The app has stopped working with the note 8 although it connects on Bluetooth it will not get any live feed. Whilst it attempts to connect the buttons on the camera won't function until it times out trying to connect. I've reinstalled and repaired no difference. Got my note 5 back out of the cupboard and it works fine. Samsung sort it out!

BE SURE TO DISCONNECT FROM VPN IF YOU ARE USING VPN AND HAVE HANGING ISSUES! Figured out my Note 8 hanging issue when trying to live record or view recordings in the app. Issue will occur when connected to HMA VPN, works fine disconnected. App must be connecting to the Gear 360 via Wifi and not just Bluetooth. Emailed Devs recommending they add a note about that. Will upgrade to 4 or 5 stars if they do.

I installed this in my Note8 and it was working very well. Then a firmware upgrade for my camera showed up. After that installed it barely keeps connection to the phone, the gallery on the camera won't show nor the live feed, made it basically worthless. I hope this gets fixed asap. If I'd of known I wouldn't have installed the update, expected more from Samsung. To clarify, the Bluetooth connection is OK, but it won't connect the Wi-Fi, and I know this was part of the update because it said so in the release notes.

I got it. It worked for 1 day. It stopped connecting to the note 8 and powered off by itself. Charged fully, and reset, still wouldn't work , again and again and again no go. I was sent to 6 different Samsung people and have no clue if they're going to replace this defective 360 camera. I loved it, when it worked, it was great when it worked. It sucks now that it doesn't. I'm impressed and extremely disappointed

Ever since most recent update, I can't even get past initially pairing the device to my GS7Edge. It just shuts down. Every single time, without fail. Have been unable to use my camera for 2 weeks now... Have filled in the app crash feedback multiple times. Very poor.

Was working but stopped for some reason. The device is doing what it needs to do (connecting, capturing..) but the app is not. It simply says "Error occurred. Try again". Samsung website does not indicate that the Gear 360 is compatible with the Note 8, maybe that's the problem but it initially worked.

Doesn't connect with my note 8. Brand new phone, brand new keeps timing out and shuts off when I try to use the camera. Unbelievable... and from what I see from reviews several people have same issue and all they keep saying is email support..... please give a legitimate solution because a lot of people are having THE SAME ISSUE

Glad I didn't spend money on this thing. Will take pics and videos, but I can't save them to my Note 8 or play videos the app says they are there but when I click on them to look or watch I just watch a loading circle. Has also froze my phone on a few occasions. So it's pretty much a high tech paper weight. I think this will be the end of a long relationship with Samsung, first all there new phones are only available with the edge design which don't last and now a camera I can't use

Old app worked. Rear camera not working since updated to this new app. (might be hardware issue but no damage visible on camera? Using Korea 360 cam with removable tripod. When switching to rear camera only mode then device freezes and all device buttons become unresponsive. Device becomes responsive after pulling battery out.)

Really like working with the application off of a tripod. Don't need timer, can walk away out of image. However I can not work through the street view app with the camera (2017) model. Might just be me not being as smart as the technology

Keeps crashing the camera. Large video is almost imposible to transfer. The camera locks and the software looses communication. Tried many things and still doesn't work. There is no crash error so if i get the copy paste reply from Samsung i am not sure what good it would do to contact support. Needs fixing fast. Old app was stable.
