Portrait mode was activated. Pretty simple subject right? A person in front of a stone wall, with high contrast and very good separation. No flying hair to worry about, etc. The wall was about the same distance to the phone across the frame. But look at that result. The lower right of the wall by the monitor is in sharp focus. The back of the monitor is in sharp focus. And the blurring of the wall across the frame is uneven. Edge separation is barely OK. If you just look at it quickly, it’s not bad. Maybe I was expecting too much, but this isn’t impressive from a $1,000 phone. Perhaps the results will get better over time or when Google decides to turn on the Pixel’s extra visual cores.
But for now, call me unimpressed. What do you think?
