Oh no. Just when it looked that the everlasting stream of Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL upshots had come to an edge; yet another trouble has arisen for Google. This time users are reporting that their new Pixel 2 phones are rebooting at random. In short, Pixel 2 reboot issue has emerged this time.

Technically this is a long-standing issue that has been bothering some devices since launch. XDA-Developers and Google Pixel product forum posts reporting occasional reboots date back to late October; this means Pixel 2 reboot issue is not something new.

Those afflicted seem to have tried everything from cleaning their phones with a factory reset setting and reviewing for any malicious third-party apps in Safe Mode. One user even resets his device; decided to not install any apps, made a few adjustments as feasibly possible to the standard set-up and still faced the problem while inconstantly typing out an email.

What Can Be the Reason?

Thanks to the detective work of user Nader Babbili; however, we now know that the plausible culprit is critical bug dwelling in the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL’s LTE modem; that’s causing Pixel 2 reboot issue.
Babbili suspected this might be the case after discerning; that reboots only tend to happen when entering a low signal area where LTE signal is inconsistent. After changing the preferred network type to 3G only; the user noticed that the reboots ceased completely.

Not appeased with his work; Babbili supposedly obtained access to a local Wilson Cell Amplifier and discovered; that turning it off also arose the tide of reboots, even with LTE active on the phone.
It’s unclear what exactly makes the Pixel 2’s modem meltdown; but we do know that Google hasn’t yet fixed this Pixel 2 reboot issue. Users running Android 8.1 Oreo are still reporting; that reboots happen randomly after the update; as did several users who received replacement devices.

Hopefully, a speedy software update can fix the issue once and for all as completely disabling LTE permanently is far from an acceptable solution. In the meantime; let us know if you’ve encountered reboots on your Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL devices in the comments below.
