How to view your recent Pixel portrait photos with bokeh off

How to view your recent Pixel portrait photos with bokeh off

Google Photos storage will soon count against your quota, which might be a reason why Google is trying to make its camera more economical.

The Sense also has its own raft of new glitches that I find equally annoying.
