7 reasons why the Pixel 2 is better than the iPhone X

7 reasons why the Pixel 2 is better than the iPhone X

Just a bit before the new Pixel 2 phones launched, Google released a new trade-in program that allows you to swap an older phone for credit that can be applied (in the form of a partial refund) on a purchase. Fortunately, there is a difference with the cases of an unresponsive touchscreen that would be good news for owners of the much-maligned device.

As per a Pixel User Community post, some Pixel 2 XL owners have been noticing dead spots close to the bezels, specifically on the right-hand edge of the screen. However, tapping on the edges is not always detected by the handset. Thankfully, Google has regarded the issue and will soon roll out an update to fix it. Stay tuned with us for more on the software issues on both the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. Like Google, Apple will fix its problem through a future software update.

This is likely caused by Google's software being a little aggressive when it comes to rejecting accidental touches.

As spotted by AndroidPolice, a large number of users on Pixel 2 have reported on Google's support forum that the preloaded Google Assistant doesn't work when they use it through Bluetooth headphones.

The unresponsive touchscreen edges issue is different from previous Pixel 2 XL display problems though.

In addition to the smaller Pixel 2, the giant Pixel 2 XL also appears to have the same issue. "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. The feature prevents slight, unintended touches on the screen to register as a command, but the problem shows that Google might have gone overboard with it.
