A strange bug seems to have cropped up in the new Google Pixel 3 XL smartphones launched recently. According to posts on social media and other online forums, the issue appears to be with the camera sections where pictures taken using the camera can’t be stored/saved in the photo gallery. The image once clicked, shows up as a small icon. However, the moment the user gets out of the app and does some other activity with the phone can comes back to the images, the photo taken earlier vanishes.
Though there are sporadic complaints of a similar nature it does not appear to be will all the devices out there. Some are facing and have reported. There different versions of the issue, some arguing it could be an Android issue while others claim if one switches off the HDR mode in the phone, then this issue does not exist.
Interestingly, Google is yet to react to these complaints. Users of both Google Pixel 3 and 3XL seem to be facing the bug. But some who faced the issue say it does not happen all the time but once in a while. Some have said they had faced this issue with the predecessor Pixel 2XL as well. One user who mentioned that it could be a problem with Android and Google says that is because his other phones like Blackberry and Essential too had displayed this trouble.
Apart from the camera related issue one more anomaly in the new Google Pixel 3 and 3XL has been pointed out. This has to do with the speakers on the phone and it is said the speakers are producing uneven sounds. As is known, the phone has a dual speaker system on the front and one speaker is on top and the other at the bottom. It appears they are not delivering matching audio but there is a variance, which could be disturbing while listening to music or watching videos.
