After the successful launch of its latest smartphone Pixel 2, Google seems to be landing itself in troubled waters with users reporting issues. It was last month Google announced the successor for Pixel, the new bezel-less Pixel 2 XL with a display made by LG and the Pixel 2 built by HTC with a new design and upgraded specs. Google has started shipping out the phones to customers who have pre-ordered the smartphones and things aren’t looking bright for the search giant.
It was just a few days ago users reported of the screen burn issue related to Pixel 2 XL. Google choose to go with the OLED panels made by LG for the Pixel 2 XL.choosing to be different from Apple and most other smartphone manufacturers who use LCD technology. To matters worse, it turns out the display made by LG are full of color accuracy issues along with the burn-in process. Earlier though Google said it was an error on part of the quality control team which allowed a substandard phone to be shipped out for delivery.
This time the users are reporting their Pixel 2 devices randomly makes weird noises. This time the users are reporting their Pixel 2 devices randomly makes weird noises. The complaint suggests that the device makes clicking noise when unlocked and also other high pitched noises when on a call. A complaint has not been reported related to Pixel 2, its owners of Pixel 2 XL who are reporting similar problems with their devices. The reported issue seems to be a software related and it means Google will be able to address it with software updates. Google has promised the user to rectify the issue by next week, though there is no immediate solution disabling the NFC will solve the clicking noise issue temporarily.
Google has earlier received amazing reviews for the Pixel smartphones and had a loyal following, but even those smartphone had to face a few hiccups at the time of the launch. The issues related to Pixel 2 XL seem to be serious especially the display woes and the availability issue of the new Pixel smartphones, which makes buying a new Pixel 2 phone right now is arguably a bit painful.Probably it’s best to wait and watch the things sorted out in the days to come.
