A stable experience is what Google needs nowadays to counter the iPhone X. However, following the massive criticism over the blue-tint display and some premature screen burn-in issues on the Pixel 2 XL, Google's Pixel 2 is now reported to have a conflict with branded Bluetooth headphones that emerges when using Google Assistant. "There is a fairly large area in the bottom right corner that is unresponsive, and the taps aren't registered", a Pixel 2 XL user wrote while explaining the issue on the support forum. If the problem does lie with the hardware itself, then it would a much bigger headache for both Google and the consumers.

Indeed this seems fishy and as the source reports it is to do with accidental touch protection logic. The fix is expected to roll out through an over-the-air (OTA) software update, although the release date of the fix is yet not specified.
