Good to know, maybe there was a dodgy batch. I read about a guy on reddit that had resorted to fitting cooling pipes! I've been using the LG 360 cam for a while (but no 4k) so might give the Samsung another look.
Never had mine overheat. I've filmed 20 min stage shows from a tripod under hot lights, worked fine all the time.
You don't need to use the Android app. You can set it up from the buttons on the side and use the supplied software. All the app does is show you the viewfinder but - here's why that's unimportant - it's 360 so it doesn't matter where it's pointing! I paid £220 for this so this price is a steal.
That is part of a 360 photo I took and it is pretty poor. The problem is you hear 4K and think it’s going to be great but that’s a lot of area for the pixels to cover. However, it does give a unique perspective and combined with a VR viewer it is a novel way to view you pictures and videos.
Yeah link dead even when you manually search you find the product but when you click on it it's also dead. :(
