It was during last month when some owners of Google’s Pixel 2 smartphone started complaining of a weird buzzing sound emanating from the device’s ear piece, especially when taking a phone call. And interestingly enough, there were other strange noises too, including a high pitch noise and what sounds like a ticking clock.
Google has since addressed those noise issues, saying that it will be working on a fix to get rid of those glitches. Recently however, a Google community manager by the name of Orrin has posted on Google’s Pixel user community web page that the fix may be coming sooner than anticipated. According to Orrin, the fix for the buzz noise should arrive by way of software update that will be rolled out in the next few weeks.
Despite the fact that there was no promised date of deployment for the software update, affected owners of Pixel 2 devices can rest assured that they need only wait until next month, or perhaps until early January, at the latest. It goes without saying that for the meantime, they might have to deal with the buzzing noise.
One can say that the last few weeks have not been so good to Google’s flagship offerings this year. First, there was that odd bluish shade that Pixel 2 XL users had reported, especially when the device’s display is tilted at a certain angle. Then there was the burn-in issue that was spotted on the same device’s screen, wherein traces of previously viewed images still linger on the display.
To Google’s credit, it has been very diligent in providing patches for some of the issues. Nearly a couple of weeks ago, it had rolled out a fix for the burn-in problem on the Pixel 2 XL. That same software update also came with expanded options for color saturation, which took care of the curious bluish tint.
Despite these aforementioned screen related issues, Google has had to deal with other Pixel 2 related problems. Apart from the buzzing noise, there were also reports of inconsistent audio recording when shooting video footage, syncing problems with Pixel Buds, security issues with the Home Mini, and even faulty screen responsiveness. Sure, these concerns are far from being deal breakers (despite these issues, the Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL remain two of the finest Android powered mobile devices you can buy today), but they must be getting annoying for those who decided to purchase this year’s Pixel offerings in order to enjoy the most pure and supposedly hassle free Android experience.
