Pixel 2 XL touchscreen has dead spots around the edges

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

The lack of response from tapping the screen edges is just one of the many issues that appeared upon the release of Google Pixel 2 XL.

Fortunately there's good news this time.

A new wave of complaints revealed that some Google Pixel 2 XL owners were having difficulty with the smartphone's display, which at this point could no longer be considered a surprise. Another user put together a video demonstrating issue, highlighting that swipes towards the edge usually work, but taps are hit or miss.

For what it's worth, I've never noticed any responsiveness issues on the edges of my Pixel 2 XL screen in my day-to-day use.

Zverev will move on to a meeting with Roger Federer on Tuesday, a player he beat to win the Montreal Masters earlier in the year. But Federer saw the amusing side later: "It was a big distraction, I'll tell you that, because [Sock's posterior] was very big".

The unresponsive touchscreen edges issue is different from previous Pixel 2 XL display problems though.

The official Google Community Manager assigned on the Pixel 2 community page addressed the issue on unresponsive screen edges. Thankfully, Google has responded to the problem, stating that it will be fixed in a coming update.

As we can see from the videos, the combined OIS and EIS does a pretty impressive job of stabilizing the video shot with Google's Pixel smartphones. These include cases of burn-ins, green lines, and flashing screens.

According to the Google Forums (via Android Police), whenever a user tries to operate the Google Assistant via Bluetooth headphones, the microphone does not detect the user's voice and seems to go mute at the moment. Now, in the latest reports, the company is going to fix an issue that is related to the Pixel 2 XL. Considering the facts that came out from the information that surfaced online, the OLED panel in the HTC made Pixel 2 is supplied by Samsung whereas the OLED panel in the LG-made Pixel 2 XL comes from LG.
