Google Pixel 2 Finally Putting Screen Issue To Rest

Although the phone was graced with such high numbers, iPhone X impressive showboating by Apple came a point short to Google's Pixel 2, who was only 2 point short of a complete 100. Turning off the ambient sensor is the temporary fix for the flashing screen issue on Pixel 2 XL. Google is yet to acknowledge the issue but we can expect some sort of software patch to fix the issue. Together with its bigger sibling, the Pixel 2 XL, these next-gen Pixel phones have been the subject of numerous discussions and reviews.

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 Pixel 2 has nothing special as it comes with a regular design and has a plasticky feel because Google covered the aluminum body with paint (why on the earth you'll do that?).

Google is having a hard time with the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL flagship devices. In some posts, Pixel 2 XL users claim that the issue was seen when powering on the handset. Multiple other users also confirmed the solution works. At the moment, the issue is now limited to Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL owners are not affected.

Users just need to follow the link provided in the email, which will take them directly to the Google Store, according to 9 to 5 Google.

Talking about the microphone issue first, some Pixel 2 owners have reported unresponsive microphones during calls or while using voice assistant. Now, it appears as though another display problem has surfaced as some users are experiencing screen flashes when locking and unlocking their Pixel 2 XL units.

Some users even have reported a odd screen flashing which happens when you lock or unlock the phone. I was able to replicate the issue by blowing into the bottom speaker. Yes. Now, we don't know exactly why the mics are behaving like this, it is probably due to some hardware issue.

For some Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL users, the microphone malfunction issue can be fixed by blowing up in the speaker which may sound old school but until Google responds, this may be the best bet.
