It’s from being in a low signal area and LTE – for example when I’m at home on wifi it rarely happens, once I leave my wifi area (low signal area, LTE comes and goes) reboots happen constantly . . . So I went into Settings -> Network and Internet -> Mobile Network and change Preferred network type to only use 3G = NO MORE REBOOTS! Can someone else please confirm this? Obviously leaving LTE off is not feasible, but hopefully, it points Google in the right direction for fixing this . . . . .
I’ve narrowed it down even more . . . the area that it continuously reboots with LTE has a Wilson Cell Amplifier in the area, I got access to be able to unplug it temporarily . . . . and low and behold LTE is on, and no more reboots . . . . so the Amplifier is the culprit . . . . either the phone doesn’t know how to work with a boosted signal or the booster doesn’t know how to work with Pixel.
But Google has always taken every criticism and complaint in the most constructive manner.
They immediately took actions and Orrin the community manager said, “Thanks for all the info you have provided and for those that sent over bug reports. We want to let you all know that we’ve identified a fix which will be rolling out in the coming weeks”.
This is yet another trouble for Google as its Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL have been facing a number of problems. Starting from screen burns, charging issue, and hissing sounds while making a phone call. But Google has been patiently coming up with solutions to all the problems faced by the Pixel flagship.
Nader Babbili has taken out a constructive solution to this problem it is in the LTE modem of the Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL. He was the one whose conjecture led to the solution of the problem, the rebooting happened when the phone entered a low signal area. When he switched the network to 3G only the rebooting stopped completely. This problem still persists and we hope that Google rolls out the update soon to satisfy its users.
