7 reasons why the Pixel 2 is better than the iPhone X

The issues with the Pixel 2 XL's display have been numerous and well documented.

Google announced the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL back on October 4. With issues related to displaying screen floating over the internet, users have complained about the tiresome colors and screen burn-in on the Pixel 2 XL's OLED display. Now, multiple users have experienced trouble in operating the Google Assistant via Bluetooth headphones in Pixel 2 devices, however, Pixel 2 XL customers have reported unresponsive touch near the edges of the display. However, when tapping near the edges, the smartphone sometimes does not pick up the command. Orrin, the community manager for the Pixel forums, said that Google is already investigating the problem and will fix it through an over-the-air update. No one has come up with a solution yet, with the original poster stating that Google's standard screen troubleshooting advice doesn't work.

Apparently, this issue is a side effect of the accuracy of Google's software when it comes to repudiating accidental touches.

As we can see from the videos, the combined OIS and EIS does a pretty impressive job of stabilizing the video shot with Google's Pixel smartphones.

The unresponsive touchscreen edges issue is different from previous Pixel 2 XL display problems though. Nevertheless, it is comforting to know that Google will fix the problem in the future.

Reports are emerging from the Pixel Community Forum, via Android Police, that the edges of the screen don't always respond to touch properly, and disgruntled users have gone as far as producing a video to demonstrate exactly what they mean (below). Cautious customers might want to go for the smaller HTC-made Pixel 2 instead.
