Every smartphone, even flagship ones, can be susceptible to bugs, quality control issues, hardware malfunctions, you name it. Criticism regarding the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL has been considerably harsh over the past couple of weeks, some of it being wholly justified and others teetering on the edge of a witch-hunt.

One of our forum users recently created a thread to report that they were having troubles with the Bluetooth connectivity on their Pixel 2, and shortly after this, a number of other members chimed in with similar complaints.

Here's what's been reported so far.

I have a 2014 Camry. Paired Pixel 2 just fine, but track information would not show, steering wheel controls would work about 30% of the time and then after a few presses, everything would lock up and I would have to disable/enable bluetooth to get this to work again. Sometimes I would not be able to start playback at all. Tried safe mode, reset all BT connections on the car - no difference....
