Google Pixel 2 smartphones face lagging fingerprint sensor after Android 8.1 update

Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL owners claiming included headphone adapter doesn't work

Pixel 2 users complain about useless headphone jack dongles

Several users took this to the "Pixel User Community" complaining about the headphone adaptors.

Some Pixel 2 XL owners have only expressed their frustration on official forums, while others reported it on Reddit. Google has surprisingly stripped its Pixel lineup of the 3.5 mm headphone jack after heavily advertising its existence on the first Pixel iteration a year ago. This was pointed out by users over at the Google Product Forums (via Android Police), and the issue seems to be that the headphone adapter isn't being recognized: when connected, music still plays through the device speakers. From the screen burn-in issue to a clicking sound in the display and audio crashing in portrait mode, the release of the Pixel 2 duo has been filled with controversies related to quality issues.

The omission of the 3.5 mm headphone jack has been increasing among smartphones as of late. It turns out, the Pixel 2's woes aren't over just yet. If the problem is related to the hardware configuration of the phones, they might recall the phones back in a few days. Users report that rebooting the phone fixes the issue temporarily, while Google has recommended restarting the phones in safe mode to ensure that no other app is interfering. If the issue is still persist, thy are requested to check it by turning on the phone with safe mode. This particular solution works in some cases, but not all. When done correctly, the USB-C adapter should start working properly. It seems that this time they experienced a little bad luck with the newest Android 8.1 Oreo update on Pixel 2 XL. It's possible that the port is wrongfully identifying the headphone jack adapter as a charger which is why it isn't working.
