Gole360 is a great made a 360 degree panorama camera, with good quality plastic in a stylish golden color, which gives the whole device elegance. The quality of the device is really good. On the back is a power button and wide angle camera.
At the bottom of the device there is a reset hole, USB 2.0 TYPE-C port for charging, and a micro SD slot.
On the front side you will find: another wide angle camera, and protruding micro USB connector for connection to a smartphone and also two LEDs: blue for recording status, orange and green for power and charging status.
On one side among the microphone.
For testing I used LG K10. Application can be downloaded from Google Play – GOLE360 app. The APK just suit for Android smartphone, can not install others’ OS mobile phone. After installing the application, you turn it on, press the on / off on the back of the housing. Start the application. To connect the camera to the smartphone need to turn on tethering via USB. Here are a few screenshots from the smartphone.
Unfortunately, the application requires a better translation into English, most functions in the Chinese language. Below is an overview settings.
Gole360 has several modes: Flat mode, Sphere mode, VR mode, Planet mode. Below screenshots.
Captured photos and videos can be easily shared. Below also other screenshots. You can also compare images enabled E feature and without (brightening).
