Google Pixel and Pixel XL are less than two months old, but like any other new piece of hardware, they have their own problems and issues.
Google made a huge shift from the traditional Nexus branding to a new Pixel and Pixel XL naming for its 2016 handsets. With this shift, there came more than just a name change. The tech giant changed basically everything many people knew about the company’s Nexus smartphones – be it the hardware, design language, software, and even prices.
Many people have praised the steps taken by Google after realizing its massive potential in the mobile industry. In fact, some renowned tech pundits have gone ahead to label the Google Pixel and Pixel XL as the “iPhones” made for Android users. The phones have the best hardware specs, the latest, customized Android software, a bunch of exclusive features as well as one of the best, if not the best, cameras in the smartphone industry.
Despite receiving accolades for its impressive camera, the Google Pixel and Pixel XL have also been reported to come with some issues related to the same camera. Some users have reported about cases where the app camera freezes out with purple and pink lines all over the screen. It has also been noted that the Google Pixel camera sometimes freaks out when there is no stable cellular connectivity and others have seen the highly-rated snapper end up producing glitchy images.
Even though some of these issues can be solved by employing simple workarounds, for instance, the cellular connectivity issue can be tackled by switching on Airplane mode, others call for Google’s intervention. The good side of the story is that the search engine giant has acknowledged the Google Pixel camera problem and issued a statement confirming that the team is working on a solution. However, there is no definite date as to when this solution will be available, but Google says it will be coming “soon.”
