More trouble: Pixel 2 XL's screen easy to scratch, oleophobic coating damaged

Google Pixel 2 XL

However, the November security patch for the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL is a bit different due to a number of issues that Google aimed to fix right away.

Set to replace the "vivid colors" display previously available, Google has rolled out with three new "color profile" options; "boosted", "natural" and "saturated".

After calling Google Assistant, you can ask "what song is this?" or "what song is playing?", and the Assistant will pull up a card for you with the name of the song, the artist and lyrics, The Verge reported on Tuesday.

Google has rolled out a new software update, meant to fix the display and colour burn issues found in its newly unveiled Pixel 2 XL smartphone, whilst also remedying the "click noise" in the smaller Pixel 2.


Google just can't catch a break with the Pixel 2 XL's screen, or, more accurately, with its bad quality control on this phone.

In short, the problem here is that the display on the Pixel 2 XL will flash when it is locked/unlocked or when it turns on the Always-On Display feature. The new color display options will be shown, including the saturated mode. While the smaller version of Google Pixel 2 XL, i.e. the Google Pixel 2 isn't facing any similar problems, the former has quite a few complaints of a longer charging period than is stated by Google. There were reports that faint, crackling sounds can be heard in sound clippings recorded by the Pixel 2 XL, and the November patch aimed to improve the device's audio quality.

As we mentioned in our deeper dive, this update also brings planned UI changes which extend the life of the OLED display, including a fade out of the navigation buttons at the bottom of the screen and an update to maximum brightness.
