The Pixel 2 XL just can’t seem to catch a break. It has been hounded with this or that issue related to its screen. And now there’s a new cause for concern among owners, though this time it isn’t alone. Both the Pixel 2 XL but more prominently the smaller Pixel 2 have been reported to be emitting an odd high-pitched or crackling sound from the earpiece speaker. And while a temporary workaround seems to have been discovered, it doesn’t exactly inspire confidence in the overall quality of Google’s second gen smartphones.
