I'm still not particularly impressed to be honest

HDR is going to make your pictures very flat - lacking contrast.  I use it as little as possible - only with extremely strong backlighting.

When I first got my Samsung S10e portraits looked plasticky and I found out that by default the camera was set to have a "beauty" filter on and that obliterated details.  I quickly turned it off and my photos improved.
