Good Size

One person reckoned that the Samsung Gear 360 was easy to carry around. D. Leckey wrote on Amazon “The camera is slightly smaller than a tennis ball and easy to carry” in their review of the Samsung Gear 360.

Good Product Quality

One Samsung Gear 360 owner wrote in their reviews that this digital camera was good quality.

Supports Full HD Video

supports Full HD video

The Gear 360 supports Full HD video, which is unusual. Most of the other new digital cameras do not support Full HD video.

Alternative cameras which support Full HD video currently available that you might want to consider include because of it's better review score, the PowerShot S120[pl_1602828_price], or the SX720 HS[pl_3300259_price] both from Canon or the Nikon Coolpix S6900[plb_2513006_price].

Quite Big Battery Capacity

Across all the comparable spec digital cameras that were launched in the last year the battery capacities range from 630mAh to 1,900mAh. With a battery capacity of 1,350 milliampere * hour, the Gear 360 has a fairly big battery capacity compared to most of the other newly released similar spec cameras.

Chart Edit

Narrow

At only 66.7 millimeters, the Gear 360 is fairly narrow compared to most of the other digital cameras that were launched in the last 12 months. The widths of compact camera digital cameras that have been available for a similar time to the Gear 360 range from 62mm to 140mm, and the average width is 100mm.

Chart Edit

10 Reasons Against

Quite Small Screen Size

The screen size of the Samsung Gear 360 of only 0.5 inches is one of the smallest amongst comparable spec cameras that were released in the last year. The average screen size of new compact camera digital cameras is 2.8".

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Image Stabiliser

The Samsung Gear 360 does not have an image stabiliser, unlike most of the other compact camera digital cameras that were launched in the last year which have an image stabiliser.

We compared all the other digital cameras which also have an image stabiliser to this camera and we think the PowerShot S120[pl_1602828_price], or the PowerShot SX420 IS[pl_3191138_price] both from Canon or the Nikon Coolpix S6900[plb_2513006_price] which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Does Not Support WiFi Connectivity

The Gear 360 does not support WiFi connectivity. Most of the other similar spec digital cameras that have been available for around the same time as the Gear 360 do support WiFi connectivity.

There are a number of other cameras which also support WiFi connectivity that you might want to look at including the PowerShot S120[pl_1602828_price], or the PowerShot SX420 IS[pl_3191138_price] both from Canon or the Nikon Coolpix S6900[plb_2513006_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Have a GPS

The Gear 360 does not have a GPS. Most of the other recently released similar spec digital cameras also do not have a GPS.

Other digital cameras which also have a GPS that you might also want to look at include the PowerShot SX420 IS[pl_3191138_price], the SX720 HS[pl_3300259_price], or the IXUS 285 HS[pl_3191157_price] all from Canon which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Flash

Most cameras that have been around for a comparable time to the Gear 360 do not have a built-in flash. The Samsung Gear 360 is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in flash.

We think you might also be interested in alternative digital cameras which also have a built-in flash including the PowerShot S120[pl_1602828_price], or the PowerShot G16[pl_1602829_price] both from Canon or the Nikon Coolpix S6900[plb_2513006_price] which also has a higher rating.

Chart Edit

Does Not Support Video Recording

The Gear 360 does not support video recording. Most of the other similar spec digital cameras that have been around for around the same time as the Gear 360 also do not support video recording.

We compared this digital camera to all the other digital cameras with a video recording and we think the Nikon Coolpix S6900[plb_2513006_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Low Megapixel Count

The average megapixel count of compact camera digital cameras that are a comparable age to the Gear 360 is 18MP. The Samsung Gear 360 has one of the lower megapixel counts (only 15 megapixels) amongst similar spec digital cameras of this age.
