Google Pixel Smartphone users start complaining about LTE connectivity issues

Google Pixel and Pixel XL are among the most desired smartphones in the market thanks to their exclusive features ranging from Pixel Launcher to Google Assistant. If you are planning on getting a Google Pixel or Pixel XL, we recommend you hold off a little longer. Some Google Pixel and Pixel XL have reported that they encounter issues with the LTE band 4’s connectivity.


According to sources, the issues are limited to specific networks in North and South America where users mostly reply on LTE band 4 for connectivity. It is still unclear what causes this issue, but experts say that it may be due to a software issue that blocks the radio frequencies on Google Pixel and Pixel XL.

Google seems to be aware of the problem, and the Company is still working on a fix that is expected to feature in the upcoming update. However, some users have suggested a workaround users can use to fix the issue temporarily. You can follow the steps below

Step one: Head to the Settings app and select Cellular Network

Step two: Select GSM in the Preferred Network Type section and select LTE again.

This is not the first time we have heard reports of issues users have been facing with their Google Pixel and Pixel XL. Last month, owners of Google’s new phones were reportedly experiencing issues with Bluetooth. Accordingly, they could not pair their phone to their vehicle or stay connected after pairing. Google is believed to be working on it and may launch an update to fix the issue soon.

Google Pixel and Pixel XL were first introduced last month. The new pair are the first ever smartphones designed by Google itself, allowing it to customize its OS and develop its own features. Google Pixel and Pixel XL serve as Google’s strategic plan to challenge top-tier smartphones in the market including Apple iPhone or Samsung Galaxy S7/S7 Edge. The pair includes premium design and excellent camera performance that support better photo capture in low-light conditions.
