Pixel 2 XL Screen Flashes When Locking or Unlocking, Some Users Report

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

More trouble has been reported when the Pixel 2 XL's screen was found easy to scratch, no thanks to the damaged oleophobic coating. Turning off the ambient sensor is the temporary fix for the flashing screen issue on Pixel 2 XL. Google earlier this week started rolling out a software update to fix hardware issues plaguing its Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL.

Google cemented their presence in the smartphone market when they released the Google Pixel a few years ago. The problem also doesn't appear to be affecting the smaller Pixel 2, which also comes with an OLED display.

It's just been a month and users around the world are reporting a number of serious issues they are facing with the Google Pixel 2 and 2 XL. The miniature home assistants, each of which retails for about $50 at their regular price, are expected to ship out around four weeks after the delivery date of the new Pixel handsets, according to Android Authority.

Now, a new issue is being reported by the owners of Google Pixel 2 XL. Now, we don't know exactly why the mics are behaving like this, it is probably due to some hardware issue. One of the major problems is that the Pixel 2 has a potential bendgate situation as Google has fitted an antenna band at the weakest part of the phone. However, a user shared in a recent post that the problem may be resolved by blowing into the bottom speaker. Luckily for users affected by the long list of Pixel 2 or 2 XL issues, Google has extended its warranty on both devices for free, but it does beg the question as to just how much this warranty will be called into effect in the length of one contract. Blowing into the speaker like you would an old NES cartridge.

The Pixel User Community forums post, which was first published back in October 21, has now gained some attention with other users reporting to be experiencing the same issue.

Some users even have reported a unusual screen flashing which happens when you lock or unlock the phone.
