Google Pixel 3 XL Users Report Extra Display Notch Bug

Google Pixel 3 XL Display Notch Bug

The Google Pixel 3 XL was launched earlier this month, adopting a display notch that looks like that of the iPhone X. As with many of the other phones featuring the notch, the Pixel 3 XL was welcomed with mixed reactions. While some phone users like the display notch, many others have been expressing outrage at it.

As if one notch was not enough, some users of the Pixel 3 XL are now reporting a bug which adds a second display notch on their devices. This notch appears on the top right edge of the screen. It looks like the physical notch present at the top of this display.

Many users took to Reddit and UrAvgConsumer to report the issue. Some of these users claim that the second notch disappears after they restart their phones or make some adjustments in the developer settings.

The true nature of this bug is not known. However, some of the users claim that the glitch is a result of the phone’s confusion in interpreting orientation. This explanation may not be entirely valid, but what other explanation is valid? Google has already acknowledged the issue and will likely release a fix for it soon.

This is not the first issue that users have reported about the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL. Some users have been complaining of poor audio quality while recording videos. Google has responded to this as well. Some users also claim that the phones have a major memory management issue, and that photos do not save automatically. There’s more, some users say they experience a static, buzzing sound when listening to audio on the Pixel 3 XL.

All in all, the Pixel 3 XL is still an amazing device and users are pretty much enjoying it, regardless of the issues and bugs.
