Google Pixel 2 smartphones facing yet another problem with OLED display

Google Pixel 2 smartphones facing yet another problem with OLED display

Some users have reported that pressing the power button turns the display on/off or flash a light.

Meanwhile, Google Pixel 2 XL owners are facing a completely new issue - screen "flashing". Still, if that's no issue for you and you don't mind the Pixel 2's bezels or the Pixel 2 XL's problems, head on over to Verizon to grab either one by using the Source links below. This is not in fact a new problem. I was able to replicate the issue by blowing into the bottom speaker. Yes.

The problem is happening with different headphone brands and with Bluetooth in vehicles, users said. "I believe this is a hardware issue unfortunately - or at least in my case". Blowing into the speaker like you would an old NES cartridge. "I did reboot in Safe Mode and happened but once I rebooted normally it has not happened again", wrote the user.

"Mine stopped working again".

The issue with the screens of Google's LG, and HTC smartphones are so persistent that Girard Gibbs is investigating claims against the three manufacturers that made the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. Until then, blowing into the speaker is probably your best bet.

The Pixel 2 may be Google's latest flagship device but this does not mean they are manufactured by the founder of the Android system. Another one posted a video which confirmed that the process actually works.

According to a discussion on one of Google's Product Forums the Pixel 2 microphone does not work in some critical scenarios which include while the user is on a call or when the Google Assistant is functioning. In the attached video (it's too bright for me to see this in real life), I noticed there's a little sensor that comes on when the screen flashes. However, it has happened enough times for anxious users to seek out help from Google. Unlocking the bootloader on the new Pixel 2 is pretty easy and if you know what you're doing, it'll take only a few minutes.

Bluetooth issues plagued the last Pixel devices - and its a system that causes trouble on many other electronics products too - but it doesn't seem like something that's going to be too hard to address. It is important for us to highlight the fact that Google's Pixel 2 victory over Apple's iPhone X came with their single 12 MP Shooter itself who was quite underrated and underestimated ever since we got drenched in the portrait season.
