An increasing number of Pixel 3 more Pixel 3 XL users have complaints about the battery of these phones. No, the problem has nothing to do with the battery life that users are squeezing 2915mAh and 3430mAh components respectively. The problem has to do with the inflammation of these batteries; Since May, there have been many posts and photos about bloated batteries In the Google Help Forum and Reddit. The photographs show that the swelling is so severe in some cases that it pushes and closes the back panel of the phone.
Some users did not even notice that their battery looked pregnant because the damage was being hidden by a case. Others only knew that a problem existed because they were unable to charge wirelessly. One The Pixel 4 XL user stated that he was having problems charging wirelessly and came to the conclusion that his pixel stand was defective. Google changed the stand but to no avail. It wasn’t until the user realized that he had a wife The Galaxy S10 charged the Pixel stand without a problem, leading it to conclude that the problem was with his phone.
The author of a Reddit post, Dgecko2000, arranged for him to get a replacement From Pixel 4 XL Verizon. But less than a year after the phone’s launch, Verizon went out of stock and is sending it to A. Samsung Galaxy S10 + instead. This left Dgecko2000 wondering if a bloated battery issue was responsible for the Pixel 4 series’ early closure. As he writes, “I’m beginning to suspect that this battery swell issue may be bigger than this Google is currently accepting, and that’s why they stopped it all of a sudden … I’m wondering if my phone’s wireless charging issue could also be a symptom. Upon closer inspection, the top rear corners appear to be “scorched” on the black rim, where it meets the rear glass … those 2 corners also appear to be slightly raised, but it’s hard to tell. “

If you turn to Google for device replacement instead of your carrier, you may get more success. It appears that even if your damaged Pixel unit is out of warranty, Google is ready to send you a refurbished model. However, the company is telling customers that replacement is only a one-time thing. In other words, if you have a replacement problem from Google after a year or two, then do not focus on getting another replacement model from the company.
