Google is actively investigating reports that the Pixel 2 XL is suffering from screen burn. This is after some people noticed clear signs of screen burn on their new Pixel 2 XL phones. Even though screen burn-in is fairly common, the fact that it happens after a week is a concern.
Showing signs of severe screen burn-in
This issue was first spotted on Android Central, when one of its Pixel 2 XL review units showed signs of severe screen burn-in after a week of regular use. This is on a screen that has already been criticized by some reviewers for displaying issues with vibrant colors and detailed textures.
This tweet sparked a response from other Google Pixel 2 XL owners who have also noticed significant side effects on their phones. The main problem area is the navigation bar at the bottom of the screen, which clearly shows the images of the buttons «Back», «Home» and «Multitasking».
