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

Issues have also been reported with the Pixel 2 XL, especially on Google product forums.

More problems on the Google Pixel 2 XL display have surfaced, involving fingerprint smudges and flashing screens. Some have found that disabling this feature prevents the issue, others say that even just toggling it off and then on is a temporary solution. While it is uncertain at the moment what exactly is causing the problem, it would be wise to contact Google if you are experiencing this issue with your handset. The screen flashing issue appears to be only affecting a very small number of Pixel 2 XL users and shouldn't be considered as a widespread issue, according to Android Police.

Ever since Google started selling the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL in the market, things have gone bad to worst. As such, the fact that mics on the Pixel 2, Galaxy S8, and Note 8 mysteriously aren't working has got a lot of customers quite irritated - and rightly so.

The issue was first brought to light by a Pixel 2 XL user Cynthia O in the Pixel User Community forums. Google has always passed production tasks to an OEM and for the Pixel 2, the production duty is passed to LG. Again Google and addressed the issue stating that the OLED panel on the Pixel 2 XL is aimed at producing natural and accurate colors. Share us your views by commenting below.

Meanwhile, Google Pixel 2 XL owners are facing a completely new issue - screen "flashing". Some owners of the latter model are noticing that during phone calls, the microphone cuts out.

It doesn't happen on the Pixel 2 but only on the bigger variant.

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

Some users even have reported a unusual screen flashing which happens when you lock or unlock the phone. Multiple users have said the solution works.

The cause for this is unknown, but on some devices, users are reporting that the microphone just stops working, seemingly due to some hardware issue.
