    Just saw this earlier and was wondering how widespread it might be. Anyone having this issue?

    No issues here. I read that article yesterday. I haven't seen any other posts anywhere about this issue, just the Reddit post linked in that article.

    Yeah, I’m not having the problem but was just wondering if any others were. It seemed somewhat widespread, also reported on Android Authority. Glad all is well here. Hoping it doesn’t turn into some type of battery gate issue for Google or P4 owners.

    haven't had any issues although I've had a case on it since day one. I'm wondering if I should remove the case just to check.

    If it's swelling you would probably feel it through the case, it would be pushing everything outward

    Do you think so? It's a pretty thick case. But you might be right. I think I just panicked a little when I read the article lol

    I would check anyway. Just to be safe. Swelling batteries can explode. Not sure how serious this issue could be but they could continue to get worse and the one in the picture with the back starting to peel off probably wouldn’t show up if it was in a case.
    From what I’ve seen when a battery starts to swell it doesn’t reverse itself it only gets worse.

    I just checked and the phone looks perfectly fine. Maybe I should just check it every once in awhile.

    Right, phone arena and android authority. Also eluding to the possibility this could possibly become an issue for google if it blows up even bigger. No pun intended.
    U break I fix was quoted as saying the pixel 4xl is the hardest pixel to have to repair. Saying they lose money on them because of the time involved. People calling into google to complain about swollen backsides on their pixels were being referred to U break I fix.

    pixel 4 XL. no swelling however my battery will not show a charge beyond/below 50%. there was also a time where if I didn't place it down extremely gently it would turn off though that seems to have passed.
