Google Faces Pixel 2 XL Screen Burn-In Dilemma

Google's latest Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL offers some of the greatest features like the top of the line specifications, stock Android user experience and a premium camera, which scores a ideal 99 out of 100 in DXO rating. However, the iPhone's smaller, lower-resolution screen surely saves some energy consumption, so whatever difference there might be isn't hugely significant.

Screen-burn has always been an issue in the display world, affecting TVs and monitors as well as the odd smartphone display.

As for storage, these phones follow the same path's: Apple's traditional one.

It seems like this might not be the last of the shipment disruptions we will hear of regarding the Pixel 2, as Google is seemingly making the same mistakes it made with its original Pixel smartphone.

The all new $1,542 Google Pixel 2 XL has a major OLED screen burn problem which appear after a few days of use. The OnePlus 5, meanwhile, was said to have a wobbly screen when scrolling fast.

There is a chance that Google will recall the Pixel 2 XL or that they will begin a replacement plan for users who experience this, but there is nothing confirmed yet. If you may remember, the premium flagship Galaxy S8 was updated a bit to avoid screen burn-in.

"The Pixel 2 XL screen has been designed with an advanced POLED technology, including QHD+ resolution, wide colour gamut, and high contrast ratio for natural and attractive colors and renderings", Android Central quoted a Google spokesperson as saying late unday.

I'm seeing limited ghosting of the bottom navigation bar where the image is retained after switching from previous screens, but it appears to go away after several seconds unlike burn-in which is generally more permanent.

Google has admitted that they are actively investigating problems with the Pixel 2 XL display. The Verge and 9to5 Google have reported similar issues as well.

However, screen burn-in is usually something that manifests after years of use.

Google also sent emails over the weekend to buyers advising that delivery of their Pixel 2 may be delayed as much as one month, to late November, according to the AndroidPolice news blog and users' postings on Reddit forums.
