Users of new Google Pixel 2 XL smartphones are not happy. The large format model suffers from a ghosting problem on its P-Oled (plastic Oled) screen. This effect of persistence, which is very well known on the first plasma TVs, is also called burn-in or differential aging. For example, a menu remains visible even after being closed. But for the web giant, this phenomenon is normal.

Mario Queiroz, vice president of product management posted a message on the support forum that the Google survey confirms that the differential aging of the screen is similar to that seen on other smartphones up range and should not affect the regular use of the Pixel 2 XL. Users concerned by this issue should appreciate … Google has just reported working on an update of Android that would reduce the maximum brightness of 50 cd / m² and add a system that removes buttons from the navigation bar after a certain period of inactivity.

The concept of ghost images on P-Oled displays is not new and had already been seen in 2014 on LG’s curved G Flex smartphone, which also suffered from granularity, with colors never really united. On the new LG V30 smartphone, which inspired the Pixel 2 XL and is also equipped with a P-Oled screen, the first tests reveal bland colors. A defect also present, and for good reason, on the pixel.

According to Mario Queiroz, this is normal because the screen has been designed to offer natural colors and more accurate. However “a setting increases the intensity of colors by 10% and we will add in the coming weeks a mode with even more saturated colors.”

The concerns of the Pixel 2 XL are however far from over because, when the screen of the device is viewed at an angle, the display takes a blue hue.

Only good news for users, the warranty of Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL increases to two years. it will not cover ghosting issues.
