By LG Foundry’s Google Pixel 2 XL recently encountered a lot of trouble, in the “Burning Screen” and “color inaccuracy” of the storm has not yet passed, but also exposed the screen oil layer premature reimbursement of the problem. Almost every Android phone in the factory, will be on the screen glass on the oil layer, designed to allow fingerprints and other dirty imprinting can be easily erased. In short, the hydrophobic layer separates the grease from the user’s fingertips from the glass, and allows the water stain to be erased more easily.
As time went by, the oil-bearing layers were worn out, but it was not expected that the Pixel 2 XL’s sparse oil layer would be reimbursed at such a rapid rate. It is reported that some users in just a few weeks after the screen dirty is difficult to clean up the problem.
In the Google Product forum and Reddit, many netizens reported the Pixel 2 XL’s sparse oil layer “too fragile”, “gently rub will fall” problem. Affected by this, those who are temporarily problem-less, also can not help worrying about the long-term use of Pixel 2 XL results.
However, pointed out that the Pixel 2 XL and colleagues have not encountered problems, so this pot or LG to back, after all, in the previous trial run version of LG V30 also briefly encountered similar problems.
Once the oil layer is worn out, it cannot be restored to its original state except for a screen change. A few days ago, Reddit Netizen Joelamosobadiah said that Google had directly given the “Advanced hardware Replacement” treatment, but not everyone is so lucky.
Of course, the problem of the fragile oil layer does not affect the durability of the screen glass, 5 generations of Gorilla Glass scratch performance or slightly wins the previous generation of products lost.
