Now the Pixel 2 XL has an unresponsive screen issue

The Pixel 2 XL has just added another issue to what seems like an endless parade of problems with regards to its screen. Apparently, some Pixel 2 XL owners have been having trouble with the display's touch responsiveness. It may be performing its duties a bit too well, preventing owners from accessing the sides of their Pixel 2 XL in their day-to-day life while playing games or interacting with apps. Another user put together a video demonstrating issue, highlighting that swipes towards the edge usually work, but taps are hit or miss. However, when tapping near the edges, the smartphone sometimes does not pick up the command. Furthermore, Android Police said unresponsive touch on the edges of the Pixel 2 XL device is due to the device's accidental touch protection feature is very effective. Thankfully, Google has regarded the issue and will soon roll out an update to fix it. Stay tuned with us for more on the software issues on both the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. Other offers include a cashback of Rs. 8000 if they use an EMI on HDFC Card to buy the Pixel 2 or the Pixel 2 XL phone.
