Upon booting up a brand new -pixel 2 received in the mail, the dismayed Reddit user says the telephone arrived with no operating system installed. Â
Google confirmed with Mashable that this event did, in fact , occur, along with a solution has been reached.
As shown in the image below, on unboxing the device, the brand new Pixel two informed Reddit user MAKES_PEOPLE_MAD it couldn’t “find valid operating system. inch Under normal circumstances, every -pixel is installed with Google’s internationally pervasive Android mobile operating system. Â
Mashable was able to reach the Reddit user by e-mail, who stated pressing a “Reboot” option for the phone just led him to the screen below. Â
With simply no operating system to be found, MAKES_PEOPLE_MAD called Search engines, and they asked him to email the Pixel back while saying yes to ship him a new -pixel â? presumably with Android software program installed.
“Now my large hope is that it ships today enjoy it says it’s supposed too, inch he told Mashable. Â
Initially, he says Google told him it could not expedite shipping, but then evidently relented, along with giving him $25 Google Play Store credit.
This inconvenience apparently didn’t decrease him from abandoning the -pixel 2 altogether. In an emailed declaration sent to Mashable, the phone owner stated:
“I decided to go with a -pixel 2 because I generally don’tÂ buy flagship phones, but my function is very demanding, and I need to be capable to do things like maps, calls, place research and texting allÂ at as soon as. I also thought the Assistant could be helpful [while] driving. ” Â
He will almost certainly update the Reddit community if his next -pixel 2 is also missing its software program. This sounds like a rare mishap, even though Google declined to comment more on the event.
