Polaroid Cube+ review

 

Polaroid got a lot of attention last year for its Cube camera , a $100 (£90, AU$170) tiny square weatherproof camera that is little more than a lens with a power/record button on top and a magnet on the bottom for popping it onto a metal surface for...

The Polaroid Cube+ has the same supersmall lightweight design and ease of use as the original Cube, but with its wireless capabilities you can actually see what you're shooting by connecting to a smartphone or tablet. Video and photo features improve...

Video and photo quality, though better than the original Cube, is still just OK, best suited for viewing at small sizes, such as on a smartphone. Integrated battery means you'll have to recharge or connect to a power source to keep shooting.

The Polaroid Cube+ keeps all the good stuff from the original Cube -- namely its design, simple operation and reasonable price -- but the added wireless definitely makes it a better camera worthy of the extra cost.

Polaroid Cube+ review

  (Rating Hidden)

An update to the original Cube (released in 2014), the Polaroid Cube+ is a compact action camera that is simple to operate, has built-in wi-fi and is available for a reasonable price. Polaroid gained a lot of attention when it first released the Cube,...

Polaroid Cube + Review

 

We take a look at the Polaroid Cube+ action cam that also takes 8mp stills.

Great looking compact design ; 8 megapixel stills ability ; App allows remote controlling of camera ; Magnet is useful for sticking camera to a surface

Image quality isn't great ; Video often underexposes and blows out the sky ; No mount included in box ; Short battery life ; Rubber casing makes camera point to floor when worn around neck

Some may look at the Polaroid Cube+ and wonder where it fits into the action camera market, as no real usable mount is included in the box. The built in magnet is handy for sticking the cube at a set point for stills images and capturing things going...

Consumer review (argos.co.uk)

Neat little camera, pretty good for the price.

 

I really like the form factor of the cube+ which was one of my main reasons for buying it. With the included rubber case it can easily be thrown around and used in many situations. Video and audio quality is reasonable, built in stabilisation is great,...
