Hi, in my first experience with the gear vr 360 camera. Hacked software on a Z1c phone. Bad responsiveness,

connection repetedly lost and continuous lags. Of course, I'm running on an old phone with hacked samsung apk, and without liveview (not bad hacked interface at all!) but I'd like to know some s7 owners about their user experience, comments etc. I'm going to test the camera extensively next days, on its own and without phone control.
p.s. I'll not buy an S7, nor any samsung or xl phone at all, since I'm not liking their android mod at all, as much I dislike apple UX.

I'll try bluestacks as last solution.

With an S7 it functions flawlessly. Never had it disconnect or bug in any way.
Luca Vascon
Oh, this is good news!

Try Google Streetview so no need for hacked app. It can remotely control your gear360, both on any Android or iPhone.

How water resistant is the gear 360? I got mine stuck in a tree, and it has been rained on a bit. (It was attached to a drone...dumb idea, i know) I saw an official Samsung site that listed it as ip68, but the actual us Samsung site says ip53 (sprayed water). I wonder if they aimed for ip68 and it didn't hold up under testing. I also saw a YouTube video of a person recording with it under do you think it will survive a couple days in the elements?

Kevin Vance Thanks all for your feedback. Its deceptively large tree...about 12" in diameter... i am no where near big enough to shake it. I have a friend of a friend who is a roofer. Long ladders are his we shall see. I promise to post an update ...
Henrik Due Sjørslev Interesting to see what it has filmed :-)
Carl Selke order a trained coconut monkey
Toure L Muhammad Its a small tree, you could probably shake it and have someone catch it.
Jonny Sparrow Throw sticks at it

Check out "Johnny Pumpkins" in 360!!!

Anyone else tried the new feature (local guide 5 or trusted photographer?) for connecting photos in Google Street View? I think it is an amazing improvement and exactly what I had imagined when taking the pictures in the first place. Now I want to do more since I can properly visualize the layout.

Mase Hacker Thats something they need to fix. Did you post it in the maps forum.
David Hall Just have to link them first, then place them in the proper locations. There is no layer option, it is just direction. So direct them up stairs and from there. In my first post, 13,2,5,1,4 are all upstairs. As you can see 4 hanging out near 20, but ...
Mart Gombert Great post David, I was looking for that feature but couldn't find that. How about multiple floors, and tips how to do this with the new feature?
Jonny Sparrow Omg that's soooo much better. Going to satellite view helps too
Richard Deakin It is showing my photos are all over the place lol

Do you think its the money worth buying the S7 Edge instead of the S6 Edge plus that I have now? Will the difference in video quality/resolution in GEAR 360 be the money worth?

Nigel Cummings Yes, the S6 edge battery is awful, stitching uses a lot of processing power, depleting the battery really quickly, it barely lasts a day as it is, tasking it with 360 imagery and connectivity puts it under a great strain. The S7 can easily go two days ...
Raphael Haddock It would make sense if your wanting far better quality and speed plus don't want to spend all the time using the PC software...
Jamal Jamie Green I would think not. It would be nice to see a comparison. BTW -- I think Action Director is fine for basic stitching -- definitely if just comparing this vs the phone. Of course the pro apps will give more advanced options, but will set you back much ...
Thomas Popowich S7 can convert to 4k 360 video, while S6 only full hd. Picture quality is the same.
Andreas Tichon S7 will be stitching videos in 4K, but you should prefer to use desktop software for stitching, anyway (NOT Action Director) ;-)

Ryan Ouellette Yeah I hear ya, getting the psvr was a big deal for me because of the price, but I decided I'm really committed to making my site and pages a success. If you are interested in reviewing we can discuss details more privately but the basics are as follows ...
David Hall I love testing out products. I only have the Gear VR at the moment though. Really debating on another system, just the $$$.

Wtf... best thing so far.. makes sisters look like a kids app... the bedroom... wow..

Stephen Lange I played this last night. It made me jump back so abruptly that my headboard put a dent in my wall. This is an outstanding app. 5 stars!
David Hall I downloaded it last night as well. Have not made it through both scenarios yet and the fact they have "coming soon" on two more doors is promising. I do love this type of content though.
Andreas Tichon Thanks guys, will check them out! :-)
Mark Rowland Just tried this, good fun and gave me jelly legs
