Now the Pixel 2 XL has an unresponsive screen issue

Some Pixel 2 XL touchscreens are unresponsive near the edges, but a fix is coming

Some Google Pixel 2 XL smartphones cannot register taps along the edges of the display

Apart from this, one of the Pixel 2 XL users uploaded a video on Youtube, showing the unresponsive touch at the corners of the device by using a display tester app. Users on Google's product forums have started reporting the lack of touch sensitivity along the edges of the display. While the handset activates the Assistant once the "OK Google" hotword is passed through the connected headphones, the virtual assistant doesn't listen to any commands.

"The mic icon turns into the four dots indicating that Assistant is listening, but they don't move, indicating it hears something".

It might feel like Google is following Apple's script right now: remove the headphone jack from your flagship phone, ship the phone with a depressingly bad dongle adapter, and announce a new pair of revolutionary Bluetooth headphones to divert the you-caused frustrations of your customers into additional retail transactions.
