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

Members of the Pixel User Community website are reporting that the screen has little or no responsiveness at its edges, resulting in certain taps or gestures going unrecognized.

As spotted by AndroidPolice, a large number of users on Pixel 2 have reported on Google's support forum that the preloaded Google Assistant doesn't work when they use it through Bluetooth headphones.

The Pixel 2 XL is already known to have several issues with its display, including muted colors and burn-in, but now users are discovering yet another problem with Google's larger smartphone. He tried to do swiping gestures on the display's edges, which prompted an action. It appears that many people are experiencing the problem, as seen in the comments posted on the Google Pixel 2 community page. However, tapping on the edges is not always detected by the handset.

He also thinks that the fault lies with Google's accidental touch protection software. He revealed that Google is now working on a fix to solve the problem. This new one, though, is getting a guaranteed fix in a later update.

The Pixel 2 XL is definitely not having a good time on the market, as many issues related to the device's hardware have popped up since its general availability last month. Earlier, Google has addressed the audio recording issue where high-pitch sounds can be heard in the sound files.
