Best Worst Phone Of All Time: Pixel 2 Has Clicking & Hissing Noises Due To Design Defect

Have some hissing with your burn-in.

The Pixel 2 XL has been under fire ever since its release for its display, and while we wait for Google to announce what it'll be doing following this controversy, the smaller Pixel 2 is now experiencing issues of its own. Rather than having screen burn-in after just days of use, some units of the Pixel 2 are exhibiting clicking and high-pitched hissing sounds as reported in visit this link Google's Pixel User Community.

One particular thread shows that over a hundred different users are afflicted with this problem, and while the Pixel 2 seems to be the main device that's affected, visit this link Android Police's Artem Russakovskii has the same problem on his Pixel 2 XL.

Some users report that the hissing/clicking only occurs when the display is turned on, with another stating that there's constant beeps and clicks when on a phone call. The noise doesn't appear to be noticeable unless the Pixel 2 is right next to your ear, but even so, it's something that Google needs to fix.

Google is encouraging people to begin an RMA for their device if they're affected by hiss-gate, but in the meantime, turning off NFC appears to stop the clicking sound. Unfortunately, there's currently no way to temporarily stop the hissing.

One representative from Google said that a fix would be released in the "upcoming week", but until we get an official statement from Google itself, we wouldn't advise holding your breath for that – especially since it's still unclear as to whether this is a software or hardware issue.

Design Flaw

Oooh, oooh. I know what's causing it! Once I found that turning off NFC fixes it, I recognized it. Anyone can test and experience this issue on any phone, you just need unshielded wire headphones. Simply plug the headphones into the device and run the wire along the back across the NFC sensor. The NFC should produce the pops and clicks that are being heard.

The reason this is happening is due to the internal speaker being unshielded from the NFC. For the Pixel 2 having a widespread issue it is not a fixable problem but a design flaw. But as for Artem's Pixel 2 XL, it's simply a defective device. #artemsluck

People avoiding this thread because fanboys? Or because no one buys Pixels?

No hissing or screen burn in here yet. Just blue tint and realistic colors, which I'm already over (non-factors). I'll let you folks know if I come across anything annoying with the phone, but so far, so good.

I know y'all anticipating like

Just got my 2 XL. No issues yet. But if I do have any I'm returning it with a quickness.

As someone said above, this thread is not going to be as popular because far more people buy iPhones.

I don't get the fan boy sh*t.

fu*k Apple.

I've had the Pixel 2 for almost a week. I have the blue tint. That is due to polarization for people that wear shades. The Pixel 2 has a Samsung display so hopefully I don't end up with same issues the LG display of the Pixel 2 XL. The performance of the phone is insane. It has the fastest fingerprint scanner I've used. The camera is amazing. I've gotten anywhere from 5.5 to almost 7 hours of SOT on this 2770 mAh battery. So far it's better than my Pixel by a long shot. The haptic feedback while texting is very close to the iPhone.

The front facing speakers are good they get pretty loud and decent base levels. What was surprising to me is the sound quality of my headphones using the dongle. I just knew it would be sh*t but I was wrong. I do wish it had 6gb of ram. The feel of the phone is nice as well. Due to the plastic coating its very light it doesn't feel like a premium phone. Maybe that's because of the metal of the OG Pixel and the glass from my S8. Fingerprints don't show up as much so I don't have to constantly wipe it down. So far I'm loving this phone. If it goes down hill I'll definitely say it. My Pixel ran like a champ for a year and got better over time. I don't expect anything less from from the Pixel 2.

... dongle ... ugh. But thanks for the review, Im looking to move on from my Nexus 6P but right now I don't like a any of the phones out at their current price levels. v30 interests me but im not spending 800 for any phone.

Yeah man that was the only thing that worried me. I have some wireless Beats but I can use them at work. I also have some Beats ear buds that are wired so when I hooked the dongle up I was shocked by the sound quality. I looked on Amazon for some USB-C headphones but I didn't see anything I wanted to spend my money on.

Sir, my phone doesn't have any of these problems. It's been flawless, still no lag, lightning fast UI, excellent speakers, good battery life (not great)...and, yes, both cameras are still taking a giant dump all over whichever phone you're rocking. Enjoy yours in good health...
