Google's Pixel 2 XL update should fix the screen burn issues

You can finally use Google Assistant to identify songs

Google releases November Android Security Bulletin and Factory Images with patches

The Pixel 2 can alert you to calls coming from unknown parties. "With a 6" screen it's direct competition with the Galaxy Note 8 and the new iPhone X. That too is getting a fix for November.

All in all, the technical issues have left a nasty stain on what have otherwise been very well-reviewed smartphones. Google is now rolling out this feature for more Android devices by releasing an update for Google Assistant. Do you want something that fits more comfortably in your hand? The casings on the buds themselves are made from metal which extends to the in-line remote and the USB-C connector. It runs Android as Google intended it to be, no special interfaces, icons or bloatware.

At first I wrote off this feature as a gimmick. Again, I'll be covering it with a case anyway. Waking the phone and swiping the screen takes extra steps, and wake phrases can be unreliable, especially in a noisy environment. I'll get this thing fully configured tonight, load it up with my apps and content, and report back again soon. Once you activate it, it will automatically detect the song and you'll see an option which says "Whats this song?".

But the more significant part of the update is a software fix that aims to reduce the chance of screen-burn in the Pixel 2 XL's OLED screen, which a handful of users have reported seeing shortly after using the handset. Previously, the Pixel 2 series had a Vivid Colours toggle that has now been replaced with a Colours menu option that allows you to switch between three options - Natural, Saturated, and the default Boosted option.

Any device equipped with the smart voice activated aide will soon be able to take advantage of the feature, which is similar to the popular Shazam app. Frankly, I don't see it. Ok, I do see what they're talking about. You never plan on dropping your phone in the toilet, it just happens. But, as noted, it doesn't feature a curved display at all. The Google phones this year lack the dual-lens system that many of their contemporaries have. By comparison, the response from squeezing the Pixel 2 is immediate. It seems Google AI is so good that it can produce nice results without the specific hardware that other phones may require. This is particularly true for images clicked in low light. You also get a price that's a little more affordable than the competition.
