What degree of difference in gravity is noticeable?

Setting: Earth and an Earthlike planet with slightly lower gravity, linked by a portal (just step through and you're there)

So, if the other planet has slightly different gravity (80% or 90% of Earth's), how much of a difference would a person stepping through be likely to notice? Would they feel significantly lighter on their feet, clumsier because of taking longer steps than they intended, etc.?

Research: I tried searching things like "perception of gravity", "what does less gravity feel like", "what does Venus gravity feel like", but didn't get anything very relevant
