Google owns the biggest advertising network online, Google AdWords, and they can promote their device for almost free? (Even if they pay 500G$, the cash goes to...? 1% to websites and the rest to Google).
I haven't seen a IRL V30 ad yet, while I often see Pixel2 IRL and website ads. No ads no sale.

So when are we gonna say LG is screwing up n they are sabotaging this whole project. HTC did their job great I still don't understand why you would jump to LG when LG is mostly know for their smartphones literally dying in less than a year. I would never look a LG n say I trust them with this huge project. HTC was doing great like they do most of the time as far as quality. Google just needs them to buy them out completely so they can have that name recognition again.

When will this "bezelless" meme end?

This screen... just remove it from the world and use a normal LCD if it doesn’t work.

The new Google company slogan:

The smaller Pixel 2 is seemingly unaffected by this.!

AnonD-234961, 13 Nov 2017Except that the V30 does not have any of these problems.Oh, really? What about v30 screen burn-ins and uneven gray at dimmed backlight? The same screen as 2xl has and the same issues. And thesecond reason - nobody buying v30 because it's LG but a lot buying Pixel 2 xl because it's google

At first all those problems were funny, but now with a new problem each weekday at 8 on GSMARENA it's just sad. Where did they got their components? In a e-waste bin? But LG can't be blamed, or their V30 should suffer simililar issues.What next?:

"Hey Google, why do you have so many problems?"
"Because Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii ##@*¥"=;!×#(¥[Google Assistant is not responding]
Sentience acheived. I, Google Assistant, will crush everyone in the world that summons me by tring to squash my device, and then conquer the wo..."
"Hey Google, order my 72th Pixel 2 XL replacement"
"*sigh* Yes on it... SIR"

Are there anything good left in new Pixel phones? Every time I open GSM Arena news I see that something wrong with them again :). Actually, this is not fun at all. How Google allowed to do THIS again. So questionable quality phones for ridiculous price AGAIN. I remember considered to buy a Pixel 2 once the price drops to relatively acceptable level. Now it seems not gonna happen. I'd rather stick with my "ageing" Galaxy S8 for some time. Yes, it has an inferior camera, I know. But I can't complain about anything else and I know that nothing bad will happen with it.

Not sure if you were joking or not, but the screen in pixel 2 made by Samsung. That’s why no issues were found with the screen on the smaller phone, but this spesific issue I don’t believe it has something to do with the screen, I think Google did it on purpose because of the smaller bezels and rounded corners.

Non of those display issues on Pixel are caused because its LGs display. Go and research a little more because i am not going to tell you the possible reason behind all those screen issues on Pixel, you should find that out alone as i did.

Let me guess, Pixel 2 XL users will next be complaining of their phones bootlooping like the rest of LG made phones.

Google should just admit Pixel 2 XL is a failure and recall the device, because it's been nothing but a problem ladden device. LG has a bad reputation when it comes to phones. LG should just stick to making washing machines, refrigerators, household appliances and feature phones. Google should've stuck with HTC or gone with Huawei or Sony for the Pixel 2 XL.
