Pixel 2 XL Can't Get Their Display Right

Adjust Comment Print

As the issues begin to mount, one has to wonder, are the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL even worth bothering with anymore?

After fixing the issue that will cause the display to be unresponsive, some users reported that they notice a new issue with the Google Pixel 2 XL display now.

Some Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL owners say that photos and videos captured in LED lighting using the phone's rear camera end up displaying major banding. This happened with both video and photo.

Seems that Google's Pixel 2 phones can't catch a break, with the latest problem with the smartphone being the cameras behaving rather oddly when presented with LED lights.

The Greatest Showman is also the film for those of us who wish Hugh Jackman had been in Moulin Rouge (or every movie ever). Barnum, and this original musical explores Barnum's founding of the legendary Ringling Bros. and Barnum & Bailey Circus.

According to Google Forums, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 customers have experienced unusual image banding in their photos and videos, taken via front and rear cameras with LED flash. Also you'll notice the poor audio on the video.

Until Google comes up with a fix, users will have to live with this issue.

There's a dedicated discussion thread regarding this over at the official Pixel forum, and a quick look there reveals the problem has been escalated to the concerned team, presumably the Pixel 2 team at Google.
