Oculus Go review: Finally, cheap and easy VR for everyone

 

The Oculus Go is the virtual reality headset we've been waiting for -- not because it's incredibly powerful, but because it's inexpensive and easy to use. You won't need to give up your phone or have a powerful computer to get this up and running. It's...

Comfortable and easy to use ; Inexpensive compared to other VR headsets ; Large library of VR apps ; Remote is comfortable with accurate motion tracking

Still a bit limited by its mobile hardware ; Battery life could be better

Notches, drones, VR vacation spots? Oh you!

Oculus Go hands-on review

 

The Oculus Go is clearly a step forward for accessible, mobile virtual reality.

Completely untethered ; Good value ; Fits comfortably ; Impressive app selection

Doesn’t support 6 degrees of freedom ; Battery is limited

Oculus Go

 

The Oculus Go is an affordable, comfortable standalone virtual reality headset that lets you try out VR without making a big investment in hardware.

Relatively affordable. No phone, PC, or game system required. Cable-free. Crisp, fluid display.

Doesn't track position. Just one motion controller. Underpowered compared with tethered and flagship smartphone-powered headsets. Limited software library.

Bottom Line: The Oculus Go is an affordable, comfortable standalone virtual reality headset that lets you try out VR without making a big investment in hardware.

Oculus Go, reviewed: The best $199 VR

 

The first standalone VR system has arrived, no phone required. Here's our first week with one.

A completely self-contained, standalone, no-phone-or-PC-necessary VR system. Comfortable design and feel. Sharp-looking display and effective built-in speakers with spatial audio. Hundreds of apps. Oculus setup app works with iOS and Android phones....

Two-hour battery life. It's a sit-down experience (no room tracking). No expandable storage. No kid-safe settings. Lacks multiple account options.

Oculus Go is VR for the masses: A self-contained, standalone virtual reality headset that's portable, affordable and delivers a great experience for the price.

The Oculus Go improves mobile VR, but there’s still a long way to go

 

It still has the basic shortcomings of phone-based VR.

Works without a phone or computer ; Low-key but solid hardware ; Reasonable price

Limited motion tracking ; App ecosystem is still iffy ; Bulky and silly-looking — like every VR headset

The Oculus Go makes improvements to the Gear VR, but its biggest achievement is just making mobile VR content easier to access. It’s a reasonably priced device that doesn’t require having a specific phone, doesn’t force you to clumsily lock that phone...

Oculus Go Review: So Simple, So Great

 

Be cautious when you see the headlines for this device - most people want to say one of two things. One, this is the device that will bring VR mainstream! Two, this device isn't any different than any smartphone VR system, and isn't worth your time....

Finally, a decent all-in-one mobile VR device ; Comfortable to wear ; Speakers are surprisingly strong ; Software runs smooth and quick ; An abundance of high-end apps and games available

User must stay in one place (no room-scale VR) ; Only comes in gray ; Controller requires AA-battery ; Uses micro-USB instead of USB-C ; Requires smartphone for set-up

Oculus Go Review: The First Stand-Alone VR Headset Is a Winner

 

Think of Oculus Go as Rift 1.5. At its core, the Go is a stopgap measure as we wait for Oculus to launch Project Santa Cruz , which combines the cordless all-in-one goodness of the Go with the positional tracking and room-scale abilities of the Rift....

Completely wireless ; Sleek minimalist design ; Large library of apps and games ; Crisp details and vibrant colors with minimal motion blur

Some smartphone reliance ; Lacks room-tracking capability

The Oculus Go offers a cordless, all-in-one VR for under $200 with a robust catalog of apps and games.

Oculus Go Review

 

The Oculus Go is hands down, the best mobile VR headset that you can get if you are looking for an introduction to VR. This standalone headset is incredibly easy to use and doesn't rely on a fancy gaming computer or the latest and greatest smartphone...

Extremely easy to use, exceptionally user-friendly, very visually immersive

Experiences more limited than tethered headsets
