Pixel 2 problems surface again, this time with Google Assistant

Sorry Apple fans! Google Pixel 2 steals iPhone X's thunder, find out why

Although the phone was graced with such high numbers, iPhone X impressive showboating by Apple came a point short to Google's Pixel 2, who was only 2 point short of a complete 100.

Pixel 2 users have been complaining on social media about the device's Bluetooth overall, although it's not clear if the issues are related. Apparently, attempting to pull up Google Assistant while you're using a pair of Bluetooth headphones will result in the audio notification to let you know Assistant is listening, but then when you begin to talk, it doesn't actually register anything. At the moment, the issue is now limited to Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL owners are not affected. A video of the smartphone with the problem has also been revealed. According to a post on Google Product Forums, some users are reporting that the Pixel 2 XL's screen flashes when they unlock their device. Users of the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL experienced more problems and issues than one can count.

Pixel 2 XL users have reported the issue on Pixel User Community. After a series of OLED-related issues such as tiresome colours and screen burn-in, users are now reportedly facing a couple of new problems.

There seems to be no end to the long list of issues related to the new Pixel 2 devices. The software update specifically addressed various screen issues such as a more saturated colour option and a protection against screen burn-in.


One of the users reported a temporary solution to the issue, "I believe this is a hardware issue unfortunately - or at least in my case".

"Yes. Blowing into the speaker like you would an old NES cartridge".

Google is having a hard time with the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL flagship devices. Apparently, there is a fix that might bring the microphone back to work.
