As a part of master promotion plan, Indian users will also get free wireless earphones from Sennheiser worth Rs. 11,990 free with each Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL order. As the search engine giant's massive flagship handset has only been in the market for a few weeks, users have reported yet another issue concerning the responsiveness of the screen edges.

Multiple users have experienced trouble in operating the Google Assistant via Bluetooth headphones in Pixel 2 devices, however, Pixel 2 XL customers have reported unresponsive touch near the edges of the display. It appears that many people are experiencing the problem, as seen in the comments posted on the Google Pixel 2 community page.

The Google Pixel 2 XL is a fantastic smartphone, but the issues with it just keep rolling in, specifically relating to the display.

"It seems like the touch screen is less responsive near the right edge of the screen".

For the Pixel 2 XL users who do not use edge gestures, this issue may not have impacted their day to day usage as much. This issue can be solved through a software patch.

We reached out to Google, and a spokesperson acknowledged the issue and confirmed its fix.

The issue doesn't seem to be related to the Pixel 2 XL's hardware but could be due to its accidental touch protection feature and most users may not notice it unless they go searching for the problem. Thankfully, Google has responded to the problem, stating that it will be fixed in a coming update. Orrin, the community manager for the Pixel forums, said that Google is already investigating the problem and will fix it through an over-the-air update.
