Some early Pixel 6 buyers report screen issues: weird flickering, green tint, a second punch hole


Google is not the best when it comes to quality control of hardware. Previous generations of Pixel phones typically developed some kind of malady and the 6-series is no exception. Here are a few issues reported by new owners.

One Pixel 6 Pro that drew attention exhibited a weird issue when powered off – pressing the Power button would cause the screen to flicker. Here’s what it looks like on video:

Another issue that cropped up is a green tint on the display of a Pixel 6. It’s not an uncommon issue with OLED panels, many brands have experienced it, Google included (on the Pixel 4 XL and 5a previously).

Some early Pixel 6 and 6 Pro buyers report screen issues: weird flickering, green tint and a second punch hole

Perhaps the most bizarre issue was a Pixel 6 Pro with a second punch hole in the screen that overlapped with the first. Check out the video below. The owner reports that this really appears to be a hole rather than a patch of dead pixels. This story has a happy ending, though, as the store replaced the defective phone.

Today is only the first day that Google 6 units are shipping (officially at least, a few went out early), so it’s hard to tell if these are weird one-off issues or something more common. Still, not a great look on $600/$900 flagships.
