Google bombs with their newest phone....$850 for a phone with a horrible screen..UPDATE NOW PEOPLE REPORT SCREEN BURN IN AFTER JUST DAYS OF USE

Over the weekend, people with review units of the Pixel 2 XL began noticing a problem. No, not the already-known issues of muddy color and grainy textures when viewed in low-light, but one that’s potentially more worrisome: screen burn-in. First reported on Twitter by Android Central’s Alex Dobie, multiple people have noticed that when you look at the screen with a gray background, you can see faint outlines of the phone’s navigation buttons on the bottom.

You can see it below, and I can confirm I’m seeing something similar on my own review unit.

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

Google’s new Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL offer a lot of features but as with any new smartphone, it’s not without its issues. Complaints of a less vibrant display than the previous generation Pixel have prompted Google to state that it may add more color options for users in a future update. The company said it targeted a more neutral and realistic panel this time around, rather than the heavy saturation usually associated with OLED displays.

However, those haven’t been the only complaints levelled at the Pixel 2 XL’s display. A few reports of a “grainy” or blotchy image in very low light conditions have surfaced, along with a blue tint that can be noticed when looking at the phone off-angle. Other complaints have also suggested that the handset might suffer from uneven color distribution.

Sadly, for Google and all of us, the Pixel 2 XL screen is the cause of the issues. One of the problems is, in my opinion, unacceptable for an expensive flagship.

$850 sorry google but that is Gaming PC price territory. I aint going to fall for that, for a cellphone that lasts what 3 yrs? max? and that has the storage space of something out of the early 2000s fuck that. Its not a computer its just a cellphone, i have one its worth about £50 and it has a color screen as well, 1080p as well, does all that android stuff, apps, internet, video camera etc etc, heck it even plays movies, radio, GPS sat nav... everything i want it to do.

I just got the Samsung Note 8.

Not even a little bit sorry about it.

The Google Pixel series does look promising though. It was just bone headed not to make the screen a priority on the new one.

This is a top of the line handheld computer which has an app that makes phone calls. Calling it just a phone doesn't represent what it actually is.

I bought a pixel 2 xl on preorder. The display is complete garbage. Strange blue tint when turning the phone to the side, very dull washed out colors and weird grainyness. I kept it for 24 hours and sent it back to Google for a refund.
