It appears that the problems with Google Pixel 2 XL screen are far from over. Recently, there were stories about a burn-in on the OLED panel and this was followed by reports of some users seeing a screen flash when they unlock the phone. Now, there are reports that the edges of some units of this smartphone are slow to respond. This issue has been a thread on the Pixel User Community website with some users claiming that they have filed a report with Google. A community manager stated that a future OTA update will address this issue.
Artem Russakovskii, member, Pixel User Community said
“I have found it generally hard and unreliable to tap the edge of the screen where the curve is, especially when trying to put a cursor there to edit something on the screen. To the point that I started placing the cursor a cm closer to the center of the phone, then dragging my finger toward the edge. I’m guessing this could be some sort of overzealous accidental touch protection logic, which is why Orrin is saying it’s possible to address it in an OTA. Looking forward to the fix.”
As of now, there are reports that a law firm named Girard Gibbs LLP is recruiting Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL owners who have had issues with the display of this smartphone to build a lawsuit against Google, LG, and HTC. This fresh problem with the screen of the Pixel 2 XL will probably add more users to its portfolio.
