Google Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL have been plagued with a series of software level issues, and Google has been fixing them one by one. An owner took to the Pixel User Community forum a few weeks ago to complain about his unit's unresponsiveness along the edges of the display.

A new wave of complaints revealed that some Google Pixel 2 XL owners were having difficulty with the smartphone's display, which at this point could no longer be considered a surprise. Members of the Pixel User Community website are reporting that the screen has little or no responsiveness at its edges, resulting in certain taps or gestures going unrecognized. The original poster noticed that while sliding his finger along the screen's edges worked as expected, his taps along the edges were not always registered. Nevertheless, it is comforting to know that Google will fix the problem in the future. To solve the problem, Google has promised its users that soon a software update will be released consulting the display issues faced worldwide. Furthermore, Android Police said unresponsive touch on the edges of the Pixel 2 XL device is due to the device's accidental touch protection feature is very effective.

The Google Pixel smartphones have been acknowledged by various critics for their attractive OLED displays and highest rated smartphone cameras. "No transcription of my voice appears, and Assistant doesn't do anything, and eventually goes back to sleep", a Pixel 2 user wrote on the forum.
