*******Temporary fix - Turn off NFC******* Please still report this to google using the feedback option inside settings and about phone. *********
I received my Pixel 2 white version and have experienced clicking during phone calls. I have rebooted into safe mode, turned off wifi, bluetooth, always on listening and still experience it.
My wife got a pixel 2 as well and it does not exhibit the clicking sound.
Both phones have a high pitch frequency noise while in phone calls regardless if it is wifi or carrier signal.
I have contacted google support and they have not had any reported issues. Please post here if you have experienced high frequency noise and/or clicking. Here is a reviewer that experienced the clicking as well.
Anyone have advice on diagnosing it?
I ordered both phones from google and use them on T-Mobile.
***Clicking occurs outside of phone calls only when screen is on and unlocked. I have also tried safe mode in addition to airplane mode.***
These are the instructions Google Support gave me.
We only have the 2 options to get you another device. We can do what we call Advanced Replacement. With this, I send you labels for the original phone and a link to order the replacement. We don't charge you, but there is an authorization hold placed on your payment method until we receive the original phone. This lets you keep using the phone you have while you wait and is usually the faster option.
We also have the option for a Standard Exchange. With this, you send the bad phone back first and when it reaches our warehouse, a replacement is shipped out. This way typically takes 5-10 business days and requires no authorization hold, but you are without the phone during that time.
Mods, can you change the title to "High-frequency noise & clicking when screen is on and unlocked RMA"
