Posting Some Photos from Pixel 2
Hello, Pixel fans!
Earlier this week we announced the all-new Google Pixel 2 and Pixel 2 XL with the world’s best smartphone camera — again. If you missed it yesterday, check out Mario introducing our new phones here (go to 1:18:00 to jump straight to the camera).
We showed a few photos taken on Pixel 2 during the keynote, and we know some our our most enthusiastic fans will want to see them up close for themselves. Go ahead — take a look at some of our favorite unedited Pixel 2 photos and videos. There are also two videos edited to show side-by-side comparisons of video stabilization.
Our #teampixel community has taken incredible photos with our first Pixel, and I can’t wait to see what you do with the Pixel 2 when you get your hands on one.
For now, let me know what you’re most excited to see in our new camera. :-)

PS. Keep an eye out for some tech-talk from us about Portrait in a couple weeks.
PPS. Since some of you are asking -- No equipment was used for these shots except hand grips (especially to hold two phones perfectly side-by-side for the stabilization comparisons) and, for some shots, hand-held reflectors.
-some sample images look dull (a bit like iPhone 7), the Pixel and Nexus 5x/6p were much more colorful, so at least give us an option for the Nexus/Pixel1 look, for instance this one looks unrealistically dull: https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipO2_gTkgT1QwgYaWCTowaN6d2Cb5rvyJU10cjAdSU9Ao8v9Ec-r1v1cKdWEx6PNqg/photo/AF1QipNTHZYUpeqX-TZdKK22kfrxPoGzTsMe9DR7Pd_u?key=WEdYT3BMNFZGdUlwQ0l6aEdFT1UwVlg2LUZESDhn or this one: https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipO2_gTkgT1QwgYaWCTowaN6d2Cb5rvyJU10cjAdSU9Ao8v9Ec-r1v1cKdWEx6PNqg/photo/AF1QipOtN7uk1h6ys4D58Z9cmc1LN3i0I6LuQI5XQW57?key=WEdYT3BMNFZGdUlwQ0l6aEdFT1UwVlg2LUZESDhn
-sample images are oversharpened, you see sharpening halos, this wasn't an issue with Nexus 5x/6p/Pixel, look at the climber's back: https://photos.google.com/share/AF1QipO2_gTkgT1QwgYaWCTowaN6d2Cb5rvyJU10cjAdSU9Ao8v9Ec-r1v1cKdWEx6PNqg/photo/AF1QipP3IopzoNWtRutf8O0b0V_Tm83GIg_MdgnEWVMA?key=WEdYT3BMNFZGdUlwQ0l6aEdFT1UwVlg2LUZESDhn
-no dual camera zoom
-depth of field effect with bad mistakes, see https://cdn.dxomark.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/ref2_Bokeh-Outdoor_GooglePixel2.jpg
- the sensor is nearly 20% smaller, so you get more noise in good lighting conditions (f/1.8 has nearly no advantage in good lighting conditions), see this sample image and look at the sky: https://cdn.dxomark.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/010-3_ref.jpg The Nexus 5x/6p and the first Pixel had less noise in good lighting conditions. Even the irrelevant Dxomark gave the Pixel 2 a worse noise score than the first Pixel
-the new lens seems to be much worse. Just look at this sample image from gsmarena, there is a bad loss of contrast, it looks hazy, the Pixel and the Nexus 5x/6p never had this issue: https://cdn.gsmarena.com/imgroot/reviews/17/google-pixel-2/handson/camera/gsmarena_006.jpg
- apparently no HDR+ raw files and no manual mode
I hope that Google will fix these issues with the Pixel 3 as the Pixel 2 seems to be a step back
