Good Battery Life

One Samsung Gear 360 reviewer reckoned that the product had a good battery life. In January last year Santiago Falzone scored it 80 out of 100 and he said in his Samsung Gear 360 review on Amazon “The only problem is the huge battery drainage that produces on the linked phone”.

Supports Full HD Video

supports Full HD video

The Gear 360 supports Full HD video. Most of the other compact cameras that have been available for around the same time as the Gear 360 do not support Full HD video.

We compared all the other cameras which support Full HD video to this camera and we think the SX720 HS[pl_3300259_price], and the PowerShot SX540 HS[pl_3191137_price] both from Canon which has better reviews is also worth considering.

9 Reasons Against

Quite Small Display Diagonal

Compact cameras that were launched in the last year have display diagonals of between 0.5" and 3", and the average display diagonal is 2.7". The Gear 360 has a very small display diagonal (only 0.5 inches) compared to most of the other newly released similar spec digital cameras.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Image Stabilizer

The Gear 360 does not have an image stabilizer, unlike most of the other comparable spec digital cameras that have been around for a similar time to the Gear 360.

There are a number of alternative cameras which also have an image stabilizer which you might want to look at including the SX720 HS[pl_3300259_price], or the PowerShot SX540 HS[pl_3191137_price] both from Canon or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ57[plb_2835365_price] which also has a higher rating.

Does Not Support Wi-Fi

The Gear 360 does not support wi-Fi, unlike most of the other new compact cameras.

We compared this digital camera to all the other digital cameras with a wi-Fi and we think the SX720 HS[pl_3300259_price], or the PowerShot SX540 HS[pl_3191137_price] both from Canon or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ57[plb_2835365_price] which also has a higher rating is also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not Waterproof

Like most of the other latest cameras, the Gear 360 is not waterproof.

Chart Edit

Not 3D

The Gear 360 is not 3D, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other recently released compact cameras are also not 3D.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a GPS (satellite)

The Samsung Gear 360 does not have a GPS (satellite). Most of the other compact cameras that are a similar age to the Gear 360 also do not have a GPS (satellite).

We compared all the other digital cameras which also have a GPS (satellite) to this camera and we think the SX720 HS[pl_3300259_price], or the PowerShot SX540 HS[pl_3191137_price] both from Canon which is also higher rated is also worth considering.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have a Built-In Flash

Like most of the other new cameras, the Gear 360 does not have a built-in flash.

We think you might also be interested in other cameras which also have a built-in flash including the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ57[plb_2835365_price] which also has a higher rating.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Quite Low Megapixel

The Gear 360 has one of the lower megapixels (only 15 megapixels) amongst similar spec digital cameras of this age. Across all the cameras that have been available for a comparable time to the Gear 360 the megapixels range from 8MP to 21MP, and the average megapixel is 18MP.

2 Other reasons to consider the Samsung Gear 360

Released Ten Months Ago

It was ten months ago when this camera was released.

Average Weight

With a weight of 153 grams, the Samsung Gear 360 has a relatively standard weight compared to most of the other cameras that came out around the same time as the Gear 360.

If you don't mind having a heavier weight then you might also want to look at the Canon SX720 HS[plb_3300259_price] (270g), or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ57[plb_2835365_price] (223g) which is also higher rated.
