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 Pros and cons: Our quick verdict on Google's Daydream View

 

The Daydream View is a solid first attempt at a mobile VR headset. It's comfortable and VR experiences look great. The only problem is there aren't many apps available for it yet.

Inexpensive ; Comfortable ; Motion controller makes VR immersive ; High-quality VR experiences

Not many apps yet ; More Daydream phones are coming, but aren’t here yet

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 ( $289.78 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...

Google Daydream View review

 

The Daydream View is the most comfortable choice for jumping into high-quality virtual reality content.

Daydream content is high-quality ; Remote has a long battery life and is ergonomic ; Daydream View is comfortable to wear ; Easy to use ; Affordable

Phone gets hot fast ; Light can leak into headset, for some users ; Only compatible with Pixel and Pixel XL right now

Daydream View is the best mobile virtual reality experience you can get right now, but of course, you’ll need a compatible phone. If you have a Pixel, or if your device becomes Daydream-ready via a software update, we believe the View is worth the $79....

Our Google Daydream View VR headset Review opens the door to a new era in Google's mobile VR game, starting with Pixel. The first phones that work with Daydream are the Google Pixel and the Google Pixel XL, both of which are available at the same...

The Google Daydream View headset and controller are two parts of a future I’m glad to be a part of. With it, I’m able to see new environments and play games that defy traditional notions of what computers are able to be for their users. I’m also able...

Google Daydream View VR headset Review

 

Ever since humanity first developed the moving picture, we've been trying to create more and more immersive experiences. Sound and color sure helped a lot, but for all the advancements that have come since, we've been stuck in this rut where it still...

Smooth, detailed 3D environments look great ; Wireless controller adds enormously to the immersive VR experience ; Auto-screen-centering makes setup easy ; Comfortable to wear (and easy to clean) ; Early app selection is promising

Controller drift is a real problem ; Limited phone compatibility at the moment ; Headset design almost feels too simple ; Difficult to use with big glasses

Review: Google Daydream View
