    Since we know the Pixel 2 camera is one of the best, if not the best camera, I would be interested in seeing pictures that challenge the phone, such as low light shots, macro shots, shots of objects with a lot of detail, backlit shots, etc.

    Don't really need to see a picture of your dog or cat snapped in good lighting since just about any phone in the past 10 years is going to get that shot correct.

    Here is a corner case. Taking a pic of my screen with a Pixel 2 at home got some unexpected banding/polarization? The non-banded pic is from a Samsung S5. Ignore the resolution difference, the S5 pic was sent through Hangouts.

    That looks like your monitor's refresh rate being caught by the camera sensor. Nothing to really worry about.

    Wish my Pixel 2 would’ve came yesterday as I could’ve tested it out at the Queens of the Stone Age concert last night. But I was stuck with my iPhone 6s camera. Pixel is on the fedex truck for delivery today!!!

    I'm not too worried. I wonder if this issue will also appear on the large screen displays at sporting events, concerts, Vegas etc. In those types of pics the screen is usually in the background, so the banding issue would be a distraction from the subject(s) of the picture.

    I disagree with this. I want to see normal pics too. Yes, most cameras are good nowadays but I enjoy cat/dog pics as well as ordinary everyday shots.

    So go to almost any forum on Android Central, look for the "Post your pics here" and flip through them. They're going to look every bit as good as a photo from a Pixel 2. But since this is a Pixel 2 forum and since the camera is state of the art, I want to see photos showcasing that state of the art capabilities, not some mundane shot of someone's pet.

    Sure, but that's interesting because it's a closeup shot, it showcases the portrait mode, and it has objects of contrasting color. Also it tells a story. Poor red guy was crushed by the phone and while blue guy is freaking out, the yellow and white guys are assessing the situation. Nice.

    Very much so the OG Pixel. The portrait mode blurred out part of his ear and on top of that the tell tale flair at the bottom is a dead giveaway.

    Nice dog tho

    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!!!

    Yeah, definitely some tell-tale signs of the OG Pixel, but so many people forget it has a decent enough portrait mode!

    I liked the image but *loved* your description! All I saw was an old phone and some Lego figures until you opened my eyes.

    Yes, it was a nice little set piece and much more interesting than looking at a picture of lobster bisque.

    Eagerly awaiting gnahc79's next production.

    how did you do portrait mode on the OG? did you update your camera to the new one?

    It's on the OG Pixel. You have to hit the top left menu, and go to "Lens Blur". Also, you then have to follow instructions to pan the camera up after the pic for the depth of field to process. It's a lot more work and probably slightly worse results overall too, but it is there.
