There is no doubt that the Google Pixel 2 XL is not getting off to a good start. The one that came to be the best device of the high end Android, is having a series of serious problems difficult to tolerate considering the almost 1,000 euros that counts. A few days ago we told you that the resistance of this model did not seem to be very good, and days before it was revealed that the screens of the Pixel 2 XL were causing users to complaint.
Beyond the fact that it is cold, has irregular lighting, and strange blue tints, the first cases of burn-in are occurring, in users who have only been using the phone for a week. What’s going on here, Google?
Alex Dobie, one of the great editors of Central Android, has suffered the famous burn-in effect on the screen of his Google Pixel 2 XL, with just one week of use. It is true that the AMOLED, OLED and P-OLED screens are usually prone to this type of failure, but it is not at all normal that in a few days we already have that effect.
But what is that about burn in? This is a problem that occurs when a part of the screen shows “a ghost image” of an element that had previously. For example, the navigation bar (the three buttons on the screen), or the status bar (the bar where you have the WiFi icon, coverage, etc.), are usually always on the screen.
If you are seeing, for example, a full screen photo, and you can see that in the background you still see these elements as being “marked” on the screen, you have burn in effect. This problem usually occurs with months or years of use, but not at all in the first few days of using a device. It seems that LG has not been too good this year’s P-OLED panels, and Google can be a bit disgusted to have relied on such panels.
As always, we’ll have to wait to see if there are more cases, or it’s just been bad luck for the publisher. Not obstate, it is obvious that something happens with the screen of the Google Pixel 2 XL, and we hope that the matter will not go further, since it is one of our preferred mobile and we would not like to see him in trouble so often.
