Report everywhere especially when it rains it pours, as Google's Pixel smartphones seem to be affected by many minor issues, be it hardware or software related. Some of you might remember that we've reported earlier this month about the fact that some Pixel XL owners have found manufacturing defects in their phones.
Now it looks like Pixel owners report another issue that might not be related to the manufacturing of the phone. It appears that some Pixel/Pixel XL units are losing LTE signal when they use a Band 4.
Some even go as far as to say that they have never been able to achieve LTE signal when connected to a certain network and band.
For the time being, most of the reports state that some Pixel and Pixel XL smartphones have trouble remaining connected to the Band 4, also known as AWS.
However, the problem doesn't seem to affect all phones that are using this specific band, which makes us believe that it's not as widespread as it might seem at first glance.
Google's support website is full of these reports as many Pixel/Pixel XL owners have been affected by this connectivity issue, so rest assured that Google has already acknowledged the problem and is likely to offer a fix very soon.
“I am using my Pixel XL on Claro PR network, and I've never seen LTE connection on the signal notification bar. I've checked device compatibility with the network and everything checks out. I've tried Network Reset, verified APN, verified Preffered Network. I've also tried it with a different SIM and same issue. Please advice,” explains one of the people affected by the LTE signal issue.
It's also worth mentioning that these reports come from people who are using Pixel phones outside of the United States, although they were bought from this country.
We're not sure if that counts for something, but many of the reports claim the Pixel phones have issues connecting to carriers' networks in South America.
