Good price. I got mine for £80 from the Amazon Warehouse one time, but I still haven't managed to get the software working yet as it didn't come with a license code.

What's the difference is the 2017 version not better?

Twas twice the price, it better be.

Do you need a samsung phone to use this or will it work for any phone?

Just read the blurb no only works for Samsung so that rules me out

Thanks OP just got one, want to compare it to the Essential 360 camera.

Hi All. The app only works with Samsung phones. you can use it without the phone and copy from the SD card to the PC then stitch but you will not be able to use it with any phone other than selected samsung phones.

So it wont work with a google pixel?

Can it be used as a surveillance device over 4G or Wi-Fi using a Samsung phone?

The 2017 has live streaming which this version doesn't. The 2017 also has a slightly worse picture quality. The body/shape are different as well

You can do a 'live preview' when you aren't recording but only over a short distance when they connect to each other via wifi (not your wifi, their own private wifi). You can't live stream with this version but you can with the newer one.

2017 version is selling same price on eBay. This is not a deal.

If anyone gets this, I would recommend trying to get hold of the official samsung 360 add on kit.
The tripod is very good, sturdy and perfect for 360 photos because it's very narrow. You can also use it as a stick to hold the camera up with.

The remote control is the thing that makes a huge difference. The self timer is okay but annoying if you want to take a lot of photos. The phone app again is okay but slightly annoying to you. The remote makes it super easy to take great photos.

The mounts as very useful too, rather than mucking around with go-pro mounts and adaptors.

I was tempted until I did a bit of reading. This is a useful sum up of a review.

" This version of the Gear 360 is more likely to be looked back on as a relic anyway, a recognizable but eventually dismissible attempt at a new idea, and the foundation for whatever Samsung does next."

That's cheap. Loved the idea of having a super wide lens. Just checked a few videos and the stitching issue on some clips looked like a problem and put me off.

I doubt I'd use it often either. So kinda fortunate I was put off early and not getting caught up in the hotukdeals buy anything bug!

Not up to the standard of the ricoh Theta S...

Was tempted, but it appears it needs a Samsung S7 or S8 to do the processing work of stitching the images together (which apparently takes ages). Hence useless to, I would guess, at least 85% of the population.

So not in the UK then?

Samsung only, the support is terrible, we got a while back, cheap but it’s not worth the hassle.

Does anyone know of any good 360 degree players? Some of youtube videos are 360 degree videos (some are not marked as such but obviously are) but none will play in any player I've got when downloaded. VLC is supposed to support 360 videos but it doesn't work with the ones I've got
