With all these specifications it was definitely worth taking a closer look at this camera. Here are some things to consider:

Pros

  • Well stocked accessory kit with lots of mounts
  • Easy to use, very intuitive
  • Controlled by smart phone or tablet through WiFi
  • Waterproof and Shockproof
  • 4 recording modes – panorama, circular, hemispherical, segmentation
  • Great Low Price
  • Sleek Construction
  • Lightweight

Cons

  • Weak WiFi is not meant for long range communication, stay within three feet of a smart device to control the camera
  • No software available to view on a computer
  • 1280 X 1024 resolution is not high definition; it won’t show great detail
  • Images are distorted at the edge of the panorama
  • Battery life is short if you are outside all day
  • Sound quality is tinny
  • Color range is not good indoors with incandescent light
  • Soocoo GVT360i app does not work with all phones
  • Poor app support if you have trouble downloading to your device
  • TS recording format can NOT convert to a file that YouTube accepts; will need someone to come up with conversion software

All in all the Cube360 is not a bad camera. Considering all the accessories that come with it, you do get your money’s worth. You get an adequate camera for the price. It will get the job done, but it is not great. It is also not high def.

If you are someone who likes to show off on YouTube, or you think you want to start your own channel there, then this is not the camera for you. If you are a backyard enthusiast who just wants to have some everyday fun, or if you are a weekend warrior who wants something that will stand up to your abuse, then the Cube360 will work for you.
