Google Pixel 2 XL users facing screen flashing issue

Google Pixel 2 smartphones facing yet another problem with OLED display Google Pixel 2 now facing mic failure, Pixel 2 XL suffers screen flashing

After a series of OLED-related issues such as tiresome colours and screen burn-in, users are now reportedly facing a couple of new problems.

In what seemed partially meant to be consolation for removing the headphone jack from the Google Pixel 2, the Mountain View company announced the Google Pixel Buds, a pair of semi-wireless headphones (they're still wired to each other, but now your phone). Even when I completely shut my device off and was going to turn it back on. The smaller, HTC developed Pixel 2 handset has experienced problems of its own, but to a much lesser degree. Unfortunately for Google, the issue seems to have plagued quite a few users and seems like a hardware issue rather than a software problem. Interestingly, some Nexus 6P owners have started to experience the same problem after an Oreo update. 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.

"In my case the issue occurs always and not only when the screen is locked and I squeeze to launch the Assistant". After weeks of discussion, recent user comments suggest there is a temporary fix for the issue - blowing into the bottom speaker. One of the users wrote,"I have the new Pixel 2 (not XL) and the mic stopped working for me". Blowing into the speaker like you would an old NES cartridge.

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. Apparently, there is a fix that might bring the microphone back to work.

After facing several problems one after the other, Google's latest devices, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL may be in trouble again for an issue that is related to the OLED display of the smartphone.
