Third Time's a Charm: Few users again on the same Pixel community have reported that the Pixel 2 XL produces high pitch frequency sound and clicking sometimes when the screen is on or while talking on the phone.

Google Pixel 2 XL has been going through some problems since it has been released and the latest one being the slow charging of the device. Google is yet to acknowledge the issue but we can expect some sort of software patch to fix the issue.

While Google's name is utterly tarnished by the terrible PR brought about by the Pixel 2 handsets, fault does similarly lie with Pixel 2 XL manufacturer, LG.

Just to be clear, the oleophobic coating is expected to last years before showing the kind of problems that the affected Pixel 2 XL owners have experienced. As such, the fact that mics on the Pixel 2, Galaxy S8, and Note 8 mysteriously aren't working has got a lot of customers quite irritated - and rightly so.

Meanwhile, some Pixel 2 XL users have noticed a new issue. Google has always passed production tasks to an OEM and for the Pixel 2, the production duty is passed to LG. Some are even experiencing the issue when turning on the Pixel 2 XL from a fully powered-down state.

Mauricio Pochettino: 'Jose Mourinho fallout in the past'
He'd show me clips of my games and say, "You should do this better". " Luke Shaw was just honest. We'll take the best decision for the team". "He made me feel that I was the best".

Some Pixel 2 owners have reported unresponsive microphones during calls or while using voice assistant.

It doesn't happen on the Pixel 2 but only on the bigger variant. Still, some users are reporting that Zerid's method worked for them, so while it isn't a long-term solution, it could help as you wait for an RMA replacement from Google. This could still be a hardware related issue that's directly tied to Android Oreo.

Apparently, blowing into your bottom speaker as you would an old NES cartridge (or really any video game cartridge) made Zeird's microphone work again.

Interestingly, users have added that blowing into the front speaker when the microphone is working causes it to fail again. This doesn't happen all the time.
