    I've been running "Natural" since I got my phone, but wondering what you guys and gals are running.

    Is "Adaptive" really adaptive? Does it change by environment? Or is it just another name for saturated?

    Adaptive.

    It's supposed to adapt based on content. I assume it does though it might be hard to notice

    Natural is the correct setting for anyone who needs or even prefers accurate colors. Natural is accurate on sRGB and DCI-P3 D65 gamuts and is amazingly accurate on both (per DisplayMate).

    Adaptive is not accurate, although the name initially made me think that it was the mode that would take advantage of Android's native color management. Unfortunately this is not the case and the Adaptive is WAY off, it doesn't correspond to any known gamuts - it's just wrong.

    Boosted is obviously not accurate, but oddly enough it's more accurate than adaptive.

    Would these settings affect how your pictures come out or how they look in the gallery?

    They will impact how the picture looks on the display yes, but not how they will look on other people's displays unless you edit based on what is on your display.

    Got mine on natural as well. The only way editing photos on the phone would make sense.

    Quite honestly I hadn't paid a lot of attention to color accuracy since getting the 3 XL and had simply left it at the default. I've now changed to Natural because it is the choice if you want color accuracy.

    These links are well worth reading...

    If you remember the section in DisplayMate, "High Screen Brightness and Performance in High Ambient Light", they say that to be usable in high ambient light a display needs a dual combination of high Screen Brightness and low Screen Reflectance – the Pixel 3 XL has both. This is extremely important for screen readability, picture quality, and color accuracy in ambient light. The Pixel 3 XL Screen Reflectance was the lowest ever measured at 4.3 percent. The lower the reflectance, the better the performance.

    They are saying that the combination of brightness and reflectance is why the 3 XL is very readable in bright light even though the total nits of brightness isn't as high as some.

    DisplayMate is the authority when it comes to display analysis. And you can sure see the depth they go to in that article. Our 3 XL display is no slouch and ranks in the 3 best phone screens they've ever tested!
