I got hold of one of these thanks to The Insiders, and have been playing with it ever since. It is a solid unit, slightly heavier than expected, and very attractive. Comes with a battery, wrist strap, cleaning cloth, charging cable, and drawstring bag to keep the camera in. After dropping the battery into the side of the camera, powering up was a simple press of a button, the app then walked me through pairing the camera to the phone, and I was ready to go.
The photos mode is extremely easy to use, image quality is great, and sharing the photos is quick and easy.
For videos, the camera chops long videos into 8.5 minute chunks which then need to be stitched back together using the video editing software on a PC. You can compress videos in the app, and then share through the usual social media apps. On testing, one 8 minute video took 25 minutes for compression, and uploading to youtube took 51 minutes, not one to try without a wi-fi connection and a full battery. Watching back videos on Youtube is very impressive, as you can look around the video by moving your phone.

Samsung Galaxy Gear 360
21st December 2016
It surprises me what this camera can do. The quality of the images is very good and I even have a A3+ print of a 360 degree view of my hall - hanging in the hall. I hoisted my Gear 360 on a tripod above my garden gazebo and now have a 360 degree of my garden and surrounding properties. It works really well with my Galaxy S7 edge and the buttons/menu are straight forward. Charging (showing red light) is easy and quick (green light when ready). Micro data card and battery easy to get to and it saves power by switching off when not used. It's well made, heavier than it looks and the small black tripod that comes with it is very handy.
Taking 360 images and then scrolling 360 degrees left, right, up, down is a level of photography that is new and I think to become exciting. It's amazing to see a high quality recording with all the action happening all around.
