As expected, it has got an overwhelming response and the users are able to keep up the pace while performing any task on this device. However, several users all over the world have reported about the careen burn-in problem in this device. Although it has a large 6-inch screen, this issue is becoming quite common and has been reported by a lot of users.
What exactly is screen burn-in?
The Pixel 2 XL devices have been equipped with the OLED screen by the Google. The OLED screens are facing an issue in the present scenario and i.e. a part of display keeps showing the ghosted image even when the same is made to display other content. In other words, the screen doesn’t immediately erase the previously opened content and the same is reflected in a part of it. There are other images and application that appears ghosted as well at the same time. This probably one of the very annoying experience and being a high-end device, the Google Pixel 2 devices weren’t expected the same.
As per experts, this issue becomes common on a device after it is used for years and cannot be expected from a new device. Having the same in Pixel 2XL is a very sad news. Many users reported this problem just after very few days they first operated Google Pixel 2. The fact is, burn-in problems in Pixel 2 XL are still under the investigation of several experts and the exact reason for this is not yet known.
