Google Pixel 2 photos/videos display major banding with LED lights around

Adjust Comment Print

It seems issues with the Pixel 2 devices will keep coming up. Most of the bugs in the past had to do with the phone's display, but now there's a new bug which is making the rounds and this one has got to do with Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL camera.

Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 customers have experienced unusual image banding in their photos and videos both taken via front and rear cameras under LED lighting. Interestingly, a number of Pixel 2 phone users also chimed in by sharing suggestions on how to fix the problem including clearing the cache of the camera app, rebooting the device in Safe mode, or resetting the device to factory version.

That being said we should point out that this isn't exactly a new phenomenon as LED and fluorescent lights do flicker, although they tend to flicker at the frequency of the power supply and generally speaking, our eyes do not notice it.

As we can see Google will be releasing an over the air update to address the problem, the company has not revealed as yet when the update will be released. If you watch the video above, you can gain an idea of what this looks like. Google has responded to the complains and announce that a software fix for the issue will be released soon but before that happens, fans will have to make do with the buggy display for the time being. In any case you can check out the problem for yourself in the video above.
