    Hi all,

    I just got my Gear 360 today, after months of excitement and I'm... well, I'm not wowed so far. (I really thought the picture quality would be far better.)

     

    The current problem I'm having is that while I have recorded 360 videos using the Gear 360 camera - and I can see them on my S7 phone - they don't show up at all in my Gear VR. They have been transferred to my phone, and I can see them in my gallery app, but I can't see them in the 'Samsung Gallery' app, or the '360 Video' app within the Gear VR.

     

    Anybody know what I'm doing wrong?

        The Gear VR software just updated and the videos work now, so that's good.

         

        But they're still not very good quality.

        it's to do with the pixels. 4k on a tv screen is a rectangle, but 360 video is more spread out so slot less pixels. plus phone screen is not 4k either. that's the way I see it could be wrong
