If you are the user of one of Google’s pixel 2 XL devices, there is one more bad news: some users are reporting that the touchscreen isn’t responding to touches on the edge of the device, as reported by Phandroid. Users reported the problem on the pixel User Community, and one user posted a video that showed the screen not responding once being tapped on the edge of the right-hand side. There was also some unresponsiveness on the left-hand side in the video.
One more user said: “I have it towards the right lower quadrant of the phone. It happens all the time while reading or trying to scroll. The screen doesn’t move just sits there. I even have to tap repeatedly to get it to scroll.” A Google community manager responded to the concerns, writing that Google has been an investigation and also the issue is addressed “in a future OTA update. Stay tuned.”
The pixel 2 XL has been plagued by problems since its release, tho’ our review of the device gives it a solid eight, half a point lower than its smaller sibling, the pixel 2. The device has had problems relating to poor sound recording quality, while Google is also investigating reports of screen burn-in on the device.
