Doesn't look realistic and gives that cellphone hipstamatic type appearance.

I agree, especially that third photo of the ancient arch in front of the beige building. The building is out of focus but then you would expect a similar and more severe effect for objects in the foreground. Instead they are sharp.

Caveat: I'm a long time hater of fake bokeh ever since Martha Stewart started using that effect over a decade ago in food shots. Mark my word, when visual artists in 2040 want to invoke a "retro 2000s" look they will employ fake bokeh.
