  • Some Pixel 2 XL touchscreens are unresponsive near the edges, but a fix is coming

Apple has its own touchscreen issues with iPhone X devices becoming briefly unresponsive in the cold.

Apart from the Assistant issue, some Pixel 2 XL users have reported that they are facing trouble while using the edges of the large-screen handset. The issues with the Pixel 2 XL's display have been numerous and well documented.

"The touchscreen works while sliding my finger along the edge works, but when touching it directly, it doesn't detect that touch along the edge", wrote Deathsoldier11 on the Pixel User Community forum. However, when tapping near the edges, the smartphone sometimes does not pick up the command.


He also thinks that the fault lies with Google's accidental touch protection software.

The Google Pixel smartphones have been acknowledged by various critics for their attractive OLED displays and highest rated smartphone cameras. The problem is confirmed to be related to the Pixel 2 XL software and not its hardware, which should make it much easier to fix compared to requesting a device replacement. Earlier, Google has addressed the audio recording issue where high-pitch sounds can be heard in the sound files. These include cases of burn-ins, green lines, and flashing screens.

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). Considering the facts that came out from the information that surfaced online, the OLED panel in the HTC made Pixel 2 is supplied by Samsung whereas the OLED panel in the LG-made Pixel 2 XL comes from LG.
