Poll: do you care about 360-degree cameras?
One of the Essential Phone's special features is its module port — you've got a magnetic connector on the back, which will accept Essential accessories with a click. And, at launch, we've got two of those — a 360-degree camera and a charging dock.
So, about that former accessory — the company definitely makes a big deal out of it. It's portable, it doesn't need a battery as it is powered by the phone, it's supposed to be high-quality, and will only set you back an extra $50 if you order it with the Phone right now. Mr. Rubin and co. talk the camera up enthusiastically. And while we agree that it looks like an awesome little gadget, we are still unsure whether users care about 360-degree footage all that much.
Last year, we ran a poll to ask what you think about spherical cameras. We thought we'd redo it and see how people feel them now, a year after. Well... vote ahead!
