The Pixel 2 XL’s screen has dead spots along its sides, fix coming!

Just when Google thought it had addressed all the problems being experienced by Pixel 2 XL (and some Pixel 2) early adopters, more issues continue to be spotted. This next one involves the screen yet again on Pixel 2 XL, which has been to blame for the majority of issues with Google’s 2017 flagship.

First there were color complaints, then buyers discovered screen burn-in in some instances, and audio issues, and now we have a case with dead spots along the sides of Pixel 2 XL. According to complaints in the Pixel User Community and on YouTube, many owners of Pixel 2 XL are experiencing dead spots, which render the edges of the screen completely unresponsive.

A similar issue had been experienced by Galaxy owners back when Samsung first introduced dual edge panels on its devices. Though, Google, can’t exactly make the same excuse, because there aren’t any curved edges on Pixel 2 XL.

There are now multiple threads regarding the issue, and a few days ago, Google began the investigate the user complaints. Google recently stated that the issue will be addressed in a future OTA update, making this the second in just a few weeks Google will have to release because of casualties on Pixel 2 XL.

Law firm, Girard Gibbs LLP, is uniting unhappy Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL customers who have experienced one or more problems with their device in hope to file a class action lawsuit against Google, LG and HTC. This won’t make things any better. Let’s hope we get that fix soon. We’ll keep you posted here if we do.

See the problem demonstrated in the embedded video below, and let us know if you have it down in the comments.
