DPReview has posted a sample gallery of real world images from the Google Pixel 2, keep in mind that the Pixel 2 XL has the same internal camera components. I mostly wanted to see how the portrait mode worked, and on a couple of images, I think it does a nice job. It looks like it won’t be the most reliable feature, but hopefully software updates will improve the feature over time.
Noise performance looks to be what one would expect with such a small sensor and color rendition is going to be hit or miss for people, as that generally comes down to personal preference.
