Google Daydream View (2017)

 

Google Daydream View 2 (2017) review: Price, release date and compatible phones for Google second edition virtual reality headset

Comfortable and compact ; Google's wealth of content ; Works with more phones now

Slightly fuzzy picture ; Pricier than before ; Not much of a jump forward

A comfortable, easy-to-use headset – but not a huge leap forward.

Google Daydream View (2017) review: New looks and lenses, but no new tricks

 

Want to try VR but don't want to break the bank? Look no further. With the new Daydream View, you get a comfortable fit, sleek-looking headset, and

Affordable and easy-to-use access point into VR (if you have the right phone) ; Comfortable fit beyond any competitor ; Decent array of titles (affordable if not free) ; Noticeable upgrades over original (top strap ; Fresnel lenses ; And larger field...

Only 12 Android phones compatible for time being ; Lack of iOS support ; Needs more experiences to truly thrive ; Will soon compete with wireless ; Fully tracked headsets

So, should you buy it?

Google Daydream View review: Google’s Pixel-perfect Gear VR rival gets a 2017 facelift

 

Google's Daydream View is the perfect accessory for your new Pixel 2 or Pixel 2 XL, and it's seen a 2017 update

Soft, comfy design

Not particularly secure on your face ; Right now there's a severe lack of 'must-have' apps

In its defence, though, the Daydream VR platform is in its infancy right now, and in a couple of months its app support will be vastly superior to what's on offer right now, so watch this space: in 2017, Daydream VR could well become the mobile headset...

Google Daydream View review

 

For use with its new Pixel phones (and more soon), we tried out Google's first Daydream VR headset. Here's our Google Daydream View review.

You'll need a Daydream VR compatible phone but the Daydream View VR headset is certainly an accomplished device. Its attractive style is complimented by a comfortable fit, although an over the top strap might be an oversight for more energetic tasks....

Google Daydream View review

 

Cardboard is cheap. Gear VR only works with Samsung phones. The pricy Oculus Rift ( £400.00 at Amazon.co.uk ) and HTC Vive ( £649.99 at Amazon.co.uk ) require an expensive gaming PC and loads of setup, and the PlayStation VR ( £259.00 at Amazon.co.uk )...

Affordable, portable and easy to set up. The bundled motion controller is convenient and easy to use. Exclusive YouTube, Google Street View and Google Photos feel like potential killer apps.

It only works with Google Pixel and Moto Z for now (more on the way). The headset is front-heavy and frequently needs adjusting. There's limited app selection at launch and you can't walk around or grab things in VR.

The Daydream View is the simplest, most affordable way to turn a phone into an immersive VR headset.

Daydream View review: Google's 2017 version is a modest improvement

 

Google Daydream View is more than a mere accessory, and now it's getting a facelift for 2017

With the Cardboard, Google took a knowingly anti-tech approach to VR, and this attitude continues with a headset that feels more like an item of clothing than a holster for expensive hardware. It works. The Daydream View makes pivoting into virtual...

Google Daydream View (2016) review

  (Rating Hidden)

The first iteration of Google's VR headset signalled it's involved in the world of virtual reality, and although it's been superseded, the original is still available with decent discounts on offer. Is it still worth buying, and how does it compare...

Google Daydream View review: Is this VR headset the answer to accessible virtual reality?

 

The Samsung Gear VR has been the driving force for portable, accessible VR in recent years. Not anymore. The Google Daydream View has it beat on all fronts, apart from the one that really matters: content. Having ditched the plastic for softer, more...

Google Daydream View (2017) review

 

Google 2017 Daydream View headset greatly improves upon last year's model with better build quality, less light-leaking, and a snugger fit. It's still one of the comfiest VR headsets around.

Almost no light leak, wider field of view ; Comfortable design, snug fit ; Simple software and set up ; Improved Daydream catalog

No iOS support ; Still needs more fun content

Google’s latest Daydream View headset greatly improves upon last year’s model with better build quality, less light-leaking, and a snugger fit. It’s still one of the comfiest VR headsets available, and the Daydream platform has grown considerably.
