Some Google Pixel 2 XL owners are complaining about flashing screens

Some Google Pixel 2 XL owners are complaining about flashing screens

As reported by Android Central, the recently-released software patch for the Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL includes a new set of color display options, namely boosted, natural, and saturated.

But now you don't even need to download those apps as the "What's this song" feature of Google Assistant is rolling out to devices that are not Pixel 2 or 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.

This particular problem has caused discoloration and even a blue tint on the Pixel 2's display and consumers are not happy for it. For Pixel 2 XL users to be seeing it happen just weeks after the phone launched is an anomaly.

Paul Getty instead of Spacey, people close to the production told the Associated Press on Wednesday. His former co-stars, Michelle Williams and Mark Wahlberg , are reportedly in favor of the reshoots.

Quality control issues related to the Pixel 2 XL have been raised in light of user reports claiming everything from receiving units that have cosmetic damage to, in one instance, receiving a phone with a paper in the box specifically noting that it failed quality control.

There are some users who have claimed that changing the settings especially turning the Ambient Display off and on again does fix the issue. The Pixel 2 will also receive the same options.

If the Pixel User Community forums are any indication, it would seem that this is not an isolated incident, as many are chiming in with the same problem. This does not appear to be a widespread issue (at least not yet), but at this point, Google really can't afford any more bad PR. This has also been reported when giving voice commands on the affected devices.
