Static photography in the Pixel series is a highlight of the machine, thanks to Google’s powerful software algorithms, the Pixel 2, Pixel 3, Pixel 3a series and other models can still take excellent photos even with only one camera. However, some Pixel 2 users have recently reported bugs in their cameras.
February 4, according tomedia reports, some Pixel 2 users on Reddit, Pixel Phone and other forums reported that the Pixel 2 camera will crash when turned on (front camera can be used normally).
Users point out that putting the Pixel 2 in safe mode or factory reset still does nun, which may be related to the security update Google pushed in December 2019, or to the Pixel 2’s sensor hardware.
If it’s a hardware issue, Pixel 2 users may be disappointed. The Pixel series has now been updated to the fourth generation (Pixel 4, Pixel 4 XL), and most of the affected Pixel 2s are out of warranty.
One Pixel 2 user said Google could offer paid repairs for $180 (about 1,263 yuan).
