However, the Pixel 2 XL has been blighted by all manner of problems since its release in November. However, we have now received reports that the Pixel 2 and 2 XL users are facing some battery drain issues and these issues have started to occur since the February security patch update.
The publication put the Google Pixel 2 XL in the freezer until the internal battery temperature was around 16-degree Celsius and they measured the charging speed.
"Hello, because the issue persists even after a factory data reset it could indicate a battery or hardware problem". The users have reported that the smartphone becomes heated up while in the standby mode and also the battery life has been reduced to a noticeable extent. "It's not that the fingerprint scanner works slower because I feel the vibration very fast after I put my finger on the scanner but than it takes really long before the screen actually turns on".More news: Trump takes last spot in experts' presidential rankings survey

The Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL are back in the spotlight with a fresh set of problems, the latest in a series of issues owners have had with the pair. Now, the latest lineup of smartphones from the company was named as the Pixel smartphones and they were marketed heavily as made by Google. That would mean that there shouldn't be such a huge slow down in the charging of the battery powering the Pixel 2XL until the temperature of the battery drops another 10°C.
This new issue came to light after users started reporting issues through Google's Pixel User Community as well as on Reddit. The second issue is that while this slow down is happening, the phone still shows a notification that it is "charging rapidly", which is certainly misleading users. The issue needs to be investigated in-depth by other OEMs as well. We will provide you with the further details as soon as we receive reports from the other end.
