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.

Google Daydream View review: mobile VR done mostly right

 

Nearly a year ago, I wrote about a then-new product called the Samsung Gear VR — a mobile phone-powered headset that promised cheap, mainstream virtual reality, but it delivered something I wasn't...

Clever, ergonomic hardware design ; Versatile, convenient controller ; Lots of potential for Android integration

Only compatible with Google Pixel at launch ; Finding the best fit takes time ; Still waiting for killer apps

Google Daydream View review

 

Cardboard is cheap. Gear VR only works with Samsung phones. The pricy Oculus Rift ( $399.00 at Amazon.com ) and HTC Vive ( $599.00 at Amazon.com ) require an expensive gaming PC and loads of setup, and the PlayStation VR ( $224.99 at Amazon.com ) needs...

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.

Google Daydream View

 

Google's Daydream View VR headset is a comfortable gateway to virtual worlds—there just aren't many to visit yet.

More comfortable than other mobile VR headsets. Included remote control is easy to use. Affordable.

Very little hardware and software support so far.

Daydream is the best mobile-phone VR platform so far. But so far, it's a nearly empty platform. It's hard to enjoy a party when nobody else is dancing. And no mobile VR platform holds a candle to PC-based systems like the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive, or...

Aggressively priced ; Extremely comfortable design ; Growing content library with original content ; Accurate, intuitive controllers

Lacks integrated audio ; No voice command

Google Daydream View Review

 

The Daydream View is an excellent mobile VR headset that has a wider set of compatible phones than our top pick

Highly immersive, easy to setup

Not terribly interactive, smaller set of compatible phones

The is a solid, all-around headset that provides a great introduction to VR without a huge investment. It's very easy to use and will work with the flagship phones for most major manufacturers. It's definitely a product to consider.

Google Daydream View Review

 

Google is on the cusp of VR greatness with the Daydream View. Made from comfortable, breathable athleisure, the VR headset is more stylish than any head-mounted display has a right to be. The included controller is intuitive and offers agile, rather...

Comfortable, stylish design ; Extremely affordable ; Controller accurate and intuitive

Not as visually sharp as competition ; Lacks integrated audio

The Google Daydream offers style, comfort and a promising catalog of VR content at an aggressive price.

Review: Google’s Daydream View VR headset is comfy and uncomplicated

 

Just when bigly recent events made you think you must be living in a dream, Google introduces a virtual reality product called Daydream

When it comes to comparing the Daydream View against other products, high-end VR headsets like the HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and PS VR are not the systems to be stacking up against. The more fair comparison is against the host of other slot-in mobile VR...

Google Daydream View Review

 

It's November 10 and Google's Daydream View headset is now available for purchase. I've been able to spend most of the past week with one to familiarize myself with the virtual reality headset and take in some content, like games and other experiences....
