We compared this camera to all the other cameras which support Full HD video and we think because of it's better review score, the Canon SX720 HS[plb_3300259_price] is also worth considering.

This digital camera supports a JPG image formats supported, which is the most commonly supported image formats supported supported by similar spec cameras that are a comparable age to the Gear 360.
10 Reasons Against
Quite Small Display Diagonal
When compared to other compact cameras that have been available for a similar time to the Gear 360 that we have checked the display diagonal of, the Samsung Gear 360's display diagonal of only 0.5 inches is one of the smallest. The average display diagonal of digital cameras that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Gear 360 is 2.7".
Does Not Have an Image Stabilizer
The Gear 360 does not have an image stabilizer, unlike most of the other latest compact cameras.
Alternative cameras which also have an image stabilizer that you might also want to look at include the Canon SX720 HS[plb_3300259_price], or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ57[plb_2835365_price] which also has a higher rating.

Like most of the other compact cameras that are a similar age to the Gear 360, the Samsung Gear 360 does not have a GPS (satellite).

There are a number of alternative cameras which also have a built-in flash which you might want to look at including the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ57[plb_2835365_price].
Quite Low Megapixel
The lowest megapixel of cameras that have been on the market for the last year is 8MP, the highest is 21MP, and the average megapixel is 18MP. The Gear 360 has a quite low megapixel (only 15 megapixels) compared to most of the other newly released compact cameras.
We checked 17 comparable spec cameras that were launched in the last 12 months and they range in price from £48 to £277. We think that this camera looks expensive compared to other comparable spec cameras that were launched in the last 12 months.
