After the Pixel 2 XL just started rolling out, numerous owners have been reporting that its pOLED display has a serious burn-in issue, prompting Google to "actively investigate" it. Flipkart is also offering 50% buyback value if you want to upgrade the Pixel.

The main highlight of Pixel 2 is its camera, DxOMark Mobile has given the highest rating to second-gen Pixel smartphone.

Android Police's Artem Russakovskii has tweeted a video that clearly shows how bad it is on the Pixel 2 XL.

The Pixel 2 price in India starts at Rs. 61,000 which is slightly below the price of iPhone 8 base variant which comes at Rs. 64,000.

For the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL it's very easy to explain: the Pixel 2 looks just like the original Pixel, while the Pixel 2 looks just like the LG G6. Also, consumers can get cashback of Rs. 8,000 on HDFC bank credit card (on EMI transactions only). With these two offers combined, a 32GB Pixel owner can effectively purchase the 64GB Pixel 2 for as low as Rs 35,500.

In addition to these offers, Flipkart will also give away the new Google Daydream View VR headset to 5 selected winners of a social media contest on Facebook that ends on October 25. The aluminum unibody smartphone has a fingerprint sensor at their rear panels which unlocks it. Pixel 2 XL is launched with e-SIM feature but Indian variants will be supporting single nano-SIM. The 64 GB variant for Pixel 2 XL is priced at Rs 73,000, and 128GB variant priced at Rs 82,000.

Pixel 2 boasts 95 percent DCI-P3 colour coverage, Pixel 2 XL boasts an impressive 100 percent DCI-P3 coverage. Google says that the smartphones incorporate the company's approach to combine AI, hardware and software.

Furthermore, the screen is protected by a layer of Corning's latest Gorilla Glass 5. The XL has the larger, QuadHD display, as well as the taller 18:9 size ratio, while the Pixel 2 has the HD, 16:9 display.

Coming to performance, both phones are powered by Snapdragon 835 processor with Adreno 540 GPU clubbed with 4GB RAM and 64GB / 128GB of internal storage.

In Android 8.1 Oreo, you'll find a few new error codes for the FingerprintManager as well. This could also be the reason Apple dropped the audio jack from the iPhone 7 before introducing the bezel-less iPhone X. Queiroz said the primary reason to kill the audio jack from the Pixel 2 was to establish "a mechanical design path for the future".
