It talks about burst mode in the help files on the phone, under "taking continuous camera shots." Basically when using the normal camera in Auto mode, simply holding down the shutter button will capture up to 20 photos. You can then edit the batch from the gallery app. Like stitching several of a kid running through the yard together so you see one scene (the yard), but several instances of the subject (kid) as it moves across the screen. You can also apparently edit out some objects, like another person that randomly appeared in the background for one or two shots, but I haven't explored that feature yet. Here's a sample of a few bursts stitched together of one of my kids. She wasn't cooperating, so I had to move the camera some during the burst to keep her in the frame, which caused the weird coloration on the right side of the image. Also, as you can tell by how her arm was cropped off on the right image of her, you don't want to stitch images together where the subject could overlap. This was the first time playing with this function, so I'm sure it'll get better as I get used to it.
TL;DR: It's just fun to play around with the various camera tricks.
