Here a quick Test of a „7 Gopro Rig“ vs „Gear 360“.

Play it in 4k to see the difference.
Same scene recorded at Lago d´Iseo/Italy. 7 Gopro looks sharper, have a look at the water and the mountain in the background, but the price for 7 gopros with camera rig without stitching software is 10/1 compared to gear 360.

I think the gear 360 is a cool thing for shooting on the road. Stitching+Sharpness is not really well but you have no postproduction. Really good for action, document and filming on the road. For better quality in a payable price zone you still need the gopros.
