Google delaying some Pixel 2 shipments until late November

24 October 2017

The Pixel 2 XL is still making headlines, but not for the reasons Google was hoping for. No, not the weird color balance issue from last week, there's another potential problem. What's worrying is that this is very, very early for a brand new device to start displaying burn-in, given how short a period the Pixel 2 XL has been available.

Google's Pixel 2 XL is one of a pair of smartphones that the tech giant introduced this month.

If you look at the bottom of the image, you can clearly see a navigation bar retained at the bottom. If you may remember, the premium flagship Galaxy S8 was updated a bit to avoid screen burn-in.

Google Pixel 2 XL has a lot of problem with respect to the POLED QHD+ display, like Bluish tint and overall Burn-in issues.

"The Pixel 2 XL screen has been designed with an advanced POLED technology, including QHD+ resolution, wide colour gamut, and high contrast ratio for natural and attractive colors and renderings", Android Central quoted a Google spokesperson as saying. Let us see if any other users report the same in the near future. New complaints are surfacing about the Pixel 2 XL display and these may be even worse than poor color reproduction: screen burn-in.

Note that the iPhone 8 Plus is the only one of these with wireless charging, though: the Pixel 2 XL doesn't offer that. The buyers of smaller Pixel 2 with AMOLED display have not complained of any such issue. The screen uses a technology called POLED, which stands for "plastic organic light emitting diodes", and some users have been complaining about its boring color reproduction and alleged blue tint. As is pretty standard, Google's statement touts the technology in its POLED display and says that there is an extensive quality testing procedure that happens before a phone is launched. Redmond had promised that the console would eventually play the classics, looks like they're coming through.

Moreover, LG's own phones with OLED screens have suffered from burn-in for years. Indeed, LG has used it before, in its G Flex 2 phones. At the moment, the issue is limited to the Pixel 2 XL and not the Pixel 2.
