Nexus 4 Photo Sphere
Google has released a Nexus 4 Photo Sphere video on the GoogleNexus YouTube Channel showing the Cheris family taking a Photo Sphere for their Christmas holiday photo. It comes out perfect which is not something I’ve found to be the case with Photo Spheres but I have found some limited success when using the Nexus 4 mounted to a Tripod, I took one at the Australian War Memorial and one out the front of New Parliament House, you can judge them for yourself.

Nexus 4: Holiday Photo Sphere

Daniel Tyson   Ausdroid's Editor in Chief

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Photosphere works on any device that has 4.2. I think that it works great for a first time effort, with updates and development it surely will only get better.

I agree that indoor shots are jaggy, it works best at the moment in an outdoor environment. It certainly does look great.


On my galaxy s 3 running cm10.1 (4.2.1) and no photo sphere yet :/

I love the Nexus 4, but that photosphere thing doesn’t work inside, it cuts off sharp edges, mangles people’s faces, etc…so good luck taking a family photo like that 😉


I am guessing you still need to rotate the camera around its nodal point to avoid parallax errors?


Wow great! I’ll go buy a Nexus 4 right now… DAMN IT GOOGLE
