The Pixel 2 XL just can’t seem to catch a break.
It has been hounded with this or that issue related to its screen.
Both the Pixel 2 XL but more prominently the smaller Pixel 2 have been reported to be emitting an odd high-pitched or crackling sound from the earpiece speaker.
And while a temporary workaround seems to have been discovered, it doesn’t exactly inspire confidence in the overall quality of Google’s second gen smartphones.
A Pixel 2 owner by the name of “Roy M.” posted on the Google product forums to report that his Pixel 2 was emitting a high-pitch frequency sound as well as clicking under a specific set of circumstances.
Those circumstances include having the screen on, the phone unlocked, and the phone held up like taking a call.
