Of course there are comments like "Oh but you lose detail in the lights", "Looks unreal", ect. Personally, I'll take the unreal looking pic where I can see everything overall pretty detailed over a better exposed neon lights. You can't even see the person's face in the iPhone pic.
My favorite shots from a trip to the Schlossleuchten "castlelights" event at castle Drachenburg in germany.
The Pixel did an excellent job! Nearly every shot was flawless for a smartphone camera during this conditions. Messed around with the night mode, it did catch a lot of detail, but the pics look much better without it because the Disney like lightning.
