Law firm recruits Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL owners for Class Action suit against Google, HTC and LG
With reports that the screen on the Pixel 2 XL suffers from screen burn-in, black smear and other problems, Google could face a Class Action lawsuit filed by those Pixel 2 XL buyers who are having issues with their displays. The phone, manufactured by LG, employs LG Display's 6-inch pOLED screen. The "p" before the OLED acronym stands for plastic, and the display employs a QHD+ resolution.

Once certified by a judge, a Class Action suit consolidates individual law suits filed throughout the country for the same issues. A law firm by the name of Girard Gibbs LLP is already looking to recruit Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL owners to join the prospective class. While the screen issues are affecting Pixel 2 XL users, the Pixel 2 has had problems with clicking and whistling sounds. The noises seem to be heard when trying to make a phone call on the device.

Google, HTC and LG better be lining up some big name barristers in addition to their in-house teams. Girard Gibbs LLP has been involved in previous Class Action law suits against smartphone manufacturers including the one filed against LG for bootstrap issues with the LG G4 and the LG V10. Other LG made handsets, including the Nexus 5X and LG V20, were also part of the suit. And the firm also sued Motorola for $5 million over poor customer service related to warranty claims that Motorola allegedly failed to handle properly. HTC produced the Pixel 2 while LG manufactured the LG 2 XL.

For its part, Google has doubled the length of the warranty on both the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL from one-year to two-years.
