Looks like Google was quick to fix the issues that its new Google Pixel phones have been experiencing. Which mainly includes the Google Pixel 2 XL. That suffers from color and burn in issues due to its OLED display technology. A new software update was recently released for the Google Pixel 2 XL that brings several tweaks to improve issues that the OLED display on the smartphone is having.
With the new software update Google Pixel 2 XL now comes with three colors modes. That includes Boosted, Natural and Saturated mode. While till now Google Pixel 2 XL was only limited to one mode called Vivid colors. Though with the new color modes user should not expect their Pixel 2 XL smartphone to suddenly burst with colors. As it’s not something Google was to going for int he first place, because the company is aiming for natural colors. But with the Saturated color mode there should be some improvement over the dull color mode that Google Pixel 2 XL had. While the Boosted option is a replacement for the existing Vivid color mode.
Aside from that the software update also aims to reduce the display burn in issue that the Google Pixel 2 XL has. Which includes limiting the phone to reach its full brightness. While the navigation bar will also fade out after the phone is inactive for some time.
Whatever the case maybe OLED displays on smartphones are facing a lot of issues. Which mainly includes the Google Pixel 2 XL and the recently released iPhone X as well. While Samsung phones does not seem to be suffering from the same issues. As both the Galaxy S8 and Note 8 smartphones from Samsung are using OLED panels. That offers vibrant colors with no burn issues.
So then what is Google doing wrong here? Well it seems like Google neglected the issues that OLED display technology comes with. Though it would have been better if Google tried to resolve these issues first before introducing it to the market.
