12 Reasons For for Choosing the Polaroid Cube

95% Lighter

The Polaroid Cube is a 59g camcorder. That's 7.5g lighter than the HTC RE (66.5g), 941g lighter than the Kodak Super 8 (1kg), 485g lighter than the Vivitar DVR786HD (544g) and 181g lighter than the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 (240g). More ...

'Weight' denotes the weight of the camcorder, including battery.

A lighter camcorder is easier to handle when recording and to carry when travelling.

Image Stabilizer

The Polaroid Cube has an image stabilizer, however the HTC RE, the Kodak Super 8, the Vivitar DVR786HD and the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 do not. More ...

'Image Stabilizer' denotes whether the camcorder has an Image stabiliser system - a function that smooths out the movement of the camera.

Image stabilization allows for far smoother videos, and lessens the amount of jerky movement that comes with handheld recording.

Full HD

The Polaroid Cube is Full HD, and so are the HTC RE and the Vivitar DVR786HD, however the Kodak Super 8 and the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 are not. More ...

A full HD camcorder captures video with a minimum resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Full HD camcorders capture more pixels which make the recording appear sharper compared to camcorders with a lower resolution.

Waterproof

The Polaroid Cube is waterproof, and so are the HTC RE and the Vivitar DVR786HD, however the Kodak Super 8 and the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 are not. More ...

'Waterproof' denotes whether the camcorder is resistant against liquid - so can be safely immersed in water without causing problems.

Waterproof cameras allow you to safely take your camera out on a boat or to the beach without worrying about damage. It also allows for some visually stunning underwater videos!

Better Kagoo Score

The Polaroid Cube has received a Kagoo Score of 82, whereas the HTC RE scored 80, the Kodak Super 8 scored 73, the Vivitar DVR786HD scored 75 and the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 scored only 67.

More Shops Are Selling It

A greater number of stores increases the price competition amongst retailers for this camcorder and also increases the chances of the product remaining in stock.

One Year Longer Manufacturer's Guarantee

The manufacturer's guarantee provided with the Polaroid Cube is two years, whereas it is one year for the Vivitar DVR786HD.

One More Award

The Polaroid Cube has received 1 award, but the Kodak Super 8 has received no awards, the Vivitar DVR786HD has received no awards and the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 has received no awards.

3 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Higher Review Score

PC Mag, Cnetfrance.fr and Curved.de all gave the Polaroid Cube a better review score. More ...

PC Mag: Polaroid Cube = 80% vs HTC RE = 50%

Cnetfrance.fr: Polaroid Cube = 74% vs HTC RE = 72%

Curved.de: Polaroid Cube = 86% vs HTC RE = 78%

Looking through the reviews we also noticed that several people thought that it had a good case and was neat.

Over 80 people thought that it had a good video quality and over 40 people thought that it also had a great picture quality. Looking through the reviews we also noticed that five people thought that it had a great recording quality.

8 Reasons Against for Choosing the Polaroid Cube

A Lot Smaller Total Megapixels

The Polaroid Cube has a total megapixels of 8MP, but the HTC RE is a 16MP camcorder (8MP bigger), the Vivitar DVR786HD is a 12.1MP camcorder (4.1MP bigger) and the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 is a 0.3MP camcorder (7.7MP smaller). More ...

A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).

A larger number of megapixels increases the sharpness of images and video.

Does Not Have a Built-in Display

The Polaroid Cube does not have a built-in display, whereas the HTC RE, the Kodak Super 8, the Vivitar DVR786HD and the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 have this feature. More ...

'Built-In Display' indicates whether the camcorder has a display built into the body of the device or not.

A built-in display is very helpful for checking the framing of the shot, or for quickly replaying your video to check everything recorded fine.

Does Not Feature Wi-Fi

The Polaroid Cube does not feature Wi-Fi, however the HTC RE, the Kodak Super 8, the Vivitar DVR786HD and the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 feature this benefit. More ...

'Wi-Fi' denotes whether the camcorder is capable of connecting to the net via wifi, in order to upload videos and images.

A wireless connection on your camcorder allows you to easily transfer videos to your computer, store them on the cloud or upload them to Facebook, all without having to worry about connecting via a wire.

