Pixel 2 XL display controversy

Google should nevertheless be credited for this achievement since last year’s Pixel 2 XL was bombarded with criticism for having a poor display. The most notable complaints were the Blueshift, lifeless color representation and screen-burn in. Google was able to solve the issue of ‘lifeless color representation” via a software update in a matter of days, by adding two new modes for the users; saturated and boosted. However, in order to remove the Blueshift and burn-in problems customers had to wait another six months since the Pixel 2 headsets that came after February resolved these issues. Interestingly the smaller model, Pixel 2 did not face any problems since its display was an OLED panel made by Samsung while the Pixel 2 XL’s display was POLED, manufactured by LG.
