Pixel 2 XL unresponsive edge issue will be fixed with an OTA update


  • Sandro

    Is there any control quality process at all for Google/LG? If the lack of the headset port was already a big disappointment, with all the daily news of problems found, maybe we should stay clear of the Pixel 2 XL at least for some months, until Google puts some serious work on the phone…

      Maybe some ppl paid a good amount for tech review to spill all this crap..

      for pixel 2 xl its a bit early to say ( not officially out in Canada will be mid next week ) so its might not even be the same batch that USA got (wich if this news is based on us based devices )

      for normal pixel 2 i had literally no return at all not a single complain as well.

      Its like the essential was bashed on by load of tech review website for various issues.
      Been testing one for 2 weeks and beside the default camera app that is bad ( using pixel side loaded app instead ) that phone is pretty good ( no freeze as some reviewer said they had ) in fact i find it much better than LG G6 and S8 duo still.. note 8 , lg v30 and pixel 2 are superior to it but for the price you cannot argue..

    Just like the update for the halo effect on original Pixels cameras? Oh I forgot. They never sent an update. Never mentioned it again.

      Yet it was still the best camera available on a phone. Probably because like myself most never noticed it.

      Or whenever you did notice it you just dismissed it because of all the other great results from the camera.

    • John Lofwire

      Never had 1 client complain about pixel 1 camera.
      its not every crap news that paid for tech media bring out that are true..

      There is a halo effect not seen on any of my other phones. Google was quick to say they would fix it with a software update but never did. Other than that, my camera is fine. I didn’t bother buying a Pixel 2.

    This is the problem with any new phone these days. They are in such a rush to built next years phone they don’t get enough time for testing. Generally there’s 8 months of development, 2 months of testing then 2 months for release. We need to go back to new phones happening every other year with a mild jump in the middle kinda like the old Apple days with the 4 and the 4s, 5 and 5s, etc.

      Some are still pretty good.
      Software flaw i can live with ( can be updated and fixed )
      Hardware flaw that another story.

      By example the Essential is an amazing phone hardware it top notch its just the software that need to be fixed ( google pixel camera apk fix it lol )

      What other Essential softwares needs fixing, I do like the hardware.

    Dean Daley seem like a google pixel hater.
    All article always against pixel 2 lol.

      He could also be a Pixel lover, which is why he’s so concerned over this growing list of issues.
