Google is actively investigating a Pixel 2 XL display issue

Google's Big-Screened Pixel 2 XL May Have Big Screen Problems

Some of these malfunctions might be due to the fact that, the Google hasn't correctly calibrated the display on the Google Pixel 2 XL, in fact, the standard Pixel 2 uses a 5.0-inch IPS LCD screen and there are no reported issues with respect to the display at all.

This screen burn-in is more visible on a gray background as a faint outline on the navigation buttons found at the bottom.

If you're mulling the Pixel 2 XL for your next smartphone upgrade, you may want to think twice, or at least put your decision on hold for a few days.

Google stated it is looking into the problem: "The Pixel 2 XL screen has been designed with an advanced POLED technology, including QHD+ resolution, wide color gamut, and high contrast ratio for natural and attractive colors and renderings".

Google is now actively investigating these cases, so we should get a definite answer soon. At this point, however, most signs point toward screen burn-in on the Pixel 2 XL.

Tampa Police increase patrols in Seminole Heights
Investigators are searching for a person who was seen in surveillance video near the area the night that Mitchell was killed. In less than two weeks, three people were shot to death within the tight-knit Seminole Heights community.

Days prior to launching in India, reports have been surfacing about major display problems with Google Pixel 2 XL review devices.

The last time Google made new alarm, notification, and ringtone sounds for Android was for the original Pixel and Pixel XL. The company issued a statement to multiple media houses and said that it is aware of Pixel 2's screen issue. According to several sources, reports are popping up about "screen burn-in", a problem that supposedly went away with the death of CRT displays. The issue only seems to affect the Pixel 2XL's "plastic" or "pOLED" display, the smaller Pixel 2 uses a different and older kind of OLED technology known as AMOLED. However, typically, it takes years before your smartphone, laptop, TV or PC display will suffer a burn-in.

In fairness, Google isn't directly manufacturing the Pixel 2, instead handing off the responsibility to HTC.

"Today, we're proud to introduce the Google Pixel 2, designed for you, with the best Google built in", Google's vice president of product management Mario Queiroz said at the unveiling event. Have you been told to wait for your Pixel 2 device?
