Google is now replacing Pixel, Pixel 2 devices with microphone issues

Google Pixel smartphones have faced multiple issues one after another, starting with the burn-in on the display panel, screen flash when the phone is unlocked, faulty headphone adapter, unresponsive edges and buzzing sound during calls. Some of these issues were caused due to software bugs, for which, Google has already rolled out patches via OTA updates but some of them are hardware issues which can’t be fixed via a software update.

Recently, some of the Google Pixel reported that their microphone is not working properly during calls. The users had to switch to the loudspeaker to listen to the calls. Google is now arranging the replacement of the Pixel smartphones that have been affected with this issue and the user has to apply for this replacement.
