Some Google Pixel 2 XL owners are complaining about flashing screens (VIDEO)

26


The last thing that Google and LG need right now is another problem with the screen on the Google Pixel 2 XL. Owners of both the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL handset are already being recruited to join a class action suit against Google, HTC and LG because of issues with the display on both phones. The latest problem revolves around Pixel 2 XL models with screens that flash when they are unlocked.

Previous issues with the Pixel 2 XL screen include the display's propensity to suffer from burn-in. This is when an older image is still somewhat visible on the screen, even after the display is showing something else.

A video taken by a Pixel 2 XL user who is experiencing this problem, shows how the screen flashes brightly before going on. While this flash doesn't occur every time, the issue started after the phone was purchased. Restarting the phone helped to stop the flashing, but the problem returned the very next morning. And even more advanced solutions like putting the phone into Safe Mode, or doing a factory reset, failed to work. Turning off the ambient display seems to work, at least for now. As soon as we hear something from Mountain View, we will pass it along to you.
