"With the Pixel 2 XL display, it seems the response time isn’t quite high."
I think you meant the response time IS quite high.
AnonD-392500, 24 Oct 2017Not all oled displays are made the same way. Samsung amoled displays never had this issue.i have used Galaxies since the SGSII.
to this year S8 and Note8, all are the same in this regard.
if you say Samsung OLED never has this issue, you clearly never used one.

This used to be issue on older Samsung AMOLED panels but Samsung dealt with that years ago.". It is pity LG made a poor OLED panel now after it's main rival almost perfected AMOLEDs. My 2015's S6E screen didn't get burn in issues till now and 2017's Pixel 2 xl got it within weeks. LG completely messed things up for themselves and Google.
ZloiYuri, 24 Oct 2017Pixel 2xl uses the same bad screen. We don't hear about v30 issues because of tiny amount of sales.No, you don't hear about the V30 because it doesn't have the issues:

I've used my S7 for over 6 months and never had a similar issue. This seems to be a very specific issue: black changing to dark colors with a huge delay, but switches to brighter colors just fine. According to problem description, it only happens with very low brightness.
I don't think it is OLED problem as OLEDs are advertised to have nearly 0ms response time. Could be connected to display controller or image processing (power saving techniques) or something else.

Are you one of those pro guys who think led tvs are different than lcd tvs ?

I've read half a dozen LG V30 reviews,and all of them said that the worst thing about it is display,that new P-OLED( as it seems G6 got better display even it's an good old LCD).Pixel 2 XL uses the same unit,so obviously LG messed up.It doesn't look like a software bug,it is about hardware..

I am not a fan of LG products and almost all LG products have at least 1 issue. I had LG air conditioner. It stops working after 6 months. I had LG LCD TV. Its remote control stops working after 3 months. My LG phone stops working after 1 year for no reason. LG has very poor quality control. Sometimes, they have no idea what's wrong with their products. LG's bootloop issue still not resolved till now.
it's in all OLED display.
my S8 and Note8 included, it's a nature of OLED.
if Pixel gets this kind of news, it means Pixel is getting popular.
ProJames, 24 Oct 2017That's no AMOLED in the Pixel XL2. It's a P-OLED by LG. So no sammy involvedI know. But the person who replied to me has talked about his/her Samsung phones that exhibit the issue, in which I disagree.
mixa, 24 Oct 2017Literally nitpicking, I can't even notice it on that video.I don't know what kind of eyes do you have, but without lying, I can easily notice the issue straight away.
Not in the first video, but on the second one, it's so severe that I immediately noticed it.
robogo, 24 Oct 2017The problem is cost.
Samsung has the priciest OLED displays on the market for a reason - t... moreYup, and everything great really comes at a cost. Which is why I don't trust budget smartphone manufacturers too much like Xiaomi, etc.. I'd rather pay premium price tag for Apple or Samsung or Sony because of the quality that I could get from paying it.
About the display, I guess it's a very faulty display that Google used for the Pixel 2 phones this year. The panels came from LG and Samsung, both of which don't have this issue at all, at least not that there are some reports about it.
Google cheaped out too much this year. This and the removal of headphone jack are the best evidences of it.
