To avoid problems, users are advised to lower the brightness of the display manually. One of the users wrote,"I have the new Pixel 2 (not XL) and the mic stopped working for me". Either Google has cheapened out by relying on a slightly older OLED panel to save a dime with the Pixel 2 or LG has refused to sell their best OLED panels.

The Pixel 2 flashing screen also has nothing to do with how the device is being unlocked or locked, users said in their reports.

Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL owners are complaining about a bug that prevents Google Assistant from working with Bluetooth headphones, Android Police first spotted.

According to a discussion on one of Google's Product Forums the Pixel 2 microphone does not work in some critical scenarios which include while the user is on a call or when the Google Assistant is functioning.

As it moves forward, Google is attempting to fix its issues with software updates, even for hardware based problems. Google said late last month that it was investigating the issue. The software update specifically addressed various screen issues such as a more saturated colour option and a protection against screen burn-in.
