Google Pixel 2 XL screen burn-in, Google Pixel 2 XL Problem, Google Pixel 2 XL Screen Problem – The display of the Pixel 2 XL has been criticized by many over the last few weeks due to color and texture issues. Beyond disappointment with the lackluster display, now there’s anxiety over a different, much worse problem. Some who have been testing review units have noticed signs of screen burn-in and Google is now actively investigating these reports.
Alex Dobie of Android Central was the first to report seeing evidence of screen burn-in, and since his initial post on Twitter, others have confirmed seeing the same. You can see the apparent burn-in when the screen is set to display a solid grey background, as the navigation buttons on the bottom are still faintly visible. If you have a Pixel 2 XL already, you can check your unit by following the directions here. It seems that the smaller Pixel 2 is not affected.

Google is already investigating these reports of possible screen burn-in on Pixel 2 XL units, saying in a statement that it puts all of its products through “extensive quality testing before launch and in the manufacturing of every unit. We are actively investigating this report”. We’ll update you when more information is released. In the meantime, it’s important to keep in mind that we might not be seeing a worst-case scenario here. As suggested by Dieter Bohn at The Verge, this could be non-permanent image retention or ‘ghosting’. And it might not happen with every unit.
We’ll have to wait and see if this really turns out to be burn-in. But, if that is indeed the case, it could certainly be a deal breaker for many who are looking to buy a Pixel 2 XL until Google works out a solution. Be sure to check out our round up of the best alternatives to the new Pixel phones if you’re considering making a purchase soon.
What do you think of this issue? Are you seeing signs of burn-in already?
