Samsung Gear 360 (2017) review

 

This second-gen 360-degree camera is a very small step forward

Fun, capable software ; Good price ; Works with iOS ; Slick, ergonomic design

Disappointing video quality ; Slight downgrade in specs over 2016 model ; Limited Android compatibility

The 2017 edition of Samsung’s Gear 360 is easy and fun to use, especially if you haven’t dipped into 360-degree video before. At $229, it’s definitely one of the best values on the market, too. But be warned, the video quality can be iffy, and opting...

Samsung Gear 360 (2017) review

 

Is this the best way to get a properly rounded view of the world?

Samsunggear 360 camera

 

I've only just bought this camera having used the older model for some time, these are great cameras for 360 degree photography particularly if you take them out and about with you . This latest model (2017 version) will also work with iOS phones.

easy to use

 

I bought this about a month ago and had some fun with it, the idea was to link in with movies I made on the GoPro 6 but this is so far a bit of a pain. Be careful about how you hold it so you don't get giant thumb on playback, worth using a small...

Poor iOS app

 

I can't view saved pictures and videos in the app. I had to find a third party app for that. This problem should be fixed.
