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

 

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 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.

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....

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 (2017)

 

Google Daydream View 2 (2017) review: Price, release date and compatible phones for Google second edition virtual reality headset

Comfortable and compact ; Google's wealth of content ; Works with more phones now

Slightly fuzzy picture ; Pricier than before ; Not much of a jump forward

A comfortable, easy-to-use headset – but not a huge leap forward.

Google Daydream View Review: In Depth

 

Google Daydream View Review: A significant improvement on Google cardboard, does the Daydream View have the potential to change the face of mobile VR?

Attractive design ; Affordable ; Comfortable ; Motion controls on mobile ; Low power consumption ; Easy setup

Prone to gapping and light leak ; Requires frequent recalibration/orientation ; Only works with Pixel and Pixel XL at launch ; FOV could be wider

Google’s Daydream View is an imperfect, but excellent second-generation mobile VR offering. The company has been able to leverage a sizeable pre-existing body of content as well as attract a vibrant and fast-growing developer community who are proving...

Google Daydream View review

 

For use with its new Pixel phones (and more soon), we tried out Google's first Daydream VR headset. Here's our Google Daydream View review.

You'll need a Daydream VR compatible phone but the Daydream View VR headset is certainly an accomplished device. Its attractive style is complimented by a comfortable fit, although an over the top strap might be an oversight for more energetic tasks....

Google Daydream review: The easiest-to-use VR headset yet is only $79

 

For $79, £69 or AU$119, the Daydream View turns the Google Pixel phone into a capable entry-level VR headset -- with caveats.

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.
