What is special about the Samsung Gear 360 VR Camera?

The Samsung Gear 360 VR Camera came out two years ago. When it did, it tapped into a market that was emerging - virtual reality. Just like with any new technological gear presenting innovative tech, the Gear 360 VR camera had its drawbacks. Samsung experienced fierce competition from established products such as the GoPro or Sony. But it is good for consumers as they get the best product possible at the most affordable price.


The price of the original Gear 360 Camera VR was at $349. The 2017 edition dropped the price to $86.95. Now the 2017 edition of the Gear 360 4K VR camera dropped its price from $229 to $164, which is a significant decrease making it available to the masses now.
