have reported that blowing into the bottom speaker or USB port seems to solve the microphone issue.

Some users even have reported a unusual screen flashing which happens when you lock or unlock the phone.
