Best Seller

Some Samsung Gear 360 owners thought it was easy to use. Bogdan Dumitru gave it a score of 5 stars and said “Easy to use, fast connection, great q” in their review of the Samsung Gear 360.

Samsung Has Good Digital Camera Reviews

Samsung compact camera digital cameras have good ratings on average and across all digital cameras Samsung is one of the better rated manufacturers.

Good Battery Life

One Samsung Gear 360 owner who reviewed it reckoned that it had a good battery life. Santiago Falzone wrote in his Samsung Gear 360 review on Amazon “The only problem is the huge battery drainage that produces on the linked phone”.

Good Size

One Samsung Gear 360 owner reckoned that this digital camera was easy to carry around. D. Leckey said in their review on Amazon in December this year “The camera is slightly smaller than a tennis ball and easy to carry”.

Reasonably Priced

One Samsung Gear 360 owner said that it was a bargain for the price. Amazon Customer gave the product a score of 4 stars and wrote on Amazon a few weeks ago “It's only early days for this type of stuff and now VR is becoming a big deal, we can see massive improvements in years to come” in their Samsung Gear 360 review.

Good Product Quality

One customer who purchased it said that it was good quality.

Recent Price Drop of £26.00

In the last 58 days the price of the Gear 360 has dropped by £26.00.

Supports Full HD Video

supports Full HD video

The Samsung Gear 360 supports Full HD video, which is unusual. Most of the other compact camera digital cameras that have been on the market for around the same time as the Gear 360 do not support Full HD video.

We compared all the other cameras which support Full HD video to this digital camera and we think the SX720 HS[pl_3300259_price], and the PowerShot SX540 HS[pl_3191137_price] both from Canon or the Nikon DL[plb_3308959_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Very Narrow

Digital cameras that were launched in the last 12 months have widths of between 62mm and 140mm, and the average width is 99mm. The Samsung Gear 360 is one of the narrower compact camera digital cameras that have been available for a comparable time to the Gear 360 (only 66.7 millimeters) amongst compact camera digital cameras of this age.

Chart Edit

11 Reasons Against

Quite Small Screen Size

The screen sizes of compact camera digital cameras that are a similar age to the Gear 360 range from 0.5" to 3", and the average screen size is 2.8". When compared to other compact camera digital cameras that have been available for around the same time as the Gear 360, the screen size of the Samsung Gear 360 of only 0.5 inches is one of the smallest.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

The Gear 360 does not have an image stabiliser, unlike most of the other compact camera digital cameras that were released in the last 12 months.

We compared all the other cameras which also have an image stabiliser to this camera and we think the SX720 HS[pl_3300259_price], or the PowerShot SX540 HS[pl_3191137_price] both from Canon or the Nikon DL[plb_3308959_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Samsung Gear 360 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other similar spec digital cameras that were launched in the last 12 months also do not support WiFi connectivity.

We think you might also be interested in other digital cameras which also support WiFi connectivity including the SX720 HS[pl_3300259_price], or the PowerShot SX540 HS[pl_3191137_price] both from Canon or the Nikon DL[plb_3308959_price].

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a GPS

Most compact camera digital cameras that came out in the last 12 months do not have a GPS. The Samsung Gear 360 is no exception to this as it too does not have a GPS.

It is worth considering alternative digital cameras which also have a GPS including the SX720 HS[pl_3300259_price], or the PowerShot SX540 HS[pl_3191137_price] both from Canon which is also higher rated.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

Like most of the other latest comparable spec cameras, the Samsung Gear 360 is not 3D compatible.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Video Recording

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Flash

The Gear 360 does not have a built-in flash. Most of the other compact camera digital cameras that have been around for the last year also do not have a built-in flash.

Chart Edit

Quite Low Megapixel Count

The Samsung Gear 360 has a quite low megapixel count (only 15 megapixels) compared to most of the other compact camera digital cameras that came out around the same time as the Gear 360. The average megapixel count of new similar spec digital cameras is 18MP, and the megapixel counts range from 8MP to 21MP.

Chart Edit

Expensive

After checking the price of 25 compact camera digital cameras that were launched in the last 12 months they range in price from £44 to £280. We think that this Samsung camera looks expensive compared to other compact camera digital cameras that were launched in the last 12 months.

Thick

The thinnest compact camera camera that came out in the last 12 months is 18mm deep and the thickest is 92mm. At 56.2 millimeters, the Gear 360 is fairly thick compared to most of the other compact camera digital cameras that are a similar age to the Gear 360.

Average Weight

With a weight of 153 grams, the Gear 360 has a relatively typical weight compared to most of the other digital cameras that have been on the market for a similar time to the Gear 360.

If you would consider a camera with a heavier weight then you might want to look at the Canon SX720 HS[plb_3300259_price] (270g) which also has a higher rating.
