You can mock Live Photos for many reasons (it particularly sucks the video part is only 12 fps) but they do have value, sometimes. Most of the time, the accompanying motion will be nonsense, redundant or just uninteresting preshow. But sometimes, it will capture moments that don’t exist in the static image and you’ll love it. It is truly ‘hit and miss’. The downside is you have to leave Live Photos enabled constantly, sacrificing storage space on every snap that’s a miss, to make sure you save those hits when they happen.
