You desire to have an enlarged picture and you want a feature that can help you achieve this purpose it is better you take the picture first and then go on to edit the picture by cropping it, this you do by tapping on the option button which will allow you enlarge the picture to your desired size rather than using the zoom in feature. The optical zoom is when you place your two fingers on the screen while taking pictures, but doing so will make you take a blur picture, so avoid using the zoom in feature when you desire those nice shots.

The HDR mode is one of the smartest features of latest smart phones.
Up close and personal is what I have tagged that type of picture you wish to snap as close as possible. You saw a miniature flower and desire to have wonderful glimpse of it, or are you a researcher who detected a small organism and desire to have a closer look at it. Taking a close-up snapshot is just the best option. Your smart phone is smart enough to give you that edge to take snapshots by tapping on the object on the screen of the phone. If your smart phone is of the latest version, it should be able to provide you with a virtual box on your camera when you launch it, so when you see that just tap the box and it will help you snap a close-up snapshot.
