Pixel 2 XL proximity sensor issues got a fix, but Google won't release it yet

Alongside the Android 8.0 update, the Pixel 2 and 2 XL got some unexpected "features" - a ton of proximity-sensor related bugs, including phone blockage during calls and the Ambient Display being always on.

Not going to buy any Pixel phones because: (1) the quality is not on par with other top phone manufacturers. (2) the pricing could be even higher than other than Samsung/Huawei's SIMILAR offerings.

I'm afraid to buy a Pixel phone after the Pixel 2. Kinda like how I was afraid of the Note 8 after the Note 7

I have a Pixel 2 XL> Proximity issues from update to Android 8.1 Did the following: Restored to factory settings: no fix Removed screen protector: no fix Today I signed up to the Beta for Android P. Installed and now the sensor is working.... Something has changed in the new Beta release.... My phone comes back when I take away from my ear, something it hasn't done in 2 months.
