Google Will Fix Pixel 2 XL Screen Problems With Several Software Changes


Here's what Google will be doing to 'fix' the Pixel 2 XL's display issues.
Updated on October 27, 2017 – A few hours after releasing its initial response, Google then commented on the Pixel 2 XL's blue tint when looking at the display from an angle. Per Google, "We want to add some info regarding the blue tint that some of you have been asking about. The slight blue tint is inherent in the display hardware and only visible when you hold the screen at a sharp angle. All displays are susceptible to some level of color shift (e.g. red, yellow, blue) when viewing from off angles due to the pixel cavity design. Similar to our choice with a cooler white point, we went with what users tend to prefer and chose a design that shifts blue." Take that as you will.


We've been talking about the Pixel 2 XL for a while now, and over the past few days, our focus has been on the phone's display. Two main issues that people have with it are dull or unsaturated colors, and burn-in where the navigation bar lies. Google said that it was "actively investigating" these complaints on October 23, and now just a few days later, we have an official response from the company outlining its plans to address the recent uproar from critics and consumers alike.
