  1. This happened to me with my pixel 3, 1 1/2 years old. Was down to 15%, and charged it, when I checked it a short while later was black, could hear some sounds within initially, dinging messages coming thru and could feel the vibration when pushing the power and volume down at same time and other button in front, however still black. Read google support pg and obscurely came across advice to call pixel phone from another phone. Luckily have a Samsung work phone. I called my pixel and it was revived, 🙂 yay. was looking at google store and pixel 3s are unavailable and 4s in short supply and $799 or $899, so expensive. So try calling yourself if screen goes black and unresponsive. good luck!
