On one hand, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are being lauded for their exceptional cameras and performance, while on the other hand issues like screen burn-ins, flashing effect and blue tints are haunting the web search titan. This is not in fact a new problem. However, a user shared in a recent post that the problem may be resolved by blowing into the bottom speaker.
Google has offered the Activity Recognition API to third-party developers for several years already, enabling them to build applications that need to know what activity a user is now engaged in, be it running, walking, cycling or, indeed, driving. A lot of users have tried disabling adaptive brightness on the Pixel 2 XL, but the issue seems to persists. "I believe this is a hardware issue unfortunately - or at least in my case". One of the users wrote,"I have the new Pixel 2 (not XL) and the mic stopped working for me". Doing this made my microphone work again and it continues to work when it goes out. It strangely works when recording video and when using the speakers during calls. Blowing into the speaker like you would an old NES cartridge. "I'll be contacting support for an RMA today", the user's post read.
When Google unveiled its new Pixel 2 flagship phone lineup last month, the company also revealed a neat new feature for drivers. According to Google, it will provide you a 24 hours of listening time on a single charge.
And for the latest issue, some of you may have probably experienced it: screen flashing when locking or unlocking the phone. It is important for us to highlight the fact that Google's Pixel 2 victory over Apple's iPhone X came with their single 12 MP Shooter itself who was quite underrated and underestimated ever since we got drenched in the portrait season.
