People anxiously wait for the latest technologies and when they start investigating, many outcomes can be expected. Same happened with the upcoming Google Pixel 2 XL. People were having high hopes with the Pixel 2 XL but all of a sudden these burn-in issues claimed by some testers pushed them into doubts. The makers doesn’t offered a sleekest design but they promised an excellent experience with Android 8.0 Oreo along with  quality. But, after getting into the hands of critics, things have gotten a bit low. They claimed that Google’s new phone is having a possibly serious problem in form of a screen issue.

What actually is a burn-in issue? Burn-in is a problem that tends to upset OLED displays. When a part of the screen displays the same still images for a longer period of time, such as navigation icons, they can settle and start displaying up enduringly, even when they’re not supposed to be visible. Over the last week, there have been plenty of complaints about the display starting from a strange blue tint to adrift color Xeroxing to the most recent being screen burn-in. This is quite alarming for people who are thinking to buy this phone that can cost them $849.

The google just came in time in response to all this buzz. Google states:

“The Pixel 2 XL screen has been designed with an advanced POLED technology, including QHD+ resolution, wide color gamut, and high contrast ratio for natural and beautiful colors and renderings. We put all of our products through extensive quality testing before launch and in the manufacturing of every unit. We are actively investigating this report.”

Android Central and The Independent first threw light on this screen issue after testing this mobile for a week. Well we can’t ignore this problem as there will be some serious buyers out there waiting for this gadget. Let’s see how google will tackle the reviews after the launch of Google Pixel 2 XL.
