The Pixel 2 XL launched with a pretty underwhelming display, and while it's still not the best the market has to offer, it's since gotten a lot better thanks to customizable color profiles that you can change on the fly.

Users have three of these to choose from, including Natural, Boosted, and Saturated. I was personally rocking Saturated on my baby Pixel 2 for a while, but I've since moved to Boosted as I've come to appreciate the more life-like colors.

One of our forum users popped the question to our community to find out what profile they're using on the phone, and these are a few of the responses.

I've stuck with Boosted and have appreciated the more natural colors than in saturated mode.

I prefer natural because I hate the oversaturated colors. I like natural because when taking pictures it's more true to what the naked eye sees. And none of them help keep burn in down over the rest.

I've used both Natural and Boosted, and am currently staying on Natural. I find Saturated to be too intense, bordering on fake looking.

Natural or Boosted. Mostly Natural but depends on what Icon pack I am using.
