HDR, is it really necessary?

I have seen people saying that HDR isn’t really needed, and maybe they are right, and maybe not…

Today I took a picture while cleaning my car.

Without HDR

The sun is shining on the wall in the background, and it is darker inside the car because of the roof. And the result is that you can see a bit of the inside of the car, and the wall is way too bright.

With HDR

With HDR activated everything can be seen, even the very bright wall looks normal.

This picture is taken with my iPhone 4, and is this really such an useless feature as some claims?

Judge for yourself.
