Pixel 2 XL screen prone to burn in?

Pixel 2 XL screen prone to burn in?

Multiple end users are reporting significant problems with burn-in, even after just a few days of using the device.

The investigation follows Google's acknowledgement that it may introduce new software to respond to users' concern about a blue tint to the Pixel 2 XL's 6-inch screen.

Recently, a user with a Twitter handle named @alexdobie has complained about his device which has a massive "Burn-In", which has caused the half of the display to turn into grey colour permanently. It can be annoying most of the time but don't be surprised if it does happen to your smartphone.

If Google's investigations do confirm a widespread problem, the implications could extend beyond customers sending back their units for refund or fix.

However, the film saw remarkable growth on Friday and is said to have done a business close to Rs 9.30 crore. Directed by Advaita Chandan, the film has received a boom of about two times in the domestic box office.

"The Pixel 2 XL screen has been designed with an advanced P-OLED technology, including QHD+ resolution, wide colour gamut, and high contrast ratio for natural and lovely colors and renderings". Google issued a statement to The Verge saying it is "actively investigating" users' reports. The device incorporates new OLED display technology, which Google described as offering "a more natural and accurate rendition of colors". Burn-in, in contrast, never vanishes. Burn-in, which usually becomes a problem only after several years of activity, can make it hard to see information on the display. In a followup comment, dpezet stated that they'll be receiving a replacement unit shortly, and they were given a $10 Google Play credit for their trouble. However, reports like the one above, from Android Central executive editor Alex Dobie, seem like classic case of burn in.

Having an OLED display on a smartphone gives it several benefits but at the cost of the persistent display burn-in issues that we have all been hearing about and seeing it too.

We've got Android 8.0 builds of OPD1.170816.010, OPD1.170816.011, OPD1.170816.012, and OPD3.170816.012 for both phones. I have no doubt that the company does test its hardware, but let's be honest - "extensive quality testing", isn't something you can spend days or even hours on while trying to ship millions of phones. In the past, we've seen delays on the Nexus 6P and the original Pixel, and now the brand new Pixel 2 is joining the club. Here's what's happening and why you shouldn't buy this phone yet.
