Pixel 2 XL POLED display has massive Burn-In issue

Pixel 2 XL POLED display has massive Burn-In issue

If you want to try these out, we've done the hard work for you and extracted them from a Pixel 2 XL.

Slated to launch on 27 October in India, Google is going to have a tough time on its hands getting the larger Pixel 2 XL into the hands of consumers.

On a similar note, the menu for selecting sounds has been revamped on the Pixel 2.

If history has taught us anything, its that a Google phone launch never goes quite as smooth as one might hope. At least Apple's 3D Touch functionality on the screen brings pressure sensitivity throughout the OS and to all compatible apps, but it hasn't really been a revolutionary addition to the iOS experience.

Google's new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL offer a lot of features but as with any new smartphone, it's not without its issues.

Google, meanwhile, has said that it was investing into the matter. The smaller phone made by HTC is doing perfectly.

The film got an opening of Rs 4 crore 80 lakhs.The Net India collection of the movie has now become Rs 14 crore 10 lakhs. According to analysis, SRK's Happy New Year is the highest Diwali opener with a day one collection of Rs 44.97 crore.

Then, last week, device fix website iFixit published a teardown of the Pixel 2 XL that showed what the Pixel Visual Core chip actually looks like.

The publication has shared a handy guide on how to spot screen burn, advising individuals to open up a bright red or black background and check the portions where the navigation buttons and notifications areas reside for any ghost image left behind.

It could be a genuine screen burn-in problem, say reports, and can become a deal-breaker for potential buyers. The Nexus 6 screen was reported to be too yellow, as was the Nexus 5X's.

In a statement to The Verge, a Google spokesperson said: "The Pixel 2 XL screen has been designed with an advanced POLED technology, including QHD+ resolution, wide color gamut, and high contrast ratio for natural and handsome colors and renderings".

We reached out to Google for further comment on the 2 XL display issues. Have you been told to wait for your Pixel 2 device? The Independent has been able to replicate the problem on another Pixel 2 XL review handset, which has also been in use for approximately one week. Just like Samsung or Apple, Google too, has lovely cases made from genuine leather.
