Since Google Pixel 2 XL users have encountered various problems on its display such as blue tint, poor color production and screen burn-in, early reviewers of the smartphone have claimed that its OLED screen is of mediocre quality. The newest problem that has surfaced on the Pixel 2 XL is that its screen flashes for a split second before it is unlocked.

The above video shows the flashing screen issue that Pixel 2 XL users are facing. The user who has uploaded the video on YouTube claims that issue stopped momentarily when the phone was restarted, but it surfaced again next morning. He says that the problem surfaced immediately after he purchased the phone.
