  • Google Pixel 2 XL vs Apple iPhone 8 Plus: Which is best?

Screen burn-in is a very common issue on OLED phones when the same object is allowed to remain on the screen for long periods of time. Android Central's Alex Dobie tweeted that his burn in happened within just 7 days of full-time use.

It is noted that such problems with the screen - it is not uncommon for matrices LG, but usually burnout manifests itself after about a year of using smartphones, not in a week.

The report further states that the "screen problem" seems to annoy different viewing angles.

Consternation surrounding the display in the Google Pixel 2 XL is well known at this point, and to be honest most of it has been pretty overblown.

Several reviewers have been criticizing the display of the Google Pixel 2 XL citing problems such as unusual blue tint and poor color reproduction. The traces of an image are noticeable on the screen even after it's gone; meanwhile, the next one appears.

On the iPhone 8 Plus, you'll find a pair of 12MP sensors, with the main camera (f/1.8) packing in optical image stabilisation while the telephoto lens (f/2.8) still lacks it. However, it is also advisable to wait for Google to finish its investigation as there is no confirmation on whether the issue is temporary or permanent.

Screen burn-ins aren't unknown to many but seeing them as early as a week is what that could make many users comfortable. Hence, it is a bit odd to see such an issue to appear so soon on Pixel 2 XL. It's not offering a verdict on the issue at this stage, but it stresses that it puts products through "extensive quality testing".

The Verge reached out for a comment from Google and the statement they received seems to be far from satisfactory. "We are actively investigating this report".
