Samsung Gear 360 review: The best 360-degree cam yet?

Posted:  December 14, 2016   By:    5 comments   


If I were to pick a theme for tech in 2016, it would be creating immersion. Everything from smartphones, cameras and the development of virtual reality has all been about giving the user (that’s us!) the most amount of immersion possible.

With how popular VR and 360-degree got over the course of the year, there’s no doubt that many of you are interested in trying your hand at creating and sharing such content. But which 360-degree camera do you get? If I were to buy one, it would definitely be the Samsung Gear 360. Here’s why.

wait china brand, you know xD

orang biasa

Look cool…
but compatible with Samsung phone only? Other android or iOS won't support?


    It only supports Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 edge, S6 edge+, Note5, S7 and S7 edge. You can use it standalone and manage it using a PC but you won't get any live preview.


I might get one if it supports iOS


Most of the Apple's product or I should say all of them doesn't compatible with Android, Apple's watch for instance,so why do you guys expect this one support iOS?? Doesn't make sense innit?
