George T., 09 Nov 2017This is the funniest story IÂ’ve ever read about a phone - you have to blow into it to make-it... moreNot exactly the same issue, but the Galaxy S4 gathered dirt near its proximity sensor after a while, rendering it unusable (like, the screen turned off and wouldn't turn back on while on call or listening to a WhatsApp audio, or something like this)
The solution: blow air in the earpiece (which was right next to the sensor), though for many people only pressured air cans worked.
So, it's not a first, but also is not something excusable (specially because the S4 issue only came up after over a year of usage, whilst the Pixel 2s are getting all these issues within a few weeks since their announcement)
ThatÂ’s called KARMA :)
Remember what happened with Note7 when Samsung mocked Apple Iphone 7 ?
And now google they mocked apple and theyÂ’re paying for it.
This is the funniest story IÂ’ve ever read about a phone - you have to blow into it to make-it work!
And this is supposed to be a high-end device from GoogleÂ…
Leave alone that new pixels are ugly, now they turn to have one too many problems.
Top tip: if your pixel 2 mic does not work during calls - do not blow into bottom speaker, just blow it off and buy a better looking and working phone!
Google Pixel 2 mic not working during calls? Try blowing into bottom speaker(SERIOUSLY) glad I got don't buy flagships anymore,no disrespect to those who have,but come on all these apples Googles Sammy's ect ect are taking the mic,you want the earth for what ? Half baked product! Shocking to say the least!
wasox, 09 Nov 2017Ha ha ha just like when old game cartriges refused to work until you blew them several times!!... moreHa ha I used to do that! These pixels have been pretty problematic really.....not good PR especially when you have phones like op5 and nokia 8 offering near stock with no issues. That's not too mention Samsung and apple.
Loved the little smaller Pixel 2 when I saw it last week. Photography was stellar I have to say. Felt nice too, not as good as the A9 glass to frame but still nice.
at least the note 7 has only the battery issue, iphone 6 has the bendgate, iphone 4 has the antennagate, but the pixel has multiple issues, is this google quality standards?!
Non-smartphone company trying to produce a smartphone, you won't get the best materials and quality out of the smartphone manufacturers.
Wait, so now the Pixel 2 refuses to even work properly as a communications device? Wow omg what an amazing phone, sooo innovative, such a fantastic stock software experience, Its a flipping google phone, totally worth the price tag without a shadow of a doubt! Look no further! This is the perfect device for you! Forget the Galaxy S8, forget the Note 8, forget the LG V30, forget the Xperia XZ, forget the HTC U11, who wants a device that actually functions like it should? That's so boring!
Claudiu.Lucian, 09 Nov 2017This is what happens when you put other companies to manufacture your phones and you actually ... moreOnly SONY has remained Authentic, SONY produces all the hardwares by itself,Camera,headphones,display etc, SAMSUNG depends on KGI for headphones, Blackberry is made by some other companies, Nokia by HMD, and IPHONE depends on... For it's Oled display, we all go back to SONY one day and will apologize for the negative attitude towards this company for years.
Thank God I bought my s8+ (150$ off) pixel 2 is a disaster. I'll buy a pixel in 2020 once Google gets there act together
Claudiu.Lucian, 09 Nov 2017This is what happens when you put other companies to manufacture your phones and you actually ... moreit's common these days,some companies make headphones for samsung cuz they can't do it themselves, hmd produces nokia,tcl makes motorola, lg makes pixels, don't get confused it's more confusing than you think,relax and drink a coffee
Basic features of a phone affected so badly and demanding $899 (Pixel-2 india) just for software is too crazy. Come up with your own production like Apple, you can still import components from other vendors. At least you might know what you have done to your hardware when such issues creeps in. Better luck next time Google. I was thinking to grab one if smaller Pixel 2 like it was rumoured before release. Thank god I will grab a 5t now. Peace!
Ha ha ha just like when old game cartriges refused to work until you blew them several times!!!! Haha ha
Claudiu.Lucian, 09 Nov 2017This is what happens when you put other companies to manufacture your phones and you actually ... moreYou should never buy a phone today based on the promise of a software tomorrow. And make no mistake: I do not believe that GoogleÂ’s software changes are going to alter the bad experience of this screen.
