There’s a problem with the Pixel 2 XL screen serious enough that Google has responded with a statement, according to a new report today.
The good news is that Google is acknowledging the disparity between screens, telling 9to5Google, “we will consider adding more display color options through software if that makes the product better.”
Google already has a vibrant mode that increases saturation levels by 10%, but it doesn’t really fix the issue at hand, as it’s own by default.
How much of a difference does it make?
The 6-inch Google Pixel 2 XL screen flaw shouldn’t be a deal breaker if you’re looking for an all-screen, VR-capable phone with the best camera on a mobile device. It remains a recommended product on TechRadar.
However, you should going into buying this smartphone knowing that its colors and brightness are a bit dull, especially when you view the screen from an angle.
This isn’t an issue on the Google Pixel 2, which has a 5-inch P-OLED screen with superior colors, but distractingly large bezels and a resolution capped at 1080p .
We still recommend the Pixel 2 XL for its larger, all-screen front design and more VR-friendly Quad HD resolution when using Google Daydream View.
