Samsung Gear 360 review: A super 360-degree camera that only plays nicely with Galaxy phones

The Samsung Gear 360 is a super bit of kit, but small niggles irk considering the price

Price
£350

There are two main things that I've learned while reviewing the Samsung Gear 360, neither of them good. 1) My hair definitely looks thinner from above than I would like, and 2) My life isn't really eventful enough to warrant having a 360-degree camera on me at all times.

Nonetheless, if your life does justify the extravagance, then the Samsung Gear 360 won't let you down. However, there are a few caveats I should throw in there first of which is the whopping price tag. For the rest, you'll just have to read on.

Samsung Gear 360: Design

The Samsung Gear 360 is a spherical camera, somewhere between the size of a golf ball and a tennis ball. Do you remember that episode of Red Dwarf where Kryton loses his eye, and it comes back on little legs? The resemblance is uncanny.
