HDR+ is basically the old HDR auto mode. It may or may not use HDR depending on conditions.

The HDR+ Enhanced mode is now the HDR on mode. It will always use HDR.

This isn't correct. The HDR plus on is the always on mode that is default. It constantly takes underexposed photos and combines them to create better color and dynamic range. The HDR enhanced is the classic HDR that's on most phones that takes a underexposed, regular and over exposed photo and combines them for a bigger effect. This takes longer and is effected by movement very easily.

So which one would you say is better to take photos on? Sorry, I am a noob when it comes to photography

The default is good for most situations and is the one Google works to improve the most. It's very fast at that setting as well.

There's a toggle somewhere in the camera settings that will make it appear at the top

Okay, just revisiting this thread now that 8.1 is out and visual core is enabled. Am I right to think HDR+Enhanced is the one to leave it on? Should be faster than ever now with the dedicated co-processor. Dunno? That is what I have it set to now. Thoughts?

This is not my understanding

Sorry everyone, but HDR+ Enhanced is nothing special. Google just renamed the strings to better reflect how HDR+ works in the Google Camera app.

<string name="hdr_auto_desc">HDR+ on</string>
<string name="hdr_on_desc">HDR+ enhanced</string>
<string name="hdr_plus_auto_desc">HDR Plus on</string>
<string name="hdr_plus_on_desc">HDR Plus enhanced</string>

As you can see in the above strings, taken from an APK teardown of the latest Google Camera app, what was previously known as HDR+ Auto is now HDR+ On and what was once known as HDR+ On is now HDR+ Enhanced.
