    Yep. No real reason to shut it off. It doesn't slow down picture taking at all.

    Not if I keep my color = Natural.

    I also look at my images on my PC screen and it is accurately color calibrated with a Pantone X-Rite calibrator. My Pixel 2 XL screen colors are very close to my color calibrated PC screen. So the answer is no, HDR+ does not result in over saturation.

    Not at all....HDR should not impact saturation

    HDR doesn't effect color. it adjusts exposure giving more detail to Shadow and highlight areas

    I don't think so but to really tell you have to compare what you see with what you get.

    You know that keeping your screen set to Natural only effects the colors on your screen right...it has no impact on the photos you take.

    I'm thinking that he means they don't appear saturated with screen set to natural.
