Weeks after reports suggested that Google’s newly launched premier smartphone Pixel 2 XL may be facing display burn-in problem and company assurance that it was seriously investigating the issue, new reports are emerging that users are facing premature screen burn-in and seeing a bluish tint and some are apparently having trouble with its responsiveness.
Engadget reported that a Pixel 2 community website have revealed that some units are having issues getting their phones to register touches near the edges of the screen. One poster even conducted a test and found that while the edges on his display can recognize swipes just fine, they can’t always recognize taps.
Tech news portal like Android Police, it happens because the device’s accidental touch protection feature is just bit too effective. The good news is that it’s a software issue, and Google is already working on a fix. Orrin, a Pixel 2XL Community manager, posted on the thread to inform people that the Pixel team is already investigating and addressing the problem in an upcoming over-the-air update.
To pre-empt similar complaints about bluish or greenish tinted screens and burn-ins, Apple recently updated its support page to explain that those are perfectly normal for OLED displays like the iPhone X’s and Pixel 2 XL’s. Nevertheless, iPhone X’s screen seems to come with its own set of issues. Some of them have a nasty green line going down their edges, while others stop responding to touches in cold temperatures.
