Pixel 2 XL touchscreen has dead spots around the edges

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

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

Fortunately, there is a difference with the cases of an unresponsive touchscreen that would be good news for owners of the much-maligned device.

The thread starter uploaded a video demonstration of the problem, and it clearly shows the Pixel 2 XL not recognizing taps along the edges of its display. However, when tapping near the edges, the smartphone sometimes does not pick up the command.

The premiers of China and Russian Federation , two other important Duterte backers, will also be in Manila . President Duterte has also threatened to kill human rights activists, journalists and critics.

Judging by the fact that an official Google Community Manager has responded to say a fix is in the works, this sounds like a genuine issue that Google is acknowledging. Like Google, Apple will fix its problem through a future software update. According to a statement by a Google rep, this issue seems to have been fixed, at least when it comes to Pixel phones and factory reset/device classification.

The unresponsive touchscreen edges issue is different from previous Pixel 2 XL display problems though.

Idea Cellular, Vodafone India to sell towers business to ATC Telecom
In 2014-15, ICIS reported total income of Rs238 crore, according to filings with the Registrar of Companies. Idea will sell its entire stake in ICISL, and Vodafone India will sell a business undertaking to ATC TIPL.

Google unveiled the Pixel Buds for $159 in early October along with the Google Home, Pixel 2, Pixel 2 XL and more.

As we can see from the videos, the combined OIS and EIS does a pretty impressive job of stabilizing the video shot with Google's Pixel smartphones. This new issue came to light in the Pixel Community Forum via Android Police, with a user reporting that the edges of the screen don't always react to tactile action.

Classy Alexander Zverev clinches three-set win over Marin Cilic
Players qualify for the final event of the year by accumulating enough points throughout the year to finish inside the top eight. The 36-year-old Federer broke the American in the first game and went on to take the first set 6-4 in just 36 minutes.

It is interesting to note that the same issues have not been reported with the Google Pixel, which is the smaller Pixel phone manufactured by HTC even though the phone also uses an OLED panel. On my own personal Pixel 2 XL, the behavior is very similar, but with instances where taps do end up working as intended.
