Few Google Pixel 2 XL shipped without Operating System installed

Android operating system on board.

Pixel 2 XL, the much-awaited smartphone from Google has received mixed reviews after it finally arrived in the market. "The device will not start." message right out of the box, which is more than enough to ruin anyone's day. Upon turning on the device I was greeted with a black screen stating, "Can't find valid operating system". So, it's not clear if the Android operating system has been gravely tampered with in the factory or it's missing at all.

It is worth noting that Google Pixel 2 XL is not a budget smartphone which has a price tag of $ 849.

That's not an isolated case, though.

Though no confirmation has come about the authenticity of the claim, the user has claimed on the site that not only is Google going to replace the device, but they have also gifted him a Google Play gift card.

Let's hope that neither Google nor future Pixel 2 XL adopters will have to deal with a similar issue, though it's worrying that these mishaps happened in the first place.

Few other problems that also emerged on the recently launched device were the clicking sound the device made, the screen burn-in and the quality control test failure.
