The thing to note here is that the "screen flashing" is not an isolated issue and a number of users joined to comment about the problem on Pixel User Community on Google Product forums. Blowing into the speaker like you would an old NES cartridge. Still, if that's no issue for you and you don't mind the Pixel 2's bezels or the Pixel 2 XL's problems, head on over to Verizon to grab either one by using the Source links below. "I believe this is a hardware issue unfortunately - or at least in my case". Apparently, there is a fix that might bring the microphone back to work. When we tested for the issue, for the most part Google Assistant seemed to be working fine (i.e. Google Assistant could be activated via the hotword, questions could be asked, and responses were received - all through the headset).

Google is aware of the problem but it hasn't yet discussed a timescale for a fix. I was able to replicate the issue by blowing into the bottom speaker. Yes. Additionally, some Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL users are reporting problems with their handsets' microphone. One of the users wrote on the forum, "I am not sure why, but the Pixel 2 XL screen flashes when unlocking (fingerprint and lock button), when the screen wakes up because of notifications, when the screen dims and the phone locks, and when manually locking". Users have posted videos showing a bright white or greenish flash that seems to confirm the issue. The user also posted a video saying that it doesn't happen every time, but first noticed the issue immediately after purchasing the device.

Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and Breath of the Wild DLCs Announced
Xenoblade Chronicles 2 will launch exclusively for the Nintendo Switch system on December 1 at a suggested retail price of $59.99. Gamers can pre-order the physical or digital versions of the game bundled with or without the expansion pass.

The main caveat here is that you need to buy the Pixel you want with a device installment plan and keep that for its two-year duration in order to actually benefit from the deal. According to Google, it will provide you a 24 hours of listening time on a single charge.
