Google Pixel 2 XL Screen Burn-in Issue Reported, Google Actively Investigating It

Several users have been reported a strange blue tint and screen "burn-in" issue on the new Google Pixel 2 XL. Now the company is investigating on this issue. Even some smartphone reviewers criticized about the poor color reproduction of Pixel 2 XL’s display.

The screen burn-in issue is normally associated with P-OLED screens. This issue is happening because of when a part of the display remains longer to produce a ghost image even after the display is changed to view another part.

The screen "burn-in" issue commonly affected in the navigation or status bars, windows, date, or time.

According to a report from Android Central, the Pixel 2 XL has encountered the screen burn-in issue badly. Alex Dobie from AndroidCentral shared a picture of Google Pixel 2 XL screen burn-in issue. It is showing screen burn-in where the navigation bar is located. And he also wrote;

"That's some pretty wild OLED burn-in on the Pixel 2 XL after maybe 7 days of full-time use,”.

The Google spokesperson gave a statement to The Verge regarding Google Pixel 2 XL screen burn-in issue.

"The Pixel 2 XL screen has been designed with an advanced P-OLED 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,”.
