Google Pixel 2 XL users facing screen flashing issue

A user said in the Pixel User Community forums that her Pixel 2 XL's screen would flash white when the device was unlocked, when the screen woke up to show notifications, when it locked by itself and when she manually locked it. This is not in fact a new problem. After weeks of discussion, recent user comments suggest there is a temporary fix for the issue - blowing into the bottom speaker.

Fast Pair in particular is an awesome feature that's now available in only select few Made for Google headphones: Google Pixel Buds of course, Libratone's Q Adapt On-Ear, and Bose® QuietComfort 35 II.

According to the reports, this issue isn't resolved by the Android 8.1 update, and it occurs with a number of different headphone brands (and on both the Pixel 2 and 2 XL). "I believe this is a hardware issue unfortunately - or at least in my case". I have had the same exact symptoms as everyone here so it may be for us all.

But if you're microphone is working perfectly, users are advised against to use this old-school technique as it may cause the microphone to fail. Blowing into the speaker like you would an old NES cartridge. Apparently, there is a fix that might bring the microphone back to work. "I'll be contacting support for an RMA today", the user's post read. While some of these issues have since been helped via software updates, it seems that Google isn't out of the woods yet, as Pixel 2 XL users have now started to complain that the anti-fingerprint coating is prone to peeling. Another one posted a video which confirmed that the process actually works. This doesn't happen all the time. Unlocking the bootloader on the new Pixel 2 is pretty easy and if you know what you're doing, it'll take only a few minutes. I've yet to have the phone a full 24 hours.

Well, these are based on mere speculations and we have to say that it is not LG's fault that the Pixel 2 came out with a major issue. Google said late last month that it was investigating the issue.
