Now the Pixel 2 XL has an unresponsive screen issue

Some Pixel 2 XL touchscreens are unresponsive near the edges, but a fix is coming

The Google Pixel 2 XL is a fantastic smartphone, but the issues with it just keep rolling in, specifically relating to the display.

Apart from the Assistant issue, some Pixel 2 XL users have reported that they are facing trouble while using the edges of the large-screen handset.

According to Android Police, the Pixel 2 XL's unresponsive edges are due to the device's accidental touch protection feature, which prevents the device from registering accidental touches and taps. Now there's a new bug to add to the list: unresponsive spots near the edge of the screen.

"The touchscreen works while sliding my finger along the edge works, but when touching it directly, it doesn't detect that touch along the edge", wrote Deathsoldier11 on the Pixel User Community forum.

Twitter fixes another important problem with support for 50-character usernames
Twitter announced on Tuesday 7 November 2017 that the platform would double the limit for tweets from 140 to 280 characters. At the same time, the 140-character limit did force you to be concise and witty, and there was a certain value to that.

Orrin, a Pixel 2XL Community manager, posted on the Forums, that the Pixel team is already investigating and addressing the problem in an upcoming over-the-air update. A number of reports of differential aging on the Pixel 2 XL's OLED screen will also be taken care of, in the next software update as promised by Google. "Google is well aware of the issue, and a fix will be rolled out shortly", the spokesperson said. Earlier, Google has addressed the audio recording issue where high-pitch sounds can be heard in the sound files.

The unresponsive touchscreen edges issue is different from previous Pixel 2 XL display problems though.

As we can see from the videos, the combined OIS and EIS does a pretty impressive job of stabilizing the video shot with Google's Pixel smartphones.

In addition to the smaller Pixel 2, the giant Pixel 2 XL also appears to have the same issue.
