Google's Big-Screened Pixel 2 XL May Have Big Screen Problems

Google Pixel 2 XL vs Apple iPhone 8 Plus: Which is best?

As reported on Twitter by Android Central's Alex Dobie - showing off the screen of his Pixel 2 XL - the OLED screens in Google's latest smartphones may be suffering from burn-in. The Pixel 2 XL has wild color shifting issues, turning whites and grays completely blue when viewed even slightly off-axis. It's the problem screen savers were originally designed to help solve - if you displayed a rotating or spinning image (or a set of still images rotated through over time), you could mitigate the non-uniform pixel degradation that creates burn-in in the first place. So you can choose from 64GB or 256GB on the iPhone, and 64GB or 128GB with the Pixel 2 XL.

The new Google Pixel 2 smartphone enters a crowded smartphone market in the US dominated by Apple and Samsung.

Viewing a grey imaage on the screen and you can notice exactly where the navigation bar has settled in on the display.

To prevent burn-in from the screen's virtual home button, Samsung's programmed it to move by a few pixels every few seconds.

In a statement issued to the media, a Google spokesman said: '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 lovely colours and renderings.

Google is now actively investigating these cases, so we should get a definite answer soon. Google did not immediately comment on the issues.
