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: Ruined by the Light

Google DayDream View VR headset review (with Google Pixel XL)

 

It's been more than two years since Google showed that you could transform a smartphone into a virtual reality device by placing it in a headset made of nothing more than . Sure, Google Cardboard isn't as powerful or versatile as an expensive VR device...

Daydream View shares some DNA with Google Cardboard, but the headset is more comfortable to wear, sturdier than most Cardboard models, and designed for extended viewing sessions.

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.
