Samsung Gear 360 review: only the first step


Here's an obvious statement: The shift from film to digital changed the way we take photos and record videos. What's less obvious about that, or at least easier to forget, is that this shift wasn't...

Great photo quality ; Sharp, small design ; Easy to use

Not durable ; Video quality doesn’t match stills ; Doesn't work with non-Samsung phones ; Long transfer times

Samsung Gear 360 camera hands-on: Capture the complete world around you


2016 is the year of the affordable 360 degree camera and one of the highest quality models available comes from Samsung. It's limited to working with a newer Samsung phone, but you will also see good output from the white ball.

Samsung Gear 360 Review


Samsung hasn't just made a bet on virtual reality being the future of entertainment, with the Gear 360 camera it wants VR content creation to be accessible to the masses, too. Hot on the heels of the Gear VR headset comes the perfect camera companion...

Samsung Gear 360 review


Samsung's Gear 360 is the best 360 cam for Galaxy owners.

If you find VR exciting and you happen to own (or are looking to buy) the S7/S7 Edge and Gear VR headset, you may want to consider owning the Gear 360 camera as well. Not only will you have the means to experience immersive 360-degree content provided...

Samsung Gear 360 review: Spherical eye


Close to the size of a billiard ball, and not far off from a grenade, the Samsung Gear 360 is meant to be versatile and explosive like those two objects, only in imaging terms. The South Korean company's 360-degree content debut is a fine effort, so...

Samsung Gear 360 review: a camera that satisfies?


The possibility of creating 360-degree photos is, for owners of a virtual reality headset, an exciting thing. With Samsung's Gear 360, this possibility has become a reality. In this Samsung Gear 360 review, we answer the question of whether this camera...

Very good image quality ; Captures the atmosphere of an environment

Parts of images can look awkward ; Unwieldy to transport ; Only compatible with a few Samsung smartphones

For maximum quality of vacation memories, this camera is not so suitable in light of the extremely wide-angle lenses of Gear 360. For many, a smartphone or reflex camera would be better simply because there mightn’t be a suitable 360-degree panorama...

Hands-on: Samsung Gear 360


Samsung wants to give the everyday person the ability to create Virtual Reality content. With VR being the next aggressive market, the Samsung Gear 360 VR camera is thus born. Read to see our trial with this pocket-sized VR shooter.

Samsung Gear 360 Hands-on


With a VR headset in tow, it was probably a foregone conclusion that Samsung would also come to market with a 360-degree camera to create content for it. Enter the Gear 360.

Samsung Gear 360


This capable little camera plays nicely with the Gear VR

Easy to capture 360 photos and video ; Big on-camera controls ; Perfect for Gear VR

Not as pocketable as LG's camera ; Not waterproof ; Requires newer Samsung phone
