Did this iPhone X warning come thanks to Google?

Over the weekend, iPhone X support documents revealed a bit of a warning about the newest phone in Apple's collection.

Samsung ad flaunts screen superiority in Pixel 2 XL’s face

Samsung ad flaunts screen superiority in Pixel 2 XL’s face

A big part of advertisements is what you say and how you say it. Just as important, however, is when you say it. They say timing is everything, and that definitely applies when trying to catch the window of opportunity or when hitting their frenemies when they’re down. Google just experienced a pretty big setback over the display of the Pixel 2 XL, a P-OLED panel made by LG. Unsurprisingly, Samsung has just come out with a series of video cuts that boast about how great its screens are, making the unsaid implication that they’re definitely better than the Pixel 2 XL’s.

Pixel 2 XL screen blue shift : Why didn’t Google show us this?

Today the mystery behind the "blue shift" in the Google Pixel 2 XL seems to have been solved. The color space is a much deeper subject, the likes of which could easily fill its own set of articles - but that blue? It's quite simple, as it turns out.

Third model Pixel 2 appears amid XL LG display troubles

It would seem fitting that this week another HTC-made Pixel 2 XL device would be found. This, a week in which the LG-made Google Pixel 2 XL (already out in the wild - see link below) is the subject of display-based controversy.

Pixel 2 XL may get a color-improving update

Pixel 2 XL may get a color-improving update

There is very difference between the Pixel 2 and the larger Pixel 2 XL, but where they do differ, the difference is nearly staggering. Size is one and battery is another. But the most telling difference is really their screens. Although more pixel dense and prettier with its lack of bezels, the Pixel 2 XL’s P-OLED screen suffers from one odd flaw: its color quality. It seems that Google has been made aware of that substandard behavior and is mulling over pushing an update that will at least give users the option to tweak things to their taste.

As iPhone 8 notch nears, Sharp makes its odd display pitch

The iPhone 8 may have its notch, and the Essential Phone its front camera cut-out, but Sharp is exploring some seriously unusual shapes for its latest panels. The company brought its latest IGZO free-form displays along to IFA 2017 to demonstrate that, at this point, square is pretty passé.
