Some Pixel 2 XL Users Are Reporting An Unusual Screen Flashing Issue

Google shares 10 tips for capturing great portraits on the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL

The new phones, especially the Pixel 2 XL, looked to build upon the success of the original Pixel, but instead they have been repeatedly crashing and burning due to unforeseen issues.

The big problem appears to be the screen, which has been subject to reports of screen burn, usually a sign of a cheap display, a black smear on the screen, usually the sign of a cheap display and a bunch of other issues that are... usually the sign of a cheap display. Another Pixel 2 XL user vented his frustration in a Google+ post where he claimed to notice the issue within hours of purchasing it.

Just to be clear, the oleophobic coating is expected to last years before showing the kind of problems that the affected Pixel 2 XL owners have experienced.

The issue was first brought to light by a Pixel 2 XL user Cynthia O in the Pixel User Community forums.

Rafael Nadal Withdraws From Paris Masters
Zverev, who has won two ATP Masters 1000 titles this season as Nadal did, recorded a comfortable 6-3 win in the first set. The way that I am today I do not see myself playing three more matches. "It's extra motivation to me", said Del Potro.

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. Share us your views by commenting below. Multiple other users also confirmed the solution works.

In another issue reported by Pixel 2 users (and some Pixel 2 XL users), some users are experiencing microphone malfunctions on call - when making calls, the mic doesn't pick anything up.

Google states its aim is not to offer a radical display transformation, rather, add a diverse and striking colour range whilst keeping the Pixel's "untouched palette".

Apparently, blowing into your bottom speaker as you would an old NES cartridge (or really any video game cartridge) made Zeird's microphone work again. Shut my screen off one time and from there on kept happening. As of now, it is still unclear whether this is a hardware related issue and whether a majority of Pixel 2 XL owners have been facing the issue.
