Google still hasn't fixed Pixel XL's overcharging problem

Google offers $200 in statement credits for purchase of Pixel 2 XL                   By Ida Torres

The best example for that has to be the Google Pixel XL, which has been plagued by issues ever since its inception in late 2016.

The promotion for the discount on the Google Pixel 2 XL comes from the Google Store, and provides both a $200 refund and a free 18W USB-C charger - both of which combine to make a great promotion for those looking to upgrade to the latest flagship from this relative newcomer to the smartphone scene.

To get the free charger, just add it to your shopping cart alongside either handset before checking out of the Google Play Store. After it got the Android 8.1 update, some users on Reddit have reported their Pixel XL was overcharging, taking more power than it normally should. Whether you can open an account or not is contingent on credit approval. Offer valid starting March 18, 2018 at 12am PT and purchases must post to your account by 11:59pm PT on March 31, 2018. Only one statement credit per account. "Void where prohibited", Google states in its terms and conditions.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Date Nights Sound a Lot Like Ours
However, the Daily Mail reports the 33-year-old royal has decided not to sign prenuptial agreement with his bride-to-be. We will certainly be hosting a movie night when Harry and Meghan: A Royal Romance is released.

Hopefully, they will be able to resolve it soon before any untoward incident happens, as there are still a lot of Pixel XL users even though the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have already been out in the market for a few months already. That's a $200 discount that will show up within a couple of months on your bill to help reduce the cost of the phone. However, unlike most other stores, you'll see an $200 statement credit after just two billing cycles - a rebate much faster than you'd see from deals from most cell service providers.

The deal offered by the Google Store for the Pixel 2 XL will give customers $200 back from the $850 price tag of the 64 GB model of the smartphone.
