    It does take forever, but you don't need to do the entire sphere. I've used it twice and both came out pretty good actually. You just have to take your time

    Coming straight from the cave dwelling era, I thought it was pretty good. Depends what you were expecting.
    I have mine a short while.

    I could rotate it around on a computer screen. I don't know how long it took to rotate the 3 times I've used it, I just figured the slower the better. If it EVER stops raining this year I can use it more.

    There are probably better 360 phone cameras out there, but I don't mind if its not the best.

    (I don't yet know if you can upload it to someone to give the same effect.)

    I tried it and I thought it was pretty cool. I did it very quickly so it was far from perfect but I thought it was a cool way to show a 360 view.

    It's pretty amazing imo.
    Does a great job, and is great for sharing experiences and places with others.
    Unfortunately you have to send them to Google + to view it.
    Also makes for a nice wallpaper, works with photosphere live wallpaper apps too but gets dizzying!

    I got it wrong.
    I was talking about panorama mode earlier. I found that other spherical mode today. Anyone else get them mixed up? kj11 knew what I think the OP meant.

    Yep, 2 different things, panorama is great and easy to use. Surround shot has a higher degree of difficulty, but good results if you have 5 minutes to invest in taking a picture

    EDITED:

    I only just tried to look at that one surround shot I took 3 days ago on my phone. I always uploaded panoramic mode 360 shots to my pc and scrolled across them on the larger screen.

    I was very impressed that the phone motors the shot around to the right when you open it. I have now discovered panorama shots do the same if you touch its icon.

    I look forward to playing with it more.

    Surround mode results are more immersive than panorama. I still like panorama mode and will use it more.
    Surround does take longer as the OP opined, but it shows you how with targets and with practise will look even more seemless.

    Last point is panorama mode in 35mm and standard digital cameras never did anywhere near 360 mode, 90 - 150 maybe.

    Panorama mode here would have been better termed Surround Mode; and Surround Mode should be Spherical Mode.

    Also check the new thread about writing on the rear of your photos.

    Dicovering many new hidden features.
