Matt Birchler, reviewing the iPhone 6s Plus:
But here’s the thing: they only show their worth when taking pictures of living things like, you know, people. Many of the reviews I have seen showed off Live Photos of inanimate objects. Pictures of their desks, of trees, of gear… Of course Live Photos don’t add much to these images. But give me a Live Photo of my wife and it’s something else. It gives context to each picture, which I really love having.
Nobody needs a Live Photo of their desk.
