The issue is actually pretty Minor IMHO.
It may be that the camera doesn't have both NTSC and PAL frame rates. Maybe because of some stupid optimisation. I guess it can be cured by a firmware.
Having said that, the sheer number of hiccups on the Pixel 2 phones is nothing short of AMAZING. They should Refund ATLEAST $100 to all the brace early adopters of these seriously beta phones.
ethereal, 14 Nov 2017Looks like GSMA is on some mission to dethrone this device lol!! WTF, this is not fake news, its factual and people a lot of money for their gadgets, at least they should get their moneys worth and i think samsung is the king with android devices not pixles
All of these issues with Google,iPhone, any other big phone manufacturer is a byproduct of their unjustified price hikes. If this, or any of the above were a 300-400$ phone user might say, yeah but it's not a common scenario and it's a good piece of tech. Now....at 1k$ or close to it .... well...this phone better be perfect in any way and any scenario because i just payed a LOT of money for it.
The f with Google.. Seriously next time check your damn phone.

Nexus 6P screen popup after nearly 2 years use due to battery swelling issue. Though I bought an extended warranty from third-party, they refused to take my case mentioning that I had broken the screen or called physical damage. Had to get it fixed outside by replacing the battery for nearly $35 (total charges for the battery and replacement)...
we know pixel 2 got superb grade in Dx0 mark, this mean that pixel 2 camera is so good/too sensitive so they can catch LED flickering, lol
Looks like GSMA is on some mission to dethrone this device lol!!
LEDs are capable to emit stable lights. I don't understand why manufacturers make them to flicker (flickering is caused by PWM). It's just depending on what driver do they use for the LEDs.

Probably sign off with LG and HTC to trust them on keep the QC and any problem, depending on how much responsibility each should take for the kind of issues that came up. But after this, maybe Google should take charge. This is probably why Apple doesn't wanna make their own hardware in case problems like this occur, there's a whole lot to clean up.
And this is not only phone isue. Its caused by cheap/bad rectifier circuits in LED lighting.

I'm more amazed by those going for the cheap phones then expecting it to be like flagships lol
Be nice to others.
Sammy recalling note 7's had nothing to do with Sammy being interested in people's safety,it was done solely to stop their reputation being totally ruined,to stop even more class action cases in a few differeent countries amid to avoid them being prosecuted by places like the EU and the UK et,for knowing allowing dangerous products to be sold.
The first thing Sammy did,long before the recall was to hire one of the major reputation minding firms to try and kill as many of the reports off as quickly as possible, Sammy are still employing them,notice how few or little of court cases or other legal actions have gained any or much media coverage,that's precisely what these reputation guard firms are paid to do..
Sammy had enough problems overall already at home,the last thing it needed on top was a massive number of further injuries or deaths caused by known dangerous Sammy products and all the bias coverage government lead prosecutions would have caused..

I sometimes wonder if low end and mainstream phones suffer as many problems as "flaghips" do or their users just shrug off with "it is just a 200-300$ device".
Exactly that same thing happens on HTC U11. Coincidence or not.....
