By | November 14, 2017


Google’s latest Pixel smartphones, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are facing many issues related to their software and hardware as well. Many people have been posting about different types of issues that they are facing while using these phones. Recently, a new Unresponsive Edges on the Screen issue on the Pixel 2 XL phone arises. Many users have shared the same issue on the official forum page.



The touchscreen on the Google Pixel 2 XL smartphone is not responding properly at the edges. The same has been even documented on a video regarding this issue and some of them have complained about the same on the official Google Forum page.

Since, Google has brought squeezable screen functionality just like the the HTC U11 series smartphones, Touchscreen of this phone is a great way to launch some of the functions of the mobile phone including various apps just by pressing on the touch screen at different edges. However, the same feature seems to be unresponsive on various Pixel 2 XL phones as reported by plenty of users.

People who are able to use the Touchscreen at the edges, have to press it aggressively which is not good for them. It looks like a messy thing happening to the users’ side from the giant, Google’s own product.



Previous, many users have complained about the Microphone issue on the phone. The Microphone on the Pixel 2 devices are not working properly on some of the users of the Pixel 2 smartphones. On the other hand, Google has shipped plenty of Google Pixel 2 XL devices without the Android OS installed on it. Google has replaced all such smartphones in the past. All these issues make us believe that, Google didn’t take care about the production of these new Pixel 2 devices as the phones are getting regular issues in real life usage.

On the Touchscreen unresponsive issue at the edges of the screen, the giant has officially confirmed the issue on the forum page and they are currently looking into it. The same will be addressed in the next OTA update of the phones from Google. So wait for the next Android update to fix all such issues on the new Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL smartphones.

In order to confirm the issue, a user has shared a Video regarding this issue on the Pixel 2 XL smartphone on YouTube. You can find out the issue in the following video given below this post.

According to reports, this touchscreen issue is happening because of the accidental touch protection feature of the phone which is not that effective. Since, it looks like a software issue, Google will soon take care of it in the next OTA update and for that, we have to wait for the next official update from Google for the Pixel 2 XL smartphone.

Sadly, there is no any information regarding the release of the Next update from the giant, Google. However, we can believe that, Google will release the next update very quickly to fix this issue. It’s a major issue and Google has to solve it As soon as possible as the phone is yet to be available in the global market. To boost up the selling of the phone, they have to take care of every single issue of the phone.



Apart from the Pixel 2 XL smartphone, Google Pixel 2 works smoothly and has not faced any such issues till date. The users of the Google Pixel 2 smartphone are having a great User Interface on the device without any issues.
