Some Pixel 2 XL owners have reported issues with what is speculated to be a faulty oleophobic coating that is rubbing off after, in some cases, just a few days of use. Turning off the ambient sensor is the temporary fix for the flashing screen issue on Pixel 2 XL. The user further added this does not happen all the time, but he has noticed this issue after the purchasing the device. One of the users wrote on the forum, "I'm 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". "I did reboot in Safe Mode and happened but once I rebooted normally it has not happened again", wrote the user. Google is yet to release an official statement on the new issue. This alone wouldn't be a big cause of alarm given the relatively small number of reports at the moment, but previous issues with the handset have some potential buyers on edge (screen burn-in after a week, strong blue tint at an angle, etc). But now some users have reported that their non-Pixel devices that were already running on Google Assistant seem to have that functionality already. Either Google has cheapened out by relying on a slightly older OLED panel to save a dime with the Pixel 2 or LG has refused to sell their best OLED panels.
