    Finally, we tap it one more time
    .
    It will switch back into the "HDR AUTO" mode. HDR allows to take several photos. These photos are then combined into one image; so, we will have more than one image taken at a time. As the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge has a limited amount of memory, and it's not expandable, it is advisable to only use HDR when we would like to have the best possible photo for the situation. This is something that we can learn about in the tutorials on VisiHow.
