Google Daydream View

 

Google Daydream View – and the Daydream platform it's built upon – is the natural successor to Google Cardboard.

A comfortable, easy-to-use headset – it's the next step in mobile VR.

Daydream View review: A mobile VR headset you'll actually want to wear

 

It's comfortable and capable. Google's Daydream View VR headset is a hit.

Comfortable ; Intuitive​ ; Good 'experiences'

Dust on lens ; Not as capable as 'proper' VR ; Questions about durability

Google Daydream View review: A Pixel-perfect VR experience?

 

Google has a mobile virtual reality platform, Daydream, which now has a headset to go with it. It's called Daydream View. One point to make is that Daydream View isn't going to be the only Daydream-compatible headset. Other manufacturers may release...

Affordable and easy-to-use access point into VR (if you have the right phone), comfortable fit beyond any competitor, decent array of day one titles (again, affordable if not free)

Only Google Pixel phones compatible for time being, can slip down due to lack of overhead strap, needs more titles to truly thrive

One point to make is that Daydream View isn't going to be the only Daydream-compatible headset. Other manufacturers may release their own versions based on Google's reference design in the coming months. They'll be similar to Daydream View in that...

Google Daydream View review

 

A sexier, streamlined alternative to Cardboard with plenty of potential

Clever controller opens up more VR possibilities ; Should eventually support loads of phones ; The price is right

Limited app and phone support at launch ; Headset lets in quite a bit of light

Even with limited app and phone support at launch, Google’s second stab at VR has serious potential

Google Daydream View review

 

Android VR becomes a reality, and it's super cheap

Very inexpensive VR headset ; Comes with a remote control ; Fabric design and flashy colors

Content is just getting started ; Light bleeding is a problem ; Phone runs hot, slows down

It's easy to get sucked into virtual reality with Google Daydream View. It's poised to work with more Android phones than any other VR platform, and it's very inexpensive. Of course, it needs more engaging content before it's worth purchasing.

Google Daydream View Review: In Depth

 

Google Daydream View Review: A significant improvement on Google cardboard, does the Daydream View have the potential to change the face of mobile VR?

Attractive design ; Affordable ; Comfortable ; Motion controls on mobile ; Low power consumption ; Easy setup

Prone to gapping and light leak ; Requires frequent recalibration/orientation ; Only works with Pixel and Pixel XL at launch ; FOV could be wider

Google’s Daydream View is an imperfect, but excellent second-generation mobile VR offering. The company has been able to leverage a sizeable pre-existing body of content as well as attract a vibrant and fast-growing developer community who are proving...

Google Daydream review: The easiest-to-use VR headset yet is only $79

 

For $79, £69 or AU$119, the Daydream View turns the Google Pixel phone into a capable entry-level VR headset -- with caveats.

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.

Review: Google Daydream View VR headset

 

2016 is truly the year that Virtual Reality (VR) breaks into mainstream consumer consciousness with products like the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR being made available with game support in many markets.

Daydream VR is one of the easiest and most affordable tools to get into VR today provided you have a smartphone that can support it. While it may not offer the detail and graphics horsepower of more expensive VR platforms, it does a lot to democratize...
