How big of a problem is the Pixel 2 XL's screen, really?
I reviewed the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL a couple of weeks ago. After that review was published, we discovered that the 2 XL exhibits more image retention than you'd expect on a flagship (or really any) phone, especially one so early in its lifecycle. Google quickly moved to address the issue as best it could, saying it's confident there's no real burn-in, but also promising software updates to mitigate against it going forward. The company is also extending the warranty to two years.
