I am using Adobe Standard right now because i think the color is more realistic ( i hate fake color)

what is the real difference between these two?

just higher color saturation in Adobe Color?

i would like to listen to others opinion on this matter

I also find the Adobe Color profile unrealistic, and despite the statements, I not consistent across images from different cameras.

I find anything brown takes on a chocolate hue, and greens just turn a horrible false hue. Most images look awful on this profile, IMHO of course :-).

Adobe Standard is better, but still not great. The most natural looking profiles are the ‘Camera xxxxxxx’ dedicated ones. On my Nikon I use Camera Neutral as a starting point, as I feel there’s much more fine control over the adjustments - I can choose how much saturation is needed, for example.

On images from older cameras, I found the old ACR 4 profiles were more natural.

You may just have to try different profiles, and see what works for you. As others have mentioned, you can tweak them, or save new camera default settings, or save as a preset. You might find different profiles work better on certain images.
