Google Pixel 2 XL

Whether it be display controversy with the XL model, clicking/hissing noises with its smaller brother, or defective microphones across both handsets, to say that Google's latest and greatest has been faced with a bit of trouble would be an understatement.

Pixel 2 users have been complaining on social media about the device's Bluetooth overall, although it's not clear if the issues are related. Then Google Assistant won't work.

The official Pixel 2 forum has had multiple postings from users who claimed that the mic on their Pixel 2 randomly stopped working during calls or using Google Assistant. One of the users wrote on the forum, "I am not sure why, but the Pixel 2 XL screen flashes when unlocking (fingerprint and lock button), when the screen wakes up because of notifications, when the screen dims and the phone locks, and when manually locking". Some users are reporting that the Pixel 2 series has a microphone problem, while some others are seeing screen flashes on the Pixel 2 XL. However, it seems quite freakish that a problem in a premium flagship such as the Pixel 2 needs to be resolved by actions such as blowing in the microphone. However, a user shared in a recent post that the problem may be resolved by blowing into the bottom speaker. As of now, it is still unclear whether this is a hardware related issue and whether a majority of Pixel 2 XL owners have been facing the issue. While there's no permanent solution to it, but a user named Adam Zeird has found a temporary fix.

No action against those holding demonetised notes: Centre to SC
The matter was referred to the constitution bench by the bench of Justice Sikri and Justice R.K.Agrawal on February 15. The higher the degree of power, the higher the degree of trust, he argued before the Constitution bench.

'Bomb attack kills 9 in Syria Golan Heights village'
Hader, a town just inside Syrian territory, is reportedly being targeted by the Nusra Front, formally known as Jabhat Fateh al-Sham.

Low supplies, refinery work bumping up local gas prices
Those issues have led to the lowest gasoline inventories since 2015 when the BP refinery shut down in Whiting, Indiana. Because of Hurricane Harvey, some refiners delayed maintenance to cover production losses from the affected area.

The Pixel 2 flashing screen also has nothing to do with how the device is being unlocked or locked, users said in their reports. "I believe this is a hardware issue unfortunately - or at least in my case". Blowing into the speaker like you would an old NES cartridge.

Do you think that Pixel 2 XL's OLED panel by LG is of dismal quality? Apparently, there is a fix that might bring the microphone back to work.
