    Once the settings are loaded, press the box below "Framing grids"

    There are a number of options, including "rule of thirds", "golden ratio", "crosshairs", "square" and "off". Each one of these options will select a different framing grid. A framing grid is a set of lines that helps users to position and frame a photo. All of these different options have different uses. They have very distinct abilities and can help you take very different photos. Select one based on the situation. Some of these work better for portraits, and some work better for landscapes. They help frame a subject or scene. To select one, just press down on it. In the example, "rule of thirds" is selected. A new framing grid will appear on the screen in camera mode.

    Press the white arrow located at the bottom of the phone to go back to the camera
    .
    In the example, there is a grid on the camera screen. It appears faint because of the white background. There are four lines; two vertical and two horizontal, creating a grid of nine distinct sections. This allows you to frame subjects or points of interest. This gives you a different angle and helps to frame pictures better in order to create better photos.
