Samsung’s 360° cam­era is all about ease-of-use: pop it into the rub­berised base, tap the id­iot-proof big red button and you’re away. The ac­com­pa­ny­ing app will help you line up shots, while up­load­ing new con­tent to so­cial me­dia takes just a few quick taps. It also makes a good job of stitch­ing to­gether your footage to cre­ate 360° panora­mas, though in our tests some dark­en­ing was vis­i­ble around the joins. For re­ally con­vinc­ing re­sults, we’d sug­gest drop­ping the res­o­lu­tion and se­lect­ing a higher frame rate. 8/10
