    Very easy to use. Compact. Decent video quality. Fun. Great for what I do with it. Which is just shooting overhead cooking videos stuck with the magnet. Negative: Too simple, but you get what you pay for. Battery life isn't really long enough sometimes. Can't see what you're exactly aiming at with no lcd. But overall its a great little cam and I will continue using it often. Definitely get it if budget is an issue. I would also recommend getting the tripod mount accessory, it opens up a wide variety of other accessories you can use like gopro stuff. Just mount the tripod adapter on to a gopro adaptor and you're on your way.

    This little action cam works pretty good at its price. Nice package and good picture quality. However it seems that the 720p setting produces a better video than 1080p still not bad. This isn't a GoPro. Battery life is only around an hour, but given the size that is ok, but charging takes over 8 hrs. The Mac OS doesn't even run so a PC is currently needed to change the cameras settings for sound chirping.

    Bought this for my teenage son to use while riding and doing BMX tricks. He found a lot of accessories at Best Buy and on amazon to use for different stunts. The video it takes is crisp and clear! Once he read the directions and watched a few how to videos he said it was easy to use! You will need to get a micro sd card to use with it and there is a specific range it recommends for that....so be sure to check that before purchasing one!

    Fun and easy to use. Unique angle for pictures because you kind of "shoot from the hip" due to not having a viewfinder. I modified my small gorilla style tripod to take advantage of the cameras small powerful magnet, and it can sit just about anywhere (dash when driving on twisty mountain roads) to get fun video. I think I might get another.

    I've had one of these for about 2 weeks now and I have had a lot of fun with it. The wide angle is great and the fact that it is so small is very nice. I do wish that more applications supported the sound on the video files but I can work around that. Great little point and shoot for the price.

    The magnet is probably the coolest thing about this action cam. The picture is great but the battery isn’t. I also dislike that you can only record 5 minute clips. Makes for a headache when you want to video edit.

    Perfect image and take excellent pictures. The only thing that could be improved is the night footage. When filming with low light the image is not that perfect. But in normal conditions it is awesome for the price we paid. Very fair price for a very fair product.

    If you're on a budget and looking to get something small and compact, this is what you have been looking for, the picture, sound and video quality is amazing seeing that is comes from something so small, definitely worth buying.

    Action cameras don't get much smaller, lighter or more eye-catching than the Polaroid Cube, with its lens and electronics packed inside a tiny cube-shaped body only one and a half inches on each side. It's only 45g in weight, yet it still shootsFull Review
