Google Shows How Its Google Pixel 2 Smartphones Produce Great Videos

Some Pixel 2 XL touchscreens are unresponsive near the edges, but a fix is coming

About a week ago, a post in the Pixel User Community forum kicked off a discussion about the apparent lack of responsiveness along the curved edges of the Pixel 2 XL screen. Another user put together a video demonstrating issue, highlighting that swipes towards the edge usually work, but taps are hit or miss. Fortunately, there is a difference with the cases of an unresponsive touchscreen that would be good news for owners of the much-maligned device. Like Google, Apple will fix its problem through a future software update. There was also some unresponsiveness on the left-hand side in the video.

The lack of response from tapping the screen edges is just one of the many issues that appeared upon the release of Google Pixel 2 XL.

According to Android Police, the issue seems to be the cause of an over-aggressive accidental touch protection system. Other offers include a cashback of Rs. 8000 if they use an EMI on HDFC Card to buy the Pixel 2 or the Pixel 2 XL phone.

Google seems to be aware of the issue and a Community Manager on the forum has replied to the original post saying, "The team has been investigating, and this will be addressed in a future OTA update".

There have been a variety of Google Pixel 2 XL display problems that have frustrated owners of the smartphone. Considering the facts that came out from the information that surfaced online, the OLED panel in the HTC made Pixel 2 is supplied by Samsung whereas the OLED panel in the LG-made Pixel 2 XL comes from LG.

The Google Pixel 2 XL is among the top-end smartphones launched this year, although being a premium device does not guarantee that problems would never occur.
