Samsung Orb coming to Samsung Galaxy S IV for 360 degree photos?
0. phoneArena 22 Feb 2013, 08:31 posted on
An unnamed software engineer who claims to be working on the Samsung Galaxy S IV is singing like a bird and is talking about a feature on the upcoming flagship device that is called "Samsung Orb" and is similar to the 360 degree Photosphere feature that is available for those models running on Android 4.2; the pictures are said to look almost three-dimensional...

Lol if this is Sammy's idea of innovation, then they are headed down the path like apple....it's called jelly bean 4.2 ...not particularly new Sammy....

If I was to choose a phone TODAY.. the gnote 2 or the gs3 over the htc one. Just wasnt that impressive.

I'd pick Xperia Z over any other phone, even if the GS4 comes out.
29. kclgphilsbsa (Posts: 765; Member since: 21 Jan 2013)
then pick it up :D
its ur choice
but HTC One is smarter than XZ atliz in ds cases> screen, UI, audio quality, look, maybe the camera(well we are yet to see comparisons, so just "maybe"), processor

Sadly true, sucks for HTC. Everybody in the market for a new phone will be suggested the Note2 or the S3, i5 if the buyer wanted a small phone.

i myself is thinking of the note2 rather than htc One coz im still after touchwiz and the spen and reliable camera.. the videos taken by gs3 and note2 are of d best quality right now.. the images are not the best but theyr one of the best :D

Bollocks... Like that's something new? It's Sphere and it's in ther Android camera. And HTC One takes 360 photos as well as far as I know.

Rebranded software. Just like android beam was to s beam.

is tht innovation? seems to me tht its just a case of brandin differently. not so much difference btw samsung and apple now
18. maccess (Posts: 742; Member since: 16 Jan 2013)
did samsung ever said that's an innovation like apple did with their product??
20. faisal8708 (Posts: 104; Member since: 15 Nov 2011)
they did tht with smart stay and if not why rebrand it
21. Klamba92 (Posts: 210; Member since: 25 Jun 2012)
I don't know about you but smart stay is one of my favourite features along with the camera and multi window on my galaxy s3. I love smart stay so much that I got it on my nexus 7 as well. So its a great feature for me better innovation than apple IMO! However I did say my next phone will be a Nexus or the Motorola X phone.

u havnt seen the whole feature yet.. samsung claimed it to be more advanced than the photosphere, so lets just wait if it really does, and when it doesnt hen thats d ryt time to call it w/o innovation
15. draconic1991 (Posts: 195; Member since: 27 Apr 2012)

22. Klamba92 (Posts: 210; Member since: 25 Jun 2012)
Well it will get photosphere when its gets updated to 4.2 it it gets updated that is!
38. draconic1991 (Posts: 195; Member since: 27 Apr 2012)

31. kclgphilsbsa (Posts: 765; Member since: 21 Jan 2013)
thats an open feature for all android, it is just the way you make it smarter dude..

HTC just needs to improve battery life then put a MicroSD Slot on there Flagship Devices and it'd be better then Samsung and Apple will continue being made for Women
35. Berzerk000 (Posts: 4275; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
The One has a bigger battery than the DNA with a smaller screen, less intensive UI, more efficient processor, and probably a few added software tweaks for battery enhancement; I think that will add up to great battery life.
Also, does someone really need a micro SD card slot for a phone that has 32 and 64 GB options? Only if they're in the 1% of all the smartphone users in the world who actually do use more than that, and no manufacturer is trying to appease the 1% of consumers when the 99% are already happy with the existing amount of memory.

Very very much, an sd card is portable flexible not only keeps data but a good way to share and transfer bulk data. Also for the phone's security some data may be too risky to stay on the p phone directly. Don't you wonder why they sell 40 m with a phone so called ugly? (though I don't really understand why guys say that, you want a beautiful phone, your girl?
