One of the most hotly anticipated smartphones of the entire year well known Google Pixel is packed with specs which were specific only to Google the entire front of the pixel smartphone is covered with Gorilla Glass for making it very resistant to scratches drops and just general wear and tear it’s fairly comfortable to grip and it feels premium but it wouldn’t have as much character or design Flair as S7 Edge and with an 8.5-millimeter thickness its a little bit on the chunky side it’s heavier than expected and the edges aren’t quite curved enough for it to fit perfectly on hand
Even though it only has a 5-inch display which is considered probably slightly on the small side considering today’s flagships it actually has a poor screen to body ratio of 69% which means that even when you’re holding it with one hand it’s still tough to reach the top corner when the phone was announced a lot of people complained that it looked a little bit too much like a toy. Well, these are some of the highlights of Google Pixel you can see Full Spec sheet of Google pixel here.
Every smartphone made today constantly being checked to fix bugs but by the time these minor issues become difficult to fix, the pixel is an electronic device usually run simultaneously by hardware and Software(Android) in most of the cases when the phone won’t turn on and just show black screen it points towards Hardware, but who knows the true or false, User must first run the troubleshooting guide for finding the exact reason behind the problem.
1.First of all Check for Soft Crash
By soft issue means related to Android or Firmware, in Old times when computers are slow and GUI software were newly developed they always tend to crash and we need to pull off the power and restart all the way up again. These type of problems still exists often a common cause of these failures and frozen screens. To make sure that it is a problem related to the software or Hardware you need to force restart the phone.
As there is no mechanism in Google pixel to remove the cover and pull out the battery to force restart, you need to follow this method. Just press the power button for Ten Seconds and keep eye on the screen. If it restarts with no black screen and without froze up than hurdle is clear. If screen gives warning about battery plug the phone to charge. Otherwise, it is a problem related to physical damage or water damage.
2. Take off third Party Material from Phone
Sometimes a manufacturer produces accessories just for that phone which usually called OEM(Original Equipment Manufacturer) using third-party chargers, headphones, wireless chargers, screen protectors, covers could possibly damage the phone. for example, using high amps rated chargers, or short wires can freeze the phone. Remove any kind of protectors from the screen because chances are screen protector could block the sensors that are necessary for the phone to work properly. Also, remove cover especially hard ones as they halt the phone mechanism of cooling itself and blocks the heat dissipation.
