Pixel 2 XL Screen Flashes When Locking or Unlocking, Some Users Report

Pixel 2 XL handsets now affected by display flashes upon unlock

After a series of flow in the Pixel 2 XL, the smaller sibling is now facing some issue related to the microphone. When we tested for the issue, for the most part Google Assistant seemed to be working fine (i.e. Google Assistant could be activated via the hotword, questions could be asked, and responses were received - all through the headset). Some users are reporting that the Pixel 2 series has a microphone problem, while some others are seeing screen flashes on the Pixel 2 XL. A user said in the Pixel User Community forums that her Pixel 2 XL's screen would flash white when the device was unlocked, when the screen woke up to show notifications, when it locked by itself and when she manually locked it.

Ever since Google started selling the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL in the market, things have gone bad to worst. Shut my screen off one time and from there on kept happening. Still, if that's no issue for you and you don't mind the Pixel 2's bezels or the Pixel 2 XL's problems, head on over to Verizon to grab either one by using the Source links below. Likewise, device owners have reported the issues persists regardless of which brand of headphones are used. Google is yet to come out with a fix for the issue. This seemingly confirms that the screen flashing issue is related to software. When users make a call the other person on the other side can not hear them. This has also been reported when giving voice commands on the affected devices.

Google is having a pretty rough stint with its newest Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL flagships. After weeks of discussion, recent user comments suggest there is a temporary fix for the issue - blowing into the bottom speaker. I have had the same exact symptoms as everyone here so it may be for us all. According to one user, blowing air in the speaker brings back the microphone. A user also compared this to blowing into an old NES cartridge to get it to work again.
