Google looking into reports of Pixel 2 screen problem

According to The Verge, Google has finally acknowledged that the Pixel 2 XL is suffering from display burn-in problems. It's the problem screen savers were originally designed to help solve - if you displayed a rotating or spinning image (or a set of still images rotated through over time), you could mitigate the non-uniform pixel degradation that creates burn-in in the first place.

In fairness, Google isn't directly manufacturing the Pixel 2, instead handing off the responsibility to HTC.

Burn-in is when certain visual elements, often parts of the UI like the navigation bar, become permanently discolored so that even when you're looking at something else, you can still see the remnants of previous visuals-or what is known as a ghost image.

If Google is accepting a screen burn-in issue on the Pixel 2 XL, it confirms a widespread problem.

If you're a Pixel 2 owner and feeling left out of all the fun, don't worry - Google hasn't forgotten about you!

Reviews of the Pixel 2 XL have been largely positive, but there's apparently an issue of a screen burn-in on the device.

Now a new issue has hit Google Pixel 2 XL - burn-ins. To have a screen burn-in within just two weeks of usage, is a serious issue and possibly a dealbreaker for many prospective buyers of the Pixel 2 XL.

Year after year we hope Google gets its logistics act together (and discovers that the world consists of more than 6-7 countries), but maybe 2017 isn't the lucky one either.

This incorporates software navigation buttons that stay in place when users move from screen to screen.

"The Pixel 2 XL screen has been designed with an advanced POLED technology, including QHD+ resolution, wide color gamut, and high contrast ratio for natural and attractive colors and renderings". Google did not immediately comment on the issues. We're expecting similar complaints will be shared but we're hoping Google releases a quick, if not permanent fix soon. As is pretty standard, Google's statement touts the technology in its POLED display and says that there is an extensive quality testing procedure that happens before a phone is launched.
