This morning, we have a new bug that is ailing the Pixel 2 XL's sibling, the Google Pixel 2. A consumer rights firm begun looking into several Pixel 2-related complaints already including units shipping without Android, installation issues, empty tray for a wired Pixel Buds, unimpressive audio quality in video recording, and the clicking sound during calls. Some have found that disabling this feature prevents the issue, others say that even just toggling it off and then on is a temporary solution.
Owners of both Pixel 2 and the Pixel 2 XL smartphones are encouraged to take legal action against Google, HTC and LG because of the issues with the display of both the smartphones. The problem also doesn't appear to be affecting the smaller Pixel 2, which also comes with an OLED display. The user further added this does not happen all the time, but he has noticed this issue after the purchasing the device.

Talking about the microphone issue first, some Pixel 2 owners have reported unresponsive microphones during calls or while using voice assistant. The latest one that has surfaced is related to the bigger Pixel 2 XL model. However, a user shared in a recent post that the problem may be resolved by blowing into the bottom speaker. This could still be a hardware related issue that's directly tied to Android Oreo. Till this problem is fixed, you can count on the word of other users who have claimed that this solution will make the mic work! Blowing into the speaker like you would an old NES cartridge.
