PSA: Google is replacing the defective Pixel 3 units with display issue

The launch of Google’s latest flagship devices, the Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL, garnered a lot of media and consumer attention because of all new features like call screen, top shot, and more. The phones are even being offered at a huge $200 discount on Best Buy. However, the Google Pixel 3 phone is now in the news for all the wrong reasons.

Many users have reported issues with the phone’s audio quality, random overheating, and several other bugs. However, the biggest one that’s only recently coming into the fore is the flickering display which experts say can be an issue concerning the ambient display of the phone.
