Another Android 4.3 bonus: better Photospheres
0. phoneArena 25 Jul 2013, 17:55 posted on
One of our favorite features of Android is Photosphere imaging. Let's face it, panoramas are what your parents used to shoot, and Photospheres are flat out better. It's a 360 degree photo, there isn't much to dislike about that. Of course, Photospheres were a bit tough to master in Android 4.2, but they have gotten a big boost in Android 4.3...

Yes! This is why we love Google: doing really something for people!
We will use android more so they will profit from these things a little later so good even for Google :-)

It does not capture the bottom and up part, so it ramains 2 circles on each place, have you ever used photosphere?

I just figured it out, I have a Galaxy Nexus, so I am able to use the photospere mode way before, so on JB 4.2 actually there were 2 circles in the upper and botton part of the picture, now, on 4.3 version google has adjusted this part so there is no more hole in the pic.

If you consider the way they're viewed the center where you are would be hard to put in the image so its left as black hole

I'm gonna try this after flashing the factory image. I usually need a rotating chair to take perfect photosphere, I hope I won't need to after this :D

It's a bummer that the Galaxy S series doesn't have Photo-Sphere even though it should...

Wow great feature, and those two holes also in which one is big and other is small.
