Whenever a new Pixel phone comes out, there tends to be a rush of drama regarding various issues and bugs plaguing the devices. From poor displays, buzzing speakers, bad RAM management, etc., these can push some users to return their phone and start off from scratch.

Taking a look at the AC forums, it would appear that a lot of our users have had to return a Pixel phone at one point or another.

Here's what they have to say.


Only had to return the first Pixel 2xl after a few months due to various screen issues. The replacement was pristine and came with a new 2 year warranty. Haven't had any problems over last 8 months.


Had to replace my pixel 3xl do to not reading sim , been flawless ever since.


I returned one 2xl. It had squeeze issues (Assistant would start up randomly on its own). Replacement is what I'm using today and I've had it for a year and a half without issues.


I'm on my 4th unit. First unit failed withing the 1 year mark and it seems like every couple months something else fails.


What about you? Have you ever had to return one of Google's Pixel phones?