Over One Year Older

The Polaroid Cube is older than the Kodak Super 8 by 17 months and older than the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 by 15 months.

Slightly Lower Expert Review Score

The average expert rating of the Polaroid Cube is only 69%, whereas the average expert rating of the HTC RE is 70% (based on 148 reviews).

Lower User Review Score

The average user rating of the Polaroid Cube is only 75%, whereas the average user rating of the HTC RE is 80% (based on 175 reviews).

Worse Brand

Polaroid camcorders have an average rating of only 69.6%, but Kodak has an average rating of 71.3% and Vivitar has an average rating of 74.6%.

3 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Lower Review Score

Digital Versus, Les Numeriques.com and Curved.de all gave the Polaroid Cube a lower review score. More ...

Digital Versus: Polaroid Cube = 20% vs HTC RE = 60%

Les Numeriques.com: Polaroid Cube = 20% vs HTC RE = 60%

For example, a camera that makes a 2048 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).

7 Reasons Against for Choosing the HTC RE

7.5g Heavier

The HTC RE has a weight of 66.5g, whereas the Kodak Super 8 is a 1kg camcorder (933.5g heavier), the Polaroid Cube is a 59g camcorder (7.5g lighter), the Vivitar DVR786HD is a 544g camcorder (477.5g heavier) and the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 is a 240g camcorder (173.5g heavier). More ...

'Weight' denotes the weight of the camcorder, including battery.

A lighter camcorder is easier to handle when recording and to carry when travelling.

Half As High Maximum Video Resolution

The HTC RE has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels pixels, which is half as high maximum video resolution as the Vivitar DVR786HD (2592 x 1944 pixels). We do not know what type of max video resolution the Kodak Super 8 have. More ...

Video resolution is the amount of pixels that make up each frame of the recorded video.

A higher video resolution means that each frame will be more detailed and sharper, with less blurring or smudging. This leads to a far higher quality video.

Worse Kagoo Score

The HTC RE has received a Kagoo Score of 80, whereas the Polaroid Cube scored 82.

Fewer Sellers

The HTC RE is only stocked by 1 seller, but the Polaroid Cube is stocked by 3 stores, the Vivitar DVR786HD is stocked by 2 stores and the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 is stocked by 2 shops. More ...

The fewer the number of shops that stock the product, the lower the competition amongst shops to keep prices low.
Older by Over One Year

The HTC RE is 18 months older than the Kodak Super 8, one month older than the Polaroid Cube and 16 months older than the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180.

Worse Brand

HTC camcorders have an average rating of only 65.1%, but Kodak has an average rating of 71.3%, Polaroid has an average rating of 69.6% and Vivitar has an average rating of 74.6%.

3 Expert Review Sites Gave It a Lower Review Score

Worse Kagoo Score

The Vivitar DVR786HD has a max video resolution of 2592 x 1944 pixels pixels, whereas the HTC RE only has a max video resolution of 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) pixels and the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 only has a max video resolution of 640 x 480 pixels. We do not know what type of max video resolution the Kodak Super 8 have. More ...

Video resolution is the amount of pixels that make up each frame of the recorded video.

A higher video resolution means that each frame will be more detailed and sharper, with less blurring or smudging. This leads to a far higher quality video.

Full HD

The Vivitar DVR786HD is Full HD, and so are the HTC RE and the Polaroid Cube, whereas the Kodak Super 8 and the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 are not. More ...

A full HD camcorder captures video with a minimum resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.

Full HD camcorders capture more pixels which make the recording appear sharper compared to camcorders with a lower resolution.

3D

The Vivitar DVR786HD is 3D, but the HTC RE, the Kodak Super 8, the Polaroid Cube and the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 are not. More ...

'3D' denotes whether the camcorder is capable of recording video in 3D or not.

3D videos have the ability to be far more immersive and captivating than standard 2D videos. However be aware that displaying them requires a monitor or TV that is capable of displaying 3D videos, and a set of glasses to allow you to view them properly.

