Google Pixel 2 shipment dates slipping to November for some buyers

Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL

The screen uses a technology called POLED, which stands for "plastic organic light emitting diodes", and some users have been complaining about its boring color reproduction and alleged blue tint.

As you can see, the navigation bar has started to "burn" into the bottom portion of the screen, leaving behind a permanent outline.

Google just posted up the first factory image and OTA files for the new Pixel 2 ("walleye") and Pixel 2 XL ("taimen"). Speaking to Android Central, a Google spokesperson talked about how awesome the display is before saying, "We put all of our products through extensive quality testing before launch and in the manufacturing of every unit".

It seems like this might not be the last of the shipment disruptions we will hear of regarding the Pixel 2, as Google is seemingly making the same mistakes it made with its original Pixel smartphone.

Google, which is "investigating" the report, hasn't yet confirmed if the issue is indeed burn-in or something less serious. Google may have to recall its premium Pixel 2 XL smartphone after screen issues were reported.

No RBI directive on Aadhaar linking of bank accounts, reveals RTI reply
The government has made it mandatory to link bank accounts with Aadhaar before the deadline of December 31. Supreme Court will still hear the plea to not mandate Aadhaar linkage to bank accounts.

Google Pixel 2 XL has a lot of problem with respect to the POLED QHD+ display, like Bluish tint and overall Burn-in issues.

The AMOLED screen on the Pixel 2 appears unaffected. If a static image is displayed over time in the same position, you can still see a faded version of the image permanently "burned" in to the screen.

The problem of "burn in" or "image permanence" is more commonly associated with obsolete cathode-ray tube (CRT) display technology left displaying a stationary image for too long - hence the use of "screen savers" in operating systems. While screen burn-in is a commonplace issue, for the issue to arise mere weeks after use of what is ostensibly one of the best Android phones on the market is a cause for concern. At the moment, the issue is limited to the Pixel 2 XL and not the Pixel 2.

You only have 14 days to return the Pixel 2 XL to Google for a refund, and Verizon also offers a 14 day return policy, but you will need to pay $35 in restocking fees.
