It’s starting to feel like Google should have done a better job of checking their Pixel 2 handsets before releasing them to customers. While it isn’t uncommon for devices to have issues at the start, the newly launched Pixel 2 handsets appear to be encountering more trouble than normal, like clicking sounds, display burn-ins, and now recently audio issues when recording video.

It seems that this is a problem that some Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL users are reporting, although exactly how widespread the problem is remains unknown, but safe to say that there are users who are experiencing it. Android Police has uploaded a recording of running water in which the clip starts out normal, but later it starts getting extremely distorted before resuming normalcy again.

Now the good news for owners of the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL handsets who are encountering this sound issue is that Google is aware of it. The company has been in communication with users on forum asking for feedback, and have confirmed to Android Police that a fix is incoming and should be rolled out over the course of the next few weeks.

Based on this we can only assume that this is a software and not a hardware problem, which is good news since a hardware problem means having to return the phone which can be rather inconvenient.
