Google Pixel 2 XL Just Can't Get A Break


This time around, the issue is an unusual banding effect that presents on some handsets when the phone's camera is in LED light.

Problems keep getting pointed out on the Pixel 2 XL and a lot of them have to do with the LG-made display.

There have been a number of issues with the new Pixel 2 and Google Pixel 2 XL smartphones, these have included issues with ghosting on the display and also sound problems. On video, this banding effect looks nearly like a strobe, and is apparent when the camera is pointed at an LED light source, such as an LED light bulb or LED display.
