    I got my S7 through Straight Talk (Walmart's no-contract phone service) and while I'm pretty happy with it, I want to take more hi-res photos. I've read about "pro" mode, but when I open my camera app, "mode" doesn't appear as a selection. Is this something that's specific to the phones from Straight Talk? Or am I missing something? I want to use "pro" mode.

    Me too! One of the recent updates took it away. I was able to take good aurora photos with the pro settings, and I've lost them.

    There is no way to take a more hi-res photo by switching to pro, it's still limited to the same 12MP image as auto. Pro let's you control things like ISO, shutter, white balance, focus, etc.

    With that said to get to pro and other camera modes you swipe from left to right. If it isn't working it may be due to the phone being in easy mode.