Remote Operation

The Vivitar DVR786HD supports remote operation, however the HTC RE, the Kodak Super 8, the Polaroid Cube and the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 do not support this feature. More ...

'Remote Operation' denotes whether the camcorder can be controlled (start/stop recording) by a separate remote, or whether all control has to happen on the device itself.

A remotely operated camera is helpful because it allows you to mount the camera on a tripod and be in your own movies.

GPS

The Vivitar DVR786HD has a GPS, whereas the HTC RE, the Kodak Super 8, the Polaroid Cube and the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 do not. More ...

GPS denotes whether the camcorder has a GPS system built in, allowing it to record precisely where the video was taken.

Wi-Fi

The Vivitar DVR786HD features Wi-Fi, and so does the HTC RE, but the Kodak Super 8, the Polaroid Cube and the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 do not. More ...

'Wi-Fi' denotes whether the camcorder is capable of connecting to the net via wifi, in order to upload videos and images.

A wireless connection on your camcorder allows you to easily transfer videos to your computer, store them on the cloud or upload them to Facebook, all without having to worry about connecting via a wire.

Near Field Communication (NFC)

The Vivitar DVR786HD supports Near Field Communication (NFC), whereas the HTC RE, the Kodak Super 8, the Polaroid Cube and the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 do not. More ...

Near Field Communications (NFC) allows the camcorder to wirelessly communicate with smartphones over very short distances (<1m).

NFC can be used to transfer videos and photos from your camcorder direct to your phone, where you can then share them with friends or upload to Facebook/Twitter/etc.

Waterproof

The Vivitar DVR786HD is waterproof, and so are the HTC RE and the Polaroid Cube, whereas the Kodak Super 8 and the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 are not. More ...

'Waterproof' denotes whether the camcorder is resistant against liquid - so can be safely immersed in water without causing problems.

Waterproof cameras allow you to safely take your camera out on a boat or to the beach without worrying about damage. It also allows for some visually stunning underwater videos!

Better Brand

Vivitar camcorders have an average rating of 74.6%, however HTC only has an average rating of 65.1%, Kodak only has an average rating of 71.3%, Polaroid only has an average rating of 69.6% and VTech only has an average rating of 58.6%.

6 Reasons Against for Choosing the Vivitar DVR786HD

Heavier

The Vivitar DVR786HD is a 544g camcorder. That's 477.5g heavier than the HTC RE (66.5g), 456g lighter than the Kodak Super 8 (1kg), 485g heavier than the Polaroid Cube (59g) and 304g heavier than the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 (240g). More ...

'Weight' denotes the weight of the camcorder, including battery.

A lighter camcorder is easier to handle when recording and to carry when travelling.

25% Smaller Total Megapixels

The Vivitar DVR786HD has a total megapixels of 12.1MP, however the HTC RE is a 16MP camcorder (3.9MP bigger), the Polaroid Cube is an 8MP camcorder (4.1MP smaller) and the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 is a 0.3MP camcorder (11.8MP smaller). More ...

A megapixel (MP or Mpx) is one million pixels, and is a term used not only for the number of pixels in an image, but also to express the number of image sensor elements of digital cameras or the number of display elements of digital displays. For example, a camera that makes a 2048 1536 pixel image typically uses a few extra rows and columns of sensor elements and is commonly said to have "3.2 megapixels" or "3.4 megapixels", depending on whether the number reported is the "effective" or the "total" pixel count (as opposed to the 2048 1536 = 3,145,728 finished image pixels).

A larger number of megapixels increases the sharpness of images and video.

Worse Kagoo Score

The Vivitar DVR786HD has received a Kagoo Score of 75, but the HTC RE scored 80 and the Polaroid Cube scored 82.

Not As Many Stockists

Only 2 retailers sells the Vivitar DVR786HD, however 3 stores sell the Polaroid Cube. More ...

Smaller numbers of retailers reduces the chances of this camcorder remaining in stock and also reduces the price competition amongst retailers for the product.
Over Three Years Older

The Vivitar DVR786HD is older than the HTC RE by two years, older than the Kodak Super 8 by four years, older than the Polaroid Cube by two years and older than the VTech Kidizoom Action Cam 180 by three years.
