If some believe that the Pixel 2 XL is unjustly being singled out, here’s something that could balance things.
A user on Reddit reports that he received his supposedly brand new Pixel 2 with a paper that clearly said the unit failed quality control over “cosmetic damage”.
While this is so far an isolated, and definitely odd, case, it definitely fans the flames surrounding both of Google’s smartphones and confuses buyers on who to lay the blame on.
It is definitely disappointing, not to mention worrying, if the unit did indeed have cosmetic damages.
The owner and Redditor didn’t dare touch anything else other than opening the box and taking a photo as evidence.
It could have simply been a clerical error as well, but an error nonetheless.
