Polaroid Cube review

 

Polaroid's Cube isn't as tough as a GoPro or as high-quality as a handheld cam, but at $99, the easy-to-use action cam makes a novel way to shoot from new perspectives.

Easy to use ; Compact and lightweight ; Inexpensive ; Easily mounted to anything metal

No conventional mount included ; Video quality less than some phones

Polaroid Cube+ review: The addition of Wi-Fi makes all the difference

 

With beefed-up video and photo features and the ability to wirelessly control it with your smartphone, this Cube is roundly better than its predecessor.

The Polaroid Cube+ has the same supersmall lightweight design and ease of use as the original Cube, but with its wireless capabilities you can actually see what you're shooting by connecting to a smartphone or tablet. Video and photo features improve...

Video and photo quality, though better than the original Cube, is still just OK, best suited for viewing at small sizes, such as on a smartphone. Integrated battery means you'll have to recharge or connect to a power source to keep shooting.

The Polaroid Cube+ keeps all the good stuff from the original Cube -- namely its design, simple operation and reasonable price -- but the added wireless definitely makes it a better camera worthy of the extra cost.

Polaroid Cube

 

The tiny Polaroid Cube is an excellent choice as a bargain-priced action cam, offering no frills, but surprisingly good video.

Good video quality. Tiny. Inexpensive. Simple to use. Rugged.

Relatively narrow field of view for an action cam. Low-res still images. Limited video resolution choices.

The Polaroid Cube is tiny, cute, simple to use, and produces surprisingly good video. Although it takes still images, they're of relatively low resolution, and the camera doesn't support either time-lapse or burst mode. If you don't need these modes,...

Polaroid's Cube hands-free video in an ultrasmall package

 

The eye-catching Polaroid Cube is an inexpensive 1080p video camera that's small and light enough to be your constant companion.

The Polaroid Cube is an ultrasmall and lightweight action cam for catching life's little moments on the fly. It can be used for capturing HD-resolution video, snapping photos, and as a dashboard cam.

The only mount included is its built-in magnet. No microSD card is included for storage. Video quality is just OK considering the price. Video is split into 5-minute clips while recording.

The eye-catching Polaroid Cube is an inexpensive 1080p action cam with video quality that takes a backseat to design.

One button operation makes the camera incredibly easy to use. Video image quality is very good for an affordable action camera. Very simple to change camera settings.

Polaroid Cube Review

 

What do you do with a cube that fits in the palm of your hand, sticks to metal with a magnet, and takes photos and video? You capture the world around you, of course. You capture it casually, and you capture it with the playfulness and joy that the...

Is the Polaroid Cube worth the cash? Absolutely. Even without apps, even without a viewing screen. Even without the ability to toss it down a mountain. You’ll be able to pick the Polaroid Cube up in Orange/Red, Blue, or Black (we’ve got Black)...

Review: Polaroid Cube

 

When someone mentions action cams, most people think of expensive pieces of equipment loaded with features designed for people who spend the weekend snowboarding off Mount Everest into a pool full of sharks. The Polaroid Cube action cam is also billed...

The case is rubberized, splash resistant, shockproof and has a small screw-open access port on the rear. Open this with a coin and inside is a mini USB port and a slot that takes a micro SD of up to 32 GB. Next to this is a switch to adjust between...

Polaroid Cube Review: A Tiny Adorable Camera

 

The Polaroid Cube is a delightful little camera that takes still shots and video. Like the name suggests, it's a tiny cube just 35mm on a side. It sticks to any and all magnetic surfaces--even your dinner fork. It can be tossed around and taken out on...

Polaroid Cube review

 

It might be indelibly linked to instant cameras and film, but the Polaroid brand has long been seen on other products like tablets, televisions, headphones, and, yes, action cams such as the XS100i .

The Polaroid Cube is an ultrasmall and lightweight action cam for catching life's little moments on the fly. It can be used for capturing HD-resolution video, snapping photos, and as a dashboard cam.

The only mount included is its built-in magnet. No microSD card is included for storage. Video quality is just OK considering the price. Video is split into 5-minute clips while recording.

Polaroid Cube review

  (Rating Hidden)

Action cameras don't get much smaller, lighter or more eye-catching than the Polaroid Cube, with its lens and electronics packed inside a tiny cube-shaped body only one and a half inches on each side. It's only 45g in weight, yet it still shoots Full...
