    Based on the amount of blue I am not interested in trying. I cant believe they think this is acceptable and actually left the factory.

    How does one become so upset over a blue tint in the screen when it's held at a certain angle that they return their device? I also notice blue tint at an extreme angle. Do I read my phone like that..? No. Is the blue tint viewable from straight on? No. To reach their own.. I wouldn't give up this camera and fluidity for anything though. I do miss the headphone jack...

    It's common knowledge these displays vary with their blue intensity. Mine turned blue as soon as you shift the screen slightly and was bad.

    How do I use my phone? All day long at an angle as it sits on my desk, not everyone looks at their phone straight on.

    After a couple months on the pixel 2, I find the oversaturated colors of other manufacturers unacceptable , Natural for me

    I guess the issue must have been pretty severe in some models. Mine is noticeable, but not a deal breaker. Straight away I grabbed my girlfriend's iPhone and tilted it the same angle as mine and both had the blue tint. What are you replacing with?

    I have a iPhone 6s and a Note 5. The Note 5 does have a shift but it is very minor and livable. iPhone being LCD is all good.

    I agree with everything you said except for missing the headphone jack. Santa brought me a wireless noise canceling Sony WH-1000XM2 headset. Now I have freedom from wires and great sound.

    Hey OP, I'm with you on this one. My 2 XL had bad blue tint and I just kept telling myself I'd get used to it but I personally use my phone on a slight angle a lot as it sits on my desk often. It became blue instantly any % off straight on. I thought they were all like this then I saw my co-workers. His could go much further off angle than mine and was nowhere near severe as mine. I got a real dud.

    I don't notice any worse off-axis blue shifting on my Pixel 2 XL than I did on the iPhone X or S8 Active. I heard some are duds, which sucks. Getting a good display shouldn't be like playing the lottery.

    My regular Pixel 2 exhibits it a bit as well, which is strange. But it's not major.

    So like you said it is like a lottery or better yet a gamble. Why would a $850 phone leave the factory with so many displays this bad is my question. As much as I love the software on Pixel one I had, I won't give Google my money for the Pixel 2.

    It had been rumored Google might have been offering devices with less blue tint on the latest devices. This was what encouraged me to buy one.

    The reason for a new thread was to point out there is still a problem. To bury a post on another thread would not have been a great way to deliver the message.

    This is mine exactly... I dont get it. I also dont look at my phone that way. But maybe theirs are worse.

    There is definitely variance in the shift. I compared mine to display models and friends models before ultimately returning mine for good after going 0 for 2. I compared it next to my iPhone X and saw little to no shift in my X and the 2 Pixel 2 XLs I had would go from awesome to BLUE in a matter of a few degrees.

    I have those exact headphones. I love them. However I sleep with ear buds in. I only have wired ear buds.

    Got those for Christmas as well. 20% off.

    Fantastic pair. Love them.

    Also, yikes! I was sure current batches wouldn't be so bad but it seems some substandard displays are still leaving the factory.

    I was in a store this week and there was a Google Pixel 2 XL on display. We could hear the "buzzing" sound from 3 feet away... and it's not a buzzing, it sounds like a circular saw going through a piece of wood. I can't believe how much Google botched their QA... very sad.

    Non issue for me as well. I was really concerned about it at the store but haven't noticed it since.

    Having seen the variation with blue shift I'd suggest trying to get it replaced. I had 2 pandas that had very noticeable shift that I was not happy to live with, my 3rd try (a black one) still has it but is much better and not intrusive day to day. I was prompted to keep trying as the display units all looked better so I knew there must be good ones out there!

    These are OLEDs after all

    Honestly after a few weeks with it I usually don't notice it anymore. Not an issue for me.

    I typically stare at the screen straight on so I don't notice it. I remember its there when I'm reminded of it. I do wish it wasn't there though.
