Samsung Gear VR review (2015): A no-brainer if you own a Samsung phone

 

Samsung's Gear VR is the company's first virtual reality headset designed for everyday consumers. For just $99 and a compatible Samsung phone, you can dive into an incredible experience that'll have you watching 360-degree movies and playing super...

Affordable ; Comfortable to wear ; Easy setup ; Wide variety of content

Only compatible with a handful of Samsung phones ; Drains your phone battery ; Not as robust as upcoming PC and console-based VR headsets

If Google Cardboard gives a taste of virtual reality, Samsung's Gear VR offers up a whole feast. With just the addition of a smartphone, you can get a truly immersive VR headset that lets you travel distant lands, watch movies and shoot up spaceships...

Samsung Gear VR review

 

Affordable yet astounding, Samsung's new Gear VR opens immersive virtual-reality worlds.

Only $100 ; Best mobile VR hardware ; Works with all four major Samsung phones ; Fantastic games and apps

Some light bleeds through the edges ; Only available on four Samsung phones

If you own a Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge, S6 Edge Plus, or Note 5, we highly recommend the Gear VR at its new $100 price. Thanks to a fantastic collaboration between Samsung and Oculus, the Gear VR is the best mobile VR experience on planet Earth.

Looking into the future: Samsung Gear VR review

 

Oculus VR and Samsung's Gear VR virtual reality headset is an enticing first taste of the potential future of a new medium. It's light, comfortable and -- most importantly -- accessible. Gear VR is the most usablevirtual reality headset we've ever...

Incredibly accessible ; Light, comfortable, attractive ; Extremely impressive visuals

Limited functionality ; Extremely limited software library ; Requires a Note 4, making it very expensive

Gear VR is a device full of potential. It works! The screen resolution is almost good enough that you don't constantly think about the headset you're wearing! It's light and easy to keep on for long periods! It's not $10,000! The battery life is pretty...

Samsung Gear VR

 

The latest Samsung Gear VR headset lets you experience virtual reality on the Galaxy Note 7, along with most other recent Galaxy smartphones.

Easy setup. Comfortable. Relatively inexpensive.

Not as visually impressive or technically powerful as PC-based headsets. No charging cable included.

Conclusions The new Samsung Gear VR is a functional, accessible, and affordable way to play with VR if you have a compatible Galaxy phone, and anyone with even a passing interest in VR should seriously consider giving it a shot. Outside of the USB-C...

Samsung Gear VR review: Virtual reality for the masses has arrived

 

Affordable virtual reality is here, but you need a Samsung phone to hop aboard.

The Gear VR's relatively low price belies a compelling VR experience, and the games are quickly catching up to the hype. The headset is fairly light, and offers a completely cordless experience.

It only works with some recent Samsung phones. The mobile VR experience still pales in comparison to more robust upcoming PC- and console-based options.

The Gear VR is the best virtual-reality gadget you can buy right now, and a great way to jump into the world of VR gaming and entertainment -- just make sure you own a compatible Samsung phone first.

Samsung Gear VR (2015)

 

If you already have a compatible Samsung Galaxy phone, the Gear VR headset is a well-built, relatively inexpensive way to see if virtual reality is right for you.

Comfortable to wear. Oculus-powered technology is well-developed. Good number of apps available.

Requires one of four specific Samsung Galaxy smartphones. Still no killer app to make virtual reality a must-have. Potential thermal issues.

Ongoing Issues and Conclusions Unfortunately, the Gear VR and the connected Galaxy S6 I was using didn't seem as interested in a prolonged gaming experience as I was. After about 40 minutes, the game stopped and the Gear VR software displayed a warning...

Review: Samsung Gear VR

 

In the space of three and a half years, virtual reality has matured from a long-dead relic of '90s futurism to a platform that's received billions of dollars of funding and attracted the best and brightest minds in the tech world. Three and a half...

An honest-to-goodness VR headset for $100. Works with current-generation Samsung Galaxy phones: Galaxy Note 5, S6 Edge+, S6, and S6 Edge. Tons of content; finding something cool to watch, play, or do isn't a problem. Onboard sensors track movement and...

Battery drain and overheating are still problems. While an improvement over developer versions, could still use some work. Requires a Samsung phone, so iOS and Windows users are out of luck. Don't have a Galaxy phone? Add a few hundred dollars to the...

So yes. Good VR is here. After three and a half years, I can’t believe I’m finally saying it, but it is. It’s in Best Buy, it’s on Amazon, it’s in T-Mobile and AT&T stores, it’s just fucking here. If you have a Samung phone already, spending $99 on it...

Samsung Gear VR 2015

 

Such are the hazards of reviewing the Gear VR, the accessory built by Samsung with help from VR pioneer Oculus , which costs $99 in the US and £80 in the UK. In Australia you can pick up the Gear VR for AU$159.

The Gear VR's relatively low price belies a compelling VR experience, and the games are quickly catching up to the hype. The headset is fairly light, and offers a completely cordless experience.

It only works with some recent Samsung phones. The mobile VR experience still pales in comparison to more robust upcoming PC- and console-based options.
