These any good?

Most think so...
It's limited to certain Samsung handsets but it is better than generic headsets in that it has external controls (including touch pad) and grants access to some premium titles through the Occulus store.

Look towards the end of the previous thread for some feedback

If you have a compatible phone then get one. It's not life changing at the moment but it's a fun novelty.

The screen door effect is noticeable and phone graphics are comparable to the PS2.

Damn you HotUKDeals, not supposed to be spending money this month and in the last 12 hours I have ordered a case of wine, some Ralf Lauren trainers and now one of these....... Must resist the deals. I smell a conspiracy

Yeah, I've saved so much money here it's cost me a sodding fortune.

I bought one of these for just under £40 when I missed out on the last deal. Watching my mum have a virtual rollercoaster ride is quite possibly the funniest thing I've seen in my life. It's a gimmick, and I'm sure the novelty wears off, but it's fun to experience, and at this sort of money you can resell with minimal losses. Definitely hot.

Looks like they've sold out again thought.

I got mine free with my S7E, the picture quality is poor, but BLOODY WOW it is immersive, alas i gave mine back as using it was never a 10-20min thing, you kind absorbed/immersed into it. Can only imagine as the tech improves we will all be like that movie Surragates

All gone, damn that's good

do these work with a Galaxy S7 that has a cover on the phone? or do you have to keep removing the cover? Asking as I find removing the cover off my phone to be a pain in the ass as its so tight fitting

Went for the 'missing usb c and user manual' at £29.97. Will be used with S7 edge so missing usb c connector isn't an issue and manual available online.
Reckon I'll have the dettol wipes on hand when it arrives though.... Anyone who's bought before care to comment on condition?

Thanks, got one with missing usb cable which i don't need. Hopefully condition will be good. Never used VR before so will be cool to see what it's like. Was £29.96

No, I have a Spigen tough armour case on mine and it needs to come off which is a pain. It fits on with a vinyl wrap but not with any casing around it.

For anyone who's just bought one, you are in for a treat.

Whatever you're expecting, you're about to be blown out of the water.

​I have the candyshell speck grip and also the UAG case... both are really hard to get off! do you find that with the Spigen?

Well, I went for the 'Damaged Box' one for £40.97, but confused with the description.

It's listed as 'Used' at the top of the page, but further down the page it's referred to as 'New Other'

"When an item is listed as "New Other" it means the product is new and unused, with absolutely no signs of wear"

Then further down the page is says:
"New Other products come with our 12 month guarantee from the date of purchase. If your product becomes faulty please contact us via the eBay Message Centre"

It's not easy. But it gets easier after a few times.

Just received mine - paid extra for dpd delivery as away next week. Headset appears brand new and only missing a cheap usb cable so for £33 or so I'm very happy. Thanks op for a very good find.

Loads back in stock.

Mine just arrived. Condition as stated, although I'll take their claim it's been cleaned with a generous pinch of salt due to the (what I hope!) is food stuck to the touchpad. Dettol to the rescue....

Just received mine today. All that was missing was the usb cable. Does anyone know of open source app stores? I've seen Sideload Vr just wandering if there were any others out there.

Can these be used with glasses?

Yes - the 2016 model was designed to allow glasses.

Still in stock

wish I could use this without having to keep taking the cover off my Galaxy S7. How are these any better than the cheap Google cardboard type? apart from strapping it onto your head.. what do they do differently?

The Gear VR has the same motion sensing components built in as the Rift, which are more accurate and sample at a higher rate than the phones own accelerometer and gyroscopes.

They also have the buttons and touchpad built into the side for interacting with the headset on.

Taking it out of the case is a pain, but it's a better experience than cardboard can offer.

Hoping someone can help me. I've just purchased via Currys eBay. The one I've bought is as follows:THIS ITEM HAS MISSING ACCESSORIES: Missing USB Type C Connector & Micro USB to USB C Adaptor. Initially I thought this is not a problem as I'm using an S7 with micro USB. I'm now wondering if the missing adaptor means I won't be able to use it?

​Thanks. I did think that might be the case, although it says it's missing the type c connector and adaptor, so I was kind of hoping they were other bits. Will wait and see what condition it's in generally I think, and then either send back or buy the missing part from Fonejoy.
