  1. I sold my pixel 2 XL, and missed the camera so I bought another one. I updated it to Android 8.1 Feb update. On my old Pixel 2 XL, I went into developer options and enabled Camera HAL. That option is missing on my new pixel 2 XL. I just want to make sure I understand, that setting is now turned on by default?

  2. So was the visual core used for anything at all before Febuary or whenever it was opened to third party apps? He says the normal camera app still doesn't use the visual core, so what's the point of it exactly? If it's not helping your main camera app then what's the difference between the processing times and battery usage from pixel 1 to pixel 2, seeing as the dedicated processor for hdr+ isn't being used by the camera app on pixel 2..?

  3. I hope Samsung does something to counter this because their quality on SC And instagram is not as great as the iPhones. With this enabled now the Pixel 2 photos will be better than iPhone? Yeah Pixel 2 is what I want so bad now.

  4. Some one help I'm having major issues with snapchat WhatsApp Instagram and other 3rd party apps since this visual core update, my images turn in to an absolute mess with huge pink, blue and other weird patterns going through it and you can't even see the image, yet video is fine

  5. Tks for this, it's hard to explain this to people, specially with so many click bait headlines out there. You guys should also make a separate video explaining HDR+, most people doesn't even know that HDR+ is way better then HDR auto, even if the phone triggers HDR.

  6. What kind of savage snaps a photo directly to their Instagram. Admittedly I don’t use Snapchat or Instagram stories so it doesn’t really affect me.

  7. I'm so stuck on this phone it's hard to want another phone and I'm coming from the iPhone x! That's saying something for this device

  8. So is HDR+ available on non-Pixel 2 phones? Are there other photo coprocessors in other phones that could take advantage of HDR+? For example, the Sony XZ phones have a BIONZ image processor – could that be used to process HDR?
