no idea is these are any good (not my thing) but its currently half price reduced to clear for anyone who's interested. delivery is £3.50 or £2 c&c.

Escape the routine of reality with the new, affordable Freefly VR 3D Headset. It's designed to work with your existing smartphone (see compatibility below) and comes with a wireless controller for easy, convenient use.

The headset
The Freefly VR is a head-worn interface that glides you into a new world with stunning, interactive 360-degree visuals and sounds for a fully immersive experience when you watch a movie or play a game.

With a lightweight construction, soft leather finish, 120-degree field of view and fully blacked-out contours, this virtual headset provides a comfortable fit and blocks out the outside world, allowing you to forget you're wearing it as well as reality.

The smartphone slot on the front of the headset can easily be adjusted from 4.7" to 6.1" to securely hold your device in place.

GLIDE Bluetooth wireless controller
The Freefly VR comes with a wireless Bluetooth controller which you can use to shoot your weapon when you're playing a video game or press play to start the movie you're set to watch.

Compatible with these smartphones:
Works with most modern smartphones that tracks your 360-degree head movements and renders 3D visuals on their screens.

iPhone 6/6 Plus (does not work with the wireless controller)
Samsung S3, S4, S5 and S6
Google Nexus 5 and 6
Sony Xperia Z1, Z2 and Z3, LG G2 and G3

Has anyone tried this. How does its lenses compare to oculus rift? I know the overall effect isnt as good but I've tried a couple of cardboard devices from china and although they have been good, the lenses seem a lot smalled than the rift. Because of this it gives the effect of looking into a box

That's pretty much the difference between mobile VR and console/PC VR.

i had one, only sent it back as for the price I paid (£50) it was too much.

I've also had the Samsung Gear and while that's a more polished product, I would say the Freefly VR has better optics. The FOV (field of view) is also better than the Gear and from what I've read, both are better than the Oculus.

At the end of the day, I think you're asking the wrong question. You can't compare any phone-based VR headset with a next-gen PC powered VR headset. What you can compare the is technical specifications of the optics and the FOV.

Based on that, I'd say this is a very good headset and easily the best you'll find for the money. If I had £80 I would still buy this over the Gear VR - the gear VR simply isn't worth it's RRP.

As fo Oculus - well, if you've got a powerful enough PC and the money to spend AND you're really into VR then perhaps it's worth it for you.

The other thing I'd mention is that Oculus does spatial head-tracking - so you lean to the side (look around a corner in a game for example) and the oculus tracks that movement - no phone-based VR headsets currently do that.

Yep I fully understand the fact that PC based VR would be better quality. I'd just like to find a cardboard headset that doesn't look like I'm looking into a box

This is going to be the best you'll get. I've tried the cheap VR headsets (mainly from china via GearBest) and they are terrible - like looking through a couple of loo-rolls!

This headset has a very good FOV - that's what you're looking for.

No idea why this is cold, easily the best headset you can get for mobile VR.
I paid £50 for mine and don't regret it, at this price it's a bargain.

The bundled controller is a bit naff, but I had a Xiaomi game pad around that works great.

can it be used with honor 7?
