She says that her Pixel 2 XL's screen would flash white when the phone is being unlocked, when the screen wakes up to show notifications, when it locks by itself and when she manually locks it. Lately, a handful of Pixel 2, Galaxy S8, and even Galaxy Note 8 owners have noticed their mics being a bit quiet, and there's a really simple fix for that...
The time was right, Google launched its flagship smartphones - Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL just a month ago to compete with Cupertino giant's mighty iPhones.
There were some reports that the promo will only have free Google Home Minis in their standard, off-white Chalk color as part of the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL pre-order bonus. Problems with the Google Pixel 2 Mic have been acknowledged, though no official solution has been suggested by Google. Have you had to deal with Pixel 2 or 2 XL issues? Still, some users are reporting that Zerid's method worked for them, so while it isn't a long-term solution, it could help as you wait for an RMA replacement from Google.
Pixel 2 XL users have reported the issue on Pixel User Community. The latest one that has surfaced is related to the bigger Pixel 2 XL model.
Some Pixel 2 owners have reported unresponsive microphones during calls or while using voice assistant. While the smaller version of Google Pixel 2 XL, i.e. the Google Pixel 2 isn't facing any similar problems, the former has quite a few complaints of a longer charging period than is stated by Google.
A number of users have reported that blowing into the bottom speaker or USB port seems to solve the microphone issue. This doesn't happen all the time. This could still be a hardware related issue that's directly tied to Android Oreo. "Blowing into the speaker when the microphone is working causes it to fail", Zeird wrote.
