Now that I've got a handful of hours on beta P.. The gestures are getting more fluid but the back button needs to go. It needs to be a swiping action on the screen.

I think the flick or whatever they are calling it is a nice touch.

The worst thing so far is the app tray.. I don't really like swiping up two times to be honest. They need to just bail on the app tray and come up with a new system for app location.

Other thoughts.. new animations are good!

April update boosted pixel 2 performance quite a bit on my end. I feeling it on typing latency for sure. Hopefully battery hops back up to where it was when I bought this s.o.b

Portrait mode has significantly gotten worse with updates or I'm just recognizing how much the single lens hinders the pixel from performing correctly.

It's great when it works but man, in my type of shots, it's rarely ever anymore

As much as I love portrait mode on the pixel 2, I've learned that trees or heavy detailed backgrounds are the Achilles heel of this portrait feature. It will, in every instance, blur certain portions and not others. It's kind of frustrating, hopefully a software update fixes this but I'm betting on a dual camera feature with the next pixel.

Any advice here?
Question for you guys.

Portrait mode has been an issue with car shots for me.

Example below. In portrait, portrait mode would not work but if I took the shot in landscape it would kind of work.

Is the issue a matter of distance from the subject?
