Another Pixel 2 XL problem, this one with touch panel edge response

With Fused Video Stabilization on the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, you no longer have to carefully place the phone before recording, hold it firmly over the entire recording session, or carry a gimbal mount everywhere. Now there's a new bug to add to the list: unresponsive spots near the edge of the screen. Specifically, the Pixel 2 XL fails to detect touch near the edges of the screen, thus the devices do not perform the necessary actions.

The Pixel 2 XL is already known to have several issues with its display, including muted colors and burn-in, but now users are discovering yet another problem with Google's larger smartphone.

As reported by Engadget, Google Pixel 2 XL owners are now complaining about the lack of response when pressing on the display edges. The original poster noticed that while sliding his finger along the screen's edges worked as expected, his taps along the edges were not always registered.

A Pixel User Community thread was started about a week ago. This issue can be solved through a software patch.

The driver-focused, well-appointed cockpit includes standard leather-trimmed seats, with sueded microfiber inserts offered. Both of the ZR1's wings are tied into the chassis, like the Corvette Racing C7.R racecar, for strength and stability.

Pixel Community manager Orrin has followed-up with a comment that Google is looking into the issue, and plans to release a fix in an upcoming over-the-air update. He revealed that Google is now working on a fix to solve the problem.

The Pixel 2 XL is definitely not having a good time on the market, as many issues related to the device's hardware have popped up since its general availability last month.

Earlier, this week, Google had issued updates to some of the bugs.
