Google Pixel 2 XL Faces Problem with Slow Charging on a Fast Charging Device

Pixel 2

Either Google has cheapened out by relying on a slightly older OLED panel to save a dime with the Pixel 2 or LG has refused to sell their best OLED panels.

Google solved the problem with burnable displays branded smartphones Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. However, the November security patch for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL is a bit different due to a number of issues that Google aimed to fix right away.

Google just can't catch a break with the Pixel 2 XL's screen, or, more accurately, with its awful quality control on this phone.

The issue seems to occur in a variety of different scenarios and causes the screen to produce a sudden flash. A video taken by a Pixel 2 XL user who is experiencing this problem, shows how the screen flashes brightly before going on. The Pixel 2 will also receive the same options. But then again, the heavy trust placed on LG has resulted in some major controversies happening with the Pixel 2 and it is with the burn-in screen. With the latest software update, users can choose the saturated mode to put the Pixel 2 XL display back to the same setting as the first Pixel device.

Set to replace the "vivid colors" display previously available, Google has rolled out with three new "color profile" options; "boosted", "natural" and "saturated".

One of the users reported a temporary solution to the issue, "I believe this is a hardware issue unfortunately - or at least in my case".

However, in a recent post, a user shared that they were able to resolve the problem by blowing into the bottom speaker.
