HDR stands for High Dynamic Range, most phone have them as a built-in feature nowadays. When taking pictures, balance in light exposures can sometimes be a bit off. For instance, taking a photo to of a landscape sometimes end up with too bright back grounds and too dark shadows. SO use the HDR feature to get even light exposures.
