Why are people talking about the Pixel 2 XL screen?
People are talking about the pixel two xl screen, and it's not in a good way.
Google's flagship phone which was released October 19th, features a P solid screen made by LG.
Some reviewers, and users on Reddit and XDA developers are discussing these three issues.
One, colors on the two xl screen look muted.
2. There's a blue tint to the screen when you view it at an angle that's not straight on, and 3. There's a grainy texture that shows up when scrolling down web pages.
Google has responded in regards to the colors by saying the display has been calibrated this way on purpose.
Quote,"WE DESIGNED THE PIXEL DISPLAY TO HAVE A MORE NATURAL AND ACCURATE RENDITION OF COLORS THIS YEAR BUT WE KNOW SOME PEOPLE PREFER MORE VIVID COLORS SO WE'VE ADDED AN OPTION TO BOOST COLORS BY 10% FOR A MORE SATURATED" Saturated display.
If you compare different phones side by side, these issues may be noticeable.
In CNET's comparison between the PIxel and the LG V30 which uses a P-OLED screen of the same size and resolution, The Pixel's colors do appear less vibrant.
Google has also said if there was demand for additional color options these may be added through a future software update.
