An All-Round Good Camera
The Gear 360 is a handy little camera. It's nice and compact so easy to take out and about. If being used on it's own without a connected smartphone, taking pictures and video is pretty simple with a push of a button and you can easily view them later. In this case, it's probably best to take several shots as there's no way to view the images on the camera itself. When connected to a smartphone, you can see what the camera sees which makes things easier and you can instantly see how the pictures and videos have turned out after. The 360 images are best viewed on a VR headset such as the Gear VR but even on a regular screen, they're rather good. The only downside with the images is that when zoomed in, they can be grainy. So far, I've taken the camera out with me on walks by the sea and hiking up hills as well as testing it out at home. I've done live streams on Facebook as well as taking some photographs and videos. It's a great way to share your adventures where ever you go. While it certainly has it's many uses, for the majority of people it may be little more than a novelty or a gimmick. Overall, it is a very fun device to use but i'm not yet sure if the novelty will wear off and only end up using it on occasions such as during outings or attending events or use it on a regular basis. I will definitely keep it with me where ever I go though, as I may find there are plenty more good opportunity to use it.
Best Mobile 360 Camera
If you've ever used a GoPro, the experience of setting up the Gear 360 is relatively easy and simple. Turn it on, pair it with bluetooth, download any relevant apps (if you own a Samsung) and you're good to go. The Gear 360 paints a similar picture to the Gear VR - in the sense, that it is extremely better if you own a Samsung smartphone. However, unlike the Gear VR, if you don't own a Samsung you can still use the Gear 360 with the basic features you expect a 360 camera to do.

For what its worth, like I said the Gear 360 does everything you expect it to, and more. If you had tried last years model, you'll be relieved to know almost all the shortcomings of that have been addressed and sufficiently improved. The biggest improvement is that the Gear 360 stitches its videos automatically, rather than depend on the horsepower of your Samsung smartphone. This second generation is just everything the first should've been, and leaves very little to complain about.
