The Pixel 2's cameras get a little weird when capturing LED lights

Google Pixel Buds review: Fun translation trick anchors full-featured headphones

Google has just released a new update to fix some of the display issues that their Google Pixel 2 users have been experiencing but it looks like it is not the end for them yet. Artem Russakovskii (Android Police) was quick to confirm that it is a Pixel 2 camera issue and the steps suggested earlier won't help.

According to several user accounts, the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL cameras tend to produce flickering and banding when LED lighting is in view. This happened with both video and photo.

According to Google Forums, Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 customers have experienced odd image banding in their photos and videos, taken via front and rear cameras with LED flash. Interestingly, a number of Pixel 2 phone users also chimed in by sharing suggestions on how to fix the problem including clearing the cache of the camera app, rebooting the device in Safe mode, or resetting the device to factory version.

The same YouTuber also made a video comparing the Pixel 2 with the original Pixel and it's clear the 1st generation Pixel isn't susceptible to the problem. Having said that, there's a dedicated discussion thread regarding this on the official Pixel forum, and the problem has been escalated to the concerned team.
