Oh I definitely agree that it's not the best idea but Google has invested in LG displays and Apple going to probably use up majority Samsung OLED for it's iPhones. If LG doesn't step up Google is going to use them anyway but this time most likely with stricter tolerance levels. I don't have problem with my Pixel 2 XL as well but it's not the best compared to my iPhone X or when I used the S9+. It comes down to how much Google is working with LG to make sure it gets the display right this time. I'm pretty sure it'll be way better than Pixel 2 XL but by how much we have to see.
Yeah it'll be interesting to see what happens this year with the Pixel 3 screens. If Google will stick with LG, how much better will the screens be this year.
Samsung I'm guessing would be flat out supplying displays for their own Galaxy line of phones and for iPhones, so I don't think we'll see Google move to Samsung for their displays. I don't know if Samsung would have the capacity to supply more displays to other companies, unless it's not their newest, flagship screen.
I'm leaning towards Google sticking with LG again. I'm just hoping the screen this year is a substantial improvment.
Let's not kid ourselves....there are issues
with the current Samsung display as well ...on the Pixel 2 and the S9
Yeah, but compared to the number of issues on the Pixel 2 XL screen, it's not even close. I mean looking at a Pixel 2 XL screen to a Galaxy S8 or S9 screen side by side, you can tell immediately the P2XL screen is inferior quality. That's just a visual take, then when you look into it, you get the grain, black smear, black crush, blue tint, low brightness, poor image retention/possible early burn in etc. I mean, imo, it's just not an acceptable screen to be in a high-end flagship priced as high as it is.
LG need to step up, or Google needs to stop accepting low grade parts and move to someone else.
