    I really like the results for this picture. It's cloudy outside and I have your normal fluorescent lighting overhead.

    Nice comparison shots. But I'm curious which of the shots you think is most accurate. Both Pixel shots look better--brighter, crisper and more colorful--but is the building that is washed out in the N6 pic really as vibrant yellow/green/whatever as it appears in the Pixel shots?
    The building as it appears in real life is much closer in tone to that as shown in the Pixel/Pixel 2 shots, though those are slightly oversaturated. I just stepped out and took a nice walk around downtown and captured a number of shots with each (N6/PXL/P2XL) which I'll be posting once they all upload, along with a photosphere effort and a couple of slo-mo vids.

    Comparing the original Pixel XL to the Pixel 2 Xl is a bit more challenging. The first thing I notice i the 2 XL shot is warmer. The pavement and the entire shot has a slightly red cast to it. Or else the original XL shot is cooler and has a slightly blue cast. Only the shooter of the photo can tell us if the pavement is supposed to be grayish in tint or tend to a salmon pink tint.

    But the area where the Pixel 2 XL pulls slightly ahead of the original XL is in the detail of the eaves on the roof of the building extension on top of the "27" building (upper right corner of picture--the building extension with yellow siding and white trim.) Look at the underside of the eaves. There are long rectangular vents in the eaves which are just a tad clearer in the 2 XL than in the original XL. You can barely see them in the 6P picture.

    Another noticeable difference is the yellow fire hydrant. The yellow is more vibrant in the 2 XL than the XL. As long as you are in that area of the photos, the grout in the red bricks a few feet up the sidewalk from the fire hydrant shows more detail in the 2 XL.

    Winner, by a slight margin, and depending on color accuracy--Pixel 2 XL.
    D'oh! I revisited the pics and I got the 2 XL mixed up with the original XL. The original XL is warmer, shows more detail, fire hydrant is more vivid. The original XL is the pic with the car driving up the street; the 2 XL does not have a car driving up the street.

    So, upon further review, the winner is original Pixel XL, depending on color accuracy.

    Ok, so decided to spend my lunch break walking around a bit and getting some better mid-day shots for evolutionary comparison between the Nexus 6 (2014), Pixel XL (2016), and Pixel 2 XL (2017). Never bought the 6P, so missing that step. I tried my best to keep a steady hand and get the same shot on each, but human error will be on display with slight framing differences or motion blur.

    Sets below are displayed N6 1st, Pixel XL 2nd, Pixel 2 XL 3rd. I've jotted a couple of notes in some places regarding my amateur observations and, more importantly, impressions of their respective accuracies in capturing color.

    *N6 shot was very very off here, despite a clean lens and being as still as with the other shots, so not included.

    Noticeable difference in color of the N6/Pixel vs the Pixel 2. The Pixel 2's coloring is much closer to the true scene.

    Here the colors are truer on the Pixels again, though the Pixel XL loses a lot of detail in the heavily shadowed areas in comparison to both the Nexus 6 and Pixel 2 XL (e.g., visibility of the grating surrounding the fountain)

    But look at the blurry mess the trees are on the right side of the N6 photo. Especially the palm tree against the yellow building.

    One thing to keep in mind.... the camera hasn't even hit its full potential yet. That beast of a image processing SoC hasn't been enabled yet.

    They don't need a dedicated processor that can do 3 trillion operations per second to ONLY speed up HDR+, that's for sure.

    In all fairness, the 6 is going on 3 years and in its time, it was actually a fairly competent shooter.

    The Pixel camera is great still. While we may see some improvement with the pixel 2 over the OG Pixel, I would expect any advantage to be minor. Thanks for the comparison shots. Great stuff!

    The biggest advantage is less motion blur.

    I suspect that for still images the Pixel Visual Core won't make that big of a difference on activation for still shots. It'll certainly be needed for AR Stickers. Just a thought, and it's probably a pipe dream, but it would be amazingif it allowed for capturing video with HDR+, providing the same level of improvement as we see with still images!

    Oh, I disagree.

    Some months back, one of the Googlers was speaking at a tech thing. He talked about Google Photos and machine learning among other subjects and kinda joked that if you out and about in NYC, they could 'take a pic' of what was in front of you only knowing where you are and what direction you are facing because of the massive amount of image data that they've acquired with Google Photos. Now, I thought that was kinda of cool but didn't put much thought into it until I heard about the PVC.

    Now, what's not to say that Google can't utilize all that data and machine learning and apply it to your still pictures via that beast.

    The most powerful imaging processing system known to man is the human brain.... for good reason because our eyes kinda suck. At birth, we're a mess and it takes a while for our brain to program itself to be able to detect colors, contrast, details... pattern recognition, etc. The amount of data processing that is going on every second is staggering.

    So now Google has a massive amount of data to draw upon... pictures of landmarks, dogs, clouds, bugs, street signs, wives, kids, concrete, burritos and steel wire....

    So I think when that SoC kicks in, it is going to process any image you take and then use all that learned knowledge to augment HDR+. So when you take that vacation to Paris and take a picture of your wife/gf in front of the Eiffel Tower, it will know what both her face should look like and what the trusses of that tower should look like; the mime off to the right, the coffee cart next to here and the bird flying overhead.... down to keeping the tiny freckle that's on the corner of her left eye that your G6 would TOTALLY wipe away. This would take a substantial amount of processing power, of course. Maybe, perhaps a processor that can crank out 3 trillion ops a second?

    Maybe I'm going way too sci/fi here with this, but I see all those little hints over the past couple of years. If this is the direction they are going in, man....we haven't seen anything yet.

    Hi guys, just started using my pixel 2 XL coming from iPhone 6s.

    I'm not sure if my phone has an issue. After taking a picture and pulling up the image to look at it, the entire screen goes completely black except the home and back button. It does this every time. Wondering if you guys are experiencing the same problem and if I should exchange the phone.

    Thank you.

    What gave it away for me was the Halo / flaring on the bottom right, which is fixed on the Pixel 2 ..


    Now let see some Pixel 2 photos peeps!!!
    No, the Pixel 2/XL still has issues with haloes and flaring. It was mentioned and shown in the DxOMark review.
