Pixel 2 XL Can't Get Their Display Right

ALTHOUGH THEY are yet to reach these hallowed shores, Google's Pixel Buds have been put on sale in America with a series of pop-up stores, including one in NY which offered up some somewhat peculiar advice. Now users are reporting an issue with the display being unresponsive on the handset.

According to Google Forums, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 customers have experienced unusual image banding in their photos and videos, taken via front and rear cameras with LED flash. On video, this banding effect looks nearly like a strobe, and is apparent when the camera is pointed at an LED light source, such as an LED light bulb or LED display. The effect can happen both on video and when taking images, but doesn't always appear.

The cameras, along with the software driving them, in every Pixel 2 unit are nothing short of brilliant, as DxOMark would readily agree.

Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 customers have experienced unusual image banding in their photos and videos both taken via front and rear cameras under LED lighting.

There's a dedicated discussion thread regarding this over at the official Pixel forum, and a quick look there reveals the problem has been escalated to the concerned team, presumably the Pixel 2 team at Google.

Some other issues have been reported, some of them due to quality control problems such as devices shipping without an operating system installed. Google has also addressed complaints about tiresome screen colors via a software update.
