Google Promises Fix For Pixel 2 XL Phones That Have Unresponsive Screens

13 November 2017, 12:55 | Justin Tyler

Some Pixel 2 XL touchscreens are unresponsive near the edges, but a fix is coming

Google Assistant on Pixel 2 is not detecting voice input through Bluetooth headphones

According to Android Police, the Pixel 2 XL's unresponsive edges are due to the device's accidental touch protection feature, which prevents the device from registering accidental touches and taps.

In addition to the smaller Pixel 2, the giant Pixel 2 XL also appears to have the same issue.

It might feel like Google is following Apple's script right now: remove the headphone jack from your flagship phone, ship the phone with a depressingly bad dongle adapter, and announce a new pair of revolutionary Bluetooth headphones to divert the you-caused frustrations of your customers into additional retail transactions.


The Google Pixel 2 is the highest scoring smartphone on DXoMark, the handset managed to score 98 and it great for both videos and photos. He revealed that Google is now working on a fix to solve the problem.

Earlier, this week, Google had issued updates to some of the bugs. In the meantime, the latest bug would help Google engineers find the barriers restricting the Assistant over Bluetooth connectivity.

The Pixel 2 XL has just added another issue to what seems like an endless parade of problems with regards to its screen. The touchscreen over the display somehow fails to register taps, but will register swipes. A pixel 2 XL community manager by name Orrin has posted on the thread to inform people that the Pixel team is already investigating the problem and will come up with a fix via an upcoming over-the-air (OTA) software update.
