The pixel series of Google has popularity because of sleek Android capabilities, refined camera experience, and unique software features. However, pixels have a fair share of difficulties, and certain Pixel 4 XL customers had one of the most notable concerns. Now, Google has discreetly revealed (h/t: 9to5Google) that the Pixel 4 XL user with battery and power problems would have a one-year warranty extension. The specific issues addressed are:
- Cannot switch the phone on
- Without a manual restart or shutdown, the phone restarts or shuts down
- Charge of an adapter
- Wireless charging not working
- Drainage of the phone considerably faster than before
But not all markets get a one-year extension, as Google states only for Canada, Japan, Singapore, Taiwan, and the U.S.
“The repair program does not apply to Pixel 4 XLs bought in Australia, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Spain, or the UK, where eligible devices will be processed as part of their normal two-year manufacturer’s warranty,” Google elaborated.
Google warns that any damage that prohibits Google from resolving the above power concerns such as a broken screen will have to be fixed. It also states that the correction of this harm may require a fee.
