Now the Pixel 2 XL has an unresponsive screen issue

Apple has its own touchscreen issues with iPhone X devices becoming briefly unresponsive in the cold.

Because the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have minimal bezels, Google designed it with the idea that it would protect the phone from accidental swipes.

Pixel 2 XL users say their handsets are failing to register taps alongside the edges of the touchscreen, possibly due to an overly aggressive accidental touch protection system.

Users on the Pixel User Community have posted about a new issue to be aware of. A number of reports of differential aging on the Pixel 2 XL's OLED screen will also be taken care of, in the next software update as promised by Google. According to a statement by a Google rep, this issue seems to have been fixed, at least when it comes to Pixel phones and factory reset/device classification.

There have been a variety of Google Pixel 2 XL display problems that have frustrated owners of the smartphone.

Reports are emerging from the Pixel Community Forum, via Android Police, that the edges of the screen don't always respond to touch properly, and disgruntled users have gone as far as producing a video to demonstrate exactly what they mean (below). As a part of master promotion plan, Indian users will also get free wireless earphones from Sennheiser worth Rs. 11,990 free with each Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL order.

For the Pixel 2 XL users who do not use edge gestures, this issue may not have impacted their day to day usage as much. No one has come up with a solution yet, with the original poster stating that Google's standard screen troubleshooting advice doesn't work. Cautious customers might want to go for the smaller HTC-made Pixel 2 instead.
