Pixel 2 XL Screen Flashes When Locking or Unlocking, Some Users Report

Pixel 2 XL Screen Flashes When Locking or Unlocking, Some Users Report

The new phones, especially the Pixel 2 XL, looked to build upon the success of the original Pixel, but instead they have been repeatedly crashing and burning due to unforeseen issues. 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.

The Google Pixel 2 XL users also reported that their units are having burn-in issues with the new P-OLED display and other devices are making clicking and high pitch frequency sounds. Together with its bigger sibling, the Pixel 2 XL, these next-gen Pixel phones have been the subject of numerous discussions and reviews.

Owners of both Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL smartphones are encouraged to take legal action against Google, HTC and LG because of the issues with the display of both the smartphones. It will be interesting to see how Google is going to respond to the new issue.

The Pixel User Community forums post, which was first published back in October 21, has now gained some attention with other users reporting to be experiencing the same issue. The affected users claim that they began experiencing random screen flashes since updating to Android 8.0 Oreo. This is an issue beyond just phone calls, though, as things such as voice recognition use the same microphones.

Apparently, blowing into your bottom speaker as you would an old NES cartridge (or really any video game cartridge) made Zeird's microphone work again. "I believe this is a hardware issue unfortunately - or at least in my case".

Now the screen goes out, if a smartphone for a long time not to use it. Google also calibrated color modes display Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL, bringing the color a little more natural. Once the mic was working, he was able to deactivate it by blowing into the speaker. Shut my screen off one time and from there on kept happening. Curiously, he also notes that blowing into the speaker while the microphone is working properly causes it to stop working once more.
