Hands on: Samsung Gear VR (S6) review

 

Smaller, lighter... but exactly the same

Smaller design ; VR is just awesome

Still bulky ; Expensive

Samsung Gear VR review: Days of Future Past

 

VR, or virtual reality, 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, it's Korean giant Samsung that's now here to, well, try and sell some more...

Wire-free VR experience unlike its rivals, optical adjustment, easy to setup and use, some fun experiences on offer

Limited software, Note 4 compatible only, image edge blur, limited equivalent resolution, joypad not included, may cause nausea

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

Hands-on: Samsung Gear VR review: Immersive headset requires a Galaxy Note 4 to function - Pocket-lint

 

The Samsung Gear VR is not like other virtual reality headsets. Unlike Oculus Rift or Sony Morpheus, the Gear VR doesn't come with any display built-in

Samsung Gear VR

 

Samsung has made a habit of giving its Gear VR headset minor updates with every flagship phone launch. And it's done the same for the new Galaxy S8 and S8+ – although not a whole lot has changed.

For anyone interested in purchasing a VR headset and who's already a Samsung flagship owner, the Gear VR is a no-brainer. It's easy to use and the content selection keeps growing. There's plenty of appeal here.

Samsung Gear VR Innovator Edition review

 

Oculus Rift + Galaxy Note 4 = portable VR perfection? Not quite yet [UPDATED 11/02/15 with more app info]

Delivers a strong VR experience ; Comfortable to wear ; Free apps and videos

Very limited supply of content right now ; Expensive when you factor in a Note 4 and gamepad

It’ll wow VR newbies, but the lack of content and the overall price make the Gear VR a niche product
