Samsung Gear VR Controller review

 

The most popular mobile VR headset has a controller to call its own

Comfortable, one-handed remote ; New motion controls are promising

Not a two-handed full controller ; Requires two AAA batteries

The Samsung Gear VR Controller finally brings a gamepad to the popular virtual reality headset, and it's better late than never. It includes all of the buttons that are mounted to the side of the headset, so you're no longer tapping your temple to move...

Samsung Gear VR Consumer Edition review: The stepping-stone to Oculus proper

 

Virtual reality, often known as VR, has a long and winding history. From the distant dream of Sega's VR, unveiled back in 1993, to the modern day it's-almost-here reality of Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and PlayStation VR, it's South Korean giant Samsung...

Wire-free VR experience unlike its rivals, more affordable than earlier Gear VR models, new design benefits glasses wearers, easy to setup and use, fun experiences on offer

Tied to phone hardware, lower refresh and perceptible resolution than Oculus/competition, may cause nausea, still limited range of content/games

The first time we slipped the Gear VR on and looked around a whole virtual world, head turning to take in what was to the side and behind, part of us was impressed with the sheer spectacle. It's quite amazing.

Samsung Gear VR review: a must have for Galaxy phone owners

 

High quality, Oculus Rift-powered VR for £80 or $99 has got to be a deal, right?

Cheap ; Decent variety of content ; Solid VR experience all round

Samsung only ; Graphics lack a certain polish ; Bit of a battery burner

Samsung Gear VR review

 

Bringing proper virtual reality to the Samsung phone-owning masses

Gorgeous, immersive games ; Mostly comfortable fit ; Cheap... if you have the phone

Limited phone compatibility ; No positional tracking ; Rare performance/heat issues

It has limitations, but the Gear VR really delivers on the promise and power of virtual reality.

Samsung Gear VR Innovator Edition

 

With the full consumer launch of the big boys in VR on the imminent horizon, it's depressing how many mobile virtual reality headsets there are on the market right now. And all of them are damaging what is still very much a fledgling product market.

Completely wireless design ; Powered by Oculus VR ; Great head tracking ; Improved content range

Only compatible with Samsung Galaxy S6/S6 Edge ; Content still limited ; Full game content expensive

For anyone interested in purchasing a VR headset who's already a Samsung flagship owner, the Gear VR is a no-brainer. It's easy to use and the content selection has grown. It still has some growing to do, but there's plenty of appeal here.

Samsung Gear VR review - Innovator Edition for S6

 

Initially brilliant and breathtaking but limited content makes the Gear VR a novelty for now

Why Samsung's freebie Gear VR gives it a huge head start

 

Samsung's VR tech is now hugely tempting, but the content still isn't compelling enough

Minecraft on Gear VR is beautiful and immersive... but it made us sick

 

It's got potential, though.

Samsung Gear VR

 

How can a smartphone deliver a visual experience that is bigger and more impressive than the best 3D cinemas, and a gaming experience, which is more epic than any PC and game console can deliver? Let me just admit straight away that my expectations for...

Good UI ; Selection of app/games ; Good picture quality ; Quite immersive ; Mobility ; Price

360 video is low-resolution ; Gamepad sold separately ; No positional tracking

I was one of the doubters when Oculus VR announced that they would make a mobile VR headset together with Samsung. I was afraid that it would distract Oculus from making the Oculus Rift the best it could be, especially because John Carmack was hired to...
