Default [Q] Lens Blur click to select focus vs default

I am playing with the new Lens Blur feature of the new Google Camera. I find the default focus and blur setting, to be quite good, and this setting, it seems that it can't be reproduced once I click to select the area I want to manually focus?

So I used the Lens Blur on my son, in the attached picture, the bottom is the default that Google gives me after processing of the picture. So I tried to click on my son's face to see if that changes anything, and to my surprise, it actually made the face more blur-er. I have tried clicking on his body and hands, but I can't seem to get the effect of the default picture.

Both the pictures are from screenshot capture on my phone itself, as I can't figure out how to make a copy of the photo and adjust the lens blur separately.

what happens when you reduce the blur effect to essentially nothing? (sliding the bar all the way to the left)

Thanks for the tip! I slide the bar to the left, and the face is still blurry, so now I am suspecting its the preview window.

I did a save after I click to focus his face. And save it. It seems pretty close to the default one after that.
